HT: Eintracht Frankfurt 0-0 Rangers

It’s half-time and everything remains square between Eintracht Frankfurt and Rangers in this Europa League final.

Kostic, Kamada and Knauff all had decent opportunities for Frankfurt which they didn’t take. Aribo saw a superb effort sail just wide for Rangers at the other end.

It’s been an entertaining 45 minutes but it’s still aimless.

Eintracht Frankfurt 0-0 Rangers

45+5mins: Knauff tries to get past Barisic on the right but the Croatian does sensationally to block the cross and drive away with the ball.

Rangers finally end Frankfurt’s attack as Kamara wins a free-kick from his side.

Looks like we’re going into the break without a goal.

Eintracht Frankfurt 0-0 Rangers

45+3 mins: LUCK! Great initiative from Rangers who are really starting to appreciate this Europa League final.

Aribo holds the ball superbly and slides it towards Wright. He hands it back to Aribo who finds Jack on the edge of the box but his powerful shot is way over the bar.

A disappointing finish for a silky piece of play from the Scots.

Eintracht Frankfurt 0-0 Rangers

44 minutes: Barisic sends a nice ball to Aribo who descends into the box under pressure from Tuta. The Rangers striker looks towards the referee as he wants a penalty but he never gets one for it.

This time it’s Frankfurt’s turn to attack. Tavernier loses possession then pulls Borre back. The advantage is played and Frankfurt forces a corner which gives nothing.

Tavernier another lucky player to get away without warning in this first half.

Eintracht Frankfurt 0-0 Rangers

42 mins: Borre unnecessarily nudges Tavernier onto the near touchline halfway inside the Frankfurt half. It’s another good chance for the Rangers full-back to send a ball into the box.

He swings it but Lundstram fails to get anything at the far post and the danger is temporarily thwarted.

But the Rangers retain possession and maintain their attacks. It’s a good end to the first period for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men.

Eintracht Frankfurt 0-0 Rangers

40 mins: Rangers are growing in this Europa League final.

Wright darts past N’Dicka and tries to send a ball into the box but this time it’s blocked and wide for a throw-in.

Frankfurt were the dominant team for around 20 minutes, but that feeling started to change as half time approached.

Eintracht Frankfurt 0-0 Rangers

38 mins: CLOSED! Lundstram jumps up to get his head on the ball and it loops over the crossbar before Trapp delivers a hand to flip it over the top.

Five more encouraging minutes for the Scots. They stopped Frankfurt’s momentum.

1652902651

Eintracht Frankfurt 0-0 Rangers

36 mins: Jack does a superb job of pressing N’Dicka into the corner and the Frankfurt defender mistakenly dribbles the ball for a corner for Rangers.

The corner comes and Lundstram gets something on it at the back post to stop him drifting for a throw-in. And then there’s a foul from a Frankfurt player.

Good position for Rangers to send the ball into the area.

Eintracht Frankfurt 0-0 Rangers

35 minutes: New chance for Frankfurt.

They escape with a free kick from Rangers through Kostic. The Serb carries the ball from one penalty area to another before firing a low shot through the goal which drifts a few yards wide. Should have done better.

You think if Frankfurt put their nose in front they could knock out Rangers at the break. The first goal will be so, so crucial in this final.
