Freiburg qualified for the first German Cup final in the club’s history with a 3-1 victory at second-tier Hamburg in Tuesday’s semi-final, with all their goals coming in the first half.
Bundesliga side Freiburg dominated Hamburg, who have spent the last four seasons in the second division, with Nils Petersen, Nicolas Hoefler and Vincenzo Grifo scoring in the opening 35 minutes.
Hamburg managed a consolation goal with two minutes left when Robert Glatzel headed in a cross.
There will be a new German Cup winner when the final is held at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium on May 21 as neither Freiburg, nor Union Berlin and RB Leipzig, who meet in Wednesday’s other semi-final, have previously lifted the trophy.
