LEON BALOGUN is confident Rangers can continue their unbeaten European run during the decisive double header with Benfica next month.

Steven Gerrard's side recorded their second Group D win as Alfredo Morelos netted the only goal of the game against Lech Poznan on Thursday night.

And Balogun is relishing the meeting with league leaders Benfica as Rangers prepare for their toughest tests of the section so far.

He said: “Nobody will go to Portugal feeling fear. I was once told fear was never a good thing to feel.

“We’ll go with respect for the opposition, same as we do with every team.

“These teams have all qualified for Europe, and we know all about the strength of Benfica.

“We don’t have to hide anything. The games we’ve played have given us confidence and the management team will prepare us well.

“We’ll go into games to win, not just to participate. We’ll have a plan that will show us ways to do that next week and it’s up to us to breathe life into the plan.”
