Eintracht Frankfurt vs Rangers Prediction
Frankfurt just finished in 11th spot in the Bundesliga but can still qualify for Europe if they come out victorious in Spain. Oliver Glasner’s side didn’t win any of their last eight league games, playing to a 2-2 draw most recently on Saturday. That being said, Eintracht seems to turn it up when it comes to Europa. That has been their target for many weeks now as they have prioritized the Europa League over their domestic matches.
The German outfit beat La Liga giants Barcelona in the quarterfinals 4-3 across two legs, including a thrilling 3-2 victory in the reverse fixture. West Ham really proved to be no match for them in the semis either. In fact, Frankfurt hasn’t tasted defeat once in this competition, group stages included. Talk about a completely different team than domestically. In the final third, Daichi Kamada has led the way, netting five times in 12 appearances.

|4.7||Average Shots on Target||4.1|
Rangers just lost the Scottish Premiership title to rivals Celtic but still have the opportunity to win their first continental trophy since 1972. The last time they were in a European final, the Scots lost to Zenit Saint Petersburg in the 2007/2008 competition when it was still known as the UEFA Cup.

Giovanni Van Bronckhorst’s group faced an uphill battle heading into the second leg against Leipzig after suffering a 1-0 defeat in the return match in Germany. With the Glasgow supporters behind them, however, Rangers pulled off the unthinkable and ran out as 3-1 winners. Right-back James Tavernier continued his tremendous Europa campaign with an early opener, while John Lundstram and Glen Kamara also netted. Tavernier now has seven goals to his name in the tournament.

Frankfurt vs Rangers Pick
These two sides haven’t clashed since 1960 when Frankfurt beat them 12-4 on aggregate. That was so long ago it shouldn’t even come into play here, though.
Frankfurt is the only unbeaten team in Europa, even before others were eliminated. This club is really thriving and after such a forgettable Bundesliga season, they’ll be extremely poised to grab an impressive piece of silverware and book their place in the 2022-23 Champions League group stages. Rangers have gone on a promising run, but their continental record isn’t exactly anything to write home about. I’m taking the Germans to emerge victoriously within 90 minutes.
Pick: Frankfurt +128
