How to watch: Galavision in the US, and you can find that as part of the Fubo lineup. (If you’d like a free trial, click here!!)

The group standings: In the other match this morning, Rapid Wien scored two goals in the last 10 minutes to shock Spartak Moscow, 2-1. Rapid are on 7, Villarreal 6, Rangers 5, Spartak 5.

What this means is Villarreal could conceivably go through with two draws in their net two matches, rather than needing a win. Rangers, meanwhile, now know that even if they lose today, they would have a chance to get in if they can win in Austria. A win for Villarreal, and they’re in the round of 32; a win for Rangers, and they only need a draw in their last match to progress. Got it?

The lineups:

Villarreal go with Fernandez, Mario, Alvaro, Funes Mori, Jaume, Caseres, Morlanes, Trigueros, Fornals, Toko Ekambi, Bacca.

Subs: Sergio Asenjo, Gerard, Sansone, Pedraza, Cazorla, Bonera, Chukwueze.

Rangers XI is McGregor, Tavernier, Worrall, Goldson, Flanagan, Coulibaly, Jack, Arfield, Candeias, Morelos, Middleton.

Subs: Foderingham, Ejaria, Halliday, Ross McCrorie, Grezda, McAuley, Lafferty.

ENDAVANT VILLARREAL!!!!
