Eintracht Frankfurt won the Europa League final 6-5 on penalties on Wednesday. After regulation time, it was 1-1 after goals from Joe Aribo (57′) and Rafael Borré (69′). No more goals were scored in extra time.

Trapp then made the difference in the penalty shoot-out. The National goalie saved Aaron Ramsey’s shot. All other shooters scored. Borré was the last Frankfurt shooter to win the first international title since 1980. Eintracht will play in the Champions League next season.

Eintracht had to put up with the first shock in the 6th minute. John Lundstram went into a high-leg duel with Sebastian Rode, hitting the ball first but then hitting the Frankfurt captain with the stud in the face. Covered in blood, the midfielder had to be treated for a few minutes, but was then able to continue playing. In addition, no one knew exactly why Lundstram didn’t see a card for this.

The Hessians then needed a few minutes to find their way into the game, but then had the first small chances. It only became really dangerous with a shot from Ansgar Knauff, which Rangers keeper Allan McGregor fished out of the corner (20th). Glasgow did not take place for a long time. The Rangers almost scored the first goal in the 26th minute. A powerful long-range shot from striker Aribo just missed the goal. Trapp would have been powerless.

The same picture emerged in the second half: Eintracht dominated the game and had the first good opportunity through Lindström, whose deflected shot missed the goal by centimeters (49′). A chain of errors by the Hessians then put the Scots in front.

A high ball that was actually not dangerous slipped over Djibril Sow’s head first, Tuta stumbled in the running duel with Ariba and the Nigerian had no trouble scoring the first goal of the game alone in front of Trapp (57th). To make matters worse, Tuta was injured during the action and had to leave the field injured. Makoto Hasebe came in for him.

Borré sends the SBU into overtime

The good news: Eintracht was not deterred by the double blow to the pit of the stomach. The Rangers also made a serious defensive mistake, and Daichi Kamada almost benefited. The lob of the Japanese only landed on the gate roof (67th).

But that was forgotten two minutes later: Borré threw himself into a cross from Filip Kostic and jabbed the ball into the net to make it 1-1. And because not much happened after that, it went into overtime.

Trapp saves Eintracht on penalties

Again, it was a defensive error that made the first chance possible. Calvin Bassey lost the ball to Borré, but caught up with the Colombian in a sprint duel and was able to block the shot (95′). It was no longer a nice game, but an intense one. You could see the wear and tear on both teams. Every sprint now had to be carefully considered. And then suddenly Ryan Kent had victory on his feet, but failed from four meters at the outstanding Trapp (118th), who also defused a free kick from James Tavernier in the last minute.

In the penalty drama, the Frankfurters then kept their nerves, converted all penalties and were crowned the kings of Europe.
