The curtain comes down on a dramatic soccer season in Germany this weekend, as RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt collide in Berlin. The DFB Pokal has been a regular part of the season since 1935, and Leipzig will be looking for a famous second honor this weekend. Last season’s triumph was the first major piece of silverware that Leipzig have won in their history, as they overcame Freiburg on penalties.
Leipzig certainly comes into this showdown in better form, as they have won each of their last five matches across all competitions. In the semi-final, they dispatched of their rivals in last year’s final, as they hammered Freiburg 5-1 away from home.
Eintracht Frankfurt are among the most successful teams in the history of the competition, as they have won the DFB Pokal five times, and have reached the final on three further occasions. Their most recent success came back in 2018. The DFB Pokal is Frankfurt’s only route into the Europa League this term, with a victory being enough to secure the previous winners a spot.
However, they have been largely inconsistent over the final months of the season, evident from the fact that they have won just twice across their last five Bundesliga matches. But, they did end their season with a fine comeback win against Freiburg.
RB Leipzig vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
Fixtures between these sides have often been close affairs, evident from the fact that there have been four draws in the last six meetings. However, Leipzig appears difficult to oppose after their excellent form at the end of the season. They also landed a 2-1 win in the previous meeting between the sides.
