Rangers to face Sporting in UEFA Cup quarters

Rangers have been drawn against Sporting Lisbon in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup.

The Glasgow giants, the solitary British representatives in the last eight, will face the Portuguese club at Ibrox on April 3 before travelling for the return leg on April 10.

Should they win their tie against the side who knocked Premier League strugglers Bolton out of the competition this week, Rangers would take on either Fiorentina or PSV Eindhoven in the semi-finals.

The Light Blues' reward for knocking German side Werder Bremen out in the last 16 is to avoid the tournament favourites Bayern Munich, who they could not now face until the final.

Should they make it through to the last four, Rangers will have the chance to avenge one of the defeats suffered by Everton or Tottenham, who were knocked out on penalties by Fiorentina and PSV, respectively, on Wednesday.

Bayern have been drawn against Primera Liga representatives Getafe, with the winner of that tie facing the victor of Bayer Leverkusen v Zenit St Petersburg.

The semi-finals will take place on April 24 and May 1, with the final scheduled for May 14 at the City of Manchester stadium.

It was disappointing the English clubs didnt make it.
What is it with English clubs and penalty shoot-outs.
Its ridiculous altogether.
I fancy Bayern for the win. They are more of a CL side than
a Uefa cup team.
