PSV vs. Rangers live score, updates, highlights & lineups from UEFA Champions League playoff second leg

Rangers are just one game away from claiming a place in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2010.

Standing in their way are Dutch giants PSV and Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side need a special performance in the Netherlands if they are to make that dream a reality.

A 2-2 draw from the first leg leaves the game well balanced but PSV will be slight favorites due to home advantage.

Morelos hasn’t started a game this season and didn’t help his cause when he came on as a substitute at the weekend, only to see a red card 13 minutes later.

“I know he wants to play but to play for Rangers you have to be at a certain level mentally and physically – and at the moment he’s not ready to play,” said Van Bronckhorst.

65 minutes after kick-off: And this is how the visitors line up. Van Bronckhorst have made two changes from the weekend’s 2-2 draw with Hibs, with Glen Kamara and Malik Tillman taking the places of Ryan Jack and Rabbi Matondo.

75 minutes after kick-off: PSV left early with their starting eleven. Ruud van Nistelrooy’s team is unchanged compared to the team that started at Ibrox.

90 minutes after kick-off: So after last week’s 2-2 draw at Ibrox, we all go into today’s game on an equal footing.

Armando Obispo scored a draw for PSV in the first leg of their Champions League playoff showdown with Rangers – and spared his goalkeeper Walter Benitez’ blush.

Benitez botched a routine save in the 70th minute, letting Tom Lawrence’s free-kick slip out of his grip and squirming over the line to give Rangers a 2-1 lead.

The lead lasted just eight minutes when centre-back Obsipo headed home from a Cody Gakpo corner, with a delivery of Manchester United’s declared goal also leading to Ibrahim Sangare’s first-half opener.

Rangers were quickly level in the 40th minute when Antonio Colak’s intelligent finish from a James Tavenier first cross capped a beautiful team move.
