Eintracht went from second division to Europa League victory in ten years | Soccer

Forty-two years after their first European title and a decade after slipping into the German second division, Eintracht Frankfurt won the Europa League on Wednesday by beating Glasgow Rangers in the final in Seville on penalties (5-4, after 1-1 in 120 minutes). It was the second European title in the history of the German team (it succeeds Villarreal, winner in 2021, in the history of the competition), after the triumph in the so-called UEFA Cup in 1980, a feat who has the tasty plus of giving direct entry into next season’s Champions League groups and as a top seed.
