The city of Seville in Spain will open its doors to Eintracht Frankfurt and Rangers as both teams face off in a historic Europa League final which will cap off a fairytale ending for whichever side comes out on top. The kickoff is scheduled for 00:30 IST on the 19th of May. 

Eintracht Frankfurt will be appearing in their first European final in over 40 years, while Rangers have gone against all odds, and German opposition, of course, to their first European final since 2008. Who will have the dream ending, Eintracht Frankfurt or Rangers?

Teams Status

Eintracht Frankfurt Form and Team News

Eight matches without a win in Germany but three straight victories in the Europa League perfectly describe Eintracht Frankfurt’s priorities. They have their eyes fixed on this trophy and have already overcome the likes of Barcelona and West Ham to get here, scoring within the first 30 minutes in those three wins. 

Frankfurt have lived up to the billing in the past and are yet to lose to a Scottish team in their history, with three wins and a draw. However, they have lost all cup finals since the turn of the millennium. They have Daichi Kamada and Co. to look to for inspiration, with the Asian hitting five goals to inspire his team to the Europa League final.

Diant Ramaj and Martin Hinteregger will certainly miss Frankfurt’s most significant game this season with injuries. Jesper Lindstrom, with a thigh injury, and Danny da Costa are also doubtful to feature.

Rangers Form and Team News

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team have lit up this tournament, having faced opposition of Champions League quality in Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig. Another German opponent stands between them and the coveted trophy, and the Scots can now dream, even though Scottish teams (Celtic) have suffered heartbreak in Seville previously.

Rangers also have a poor history when playing on Spanish soil, with just one victory in thirteen outings, and have lost three away matches consecutively. They will hope history does not return to haunt them. Fullback James Tarvernier has been an inspiration this season with seven Europa League goals, and they will look to him for moments of real quality in Seville.

Nnamdi Oforborh, Ianis Hagi, Felipe Helander, and Alfredo Morelos will not feature in the Seville final due to injuries, and Jamaican Kemar Roofe may not be available for selection.

Tipster’s Angle

Finals are pretty unpredictable, but Frankfurt have a good record against Scottish opposition, winning thrice and drawing once in four meetings. They have not lost on Spanish soil this season, earning a famous victory against Barcelona en route to the finals.

Rangers have overcome elite opposition on their way to the finals and have produced some spectacular performances since barely making it out of the group stages. Here are our tips for this fixture:

Tip: Both Teams To Score @ 1.69

Rangers have met with German opposition four times this season, and both teams found the back of the net on three occasions. In all six knockout matches that Eintracht Frankfurt have played this season, both teams have scored on five occasions. A repeat of this outcome is likely on the cards and is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.69 odds.

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.24

Between them, Eintracht Frankfurt and Rangers have only recorded a result with less than two goals on three occasions since the knockout stages began. We expect a thriller in this fixture and at least two goals. Over 1.5 goals is available on the Sportsbet.io sportsbook at 1.24 odds.


As the Europa League 2021/2022 season comes to a close, the curtains will close on a famous victory for either side. Rangers are on a historic run for their first final appearance in 14 years, while Eintracht Frankfurt will play their first European final in 42 years. We expect a beautiful football game and a fitting end to this season’s Europa League competition.
