Rangers have a crack at European glory on Wednesday night when they take on Eintracht Frankfurt in Seville and we take a look at the match from a betting angle.
EINTRACHT FRANKFURT FORM
Eintracht Frankfurt overcame West Ham in the semi-finals setting the foundation for victory with a 2-1 win on the road before winning 1-0 at home. In the quarters they had beaten Barcelona 4-3 over two legs and were particular impressive in the 2nd leg winning 3-2 in Spain. They required extra time to see off Betis in the Round of 16.
Frankfurt were in action on the weekend playing Mainz away in the League where they drew 2-2, their second consecutive League draw and they currently sit 11th in the Bundesliga where they haven’t won in their last 5 matches.
Rangers came from behind in their semi-final having lost 1-0 on the road to RB Leipzig only to storm back with a 3-1 home win. In the quarters they required extra time to beat Braga losing on the road before levelling matters at home before kicking on to win. In the last 16 Rangers had a comfortable 4-2 aggregate win over Crvena Zvezda with the foundation being set with a 3-0 home win in the 1st leg.
Rangers beat Hearts 3-1 away in the League on the weekend, but they remain 4 points adrift of leaders, Celtic. Rangers have won 4 and drawn 1 of their last 5 League matches.
There is no head-to-head form between these sides.

Eintracht Frankfurt 27/20
Suggested Bet: The draw at 5/2
Rangers have impressed in the knock-out stages, but the same can be said for Eintracht Frankfurt and I don’t think there is going to be much between these teams. Given this is the Final the draw looks nicely priced at 2.5/1.
Suggested Bet: Under 2.5 goals at 10/11
As mentioned above I don’t think there is going to be much in this one and I am expecting a tight affair. Looking at the recent records of the two sides there have been quite a few goals, but this is a Final and I think both teams will be looking not to lose the game before going out to win it.
