Hosts Haven’t Had Much Joy Against Visitors

Christopher Nkunku will hope to help holders RB Leipzig defend their DFB Cup crown when they take on Randal Kolo Muani and Eintracht Frankfurt in the final on Saturday. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and bonuses for the German Cup.

RB Leipzig Finished Season in Style

This will be Leipzig’s fourth appearance in the final in the last five seasons. The still-infant Saxons are making a habit of reaching the competition’s showpiece. Their first and only triumph came last season as Domenico Tedesco’s men beat SC Freiburg on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

Marco Rose is now at the helm and he has overseen wins over Hamburg, Hoffenheim, Borussia Dortmund, and Freiburg to reach this stage. Leipzig won seven of their last eight Bundesliga matches to finish just five points behind champions Bayern Munich, and we will continue to include them in our DFB Pokal picks and parlays.

While Nkunku leads RB Leipzig with 22 goals, striker Timo Werner has stood out in the DFB-Pokal. He has scored five goals in just four starts and could play a big part here, along with Nkunku. This is expected to be Nkunku’s last match with RB Leipzig, as he’s set to join Chelsea in the summer. He got on the scoresheet three times in his final two Bundesliga matches. The majority of Leipzig’s squad is available for the trip to Berlin’s Olympiastadion, with first-choice goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi the only definite absentee.

Frankfurt: Attacking Firepower

The Eagles boast a prolific attacking line led by the one and only Kolo Muani, who had more direct goal involvements than any other player in the Bundesliga in the 2022-23 campaign. He netted 15 and provided 11 assists, including one of each in the 2-1 success over Freiburg, securing a seventh-place finish and guaranteed European football next term for a third straight year. Let’s not forget that Eintracht Frankfurt won last year’s UEFA Europa League and made it to the Champions League round of 16 this season.

The team has decided to part ways with coach Oliver Glasner, only a year after he led the team to the Europa League title. Glasner has one more year left on his contract, but the club said the team’s sporting development and overall performance in the second half of the campaign prompted club officials to reevaluate the situation.

Only three teams scored more goals than Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga this season. Sure, conceding at least two goals per game is a concern, but the beauty of the German Cup is that anything can happen in the final match, and if you’re betting online, you should expect a high-scoring game.

Captain Sebastian Rode is expected back in the starting line-up after sitting out last weekend’s action, while Jesper Lindstrom and Daichi Kamada are vying for the spot in attacking midfield next to Mario Gotze.

Leipzig vs Frankfurt Head-to-Head

Leipzig is contesting their third final in four years and is bidding to become the seventh team to win back-to-back DFB Cups. Frankfurt is one of them, having done so in 1974-75 & 1975-76. Since losing the 2020-21 final, the hosts have decided 10 of their subsequent 11 straight cup wins inside 90 minutes.

They won last season’s showpiece on penalties. Eintracht’s Kolo Muani has a tournament-leading six goals in this season’s competition, one more than Leipzig counterpart Timo Werner. Frankfurt won their only previous cup meeting with Leipzig 3-1 in the 2019-20 round of 16.

This season the two teams shared the spoils in the domestic league, with both winning their home matches. We’ve seen at least three goals in the last three encounters across all competitions.
