The title was the second European honour in Frankfurt’s club history and their first since 1980.
Eintracht Frankfurt won the UEFA Europa League 2021/22 after winning the final on a penalty shootout against the Rangers in Seville.

The German club came close to taking the lead in the 20th minute. Ansgar Knauff cut onto his left foot and struck an effort towards the near post, but Allan McGregor was at his best to turn it wide for a corner.
Both sides continued to threaten in the first half, but it ended without any goal. The second half started on a good note as both looked to threaten each other.
The scoring was opened by Teddy Bears who got themselves in front. After a stumble from Tuta, Aribo raced through on goal and coolly slotted past Trapp for the first goal of the evening.
Frankfurt didn’t wait and they did find the equaliser. Kostic’s brilliant cross found Rafael Santos Borre, who got the finishing touch to beat McGregor.
Match went into the extra time but we didn’t find the result. Like the previous year, both teams got ready for the penalty shootout. The Bundesliga won it 4-4 and secured the Europa League title. They also earned the Champions League qualification.
