Philippe Clement reckons Rangers would send shockwaves through Europe if they can defeat Benfica tomorrow and reach the Europa League quarter-finals. 

Rangers have the opportunity to cement their name in Fridays's last-eight draw by knocking out the Portuguese outfit at a sold-out Ibrox. They displayed that they could match Benfica during the 2-2 stalemate in Lisbon last week and now Clement, who highlighted the quality his opponents possess, is desperate to surprise onlookers with a momentous second leg victory. 

"We need to above our level to qualify. Our fans are amazing, they give so much energy to the team. That can help to go above your level," said Clement.

"We're going to do everything to do that and with the support of the fans, that can give something extra. This game was sold out really fast. We could've sold the stadium two, three times. They're really excited for this game.

"We will be creative. The players are up to that. We are realistic also. We're not naive. We know that Benfica has a really talented squad with a lot of experience also. They have World Cup winners in their team. They have a lot of young, really big talents, who will go for a lot of money after this season. Players like [Joao] Neves for example.

"We know it would be a really big surprise in all of Europe if we could take out Benfica but we're really hungry to do that."
