Euro giants could be heading out

Borussia Dortmund look on the verge of a Europa League exit after a remarkable result against Rangers.

The German side were one of the heavyweights to drop out of the Champions League group stages and into the Europa League, and faced the Scottish champions on Thursday night in Germany.

Amazingly, though, they were put to the sword and lost 4-2, meaning they are staring down the barrel of elimination from the tournament.

Rangers actually had a 3-0 lead on the night, as James Tavernier scored a penalty and then Alfredo Morelos and John Lundstram added a second and third.

Jude Bellingham pulled a goal back before a Dan Axel Zagadou own goal gave Rangers a 4-1 advantage.

Raphael Guerreiro scored what could be a vital away goal later on, in the 82nd minute, but Dortmund will have to pull off a remarkable performance in Scotland to progress.

The Hammers, of course, have safe passage into the next round and will be waiting for the results of the second legs to see who progresses into the quarter-finals.

There were some other heavy-hitters playing on Thursday, with Barcelona facing Napoli, and drawing 1-1 at Camp Nou, meaning they will have to score in Italy to progress.

  1. Away goals do not count double this season .. Personally, I don’t agree with that .. I thought that away goals added something ..

  2. The away goals rule has been scrapped .
