Where to watch Frankfurt vs Rangers on TV:

Frankfurt earned their spot in the Europa League final by beating West Ham United 3-1 on aggregate, picking up victories in both legs of the semi-final (2-1 and 1-0). Rangers, meanwhile, overcame a one-goal deficit from the first leg to beat German side RB Leipzig 3-2 in their semi-final.

This will be Frankfurt’s third major European final, and they have a 50% success rate as things stand. The German side lost in the final of the 1960 European Cup against Real Madrid but beat Borussia Mönchengladbach in the UEFA Cup final 20 years later. Frankfurt have been led by Daichi Kamada in the Europa League this season, with the Japanese forward scoring five goals so far. Should he score in this match, Kamada would be the first Japanese player score in a major European final, and only the second Asian player after Cha Bum-kun (South Korea) in the 1988 UEFA Cup for Bayer Leverkusen against Espanyol.

Frankfurt are unbeaten in the UEFA Europa League this season and could become only the third side to win the competition without losing a game, after Chelsea in 2018/19 and Villarreal in 2020/21. Only two sides have reached the final unbeaten but not gone on to lift the trophy – Benfica in 2013/14 and Inter in 2019/20, both of whom dropped down into the competition from the Champions League. Head coach Oliver Glasner is set to become the fifth Austrian manager to contest a major European final, after Ernst Happel (five times), Max Merkel, Herman Stessl and Ernst Dokupil. Only two of the eight such finals contested by these managers to date have been won by his compatriots, with Happel winning the European Cup twice – in 1970 with Feyenoord against Celtic and in 1983 with Hamburg against Juventus.

 

Rangers are the first Scottish club to reach the final of a major European competition since themselves in the 2007/08 UEFA Cup. They have reached five such finals which is as many as every other Scottish side combined. They became the first team in UEFA Cup/Europa League history to reach the final despite losing their first two matches (against Lyon and Sparta Prague in the group stages) in the competition proper that season. Influential right-back James Tavernier has been the leading attacking threat for Rangers, scoring on seven occasions in the current Europa League campaign, including five match-opening goals. He’s found the net more than any other player in the competition. On top of that, his seven goals are also the most ever by a Rangers player in a single season in a major European competition (excluding qualifiers).

Rangers have already eliminated two Bundesliga clubs from the UEFA Europa League this season in Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig. Should they lift the trophy at Eintracht Frankfurt’s expense, they will become the first team in UEFA Cup/Europa League history to eliminate three teams from a single nation in one season (excluding group stages). They’ve also played 14 matches in Spain in European competition before and have won only once while suffering 10 losses, although that match was the only time they have played in Spain as a neutral side, defeating Dinamo Moscow in the final of the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1972 to win their only European title to date. Head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst, meanwhile, could become the first Dutch manager to lift the UEFA Cup/Europa League title since Dick Advocaat in 2008, who defeated Rangers as Zenit coach.
