Super Eagle’s and Rangers FC defender, Leon Balogun was on target as Rangers record a 2-0 victory over Bronby in their Europa League encounter on Thursday night. This makes it two goals in all matches this season for the Nigerian.
Leon Balogun opened the scoring in the 18th minute, after netting home an header from a corner kick assisted by Tavernier. The Host doubled their first half lead after a goal from Kemar Roofe saw Rangers beat Brondby 2-0 at Ibrox to keep alive their hopes of progressing to the knockout stages of the Europa League.
Rangers had lost their opening two Group A matches, making this a vital clash for Steven Gerrard’s side.
As a result, Rangers have moved up to third in the group at the halfway stage, a point behind Sparta Prague in second ahead of their return meeting at Brondby on November 4.
Meanwhile, a short list of Nigerian players on target in the Europa League and UEFA Conference League tonight includes; Taiwo Awoniyi (1), Victor Osimhen (1), Leon Balogun (1), Stephen Odey (2).
