These days, Lokomotive find themselves in Regionalliga Northeast, Germany’s fourth-tier, having not won a DFB-Pokal tie since 1997.

Eintracht Frankfurt meantime have enjoyed plenty of cup success in recent times, beating Bayern Munich in the Pokal final of 2018, before also winning the Europa League four years later.
