  • 2-0 in the final: RB Leipzig are cup winners
  • Pyrotechnics again and again: Second half starts late
  • This news ticker for the DFB-Pokal final will be updated continuously

+++ 23.15 PM: Red Bull managing director Oliver Mintzlaff said after the game about the pyro incidents at the cup final: "Of course it's ugly. It was a difficult game for the spectators, it wasn't the best final. When something like that happens, it has no place in football." Both clubs will have to pay fines – Eintracht significantly more than Leipzig, as there was much more firecracking and ignition from the SBU block.

RB Leipzig win the cup

+++ 22.05 PM: RB Leipzig are DFB-Pokal winners! The defending champions beat Eintracht Frankfurt 70-84 after goals from Christopher Nkunku (2') and Dominik Szoboszlai (0').

+++ 21.06 PM: Before the start of the second half, both fan camps ignited pyrotechnics and firecrackers. Red and white fog in Berlin's Olympic Stadium – the DFB will be watching closely. For each ignited pyro torch, the clubs have to pay a fine of 1000 euros. Each firecracker shot down is sanctioned with 3000 euros.

Pyrotechnics again and again: Second half starts late

Referee Daniel Siebert was not worried by this and blew the whistle for the second period three minutes late.

+++ 20.51 PM: Setting off fireworks - this slogan is used again and again in football, meaning an energetic performance of the team on the pitch. The fans of Eintracht Frankfurt probably took it a little differently.

Before and during the cup final, pyrotechnics were ignited again and again, and the stadium management asked several times to refrain from burning them. ZDF commentator Oliver Schmidt even said: "The DFB is counting diligently."

The association regularly sanctions the pyro trouble with fines, so Eintracht is likely to have something to come. Before the game, a firecracker even landed on the field where the players were warming up.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs. RB Leipzig: Both fan festivals are underway

"As rumours have it and of course are completely unconfirmed, there are still some finals available at short notice at regular prices from 13 p.m. on Breitscheidplatz. In exchange for cash," wrote a spokesman for the board

Update from Saturday, 3 June, 13.55 p.m.: The fan festivals of both clubs are running and the atmosphere is magnificent. Especially on the Breitscheidplatz, where Eintracht Frankfurt celebrates, there is a lot going on. It is estimated that there are over 50,000 Adler fans in Berlin. Not everyone has a ticket, many will watch the final against Leipzig in one of the many pubs and bars.

First report: Berlin – The highlight of the DFB Cup season in Berlin is imminent. In the final of the competition, Eintracht Frankfurt and RB Leipzig will meet. The Saxons are considered slight favourites before kick-off, but the Hessians have shown impressively in the past that such games suit them. Only last year, the SBU was able to win the Europa League.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig: DFB-Pokal final in Berlin

RB Leipzig are now permanent guests in the cup final. Last year, the first victory in the club's history was achieved in the final in Berlin. Thanks to the success over SC Freiburg, the Saxons won the DFB-Pokal and are the defending champions this year.

In the stadium, however, Eintracht Frankfurt in particular can hope for loud support. It is estimated that over 40,000 Adler fans have tickets for the final, making the match at Berlin's Olympic Stadium a home game for Eintracht Frankfurt.

For the fans of both clubs, however, the day does not start with kick-off, but much earlier. Eintracht Frankfurt's fan festival starts at 12 noon on Breitscheidplatz - where it all began in the 2018 final, when the SBU won the title with a 3-1 win over FC Bayern Munich. All Eintracht fans can expect a varied programme on the final day with live acts, interviews, typical Eintracht music, fan articles and apples. Just typical Frankfurt in Berlin!

Between 13 p.m. and 17 p.m., the Red Bulls' annex gets in the mood for the final before heading to the Olympic Stadium.
