Oliver Mintzlaff is expecting an intense DFB Cup final between SC Freiburg and his RB Leipzig tonight at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium. The CEO has a great deal of respect for the competitor.

Direct competitor: RB Leipzig’s boss Oliver Mintzlaff said in an interview on the club’s website that they were playing against a team that was in a direct duel for the Champions League with turfball until the last minute of the Bundesliga season.

Appreciation: Mintzlaff: “We have great appreciation for what coach Christian Streich and the entire club have achieved over the years. Freiburg is not in the final and didn’t play such a strong Bundesliga season because the other teams were so bad, but because SC itself was so good.

Correction after crises: Mintzlaff sees the fact that RB is in the final on Saturday (8 p.m.) as a reward after a season with a six-month crisis. “It is part of sport that there are ups and downs. The only thing that matters is how you deal with such situations. Keeping a cool head, looking for constructive solutions and trying to correct things,” emphasized Mintzlaff.
