Freiburg vs RB Leipzig match preview

A repeat of last season’s DFB-Pokal Final, only this time just one of these two sides will be heading to Berlin for the showpiece occasion.

12 months ago, the pair played out a 1-1 draw at Olympiastadion, before RB Leipzig prevailed 4-2 in a penalty shootout, thereby claiming the first major silverware of their admittedly short history.

Will it be repeat of revenge in this semi-final.

This is the first of two meetings between these clubs this week, with these fixtures likely to be season-defining.

That’s because, in the Bundesliga table, Freiburg are currently fourth, two points clear of RB Leipzig.

Christian Streich’s side beat Köln on Saturday, Ritsu Dōan the match-winner at RheinEnergieStadion, so have won three on the spin and are on the cusp of Champions League qualification for the very first time.

In this competition, Breisgau-Brasilianer have so far dumped out Kaiserslautern, St. Pauli and Sandhausen before a last-gasp victory over Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.

Lucas Höler bundling home a 93rd minute winner at Allianz Arena last month.

Now, having reached the club’s first-ever DFB-Pokal Final just last season, will Freiburg get there again?

RB Leipzig meanwhile are seeking to become the first club not named Bayern Munich to retain the Pokal since Schalke 21 years ago.

Marco Rose’s side have scored 17 goals en route to this last four clash, ousting Teutonia Ottensen, Hamburg, Hoffenheim and then Borussia Dortmund.

Die Roten Bullen also beat Hoffenheim 1-0 at the weekend, Christopher Nkunku the scorer, so are just two points below Union Berlin and Freiburg in the Champions League chase.

Who will reach this season’s final, where Stuttgart or Eintracht Frankfurt await?
