The double of Ianis Hagi and a strike by Joe Aribo alone see the Light Blues travel for the second stage with a slight advantage.

But Ruben Amorim’s team has returned to winning ahead of the Euro showdown thanks to goals from Ricardo Horta, Bruno Wilson and Francisco Trincao.

Nabil Ghilas made up for a 2-1 last-minute goal for visitors, but Braga took a third in the 97th minute to secure the points.

Tonight’s win keeps Braga in third place behind Benfica and Porto in the Primeira Liga standings.

Gerrard and Co travel to Estadio Muncipal for Wednesday’s clash trying to secure a place in the Europa League last 16.

The Rangers enter the clash on the back of a disappointing 2-2 draw with St Johnstone.

Callum Hendry’s early strike detonated Saints before diver Flo Kamberi – who could come in to suspend Alfredo Morelos on Wednesday – fired home for visitors.

The scorer then became supplier as he skillfully shot Jason Kerr before driving a cross into the box for Aribo, who shot a low shot past Zander Clark.

But Stevie May punished the Light Blues in the later stages of the contest as he turned around and blew a low disc over Allan McGregor.
