The Bundesliga’s best

Christopher Nkunku was crowned Bundesliga player of the season this week, scoring 20 goals and creating 13 in 34 league appearances this season. His form carried over into the knockout competitions too as the Frenchman managed 11 goals across the Champions League and Europa League, plus three in the Pokal during Leipzig’s run to the final.

A head-to-head with Nico Schlotterbeck may well decide this final.

The German international has arguably been the league’s finest defender all season and will be playing his last game for SC Freiburg, having already agreed to join Borussia Dortmund this summer.


History in the making

Having qualified for Europe already – Freiburg will be in next season’s Europa League, RB Leipzig in the Champions League — this one really is all about the silverware. And a piece of silverware neither side has ever won.

Freiburg’s incredible season and general success story goes on as Saturday’s game will be their first ever in the DFB Pokal final, 118 years after their foundation.

RB Leipzig have reached the final in two of the last three seasons, losing to Bayern Munich (2019) and Borussia Dortmund (2021) in those visits to Berlin. One way or another, there will be a new name on the trophy come Saturday evening.


Tasty rivalry

Freiburg came out on top and lifted the 2. Bundesliga title when these two were both promoted to the top flight back in 2016.

A rivalry has continued since then, with the Breisgauer the poster-boys of sustainability in German football and Leipzig very much the non-traditionalists.

It runs so deep that Freiburg have not allowed their badge to be used on official half-and-half merchandise in Berlin. For this sides it’s even more than a trophy, it’s about how clubs are run, how involved fans are in that process, and what all that means for the future of the German game.
