Eintracht vs Rangers: prediction and bets on 2021-22 UEFA Europa League, May 18, 2022
German Eintracht Frankfurt will face Scottish Rangers F.C. in the do-or-die men’s football 2021-22 UEFA Europa League final. The match will be played on Wednesday, May 18, at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium in Sevilla, Spain, starting at 9 p.m. local time (10 p.m. Moscow time).
The Europa League’s final line-up surprised everyone. Whatever one may think, Eintracht Frankfurt and Rangers aren’t European top teams, and teams with the prefix top or near to it have lately won the second-tier UEFA competition. Winning the next game is worth twice as much to both teams. According to the Bundesliga’s results, Eintracht were left without European cups next season, and now they have the opportunity to win not only a trophy but also a direct entry to the Champions League. While the Glasgow side is already qualified for the Champions League, a win in the Seville final will allow them to enter the group stage without having to qualify first. The current form of Eintracht Eintracht Frankfurt defeated West Ham in both semi-finals of the Europa League, despite being considered an outsider at the start of the round. Germans drew twice, 1-1 at home with ‘Gladbach and 2-2 away with Mainz, after winning 1-0 at home against the ‘Hammers’. Eintracht have 2 wins, 2 ties, and one loss in their last 5 encounters. The forthcoming match will take place on neutral ground, meaning away from home for both sides, but for Eintracht that doesn’t pose an issue. ‘The Eagles’ have performed admirably on the road this season, not just in the Europa League but also in the Bundesliga. They won 5 away matches and drew with Fenerbahçe in the 2021/22 Europa League. It’s also worth noting that Eintracht’s last 5 away matches in the EL have all finished with the wager that’s quite often on offers of bookmakers with betting bonuses: “both teams to score – yes”. The current form of the Rangers Unlike Eintracht, the Rangers’ next match won’t be their final of the season, as they will play against Hearts in the Scottish Cup final three days after the Europa League final. Could the tournament organizers have given the Rangers more time to recover and prepare? Especially because the season is coming to a close. The Rangers finished second in the Scottish Championship, 4 points behind Celtic despite winning their last 3 games. Unlike Eintracht, who excel on the road, the Glasgow club has struggled in the Europa League away from home. Yes, we all remember the 4-2 win over Borussia Dortmund in Germany, but there were three subsequent away defeats to Crvena zvezda, Braga, and Leipzig. The Rangers got it this far in the second most important European Cup thanks to an outstanding performance at home, without a question. So it’s no surprise that Eintracht is the betting favorite for the forthcoming match.
We mentioned earlier that Eintracht have been particularly confident on the road this season. Furthermore, ‘The Eagles’ have a win in Seville, albeit at the Betis Stadium, Benito Villamarín, rather than at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán. This season, this Spanish city has become fairly pleasant and lucky for Germans. The Rangers, on the other hand, have won all of their EL games at home, while being, at the same time, on a 3-match losing streak in the competition. We predict that this tendency will continue and that Eintracht will win the Europa League final, which will be played on neutral ground. The best possible wager: Eintracht to win the match at odds 2.33 at Power Sport.
