It was anything but pretty to look at, but Yussuf Poulsen and the rest of the players from RB Leipzig probably don’t care.
With a 2-0 victory over Jesper Lindstrøm and Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday evening, they ensured that the club became cup champions in Germany for the second year in a row.
The trophy came home after a nervous and locked affair, where neither team dared to let go of the reins and bet everything forward.
A somewhat fortunate goal from Christopher Nkunku locked the game back up with 20 minutes left, but Frankfurt were nowhere near getting into the game.
Instead, Dominik Szoboszlai increased the score to 2-0, and then the cheers at one end of the Olympiastadion in Berlin erupted into wildfire.
Yussuf Poulsen came on for Leipzig after a good hour, while Jesper Lindstrøm came on about ten minutes later.
From each of their benches, they could see an introduction to the final that was heavily marked by the fact that the two teams were very careful.
Timo Werner got a big chance already in the fourth minute, but because neither team really dared to let go of the handbrake, big chances were in short supply.
It was most dangerous when Randal Kolo Muani came to an end in the box after just over a quarter of an hour, but the coveted Frankfurt striker hit the side netting.
Christopher Nkunku tried from distance at the other end shortly before the half-time whistle, but it wasn’t really dangerous.
However, it was after 71 minutes. Jesper Lindstrøm had just come onto the pitch, but the former Brøndby player got a bucket of cold water on his head.
Christopher Nkunku dribbled around the Frankfurt area a bit and then tapped off. On the way to the goal, the ball was deflected and beat Kevin Trapp in the goal.
Yussuf Poulsen had also come on at that time, and he took part in several fine plays in the minutes around the goal.
In fact, Frankfurt seemed a bit paralyzed by the goal. Leipzig took control of the game, and Frankfurt could not escape the iron grip.
With five minutes left in regular time, Leipzig struck again.
Dominik Szoboszlai was played completely free on the right side of the field and unfailingly scored the game’s decisive goal.
