Leipzig are the clear favorites for the match, having finished third in the Bundesliga and reached the Round-of-16 of the Champions League. They have only lost one out of their last 10 matches and have also won the last six matches in a row.
Eintracht Frankfurt are the underdogs, but they will be hoping to cause an upset and win their first DFB Pokal trophy since 2018 and their sixth title overall. They have lost only once in their last six outings but will need to improve and be at their very best to beat an in-form Leipzig.
The match is sure to be a close contest, with both teams having plenty of attacking talent. The DFB Pokal final is always a special occasion, and this year's contest is sure to be no different.
