Having been drawn alongside Braga, everyone associated with Rangers would have felt like they had been provided with the ideal draw to progress further in this competition.
However, a 1-0 defeat in Portugal, not helped by the absence of Alfredo Morelos, has left the Scottish giants with plenty of work ahead if they are to earn a spot in the semi-finals.
Despite failing to register a shot on target in that contest, Giovanni van Bronckhorst insists that Rangers can cope without their top goalscorer, and credit should be given for their bounce-back 4-0 victory at St Mirren on Sunday.
Kemar Roofe netted a hat-trick on that occasion, taking his tally to 15 strikes for the campaign, but several of his teammates also need to step up to the plate over the coming games.
The Glasgow giants have lost three of their last five outings, although they will take confidence from putting together a four-match unbeaten run at Ibrox in Europe, their only setback on familiar territory coming at Lyon in September.
Having played 45 minutes against St Mirren at the weekend, Aaron Ramsey will hope for a recall to the Rangers side in this competition.
Roofe will retain his spot down the middle of the attack in the absence of Morelos, while Leon Balogun and Glen Kamara should feature after remaining as unused substitutes on Sunday.
From the team which started the first leg, John Lundstram and Fashion Sakala appear likely to drop out, with Calvin Bassey and Ryan Jack having been passed fit.
Providing that there are no further injury issues, Carvalhal could stick with the Braga XI which deservedly emerged victorious last week.

Vitinha was sent off during the first half against Vizela at the weekend, but the forward is free to take his spot on the substitutes’ bench.
