It’s time for the long-awaited final of the Europa League. There are two surprises from this year’s tournament that are in final. All eyes will be on the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in Sevilla on Wednesday night.
Rangers have surprised us all
Not many people thought that Glasgow Rangers would make it to the Europa League final after Malmö FF beat them in the Champions League qualifiers. But now they are standing there, after winning a lot of matches where they were considered to be the underdogs according to the odds. It must be said that it is an incredible achievement that they are where they are. With James Tavernier as Rangers’ best goal scorer during the playoffs, they have a really interesting player who surprisingly plays right-back but despite that scores goals. Seven goals in 13 games is an incredibly nice result, including 3 goals against Dortmund in two games. Will there be additional goals for the offensive right-back in the final as well?
Turned inferiority into victory
In both the quarterfinals and the semifinals, Rangers turned the matches at home after losing away to both Braga and Emil Forsberg’s RB Leipzig. It shows incredibly strong morals and will. They are known to be very strong at home so it will be interesting to see how they act on neutral ground.
Frankfurt are very strong offensively
“Full speed ahead” is something that fits brilliantly into this flamboyant Eintracht Frankfurt team. With their quick conversions and skill, they have deprived many skilled teams the possibility to reach the final. Victory against Betis in the quarterfinals, victory against Barcelona in the quarterfinals, and then send West Ham out in the semifinals.
In the league, we have seen the very opposite, where the team didn’t achieved what they hoped for and ended up in 11th place in the Bundesliga. With only 45 goals scored in 34 matches, it is hardly possible to end up in a higher position. Then if we compare it with the 19 goals in the Europa League in just 12 matches, we get another story. How it will go in the final that awaits, will be incredibly fun to see.
Frankfurt have been in two finals before, the first in 1960 against Real Madrid, where they lost to Real Madrid. Their second final was in 1980, where they won two matches against Mönchegladbach. Will they be able to take home the title again after 42 years of waiting?
Today’s Game Tips from Casivo
Glasgow Rangers are in a good shoal, despite losing the title to arch-rival Celtic. The question is whether that’s enough, Frankfurt will be a really tough nut to crack and my feeling is that Frankfurt will win the match. What several teams have previously experienced is that they have underestimated Rangers. Frankfurt will not do that and I still want to say that Frankfurt has a better team than Rangers.
I play two games:
- Frankfurt wins the match at odds of 11/8
- Over 2.5 goals in the match at odds of 10/11
We place both games at 888Sport because they also offer a great betting bonus with a free bet worth £30.
