Leipzig football players defended their triumph in the German Cup

Berlin – After a year, the Leipzig football players once again won the German Cup. They beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 in the Berlin final and won the trophy for the second time in history. French midfielder Christopher Nkunku and Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai scored goals in the second half.

The Saxon club has made it to the finals in each of the last three years and four times in the last five years. In 2019, he also lost to Bayern Munich and the year before to Borussia Dortmund, but last year he won for the first time after a penalty shootout with Freiburg.

Outgoing coach Oliver Glasner, who led the team to triumph in the Europa League last year, did not have a happy farewell on the bench of the five-time winner of the Frankfurt competition.

The victory of Leipzig, which secured a start in the Champions League with third place in the Bundesliga, means that Leverkusen, with Czech representatives Adam Hložek and Patrik Schick, will eventually slip from sixth place in the table to the Europa League. Frankfurt will take Bayer’s place in the European Conference League as the seventh top-flight team. In the event of a cup win, Eintracht would play in the Europa League.

German Football Cup Final in Berlin:

Leipzig – Frankfurt 2:0 (0:0)

Branky: 71. Nkunku, 85. Szoboszlai.
