Oli Glasner’s side followed up their devastation of Barcelona in the quarter-finals by dominating West Ham in the semi-final. Frankfurt won 1-2 in The London Stadium last week and followed that up with a resounding 1-0 win tonight.

Ansgar Knauff and Daichi Kamada scored either side of a Michail Antonio striker in London while tonight Rafael Santos Borré finished off a slick team attack to bury West Ham and qualify for their first Europa League final since 1980 where they beat Borussia Monchengladbach on away goals.



The result also makes Frankfurt the first Bundesliga side to make the Europa League final since 2009 when Werder Bremen lost to a Willian-inspired Shakhtar Donetsk.

Glasner’s men will look to go one better than Bremen and win the competition, which no Bundesliga side has managed since 1997 when Schalke beat Inter Milan on penalties.

History seems stacked against Frankfurt, but the German side will be full of confidence. They have reached the Europa League final without losing a single game in the tournament, and they’ve played Barcelona remember.

Should they beat Rangers in Seville they will become just the third side to win the Europa League without losing a single game, joining Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea from 2019 and Unai Emery’s Villarreal from 2021 as unbeaten champions.

The win would also give Frankfurt passage into next season’s Champions League, which given the sheer dynamism they have shown in their march to the Europa League final, would be a thrillride like few others.

Much of the romantic narrative leading up to the final will focus on Rangers, but there is just as much history and narrative riding on a Frankfurt win and after the incredible performances they’ve given us, beating Real Betis, Barcelona and West Ham, and with all the mania their fans have generated with pitch invasions and de facto take-overs of iconic stadia, would be a beautifully fitting way to end a truly wilde Europa League campaign.
