Union Saint-Gilloise will travel to Glasgow Rangers for the second leg of the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday evening.

Union will kick off at 8.45 pm with the advantage after a 2-0 victory on Tuesday over last season's Europa League finalists in a heated Den Dreef stadium in Leuven, as the Joseph Marien stadium is not approved for European standards.

Teddy Teuma and Dante Vanzeir, from the penalty spot, scored the goals for Union. After the euphoria of a European night victory on Tuesday, Union fell back to earth on Saturday when they travelled to Mechelen in the league with a 3-0 defeat.

Karel Geraerts’ troops will have to show a different face on Tuesday in the Ibrox stadium, which will be sold out with 50,000 people, to continue dreaming of the Champions League group stage.

If they qualify, the Unionistes will face the winner of Monaco, coached by Philippe Clement, and PSV Eindhoven. The two teams played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Monaco last Tuesday.

Should Union be eliminated, the Brussels club, which is making its return to Europe after a 58-year absence, will be dropped straight into the Europa League group stage.
