All eyes are on Sunday as far as Eintracht Women are concerned, when they will face off against VfL Wolfsburg in the DFB Cup final (kick-off 16:00 CEST). The She-Wolves have taken home the silverware six times in a row between 2015 and 2020, while prior to last summer’s merger, 1. FFC Frankfurt had won the DFB Cup nine times, the most recent being in 2014.
We believe in ourselves wholeheartedly and we’ll do everything we can to bring the cup back to Frankfurt.Head coach Niko Arnautis
“We want to be up for it right from the off”
Last Sunday’s fixture in the FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga served as a dress rehearsal for this weekend, with SGE slipping to a narrow 3-2 defeat at the Deutsche Bank Park. “We want to be up for it right from the off this Sunday,” said Eintracht coach Niko Arnautis. “We believe in ourselves wholeheartedly and we’ll do everything we can to bring the cup back to Frankfurt.”
Unbeaten in the cup against Wolfsburg
The two teams have met just twice to date in the DFB Cup, both times in the Round of 16, with 1. FFC Frankfurt winning on each occasion.
This season, SGE defeated Karlsruher SC in the second round (8-0), Leipzig in the last 16 (4-0), SG 99 Andernach in the quarter-finals (7-1) and SC Freiburg in the semi-finals (2-1) en route to their 14th cup final.
Géraldine Reuteler and Lea Schneider will be forced to miss out on the final, as both players are suffering from cruciate ligament injuries.
Kick-off: Sunday 30 May 2021 16:00 CEST.
Stadium: RheinEnergieSTADION, Cologne.
