RB Leipzig star Benjamin Henrichs is determined to win the DFB Pokal after the 5-1 thrashing of Freiburg in the semi-finals. Leipzig put the semi-final to bed early on Tuesday night as they scored four unanswered goals in the first half. Henrichs, Dani Olmo, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Christopher Nkunku found the back of the Freiburg net before the half-time break. Michael Gregoritsch pulled one back for Freiburg, but it was only a consolation, and Szoboszlai completed his brace to cap off a 5-1 victory. "It's my third season here and for the third time, we've reached the final; it's becoming our competition," the right-back said in a post-match interview. "It's important to win the final now. That's our aim and given how we played today, that's our benchmark. "We haven't been clinical enough in recent weeks, both in creating and finishing chances. We did that well today, especially in the first half." Leipzig have reached the DFB Pokal final four times in the last five years, but last season was the only one which resulted in a trophy win for The Red Bulls, as they beat Freiburg on penalties. The other semi-final will see Stuttgart and Eintracht Frankfurt battle it out for the remaining spot in the final.
