Hello and welcome to live coverage of the Europa League last 32, phase B, part deux, second leg ties. Rangers have already qualified for the next round, so there are 15 more places up for grabs. The kick-offs are staggered as usual, with seven at 5.55pm UK time and seven more at 8pm.
A gold star for the first person who shouted at their screen: “Hang on, 7+7 does NOT equal 15! Do you get paid for this? ‘The world’s leading liberal voice’? Liberal maths more like lol.”
Yes, the match between Salzburg v Frankfurt has been postponed (or, to put it in the parlance of our times, POSTPONED) because of a storm warning. It has been rescheduled (RESCHEDULED) for tomorrow afternoon.
That’ll be then, this is now: let’s look at tonight’s games.
