Borussia Dortmund was knocked out of the UEFA Europa League by the Rangers after failing to score two goals in the first leg. Borussia Dortmund was unable to overcome a 4-2 defeat in the first play-off leg, drawing 2-2 in the second leg against Glasgow Rangers.
On Thursday night, Borussia Dortmund suffered a setback in the UEFA Europa League when Borussia Dortmund managed to draw just 2-2 (6-4 on aggregate) in the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 play-offs second leg against ” Rangers.” Borussia Dortmund really missed the last chance to do something this season, going to the Europa League as favourites to win the Europa League and losing a total of 6-4 in their first draw in the competition against Glasgow’s Rangers.
Rangers eliminated Borussia Dortmund, one of the strongest teams to qualify for the Europa League from the Champions League, after a 2-2 draw at Ibrox Park in Glasgow, ending the round of 16. Jude Bellingham played the leading role, but Dortmund failed to make a comeback as the Rangers beat the German giants in the famous Europa League round of 16. The superb Jude Bellingham hit the post as Borussia Dortmund tried to defuse the raucous atmosphere at Ibrox. Still, after bearing the initial pressure, Rangers took the lead with James Tavernier converting a penalty in the centre after Julian Brandt fouled Ryan Kent. Captain James Tavernier opened the scoring for Rangers from the penalty spot, but the night before half-time, Rangers trailed 2-1, with Jude Bellingham and Doyle Mullen’s Goal threatening Dortmund’s comeback.
For the second time in the Europa League, James Tavernier opened the scoring with a beautiful clinical penalty, eliminated in the middle, and Rangers got off to a great start. The first few moments were only harbingers of another moment of Ibrox adulation and exuberance, with James Tavernier scoring a second solo goal to give the Rangers a break. As he had done in the past week, James Tavernier transformed with ease in the 22nd minute, and in subsequent moments, Rangers felt more confident in the first half.
However, Rangers calmed the nerves around Ibrox when James Tavernier scored again in the 57th minute. There should have been three in 66 minutes, even if it wasn’t the Rangers’ fault. Tavernier once again returned the ball to the far post and delivered a powerful volley under the crossbar in the 57th minute, lighting up the European hopes of the Rangers. A few moments later, when Borussia Dortmund rushed to the attack, Julian Brandt was decisive from the edge of the box. He equalised Allan McGregor’s formidable save, but the guests did not disappoint.
