Aribo, Balogun inspires Rangers to Europa League round of 16 Qualification

The duo of Joe Aribo and Leon Balogun were on parade for Rangers FC in their second leg round of 32 win over Royal Antwerp on Thursday.

Aribo played the entire duration of the game, but Leon Balogun was subbed off before the restart in the 5-2 victory at the Ibrox.

 


There are reports Balogun may have picked up a knock that forced Steven Gerrard into a substitution early in the game.

 

It would be recalled the Scottish giants, also won the first-leg 4-3 in Belgium and both players featured in the match.

 

Alfredo Morelos, Nathan Patterson and Ryan Kent gave Rangers a 3-1 lead in the first half, while two second half penalties from Borna Barisic and Cedric Itten sealed their passage into the next round.

 

Aribo and Balogun are expected to be called by Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr for next month’s AFCON qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho.
