Tops / Flops Eintracht Frankfurt-Glasgow Rangers: Trapp and Borré as heroes against too shy Scots


The two heroes of the day on the Frankfurt side, but also impressive wingers for the Germans against too weak Rangers: find the tops and flops of this Europa League 2022 final.


Trapp and Borré become saviors

Kevin Trapp and Rafael Borré will be the heroes of this match, won in the penalty shootout (1-1, 5-4 on pens) by Eintracht Frankfurt against Glasgow Rangers.

Little asked, the German goalkeeper made only five saves during this match but he was decisive when necessary.

The former PSG goalkeeper, author of a fantastic parade in front of Ryan Kent a few seconds from the end (118th), before perfectly capturing the free kick struck by James Tavernier during the last ball of the match (120th).

Above all, the German stops Aaron Ramsey's attempt during the penalty shootout, giving his team the advantage.

After a timid first period, Rafael Borré distinguished himself after returning from the locker room.

He scored the equalizing goal for his team (69th) shortly after the

opener of the opposing score.

The Colombian striker takes responsibility by taking his team's fifth penalty.

With a heavy strike in the skylight, he offers the coronation to Eintracht.

Frankfurt's efficient corridors

During the meeting, the two wingers of the German club showed themselves to their advantage.

On the left, Filip Kostic used his experience to gain the upper hand.

Often just, the Serb is at the last pass on the goal of his team thanks to a love of ball deposited in front of the opposing goal.

114 balls disputed for the winger, who will give the advantage to his team during the penalty shootout scoring the fourth penalty.

His alter ego on the right also in legs.

The young Ansgar Knauff was impressive throughout the meeting, multiplying the efforts and the calls.

Certainly the most dangerous player in the current game.

Four shots in total for the 19-year-old German.

Aribo, the strongman of the Rangers

Several players have distinguished themselves among the Scots.

Defender Calvin Bassey was impressive in duels but guilty on goal.

Captain James Tavernier, more discreet than usual, but above the lot.

The one who really stood out in Seville was Joe Aribo.

Positioned as a scorer at kick-off, he was a poison in the opposing defense throughout the match.

About ten minutes into the resumption, he took advantage of a ball from the opposing defense to adjust Kevin Trapp (57th) and open the scoring during this closed but unbridled meeting.

Released at the 101st, Joe Aribo came very close to being the hero of an entire people.

The public, the only one at the rendezvous

The “12th man” played his role this Wednesday evening.

He was also the one who was the most present during this final at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán stadium.

43,000 spectators crammed into the bays of the Sevillian enclosure, distributed rather evenly.

A stadium lined with blues and whites.

It was the Eintracht fans who made their voices heard the most during the match, and even when the team was trailing.

In all, more than 150,000 supporters were present in the Andalusian capital.

The Blues of Rangers face the Whites of Frankfurt.

The too tender “teddy bears”

The "cubs" of Glasgow too shy during the meeting.

Weak technically, certainly scared by the stakes and exhausted after this long season (64 games in total), Giovanni Van Bronckhorst's players suffered from a glaring lack of experience during this final.

Six shots attempted during regulation time, only two that hit the frame.

Rangers never seemed able to win, even when they were leading the score as the Frankfurters were a notch above.

It was the clumsiness of the Germans (22 shots, four on target) that brought the two teams to penalties.

Clumsy Kamada

Not all of the Germans were good, far from it.

But Daichi Kamada stood out for his clumsiness throughout the encounter.

He tangles his brushes and annihilates a dangerous action at the start of the match (12th), before countering the strike of his teammate, who was spinning on goal (32nd).

Alone against the opposing goalkeeper, the Japanese misses his lob (67th), before being too close at the end of the match to cut the center of Filip Kostic (89th).

Daichi Kamada still scored his penalty... with the help of the post.


Wright proves his coach wrong

Aribo was the poison during this match, and scorer on the opener.

Kent was the blaster.

But where did Scott Wright go?

The Scottish striker was invisible during this match.

Only 24 balls touched for the 24-year-old player.

Above all, eleven possessions lost for Wright, who only managed one dribble out of four attempted.

He is the first from Glasgow to leave his place (replaced by Sakala in the 74th minute) after a gross foul on Kamada which earned him a yellow.
