Giovanni van Bronckhorst exchanged three times in comparison in the Old Firm at Celtic Glasgow. Instead of Davies, Arfield and Sakala (all bank), Jack, Wright and Kamara started. With this, the Rangers coach chose exactly the same eleven of the first leg, which Leipzig had won 1-0.

Leipzig’s coach Domenico Tedesco also chose three changes after the 1: 3 in Gladbach: Instead of Simakan, Mukiele and Silva (all bank), Klostermann, Henrichs and Poulsen began.
double strike shocked Leipzig
As predicted by Tedesco before the game, the Rangers showed a significantly more offensive orientation from the start than a week earlier in Leipzig. In turn, the Saxons acted and lurked on fast switching situations, which were mostly carried out unclean.
With the first clear chance in the game in the game, Glasgow took the lead in the 19th minute: After preparatory work by Kamara, Kent prevailed, finally staged in the penalty area – through the legs of Orban – Tavernier, which was scored from a short distance to 1-0. For the fourth time in the current European Cup season, the Rangers captain had achieved the lead. And it came even better for the Scots. Against too passive Leipziger, Kamara scored the 2-0 (24th) with an accurate shot from the edge of the penalty area.
Aribo has to get out – Tedesco changes
So Suddenly RB was under pressure – and in the 28th minute Dani Olmo also had the first good opportunity for the Germans in the game, but briefly moved. On the other hand, Aribo, meanwhile, gave a huge chance from the best position lightly (29th). Leipzig struggled, but hardly took an aggressive manner against passionately fighting home side, so that the deserved Rangers leadership went into half.
After Glasgow had to change shortly before the break because Aribo had been hit by a free kick by Angelino on the temple (45.+2), Tedesco waived a change at the beginning, but switched a little on the offensive. Nkunku now moved to the center, Poulsen to the right and Dani Olmo to the left.
nkunku worth seeing, but Lundstram decides
Until the middle of the second half, Leipzig initially had more parties, but it was still not very creative. Only gradually was RB – Szoboszlai came for Dani Olmo (61.) – a little more powerful. And in the 71st minute it was actually time: after the flank of Angelino, Nkunku skilfully scored with volley acceptance – and compensation after the first and second leg.
The Ibrox Park was noticeably quieter after the goal and the Saxons were first on top. However, Poulsen sabed in a good position over the ball (75th), Henrichs, in turn, unnecessarily decided in good position to play into the void (79.). And so Glasgow succeeded in the Lucky Punch: After a standard situation, Gvardiol fended off after a treacherous arch lamp on the goal line, but Lundstram ultimately achieved the decisive 3: 1 for Glasgow (81.), no more answer to Leipzig.
In the final of Seville on May 18, Glasgow meets Eintracht Frankfurt, which prevailed against West Ham United in the second semi -finals. First, however, league football is still on the program: The Rangers receive Dundee United on Sunday (4 p.m.). RB also plays at home and has FC Augsburg as a guest (Sunday, 7.30 p.m.).
