DFB POKAL FINAL
2022 DFB POKAL WINNERS : RB LEIPZIG
We knew there was going to be a new name to be engraved on the cup because Freiburg and RB Leipzig were both chasing their first major/top-flight title in their history.
A numerically disadvantaged RB Leipzig team fought from a goal down to get a ‘1-1’ draw that eventually forced a penalty kickoff after extra time.
Maxi Eggestein scored in the 19th minute to give Freiburg a first-half lead that was taken into the halftime break.
Marcel Halstenberg was sent off on a red card in the 57th minute while RB Leipzig was chasing a goal to even the score.
Christopher Nukunku scored about 20 minutes later for RB Leipzig to get even.
Both teams had their chances to win (even in extra time).

All of RB Leipzig’s players converted their penalties into goals in the kickoffs (4).
Half of Freiburg’s players converted their penalties into goals in the kickoffs (2).
