Recall that Rangers and Eintracht Frankfurt met at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium in Seville for the 2022 UEFA Europa League final on Wednesday night.
Reports claimed that nearly 100,000 Rangers supporters traveled from Glasgow to Seville for the final game. Most of them could not get tickets to the 42,700-capacity stadium due to the limited capacity of the stadium.
Also, over 50,000 Eintracht Frankfurt fans traveled from Germany to Spain for the Europa League final. Most of them were not allowed into the stadium due to the stadium’s capacity.
Hence, most fans of the two clubs hung out outside the stadium, and others went to bars around the city of Seville to watch the match.
During the game, Rangers took the lead in the 57th minute thanks to a fine strike from Nigerian international Joe Aribo. But the lead did not last for too long before Eintracht Frankfurt scored the equalizer in the 69th minute, thanks to a strike from Rafael Borre.
Afterward, the game was settled through penalty shootouts. Unfortunately for Rangers, Aaron Ramsay missed one of their five spot-kicks while Frankfurt went on to score all their kicks.
Hence, Eintracht Frankfurt won their second Europa League title in the history of the club after beating Rangers 5-4 on penalties on Wednesday, May 18, 2022.
