Both RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt lifted a trophy at the end of the 2021-22 season. Saturday's DFB-Pokal final marks each club's final opportunity to secure silverware for a second straight season.
Leipzig won their first major honors by defeating SC Freiburg on penalties in last year's DFB-Pokal final, giving them the opportunity to become the first team other than Bayern Munich to win back-to-back German Cups since Schalke 04 in 2001 and 2002. Frankfurt, meanwhile, were celebrating a continental title this time last year, after beating Rangers in a penalty shootout of their own in the Europa League final.
Two hungry, upwardly mobile sides, desperate to snap up whatever silverware may be available in the Bayern-dominated German football landscape: Here's what you need to know in order to watch Saturday's DFB-Pokal final.
