Germany’s Eintracht Frankfurt and Scotland’s Rangers F.C will contest the Europa League Final.

Frankfurt eased past West Ham 1-0 at home in the second leg to earn a 3-1 aggregate win over the side from London.

Already up 2-1 on aggregate from the first leg in England, the Germans were helped by a raucous 48,000 crowd and an Aaron Cresswell red card in the 19th minute.

The left-back was sent-off for a foul on Jens Petter Hauge severely denting West Ham’s chances of turning the tie around.

The improbable became impossible when Rafael Borre scored the only goal of the game for the hosts in the 26th minute.

David Moyes was also sent off in the 79th minute for angrily kicking a ball in frustration as West Ham’s European run this season came to an end.

While their wait for a European final goes on, Frankfurt reached theirs for the first time in 42 years where they will face Rangers.

Rangers F.C reached the Europa League Final after overturning a 1-0 first-leg deficit at the Ibrox against RB Leipzig.

Needing at least two goals to progress further, the Scottish side put three past the Germans to earn a 3-1 win on the night and a 3-2 comeback win on aggregate.

Captain James Tavernier opened the scoring in the 18th minute, becoming the Europa League’s top scorer this season with his seventh goal, before Glenn Kamara’s long-range effort six minutes later extended the lead for the hosts.

Christopher Nkunku leveled the tie in the 70th minute on aggregate when he scored from Angelino’s pass but John Lundstram sealed the game ten minutes later when a defensive mixup from a corner allowed him to sweep home.

The two sides will face off in the final on 19th May (PKT).
