Both Teams to Score
Rangers have scored in 23 of their last 25 matches in all competitions but have been shutout in their last two away matches in the Europa League. At a neutral site in Seville, there should be plenty of Rangers fans in attendance, however, there’s no doubting Rangers are at their best at the Ibrox Stadium. Two of Rangers top scorers, Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Roofe could miss the match, but that hasn’t stopped them from scoring in their last five matches.
Taking both teams to score in Eintracht Frankfurt matches this season has been easy money in the Europa League this season. It’s happened in nine of their twelve 90-minute matches and could happen once again. Frankfurt’s defense conceded nearly a goal and a half per game in the Bundesliga this season and they could be missing starters Martin Hinteregger and Evan N’Dicka on Wednesday. On the other end, Frankfurt were shut out by Real Betis in the second leg of the round of 16. They did, however, score in extra time to advance and found the scoresheet in the rest of their matches in the Europa League.
Frankfurt and Rangers were nowhere near favorites to make the UEFA Europa League final match when the knockout stage started but they’re both battle tested now. Rangers scored six goals over two legs vs. Borussia Dortmund and put three on RB Leipzig in the second leg of the semi-final. Meanwhile, Frankfurt have beaten Real Betis, Barcelona and West Ham. It’s no surprise that the Frankfurt vs. Rangers props odds list Both Teams to Score at -150.
Match Result and Both Teams to Score
Comparing Eintracht Frankfurt’s home and away record in the Europa League this season yields a curious result. Oliver Glasner’s side is just 2-0-4 at home this season but are an impressive 5-0-1 on the road. Their prowess away from Deutsche Bank Park may bode well for their chances in Seville.
The Frankfurt vs. Rangers props have a Frankfurt win and both teams to score listed at a mouth-watering +330. This prop has hit in four of their six road matches this Europa League season and they’re no stranger to playing, and winning in goal-fests.
Like Frankfurt, Rangers have found it difficult to keep shutouts in the Europa League this season. In fact, Rangers football team players have only done so once in eight knockout stage contests.
With three consecutive knockout stage losses away from the Ibrox, Rangers need to be at their best in the final. Neither manager or team is experienced in European finals, so a few mistakes here and there and a frantic pace wouldn’t be surprising.
Some other intriguing picks from this slate include “Draw” and “Both Teams to Score” at +330 and “Rangers win and Both Teams to Score” at +450.
Match Result and Total Goals
As both teams have longer than even odds to win, with Rangers at +210 and Eintracht Frankfurt at +130, there’s decent value on the moneylines, however, that doesn’t mean there aren’t opportunities to sensibly boost those odds. Combining totals with a winner is one of the best methods of doing so.
Both teams have conceded in most of their matches in the Europa League this season but they’ve most often allowed just a single goal. Frankfurt have allowed multiple goals just twice in twelve matches and never more than two. Meanwhile, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s Rangers are also yet to concede three in a match and have conceded two in just four of fourteen UEL matches.
Frankfurt can certainly cause Rangers problems with the likes of Filip Kostic, Rafael Borre and Daichi Kamada. Even if the prolific Morelos doesn’t suit up for Rangers they’ve found ways to get on the scoresheet with makeshift forwards and defenders like James Tavernier stepping up.
Some of the more intriguing result plus totals combinations include Frankfurt and under 3½ at +200, Rangers and over 2½ at +400 and Draw and total under 2½ at +330. There are plenty of other permutations worth a look in what should be a highly-watchable final.Follow us on Twitter
