DFB Cup Final, SC Freiburg vs RB Leipzig
The Olympiastadion in Berlin will play host to the DFB-Pokal final on Saturday evening as Freiburg and RB Leipzig lock horns for a chance to clinch domestic silverware.
Freiburg will be competing in their first ever German Cup final in their 118-year history, while Leipzig are taking part in the showpiece event for the third time in the last four years.
A memorable 2021-22 campaign for Freiburg has seen Christian Streich's side qualify for the Europa League after securing sixth place in the Bundesliga, the club's highest top-flight finish for nine years. Die Breisgau-Brasilianer were in the hunt for Champions League football heading into their final two league games, but defeats against Union Berlin and Bayer Leverkusen, losing to the latter 2-1 away from home last weekend, quashed their top-four hopes. Nevertheless, Freiburg could end the season on a real high as they bid to win their first ever domestic cup on Saturday.
After a rocky start to their Bundesliga campaign under Jesse Marsch, RB Leipzig have since turned their fortunes around under current boss Domenico Tedesco, who has successfully guided the club to their fourth successive top-four finish, ending the campaign just one point clear of Union Berlin in fifth and three points clear of Freiburg in sixth. Die Roten Bullen were unable to set up an all-German Europa League final with eventual winners Eintracht Frankfurt, after losing to Rangers over two legs in the semi-finals, but they are still in with a chance of ending the campaign with silverware as they prepare for yet another DFB-Pokal final.
Leipzig head into Saturday's final after winning only two of their last six matches across all competitions, but considering that they have won three and drawn three of their last seven meetings against Freiburg, scoring on each occasion, they will be confident of success in Berlin.
The German capital is set to host an intriguing final between two sides who are desperate to get their hands on their first major piece of silverware. While goals are to be expected considering the quality that both teams possess in the final third, a closely-fought contest could be on the cards, one which could even go beyond the 90 minutes. Leipzig will head into the final as slight favourites, and after two previous attempts at glory which ended in disappointment, we can see them lifting the trophy at the third time of asking this weekend.
