In two minutes, Leipzig 1-0 Rangers

The amazing Leipzig line away

RB Leipzig struggled to beat a determined Rangers side in the first leg, relying on a brilliant gesture from left-back Angelino late in the game. But on the move, with more room to attack, the Germans are more powerful. In the previous two knockout matches, they tied at home before moving away from their bases. Moreover, facing opponents far from being unknown: Real Sociedad 3-1 and Atalanta 2-0. Rangers will need to go further in Glasgow, and with the likes of Christopher Nkunko, Dominic Zubuszlai and Dani Olmo, Leipzig have the talent and speed to beat the counter-attack.

Rangers killed due to injuries in search of solutions

Rangers were impressive defensively in Germany, but without the injuries of Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Rove, their attack disintegrated. The solution is simple for Rangers fans: pray that Rove gets fit. More accurate words for director Giovanni van Bronckhorst. “We need to attack at the right times with more players,” said the Dutchman. “But we can come back from losing 1-0. And they know how to do it. Led by Ibrox’s roar, Rangers achieved the same result against Braga in the quarter-finals, and helped tremendously with an early goal.

Frankfurt is riding the wave

“The match in Germany will probably be one of the greatest nights in West Ham history,” wrote The Telegraph after Frankfurt’s 2-1 win in the first leg. “Actually, it’s mandatory.

West Ham created a lot of chances in the first leg. Kevin Trapp made a superb save to block Jarrod Bowen’s attempt at the post in the first half and was lucky enough to see a bike prodigy from the same player smash the bar late in the game. Set-pieces and passes from Declan Rice in midfield caused problems for the Germans, who struggled to prevent Michael Antonio from circulating the ball. The Hammers don’t lack confidence and they have admitted that while they weren’t at their best, they would be in Germany. “We’re here to win it,” Antonio insisted.

And what about the final?

The Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in Seville will host the final on Wednesday, May 18th.

The winners will receive a place in the group stage of the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League, if they do not qualify through their domestic competitions.
