Why you should back Eintracht Frankfurt 

Die Adler has been impossible to beat in this tournament, going 7-5-0 in the Europa League so far, while Rangers have lost five games (6-3-5). The Gers also have not been a strong road team in this competition, losing three in a row away from Ibrox Stadium and being held scoreless in the past two. The Frankfurt attack led by Daichi Kamada and Rafael Borre should have little trouble getting on the board against Rangers, who have posted just two clean sheets in their past 13 games.     

Meanwhile, Frankfurt has scored in all 12 Europa League games, with Kamada netting five and Borre adding three. Borre is the top scorer overall, while Kamada has nine goals, and they have combined for 10 assists. Filip Kostic has scored seven goals and set up 13. Frankfurt has never lost in five visits to Spain, and it eliminated Real Betis and Barcelona in the knockout stage before getting past West Ham. Rangers have lost 10 of 14 previous games on Spanish soil. 

Why you should back Rangers

The Gers come in with huge confidence after pulling off a giant comeback against RB Leipzig. They were down 1-0 entering the second leg, only to pull off a rousing 3-1 win to advance to the final. RB Leipzig was the second Bundesliga side Rangers ousted from the tournament. It also eliminated Borussia Dortmund, which finished second in the league, 6-4 on aggregate in the knockout stage opener. Rangers have scored 23 goals in their past nine games overall.

Captain and defender James Tavernier has led the Scottish power’s run with a tournament-high seven goals. He has 16 in all competitions and has set up 15 from his spot on the right flank. Joe Aribo (eight goals, seven assists) and Ryan Kent (two goals, eight assists) also play key roles up top for Rangers, who had a plus-49 goal differential in Scottish Premier League play. Veteran goalkeeper Allan McGregor, 40, provides fiery leadership for a sturdy back line.
