The finals of the European League were decided by penalties. Eintracht Frankfurt – ČT sport – Czech Television celebrates winning the trophy

Rangers’ Joe Aribo led the Rangers to Ramón Sánchez Pizjuan’s stadium in the 57th minute, but Rafael Borré equalized in the 69th minute. The goal did not fall in overtime, so as in last year’s final between Villarreal and Manchester United, they had to decide penalty kicks. Only midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who was caught by Kevin Trapp, failed. In the fifth series, the exact shot of the Colombian forward Borré decided.

Coach Oliver Glasner’s charges followed a 42-year-old triumph in the then UEFA Cup and secured participation in the next Champions League. “It’s unbelievable. Thirteen matches in Europe and we haven’t lost a single one. I have no words. We’ll be celebrating for a few days now,” Glasner said.

“We are all heroes. There is not just one hero, but all of us. Even spectators, without them we would not be able to do it,” said goalkeeper Trapp.

Frankfurt had more chances, the Rangers burned the tutu at the end of the overtime

McGregor, who became only the third player over the age of 40 in the final of one of the European Cups, was also present in the Rangers goal. An experienced Scot had a job in the beginning, but he neutralized Sow’s technical experiment and Knauff’s more dangerous blow to the pole.

Frankfurt was more dangerous in the forward direction, shortly after the change of sides just missed Lindström’s dotted shot. And so the Rangers struck on the other side, although Barisic still fired from a promising position next door. With 57 minutes played, Sow nearly put the visitors another one up as he broke through in the middle and fired from just outside the box, but his shot passed just over the bar. The Nigerian striker scored the first goal in this year’s European League.

Ten minutes later, he failed alone in front of McGregor Kamad, but then it was settled. With a sharp center on the left, Active Bostič found Borré among the stoppers and the Colombian representative placed the ball in the net.

The next goal did not fall within 90 minutes and despite the signs on both sides, it led to a draw and extra time. At the end of the set half hour, however, he got to the edge of a small lime to finish Kent and Trapp kept his team in the game with an excellent foot intervention.

And the German goalkeeper, unlike his counterpart, also succeeded in the shootout. In the fourth series at 3: 3, Ramsey, who came on the field at the end of extra time, sent the ball in the middle of the goal, where the falling Trapp left his feet and the Welsh midfielder’s attempt kicked. The other shooters remained 100%, including Borré, who didn’t give McGregor a chance with a shot under the crossbar.
