Frankfurt have defeated Barcelona and West Ham en route to Sevilla and are undefeated as they prepare for their 12th game of the season.
Rangers defeated Braga and RB Leipzig in the quarter-finals and semi-finals to reach their first European final since losing to Zenit in 2008.
Frankfurt is going for their second European title after winning the Uefa Cup in 1980. Rangers are preparing for their sixth European championship, having won only one of the previous five, in 1972.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Rangers team news
For Frankfurt, the absence of Martin Hinteregger is a significant setback at the back in their 3-4-2-1 formation. Almamy Toure is anticipated to deputize, and he will likely be accompanied by Evan Ndicka, who has recovered from an injury scare. Daichi Kamada will aim to add to his five Europa League goals thus far.
Alfredo Morelos and Filip Helander remain out for the Rangers, but Kemar Roofe has been certified fit.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst made ten changes for the last game of the season, which means James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, and Joe Aribo will all be fresh for the trip to Spain. Amad Diallo will look to finish his loan stay at Manchester United on a strong note, although he is unlikely to start.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Rangers prediction
Both teams will be dissatisfied with their domestic performances this season, but will see their achievements in Europe as a more than enough compensation.
Rangers have had to watch Celtic reclaim the top spot in Scottish football, while Frankfurt ended 11th in the Bundesliga owing to a slightly better goal differential than those around them.
Frankfurt’s last domestic victory came in March, but impressive wins over Barcelona and West Ham en route to the Sevilla climax demonstrate that they have created a recipe for success in Europe.
Rangers are consistently dispatching opponents in Scotland, and their 3-1 triumph over RB Leipzig in the semi-final second leg will go down as one of their finest evenings in recent history, but I think Giovanni van Bronckhorst & Co. have gone too far.
Eintracht Frankfurt 1-0 Rangers
