What channel is the Rangers game v Hibs on? Is it on TV? Coverage details of cinch Premiership clash at Easter Road
That match is finely poised at 2-2 with the return leg in the Netherlands to come next Wednesday but before then is an important domestic date at Easter Road for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team.
Lee Johnson’s side picked up a morale-boosting draw in the Edinburgh derby with Hearts, and have goal hero that day Martin Boyle back within the ranks. The forward caused Rangers plenty of problems on Giovanni van bronckhorst's first sight of his new team in the Premier Sports Cup semi-final last November and the Scottish Cup holders will be wary.
There is plenty at stake in this lunchtime kick-off too.
Here is how to tune in…
Who: Hibs v Rangers
What: cinch Premiership
Where: Easter Road, Edinburgh
When: Saturday, August 20. Kick-off 12.30pm

Hibs have only defeated Rangers twice in the past five years – one coming last November in the Premier Sports Cup semi-final at Hampden.
That match aside Rangers won each of the games last term but all were hard-fought encounters with a penalty scored in each of the last three meetings.
Lee Johnson has admitted he faces a tough decision over whether or not to play Marijan Cabraja following the death of his father. The defender has been back in Croatia for the funeral and his manager will make a call closer to kick-off with the 25-year-old keen to play against the team he was linked with last January.
Johnson could have Rocky Bushiri and Josh Campbell back from injury but Demetri Mitchell, Lewis Stevenson, Kevin Nisbet, Kyle Magennis, Aiden McGeady and Elias Melkersen are likely to miss out while Martin Boyle and Paul Hanlon are still getting up to speed.
Ben Davies started his first match last weekend but had 'a little problem’ keeping him out of the midweek draw with PSV Eindhoven.
Kemar Roofe, Filip Helander and Ianis Hagi are longer term absentees while John Souttar has also been absent from the first-team since the opening day against Livingston.
