The final game of the German domestic season takes place on Saturday, as RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt collide in the final of the DFB Pokal. Leipzig will be the heavy favourites after an excellent end to the season, but Frankfurt have shown their quality at stages throughout the campaign.
DFB Pokal Final Preview
Just two sides remain in contention for the DFB Pokal this term, as RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt collide at the Olympiadstadion in Berlin. Leipzig comes into the final as the defending champions, as they won their first major piece of silverware at the end of last season with a penalty shootout success against Freiburg.
That ended a run of two defeats in the final in three seasons, and they will be the firm favourites to successfully defend the title this term. Leipzig ended the season in excellent form, as they finished in a Champions League spot after winning each of their last four Bundesliga fixtures. That included eye-catching wins over Bayern Munich and Freiburg. They also booked their spot in the final with a 5-1 win on the road against Freiburg, which was a repeat of the final from last season.
Eintracht Frankfurt have also shown their quality in this competition in recent seasons, as they won the DFB Pokal in 2018, and also reached the final in 2017. Frankfurt has won the DFB Pokal on five occasions, and they have also been losing finalists on three occasions.
However, their recent form would be a concern coming into this showdown on Saturday. Frankfurt ended the season in seventh, after winning just two of their last six matches. Therefore, a victory in the cup final this weekend is also their only route back into European competition next term.
RB Leipzig vs Eintracht Frankfurt Head to Head
The recent meetings between these sides make it difficult to separate them. Both sides have landed just one victory apiece in the previous six encounters, with four matches over that period ending in draws. Leipzig landed a 2-1 win in the previous clash between the sides, while the only meeting between the sides in this competition saw Frankfurt register a 3-1 win in 2020.
RB Leipzig vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
This should be an interesting clash between the sides in the final of the DFB Pokal this weekend. However, we have been very impressed with Leipzig over recent weeks, as they have ended the campaign in excellent form. Therefore, we will be siding with Leipzig successfully retaining their title on Saturday.
