RB Leipzig, Eintracht Frankfurt 90 Minutes Away From DFB-Pokal Title

RB Leipzig, Eintracht Frankfurt 90 Minutes Away From DFB-Pokal Title

Perhaps a season of slight disappointment for the pair, RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt will do battle one last time in the hopes of ending their respective campaigns with some silverware.

Rb Leipzig have enjoyed great success in the DFB-Pokal in recent seasons, having reached the final for the fourth time in the last five years, with the latest being against Eintracht Frankfurt.

On the other hand, Die Adler have won the trophy five times in their history and will be hoping for another crowning moment today.

Marco Rose’s side should head into today’s final with plenty of confidence after winning seven of their final eight Bundesliga games to ensure that they will compete in the Champions League for the fifth successive campaign, with Nkunku potentially set to play for his final game for the club after bagging a brace against relegated Schalke 04 last time out.

However, Oliver Glasner and his players will certainly attempt to put a stop to the DFB-Pokal holders retaining their title, as Frankfurt look to win their second major trophy in two seasons after sensationally lifting the Europa League in Glasner’s first season in charge.

After qualifying for the Champions League for the first time in the club’s history by beating Rangers on penalties last May, Die Adler ensured that they will compete in Europe once again by snatching seventh spot away from Wolfsburg’s grasp via Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe’s injury-time winner against Freiburg on the final day.

Whether they will represent Germany in the Europa League or Europa Conference League next season comes down to their result in Saturday’s cup final: victory against Leipzig would take them into the Europa League once again, but defeat would see them only make it to the Europa Conference League.
