The French side will be without their central defensive pairing of Ned Zelic and Franck Silvestre. Zelic, an Australian, suffered knee ligament damage in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Nancy, leaving him on the sidelines with Silvestre, who has had a metal plate inserted in a shoulder. Rangers need to beat the French champions after the home defeat by Grasshoppers.
In the League, Celtic remained in touch with their great rivals only after an injury-time goal by Malky MacKay gave them a 2-1 win over Dundee United. Aberdeen stay third after a 3-0 win over Kilmarnock.
Ray Wilkins and Chris Waddle both experienced victory on a day they made their debut for Hearts and Falkirk. Wilkins helped his side to a 1-0 win over Raith Rovers on his 40th birthday in the first of his scheduled four games at the Edinburgh club while Waddle scored to help Falkirk beat Clydebank 2-0 in the First Division.
Waddle weighed in with his side's second goal before 3,701 fans at Brockville. The former Sheffield Wednesday winger, who has signed on a month-to-month basis, said: "The pitch was a great leveller, but it was a rare treat to score on a debut. There's a lot more to come as that's my first game since May."Reuse content
