Frankfurt vs. Rangers – The Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in Seville will host the Europa League final between Eintracht and Rangers on Wednesday. Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team advanced to the final after defeating RB Leipzig in the semi-finals, while West Ham United was eliminated.
On Saturday, Rangers defeated Hearts 3-1 in the Scottish Premiership, while Frankfurt drew 2-2 with Mainz in the Bundesliga. This season, no Europa League opponent has beaten Eintracht. The team led by Oliver Glasner has dominated the 2021-22 competition, defeating Real Betis, West Ham, and Barcelona.
Frankfurt ended La Blaugrana’s hopes with a 2-1 semi-final first-leg win over West Ham before completing a historic European run at Deutsche Bank Park. Rafael Borre’s third goal of the season completed a 3-1 aggregate win over the Hammers, giving his side a chance to end a 42-year European drought.
Glasner made early substitutions with Seville in mind, and Frankfurt had won 12 Europa League games this season en route to their third European final.
Die Adler have scored in all 12 Europa League matches this season, and Spanish soil has been kind to the German team in recent months – just ask any Barcelona or Betis fan. Frankfurt finished the Bundesliga season with an eight-game winless streak; their last three wins in all competitions came in the Europa League.
Rangers have already defeated German opponents in 2021-22.
Frankfurt vs. Rangers – Betting Analysis
While Frankfurt have found a consistent formula for success in the Europa League, the absence of Hinteregger and doubts about Ndicka’s fitness are not music to the ears of the Adler faithful. Rangers can be pleased with their domestic performances this season, but their performances away from Ibrox in the Europa League have been difficult. Van Bronckhorst’s crop may suffer as a result of the extra rest period.
The Gers have done their fans and everyone involved with the club proud by reaching the final, but Frankfurt, accustomed to winning on Spanish soil, may be a step too far.
