Rangers are halfway there, now they just have to finish off the job. Last week, the defending Scottish champions beat German giants Borussia Dortmund 4-2 in the first leg of the Europa League last 32 in arguably the Gers' finest European performance since they reached the 2008 UEFA Cup final. Roared on by the home Ibrox crowd, can Giovanni van Bronckhorst and co complete a memorable victory?

The teams are in and Rangers are unchanged from the first leg, with Alfredo Morelos leading the line up front and John Lundstram anchoring the midfield. Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, recall full-back Thomas Meunier in defence and Thorgen Hazard also returns on the left wing. Emre Can replaces Dan-Axel Zagadou, who scored an own goal last week, in defence.
Rangers may be second to bitter Glasgow rivals in the Scottish Premiership, and drew unexpectedly with Dundee United at the weekend, but they proved last week they can go toe-to-toe with Europe's best. James Tavernier, John Lundstram and Alfredo Morelo all bagged in the Westfalenstadion and the 17-goal Colombian Morelos will fancy his chances of terrorising centre-backs Mats Hummels and Dan-Axel Zagadou, who put through his own net, once again. Manager Van Bronckhorst was part of the Gers side knocked out by Dortmund on penalties when these two teams last met in the UEFA Cup in 1999. Revenge would be sweet.
Limp despite a Jude Bellingham-orchestrated second-half comeback of sorts last week, BVB know they must be at their full-throttle best to progress on Thursday. Captain Marco Reus scored twice in the 6-0 shellacking of Borussia Monchengladbach at the weekend and remains one of Europe's finest attackers, while Donyell Malen also found the net. Malen will be under pressure to deliver up front, with Dortmund's much-coveted forward Erling Haaland still unavailable through injury. Marcos Rose's side have scored at least two in each of their past six Bundesliga games, but can they keep the goals out at the other end?
It's an 8pm GMT kick-off at Ibrox tonight, Thursday 24th February 2022. Read on for more details on how to watch a Rangers vs Borussia Dortmund live stream wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Rangers vs Borussia Dortmund live stream from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Rangers vs Borussia Dortmund live stream rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will 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.
Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days (opens in new tab)
ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – you'll be surprised how simple it is.
How to use a VPN
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is the one we recommend.
2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the UEFA Europa League, you may wish to choose 'USA' for Paramount +.
3. Then head over to Paramount+ (opens in new tab) on your browser or device and enjoy the Rangers vs Borussia Dortmund live stream.
If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). You could also try NordVPN (opens in new tab), which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark (opens in new tab) which offers 24 hour assistance.
