With Celtic just one win away from effectively regaining the Scottish Premiership title, the blue side of Glasgow will be hoping European glory can make up for the disappointment of handing the trophy straight back to their city rivals. Rangers are winless in their last three home games against German clubs, but have already triumphed over Borussia Dortmund over two legs on their way to the semi-finals.

Rangers boss Gio van Bronckhorst has made three changes to the side that drew with Celtic at the weekend, with Ryan Jack, Glen Kamara and Scott Wright replacing Steven Davis, Scott Arfield and Fashion Sakala. Veteran goalkeeper Allan McGregor makes his 75th appearance for Rangers in the competition. 

After going 15 unbeaten in all competitions, RB Leipzig have lost two Bundesliga games in a row, which puts their chances of Champions League qualification under serious threat. Winning the Europa League could be their only route into Europe's top competition, so Domenico Tedesco will be hoping his side can find their form again in Glasgow.

There are also three changes to the RB Leipzig side that lost to Borussia Mönchengladbach on Monday night, with Lukas Klostermann, Yussuf Poulsen and Benjamin Henrichs in for Mohamed Simakan, André Silva and Nordi Mukiele.  

It's an 8pm GMT kick-off at Ibrox tonight, Thursday 5th May 2022. Read on for more details on how to watch a Rangers vs RB Leipzig live stream wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Rangers vs RB Leipzig live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you've subscribed to the relevant Rangers vs RB Leipzig live stream service, you won't be able to access coverage from outside your own country. The service provider will know your location based on your IP address, and automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

3. Then head over to Paramount+ (opens in new tab) on your browser or device and enjoy the Rangers vs RB Leipzig live stream.
