Rangers are one game from history. Fifty years on from their sole previous continental triumph in the 1972 European Cup Winners' Cup final, the 2008 beaten finalists meet 1980 winners Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2022 Europa League final. Half of Glasgow is making the journey to Seville for the showpiece, but the Andaluz city will be no less full of Eintracht fans, who famously turned Barcelona's Camp Nou into a home from home earlier in the campaign. Make sure you know how to watch an Eintracht Frankfurt vs Rangers live stream from anywhere in the world.

The teams are in and Rangers stick with the same XI that beat RB Leipzig in the semi-final second leg 3-1 at Ibrox. That means a back five with John Lundstram, Calvin Bassey and Connor Goldson as three centre-backs with captain James Tavernier and Borna Barišić the wing-backs. Scott Wright, Ryan Jack, Glen Kamara and Ryan Kent form the midfield four, with Joe Aribo ploughing a lone furrow up front. Aaron Ramsey, Scott Arfield and Leon Balogun are options from the bench, with Alfredo Morelos absent through injury.
Eintracht Frankfurt, meanwhile, make two changes from their semi-final defeat of West Ham as Almamy Toure and Jesper Lindstrøm come in for the injured vice-captain Martin Hinteregger and AC Milan loanee Jens Petter Hauge. That means top scorer Rafael Santos Borre starts up front, with flying Japanese winger Daichi Kamada to his left. Filip Kostic starts at left-wing-back after excelling throughout the tournament.
No one could accuse Rangers of an easy ride in reaching the Europa League final. The 55-time Scottish champions have already disposed of German giants Borussia Dortmund, Red Star Belgrade, Braga and RB Leipzig in the knockout rounds. Now they'll be looking for a German hat-trick in the final itself.
Manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has added an extra front-foot dimension to the Gers with James Tavernier and John Lundstram in the absence of injured top scorer Alfredo Morelos. Transporting the Ibrox roar, which helped overturn first-leg defeats against Braga and Leipzig, to Seville will be vital if Rangers are to go one better than they managed 14 years ago as beaten finalists to Zenit St Petersburg.
Eintracht Frankfurt have made it to Seville without tasting defeat in 12 Europa League fixtures this season. That's no mean feat given they've faced Fenerbahce, Barcelona, Real Betis and West Ham en route. The Eagles' focus has been on Europe for much of the past two months – they ended the Bundesliga season without a win in their final eight games – but their 3-2 win at the Camp Nou against a resurgent Barcelona will go down as one of the club's greatest ever nights.
Kevin Trapp offers experience in goal, Filip Kostic (who scored twice at the Camp Nou) is an excellent wide option and top scorer Rafael Santos Borre has a fine eye for goal up front. This is their third major European final, after losing 7-3 to Real Madrid in the 1960 European Cup final and beating Borussia Monchengladbach to the 1980 UEFA Cup.
It's an 8pm GMT kick-off at Seville's Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan stadium today, Wednesday 18th May, 2022. You can catch the 2022 Europa League final on Paramount Plus in the States or free on BT Sport in the UK but read on for more details on how to watch an Eintracht Frankfurt vs Rangers live stream wherever you are in the world.
