Domenico Tedesco: “Rangers will have to come at us in the second-leg.”

Reacting to RB Leipzig’s 1-0 win against Rangers in the Europa League on Thursday evening, head coach Domenico Tedesco was happy with his team’s performance against a resilient Rangers side.

“A Europa League semi-final isn’t always a spectacle,” said Tedesco. “If it were, I’d have set Rangers up with a back four and more offensively to give us more space. We had a good second-half and worked some good opportunities for ourselves. You’re not going to get many more chances.

“Rangers will have to come at us in the second-leg, perhaps not right from the off but as some point they will have to attack. Kevin Kampl will be available for us again, he’s very important for us and he’s proven that often.

“I’m pleased that Frankfurt also won. We want to get to the final and if it’s an all-German final, that’s even better.”

Angeliño scored the only goal in RB Leipzig’s win, five minutes from time.
