Eintracht Frankfurt vs Rangers team news

Martin Hinteregger remains out for Frankfurt, which is a huge blow at the back in their 3-4-2-1 formation. Almamy Toure is expected to deputise, and should be joined by Evan Ndicka who has survived an injury scare. Daichi Kamada will look to add to his five goals in the Europa League so far.

For Rangers, Alfredo Morelos and Filip Helander remain sidelined, while Kemar Roofe has been declared fit.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst made 10 changes for the final game of the league campaign, meaning the likes of James Tavernier, Connor Goldson and Joe Aribo will all be fresh for the trip to Spain. Amad Diallo will be hoping to end his loan spell from Manchester United on a high note, though is unlikely to start.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Rangers prediction

Both teams will be far from happy with their domestic showings this season but will look to their exploits in Europe as a more than satisfactory compromise.

Rangers have had to endure Celtic climb back to the top of the Scottish football tree, while Frankfurt finished scrapped an 11th-placed finish in the Bundesliga thanks to a slightly superior goal difference over those around them.

Frankfurt’s last win of the domestic season came back in March but remarkable victories over Barcelona and West Ham en route to the Sevilla showpiece prove they have cultivated a recipe for success in Europe.

Rangers are regularly dispatching teams in Scotland and their 3-1 win over RB Leipzig in the semi-final second leg will go down as one of their greatest nights in recent history, but this may be one step too far for Giovanni van Bronckhorst & Co.
