Is Rangers vs Napoli on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch the Champions League clash

After a 24-hour delay due to preparations for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, Rangers and Napoli meet in Glasgow on Wednesday night for their Champions League clash.

The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday but has been postponed for logistical reasons ahead of next Monday’s state funeral and no Napoli fans will be in attendance at the Ibrox, with a mutual agreement in Napoli for next month’s second leg to ensure that no competitive advantage is gained.

The Gers’ Scottish Premiership clash against Aberdeen was also called off over the weekend as a mark of respect after the Queen’s death, which perhaps did them a favour, purely from a footballing perspective. Giovanni van Bronckhorst will have had more time on the training ground to rectify some of the deficiencies that saw his side lose back-to-back 4-0 games – to Celtic in the Old Firm derby and then to Ajax in their first Champions League group game for 12 years.

In contrast, Napoli go into the game on the crest of a wave as they top Serie A, unbeaten after six games and last season’s Champions League finalists and one of this season’s tournament favorites Liverpool in the opener defeated 4-1 in Naples to blow Group A wide and give them the perfect start in their quest for the knockout rounds.

Here’s everything you need to know before playing:

When is Rangers vs Napoli?

The match takes place on Wednesday 14 September with kick-off at 20:00 BST at the Ibrox in Glasgow, Scotland.

Where can I watch it?

This match will be broadcast live on BT Sport 4, with coverage starting at 19:45 CET after the conclusion of Shakhtar Donetsk v Celtic. Subscribers can stream the game via the BT Sport app and desktop website.

What’s new from the team?

Tom Lawrence has missed Rangers’ recent games through injury and is likely to be out until the end of the month, where he is on the sidelines alongside Ben Davies, John Souttar, Kemar Roofe, Ianis Hagi and Filip Helander while James Tavernier faces a late fitness test for the Ger. Despite his recent struggles, Jon McLaughlin should hold off veteran Allan McGregor to keep his place in goal.

Napoli will be forced to make at least one change from the side that started against Liverpool as Victor Osimhen’s thigh strain rules him out and Giovanni Simeone will lead the line instead. After being rested over the weekend, Kim Min-jae and Piotr Zielinski should return to the starting XI but Hirving Lozano missed training this week as he battles the flu.

Expected Lineups

Rangers XI: McLaughlin; Tavernier, Goldson, Sande, Barisic; Lundstram, Davis; Tillman, Kamara, Kent; cola

Naples XI: meret; Di Lorenzo, Kim, Rrahmani, Olivera; Anguissa, Lobotka; Politano, Zielinski, Kvarachelia; Simeone

opportunities

Rangers 16/5

Draw 29.10

Naples 4/5

forecast

Rangers impressed at home during last season’s Europa League final but last week’s defeat by Ajax threw cold water on their save and a confident Napoli should be too strong. Rangers 1-3 Naples.
