Eintracht go up against Rangers at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Wednesday in a thrilling Europa League Final.

Naturally, Eintracht Frankfurt have their sights on staying undefeated when facing Rangers. In fact, Eintracht Frankfurt didn't lose a single match in Europe this season which so far saw them play 12 games.
In contrast, it is all or nothing with Rangers in the Europa League as they look back upon three wins and three defeats in the past six outings. In both the Quarter- and Semi-finals they overturned a 1-0 deficit from the first leg to book their place in the next round, but they go into the final as big outsiders.
