Frankfurt: Season Performance
Real Betis, West Ham, and even Barcelona couldn't outwit Oliver Glasner's Eintracht Frankfurt side during the 2021/22 Europa League tournament as Die Adler are unbeaten in the competition as they sail into this week's final with Rangers.
Domestic success hasn't matched their European glory this term, so a Europa League Final win and a placement in the 2022/23 Champions League tournament would certainly make amends for Frankfurt's disappointing 11th-placed position in the Bundesliga.
Glasner and company head to Sevilla after maintaining an unbeaten record through 12 Europa League games. Still, only two teams in the competition's history have remained undefeated whilst lifting the trophy in the process.
In addition to winning 11 of their last 12 Europa League games, Frankfurt has also scored in all 12 of these appearances. They've performed exceptionally on Spanish turf – see Barcelona and Real Betis as a reference.
The contrast between Die Adler's European and domestic journey is mind-boggling. Despite their Europa League dominance, they ended the Bundesliga season on an eight-game winless streak as they now face a Rangers squad who've been fearless in front of German competition thus far.
Rangers: Season Performance
A late Scottish Premier League comeback from Celtic saw them claim the 2021/22 title, and Rangers is left in second place. Perhaps the added fixtures on the calendar prevented Rangers from completing the task, but they still have a chance to lift a trophy in Sevilla this week.
While the dreams of consecutive Scottish Premiership titles didn't come to fruition, Giovanni Van Bronckhorst just witnessed his squad send RB Leipzig packing in the Europa League semi-final. They're also walking into the Scottish Cup Final next weekend.
Overall form for the Ibrox men has been positive, winning the previous 4 games in all competitions, and within those four meetings, Van Bronckhorst's squad scored at least two times. However, dissimilar to Frankfurt, Rangers has suffered 5 defeats in Europa League meetings this term.
The 55-time Scottish giants have notably lost 10 of their 14 European meetings when playing on Spanish turf. However, after sending RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund packing from the Europa League tournament thus far, they'll have minimal fears when facing the least successful German squad from the list of Bundesliga sides they've already met.
Europa League Final Betting Odds and Picks
The best sportsbooks favor Frankfurt to keep their unbeaten Europa League record intact. Still, we should throw all statistics out of the window because cup finals rarely correlate with recent trends.
Frankfurt seems to possess the winning formula in the Europa competition this term. Still, the absence of Hinteregger and Ndicka is going to harm this squad versus a scrappy Rangers squad that rested their key players this past weekend.
As previously mentioned, I'm not looking too deep into the Europa League statistics and the form of each side, and I believe we should focus on the betting value that ultimately sides with the Gers.
A plus-money wager with insurance – draw no bet – on Rangers is a worthy wager, although I wouldn't be surprised if the scoreline is level at the end of 90 minutes.
Score Prediction: Frankfurt 1 - Rangers 1
Soccer Pick: Under 2.5 Goals (-111) [1.90] [1.11u wager returns 1u of profit] at Everygame
