SC Freiburg vs RB Leipzig Predictions

  • Freiburg have secured European football for the first time since 2013/14 via their league finish.
  • This is Freiburg’s first ever major cup final and their last cup clash with Bundesliga opponents required extra time.
  • Leipzig could only manage a 1-1 draw in the last three H2H encounters.
  • This is Leipzig’s second encounter with Bundesliga opponents in this tournament.

A new home for the DFB Pokal

No matter what happens in this cup final, the DFB Pokal will be heading to a new home as first time finalists Freiburg meet Leipzig, a side who have experienced a meteoric rise in German football but are yet to secure a major trophy.

Freiburg are the image of stability, they are led by the longest serving manager across Europe’s top divisions, Christian Streich, and he has masterminded a stunning league campaign which saw them qualify for a European group stage for the first time in eight years.

Leipzig already have Champions League football secured via their league position, but the ultimate goal is to pick up their first piece of major silverware. However, they could only manage two draws in the league meetings with Freiburg this term, both of which ended 1-1.

All roads lead to Berlin

Freiburg’s route to the final was arguably the tougher of the two sides, they faced three lower-tier opponents and two from the Bundesliga. One of those clashes against Bundesliga opponents required extra time but the common theme was the fact that both teams scored in four of their five games on the way to the final.

On the other hand, Leipzig didn’t concede a single goal across their first four DFB Pokal rounds, but had to come from behind to win in their first clash with fellow top-flight opponents in the semi-final (2-1 vs Union). As such, we think that Freiburg will put up much more of a fight than the likes of Hansa Rostock and Babelsberg.

We predict that both teams will score in this game, but we expect a cagey final as a win for either side will be huge in their respective history as the first piece of major silverware. As for the correct score, we are sticking with a 1-1 draw, what happens from there is anyone’s guess!
