In the final of the Europa League, Eintracht Frankfurt beat Rangers in the penalty shootout, 5-4, in the final at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan.

Eintracht Frankfurt won the Europa League for the second time in their club’s history after beating Rangers.

Rangers had half chances in the first half when Lundstram’s header was pushed over the bar by Trapp. Moreover, Joe Aribo’s effort went wide as the game was balanced. 

In the second half, the Scottish side struck first and took the lead in the 57th minute. Joe Aribo scores the first goal when Frankfurt’s defender slips and he bursts past him and scores with his left foot.

Later in the second half, Eintracht Frankfurt eaualises in the 69th minute. Borres scored an important equaliser when Kostic’s cross found him in the box to fire past McGregor. 

Both teams were all square at the end of the 90 minutes. So the game was headed to extra time. The game, however, ended 1-1 after 120 minutes of regular and extra time.

In the penalty shootout, Aaron Ramsey missed his penalty and it cost Rangers the Europa League trophy.
