What an incredible end to the season it has been for Rangers. After defeating RB Leipzig in emphatic fashion at Ibrox last week, they prepare to to travel to Seville to take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League final.

Goals from roving right-back James Tavernier got them going, before Glen Kamara doubled their lead in the first-half. Rangers defence did a solid job against one of Europe's top scorers in Christopher Nkunku through both legs, but the explosive Frenchman brought them back into the game with 20 minutes to go. But just 10 minutes later, John Lundstram found the back of the net to send Rangers to the Europa League final.

The Ibrox team is set to face ace Eintracht Frankfurt in Seville on May 18, with thousands of fans set to descend on the Spanish city. The showpiece final will be played at Sevilla's home ground, the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, which the Gers played at back in December of 2009 in a 1-0 defeat in the Champions League.

With a capacity of just 43,000, it's smaller than Ibrox and La Cartuja, the other football stadium in Seville (along with Real Betis' Benito Villamarín), which played host to the 2003 UEFA Cup final between Celtic and Porto. With tens of thousands further expected to travel to the Spanish city.

Should Rangers win, it would be one of the club's greatest achievements in decades – after falling into the third tier of Scottish football less than 10 years ago after going into liquidation.

Should they win, they'll take him £7.98 million in prize money, whilst the runner-up will get £4.27 million. Last year's winners, Villarreal received the same prize money after defeating Manchester United on penalties.

With thousands of Glaswegians expected to travel without tickets to the game, reports have surfaced that the aforementioned La Cartuja stadium could swing open its doors to accommodate some of the thousands of fans heading to the city for the final – with big screens in place to watch the match.

One thing that looks for sure is that a fan zone will be set up for both Gers fans and Eintracht Frankfurt fans in the majestic Plaza de España, the most famous square in Seville, located around a 30 minute walk away from the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán.
