How did both teams reach the final?

The semi final second leg at Ibrox is one which will live long in the memory of Rangers fans everywhere, as their side ran out 3-1 winners to seal their place in the final.

Eintracht Frankfurt had an equally impressive route to Seville, with the German side defeating Spanish giants Barcelona in the quarter final before edging out West Ham United in the semi-finals.

If the score is still equal after extra time, the winners are determined by kicks from the penalty mark.

Are there tickets left for the final?

Rangers fans have snapped up 18,000 tickets for the final, and this will be the only allocation the club will be given.

People without tickets have been urged not to travel to Seville by UEFA.

A UEFA spokesperson said: “Whilst UEFA understands that there will be fans who have been unsuccessful in their application for tickets, fans are strongly advised not to travel to the finals without tickets or purchase tickets on the secondary market.

“In order to maintain the safety and security of fans, ticket holders should be aware that checks will be carried out at the finals and the local authorities in the cities will take action against the unauthorised resale of tickets.”
