Europa League: Lille vs AC Milan, Rangers vs Benfica & Sporting Braga vs Leicester City

The Europa League returns following an action packed international break and there is still plenty to play for in the group stages. Rangers and Benfica are locked at the top of Group D, after both making unbeaten starts whilst Leicester City will be putting their 100% record on the line as they travel to Portugal to take on Braga. Lille sit one point above AC Milan in Group H and with only two more games to play after these, it is now or never for some sides in the Europa League this year.
