It's the game in club history: SC Freiburg is in the DFB Cup final.

But there are problems when getting to the showdown against RB Leipzig.

Munich/Berlin – The Breisgau is upside down.

Figuratively speaking.

According to SWR, around 20,000 fans from southern Baden traveled to Berlin.

The euphoria is huge, a win against the "Red Bulls" would be the greatest success in the club's history.

Even those who traveled to the capital from the deepest south-west of the Federal Republic.

But: Hundreds of them were threatened with a serious delay.

Because: There were problems with Deutsche Bahn (DB).

As the

Nothing worked.

The reason: a defective pantograph.

The railway sent technicians to the route to fix the problem.

According to the report, it took them three hours.

The

Badische Zeitung

quoted Freiburg's building mayor, Martin Haag, as saying: "We're in Berlin for the finale."
