Aribo Targets 5th Europa Goal As Rangers Face Home Side SC Braga

Joe Aribo will on Wednesday be looking to score his fifth goal in 13 Europa League outings for Glasgow Rangers who will visit SC Braga of Portugal at the Estadio Municipal de Braga, Completesports.com reports.

The Super Eagles attacking midfielder dribbled from outside the box before cutting to his left to finish off an equalizer for the Gers who eventually came out 3-2 winners.


After inspiring the Gers to a comeback victory against Braga, Aribo continued his brilliant form in front of goal in a 2-2 draw with St. Johnstone in Sunday’s Scottish Premiership game.

The Nigeria international netted his second goal in two games in a row to help the Gers bag a point away from home and come Wednesday, he will hope to score for the third straight outing.

Aribo has now found the back of the net nine times and weighed in with eight assists in 43 appearances across all competitions for Rangers so far in the 2019/20 season.

The central midfielder will, therefore, hope to continue his impressive form when Rangers take on Braga in the second leg Round of 32 of their Europa League game on Wednesday.
