Eintracht Frankfurt confirmed itself as the sensation of this Europa League by getting a ticket to the Final. And they will do so as favorites after the surprise of Rangers.
A mistake by Cresswell, who was sent off in the first half. And a goal by Santos Borré. Sealed the ticket for the German team. That will return to Spain ready to finish off the feat.

However, they did so far from the electric and vertical team that has strolled imposingly through half of Europe. This time it was a practical game, made clear from very early on by an unfortunate action by Cresswell.
The West Ham defender lost his marker on a long ball after 20 minutes. And he sought to rectify it with a tackle on Hauge that ended in a sending-off. Gil Manzano had initially forgiven him. But the VAR rectified an action that was as clear as it was decisive.
A terrible start for West Ham as they are reduced to 10 men…

From that point on, Eintracht Frankfurt began to dominate the game. And before West Ham could absorb the blow of the numerical disadvantage, the only goal of the match arrived.
A run by Knauff, the Germans’ most influential player, was finished off by Santos Borré with a solo effort.

West Ham did not have much to do
With one more and two goals ahead, Eintracht Frankfurt knew that they only had to be disciplined to confirm their presence in the Europa League Final. West Ham, resigned and overly dazed, gambled their few chances on the set piece and the occasional gallop by Michail Antonio. But the Jamaican was too closely guarded and always stifled by the defensive support of the German backline.
West Ham had a couple of chances late in the game. Especially a shot from Zouma that N’Dicka saved on the line. But the truth is that the English team never gave the impression of being able to lift the tie.

Eintracht Frankfurt, who became the revelation of the tournament after eliminating Barcelona, will now be the big favorite in the Final at the Sánchez Pizjuán on May 18. By soccer production and players.
On the other side will be the Rangers of Scotland. Another team that knows what it’s like to be a runner-up like the German team. And that wants to lift the Europa League after 10 years in which they almost disappeared due to bankruptcy.
