Rangers, who finished second in the Scottish division, have continued to dream big despite a poor showing in the group phase. Since then, they have eliminated Dortmund and RB Leipzig and are now gunning for their third triumph over a Bundesliga team.

BET ON THE EUROPA LEAGUE FINAL

The Scots last appeared in a final of stature when they lost the UEFA Cup back in 2008. Their history on Spanish soil is bleak with just one win in 10 tries while Frankfurt have already won twice on Spanish soil this season. And also have never lost to Scottish opponents.

Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking to snap their two-game winless run across all competitions after they played out to a thrilling 2-2 draw against Mainz in their final game of the Bundesliga season.

The German side made their way to this stage of the competition after a narrow 1-0 home win on Thursday over 10-man West Ham United to seal a 3-1 aggregate victory in their respective semi-final.

These two sides have never met before.

Rangers coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst says: “We’re facing strong opponents. They’ve played so many good games in Europe, including [against] some great teams as well, so we have to prepare well. They’re the third German team we’ve faced this year.

“We played Dortmund and after we had Leipzig. Those teams are a little bit different. They have the same style of play, but their formations are different.

[Frankfurt are] physically quite strong, they have good pace up front, and they’re good defensively. Their overall performances in Europe have been fantastic, so it’s going to be a really exciting final. We have to make sure we play to our strengths but also respect the opponents because they have quality. We have to make sure we are well prepared to defend well against them.”

Van Bronckhorst is also sweating over the fitness of Kemar Roofe, a player who has made a significant contribution in this fairytale run.
