Rangers’ Europa League opponents FC Midtjylland were in action at the same time as the Light Blues on Sunday afternoon.

The Gers crushed Hibernian 6-1 at Ibrox, in a performance that showed they have the potency to go all the way this season.

Gerrard’s side have scored ten goals in four days, as things look to have clicked in the final third.

However, while Midtjylland weren’t quite as emphatic, they registered a confidence-boosting win of their own.

The victory makes it two from two on the road for Midtjylland, who are yet to concede away from the MCH Arena.

It’s bound to give them some hope that they can pull off a Mission Impossible type raid in Glasgow.

Steven Gerrard’s side are huge favourites, heading into the second leg with a two-goal advantage and a rarely seen tally of four away goals. However, there’s still work to be done, and the Danes’ 100% domestic record suggests they have more in the locker than they showed first time around.
