How to watch DFB-Pokal final: SC Freiburg vs. RB Leipzig time, TV channel, FREE live stream

SC Freiburg faces RB Leipzig in the final of the 2022 DFB-Pokal cup at Olympiastadion Berlin on Saturday, May 21 (5/21/2022).

For fans in the US, coverage begins at 1:45 pm ET on ESPNEWS. It can be streamed live on fuboTV, ESPN+ and other live streaming services.

While the DFB-Pokal title — the second most important German Club title after the Bundesliga — guarantees a spot in the DFL Super Cup and the Europa League Group Stage, both these teams have already achieved a birth in either the 2022 Europa or Champions Leagues .

Freiburg, who have already qualified for the 2022-23 Europa League, would still like a shot at facing Bayern Munich in the Super Cup. They are coming off a commanding 3-1 win over Hamburger SV in the semifinals to advance to the club’s first ever DFB-Pokal final.

For RB Leipzig, it’s their second consecutive appearance in a DFB-Pokal final, and third in four years. Last time out, Borussia Dortmund hammered Leipzig 4-1. They beat Union Berlin 2-1 in the semifinal off a late header from Emil Forsberg to avoid going to extra time.

Here’s how to tune in.
