Rangers are on the verge of scripting a glorious chapter in their illustrious history as they are set to lock horns with Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League final. Both the underdogs eliminated a plethora of title favourites throughout the tournament and the Wednesday night tie in Seville is tipped to be a battle of sheer grit, determination and spirit en route to conquering the European crown by overcoming their domestic disappointment.

Rangers vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Talking Tactics

Giovanni van Bronckhorst must stick to his usual 4-2-3-1 despite opting for a 4-3-3 in recent games. The ‘double pivot’ deep down the midfield offers more balance and composure in terms of dominating possession and forming swift counter-attacking threats.

Oliver Glasner, on the other hand, prefers a 3-4-3 which at times shifts as a 5-4-1 or 3-4-2-1 based on opponents’ gameplan and strategy. The Austrian’s game-reading trait might make a difference in this epic finale.

Team News


Rangers striking ace Alfredo Morelos, as well as Ianis Hagi and Filip Helander, are ruled out for the season. Kemar Roofe, too, is nursing an injury, however, there is cautious optimism within the Gers camp over his availability. Ryan Jack is expected to recover from his minor knock and claim a starting status alongside John Lundstram.

Rangers Predicted XI

Allan McGregor; James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Calvin Bassey, Borna Barisic; John Lundstram, Ryan Jack; Joe Aribo, Glen Kamara, Ryan Kent; Fashion Sakala.

Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht Frankfurt, meanwhile, are hopeful to have Jesper Lindstrom back who has recovered from a hamstring strain picked up against West Ham United in the first leg of their semifinal clash. But the likes of Martin Hinteregger, Diant Ramaj and Danny da Costa might remain sidelined due to their respective injury problems.

Eintracht Frankfurt Predicted XI

Kevin Trapp; Almany Toure, Evan Ndicka, Tuta; Ansgar Knauff, Djibril Sow, Sebastian Rode, Filip Kostic; Daichi Kamada, Jesper Lindstrom, Rafael Santos Borre.

Key Men


Although a right fullback, skipper James Tavernier is the leading scorer of this season’s Europa League. His attacking involvement, Lundstram’s driving runs as well as Ryan Kent’s flair and pace down the wide should decide Rangers’ fortune this midweek.

Lindstrom and Daichi Kamada might cause menace in the Light Blues’ defence from both the flanks. The experience of Filip Kostic and Sebastian Rode should help them dominate the show against the Scottish hotshots.
