Eintracht goalkeeper legend Egon Loy, who stood between the posts for Frankfurt in the Europa Cup final against Real Madrid in 1960, believes that Hesse will win the final against Rangers. “I bet 3: 1 for Frankfurt,” the 90-year-old explained in an interview with Kicker. He also revealed the secret recipe: “You just can not interfere in the duels. Then it’s over.” Loy eliminated Rangers with Eintracht in the semi-finals in 1960 and speaks from experience: “Against British teams you have to try to let the ball run.”
