Former Manchester City left-back Angelino late goal breaks Joe Aribo’s Rangers heart after he rifles the ball in from outside the box to give Leipzig the advantage in the Europa League semi-final first leg at Red Bull Arena on Thursday night.
Leipzig enjoyed the majority of the possession in the first half but weren’t clinical enough to open the scoring.
The best chance of the half came to the red-hot Christopher Nkunku after Rangers left-back Barisic failed to clear a cross before Super Eagles defender Calvin Bassey denied him at the second time of asking.
With five minutes to go, Leipzig had a corner which was headed away but only as far as Angelino just outside the box, who struck the ball on the volley with perfect execution, nestling beyond McGregor in the bottom left corner.
Leipzig held on to take a 1-0 lead to Ibrox next Thursday.
