Eintracht Frankfurt made history in the grand final of the Europa League 2022. The Germans won the final on penalties at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium, the temple of the king of this competition, and what better setting to lift the trophy of the second most important competition in European football .
SO WE TOLD YOU THE FINAL BETWEEN EINTRACHT FRANKFURT AND THE RANGERS
The Germans started out as favorites and came out to show that this situation was not accidentald. Facing some Scots with problems at the start, Eintracht was able to take the lead in the early stages but Allan McGregor thwarted two good chances from Knauff and Santos Borré.
After I got out alive Rangers grew in the game, ignoring their original plan to play from behind and focus his football on going long and winning divided balls. Van Bronckhorst’s were equally strong and after going through the dressing room they practically took the lead on their first opportunity. Aribo took advantage of a chain error by Sow and Tuta and defeated Trapp at base in heads-up.
It was his turn to answer Eintracht. Kamada was able to draw almost immediately with a vaseline that just went high Kostic put his team on his back from the left and made the bond with a boarding school on his side and a poison center in the heart of the territory Santos Borré sent to preserve for posterity for Bassey, who was the best of his team until then.
The fear of losing and fatigue then took ownership of the game and destroyed the resolution in the extra time when only Rangers were really close to goal with a shot from Ryan Kent that unorthodox but miraculously saved Trapp to keep Eintracht alive and enforce the penalty shootout.
The German goalkeeper was also a hero in the penalty shootout stopping the fourth penalty from Aaron Ramsey and giving the title to an Eintrath who turned all his shots and s into goalse was declared champion of the Europa League in the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán.
Eintracht adds second title to tournament and it is that they got this trophy 42 years ago and this edition has a special taste and has left great teams like Fútbol Club Barcelona, Real Betis Balompié and West Ham United. For their part, the group of Protestants could not break the curse that haunts Scottish football with this tournament, as they never won it and fell themselves in the final against Zenit in 2008 and in this one in 2022.
