Frankfurt vs Rangers Team News

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

For Rangers, Alfredo Morelos and Filip Helander remain on the sidelines, while Kemar Roofe is in a race to get fit.

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

Frankfurt vs Rangers Prediction

Both teams will be far from happy with their domestic results this season, but will see their exploits in Europe as a more than satisfying compromise.

Rangers had to endure Celtic’s rise to the top of the Scottish football tree, while Frankfurt finished 11th in the Bundesliga thanks to a slightly better goal difference than those around them.

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

Rangers regularly send teams to Scotland and their 3-1 win over RB Leipzig in the semi-final second leg will go down as one of their finest nights in recent history, but I’m afraid it’s a step too far for Giovanni van Bronckhorst. & Co.
