There is the next free kick for the Breisgauer...

25 minutes:

How does Leipzig react?

First of all, not at all, because Freiburg just keeps playing.

RB Leipzig with the first chance of the game: striker Nkunku initially unlucky

15. Minute: Die erste dicke Torchance der Partie! Forsberg setzt sich auf links durch und prüft Flekken, der gut reagiert aber den Ball nicht festhalten kann. Silva kann den Abpraller nicht nutzen, Nkunkus Schuss wird zum Eckball geklärt. Doch diese bringt nichts ein, der SCF kann durchatmen.

12. Minute: Freiburg hat immer mehr vom Spiel, weshalb sich hier eine sehr interessante Partie entwickelt. Nach einem Ballverlust im Mittelfeld übernehmen nun wieder die Leipziger die Kontrolle, Freiburg steht jedoch gewohnt stabil.

10. Minute: Klostermann holt den sehr auffälligen Sallai von den Beinen, Grifo will den fälligen Freistoß vor das Leipziger Tor bringen, doch seine Flanke bleibt hängen.

8. Minute: Leipzigs Verteidiger Simakan muss vor dem Freiburger Sallai zur ersten Ecke der Partie klären. Diese muss aufgrund eines Zweikampfs zwischen Henrichs und Schlotterbeck wiederholt werden, doch Orban klärt den zweiten Versuch.

5. Minute: Nach vier Minuten meldet sich auch der SC Freiburg mit einem ersten Nadelstich nach vorne, doch auch die Leipziger Hintermannschaft ist bei Grifos zentraler Hereingabe ebenfalls hellwach.

3. Minute: Die ersten Minuten gehören Leipzig, eine erste Flanke von Klostermann kann von der Freiburger Defensive aus dem Strafraum geklärt werden.

1. Minute: Und los geht‘s! Die Leipziger sind zunächst am Ball und lassen diesen erst einmal gut laufen.


Update, 19.55 Uhr: Die Spieler betreten das Feld, in wenigen Minuten geht es los!

Update, 19.51 Uhr: Noch zehn Minuten bis Schiedsrichter Sascha Stegemann das Finale freigibt. Seit dem Finale 1993 zwischen Bayer Leverkusen und den Amateuren von Hertha BSC ist es das erste Mal, dass zwei Vereine das Endspiel bestreiten und dabei erstmals den Pott gewinnen können.

Update, 19.40 Uhr: Wie geht Domenico Tedesco heute mit seiner Finalprämiere um? „Ich versuche, es aufzusaugen. So ein Pokalfinale zu spielen, ist nicht alltäglich“, meinte Leipzigs Trainer vom Endspiel und warnt besonders vor der Standardstärke des Gegners. Auch der 36-Jährige scheint tiefenentspannt.

Update, 19.31 Uhr: Den SC Freiburg trennt eine knappe halbe Stunde vom ersten DFB-Pokalfinale , für RB Leipzig ist es bereits das dritte Mal in Berlin. Bisher unterlagen die Sachsen jedoch zweimal, im Jahr 2019 unterlag man mit 0:3 gegen den FC Bayern, 2021 verlor RB mit 1:4 gegen den BVB.

SC-Freiburg-Coach Streich zeigt sich vor dem DFB-Pokalfinale entspannt

Update, 19.20 Uhr: Wie bereitete sich der SC Freiburg auf den heutigen Abend vor? „Wir haben uns wie auf ein Bundesliga-Spiel vorbereitet, der Unterschied war nur, dass wir einen Tag früher gefahren sind“, meint Freiburg-Trainer Christian Streich etwa vierzig Minuten vor dem Finale bei der ARD. Der Coach wirkt entspannt und freut sich sichtlich auf sein bisher größtes Spiel mit dem SCF.

Update, 19.11 Uhr: Die Aufstellungen beider Teams sind nun da. Beide Mannschaften gehen mit einer ähnlichen taktischen Ausrichtung ins Spiel, wobei die Leipziger wohl mit einer Dreierkette und die Freiburger mit einer defensiveren Fünferkette spielen werden.

Update, 18.48 Uhr: Während der SC Freiburg eine konstant gute Saison spielte, holte RB Leipzig vor allem seit dem Trainerwechsel zum Ende der Hinrunde ordentlich auf. Bei beiden Duellen zwischen den Breisgauern und den Sachsen gab es in dieser Spielzeit keine Sieger, die beiden Partien endeten 1:1, am heutigen Abend muss es jedoch einen Gewinner geben.

SC Freiburg trifft auf RB Leipzig - Ex-Leipzig-Profi kritisiert SCF für Schal-Streit

Update vom 21. Mai, 18.24 Uhr: Vor dem Pokalfinale zofften sich Freiburg und Leipzig bereits um die Verwendung des SCF-Logos auf gemeinsamen Fanutensilien, hinzu kam der Ärger um das Abschlusstraining der Leipziger (siehe Erstmeldung). Zwar legten die Klubs den Schal-Streit bereits bei, der ehemalige Leipzig-Profi Marvin Compper kritisierte die Freiburger jedoch vor dem Endspiel für die Aktion. „Freiburgs Ablehnung irritiert mich. Diese herrscht leider nach wie vor bei dem einen oder anderen Klub“, meinte der Ex-Nationalspieler gegenüber Sport1.

„Es ist ein Protest gegen das Zustandekommen eines Klubs wie RB“, so der Co-Trainer des russischen Erstligisten Lokomotive Moskau. Durch die Aktion werde „neuer Hass geschürt“, so Compper. „Das ist nicht die feine Art und es war nicht Freiburg-like. (...) Das ist ein Verein, der für gewisse Werte und Toleranz einstehen will, aber ich sehe jetzt keine Toleranz.“ Das Thema RB Leipzig löst unter deutschen Fußballfans nach wie vor viel Verärgerung aus, 2009 übernahm der Ableger des Red-Bull-Imperiums den Oberliga-Startplatz des SSV Markranstädt und spielt nach vier Aufstiegen seit der Saison 2016/17 in der Bundesliga.

DFB-Pokal-Finale zwischen dem SC Freiburg und RB Leipzig - wer holt sich den ersten Titel?

Erstmeldung vom 21. Mai:
Freiburg - Eine kuriose Pokalsaison neigt sich dem großen Endspiel zu. Dank des großen Favoritensterbens in den ersten Runden - der FC Bayern flog in der zweiten Runde raus, der BVB im Achtelfinale - setzten sich letztlich der Bundesliga-Vierte aus Leipzig sowie der Überraschungs-Sechste aus Freiburg durch. Im Berliner Olympiastadion geht es ab 20 Uhr (live im TV und im Stream) um den jeweils ersten großen Titel der Vereinsgeschichte.

SC Freiburg und RB Leipzig zoffen sich vor dem DFB-Pokal-Finale: Nächster Krach nach Schal-Eklat

Bereits Wochen vor dem DFB-Pokal-Endspiel gab es erste Auseinandersetzungen zwischen den beiden Finalisten. Grund dafür war ein Verbot der Nutzung des SC-Freiburg-Logos für gemeinsame Fanartikel zum Finale. „Wir machen die Partnerschals relativ selten. Nur wenn es eine Verbindung zwischen den Klubs oder Fans gibt“, begründete der verantwortliche Finanzvorstand der Breisgauer Oliver Leki die Entscheidung. Bei RB Leipzig kam dies nicht gut an, Geschäftsführer Oliver Mintzlaff bezeichnete das Logo-Verbot gar als respektlos.

Neben der Diskussion um die sogenannten Begegnungsschals sorgte ein weiterer Zwischenfall für Spannungen zwischen den Endspielgegnern. Der Auslöser dafür war das Abschlusstraining am Freitagabend, das normalerweise am Spielort abgehalten wird, idealerweise sind 15 Minuten der Einheit für Medienvertreter zugänglich. RB Leipzig trainierte zur Verwunderung vieler jedoch nicht richtig. So kamen die Spieler in Turnschuhen und mit wenigen Bällen auf den Platz und fuhr nach fünf Minuten auf dem Platz und einem kleinen Spaziergang wieder ab. Schuld am ungewöhnlich kurzen Abschlusstraining waren Bild zufolge die Freiburger.

RB Leipzig hielt wegen Freiburg kein reguläres Abschlusstraining ab - stattdessen kuriose Alibi-Einheit

Accordingly, the SCF, as the nominal "home team", was allowed to decide on the time of their own final training session in the Berlin stadium at the throwing ground next to the Olympic Stadium, so Christian Streich gave the last opportunity to prepare at 5 p.m.

Only after the Freiburgers - around 6.15 p.m. - would it have been the turn of the Leipzigers with their unit.

That was apparently too late for coach Domenico Tedesco and Co., which is why RB trained before leaving at 10 a.m.

However, with the DFB insisting that the finalists train at the venue of the final, Leipzig completed its brief alibi session.
