The Stade de Geneve will host Servette vs Rangers on Tuesday evening, as both teams set their sights on a place in the playoff round of the UEFA Champions League. Which of these sides will be left standing when it's all said and done?

It's important to point out that these teams met last week, and Rangers won by a 2-1 scoreline. With that in mind, Servette will have to overturn a one-goal deficit if they intend to play in the next round. Let's see how these teams could potentially line up for today's match.

Servette vs Rangers probable lineups


Goalkeeper: Joel Mall.
Defenders: Bradley Mazikou, Yoan Severin, Steve Rouiller, Nicolas Vouilloz.
Midfielders: Dereck Kutesa, Samba Diba, Timothé Cognat, Jérémy Guillemenot.
Strikers: Chris Bedia, Boubacar Fofana.

It's important to point out that Servette have a long list of absentees today; this includes Alexis Antunes, Jeremy Frick and Theo Magnin, who are all in the recovery room. Also, David Douline was sent off in the reverse fixture of this tie last week, and will serve a one-game suspension. The Swiss side are expected to line up in a 4-4-2 formation.


Goalkeeper: Jack Butland.
Defenders: James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, John Souttar, Borna Barisic.
Midfielders: Nicolas Raskin, Ryan Jack, Todd Cantwell, Sam Lammers.
Strikers: Cyriel Dessers, Danilo.

Michael Beale adopted a 4-3-1-2 formation in Rangers' comfortable 4-0 victory over Livingston last weekend, with Cyriel Dessers and Danilo leading the attack. The 42 year old is expected to use the same formation today, with a couple of changes to the starting lineup. Ridvan Yilmaz and Tim Lawrence are still sidelined for the Gers.

Player to watch in Servette vs Rangers fixture: Cyriel Dessers

We've established that Rangers defeated Servette in the first leg last week. It's also important to point out that Cyriel Dessers found the back of the net in that match. The Super Eagles forward has struggled to find his footing since he joined the club from Cremonese last month; as he scored just once in six appearances for the Gers. It'll be interesting to see how the 28 year old matches up against Servette's backline.
