Football – Round 32 of the German League Telegram – Sport

Düsseldorf (dpa) – The thirty-second match in the Bundesliga begins with Friday’s match between Union Berlin and Greuther Fürth. Saturday matches:

Borussia Dortmund – VfL Bochum (Saturday, 3.30 pm)

Situation: The BVB had to congratulate Bayern Munich on winning the title again after the head-to-head duel, but they are confident of the Champions League. Bochum can be saved even if they lose on Saturday if Stuttgart does not beat Wolfsburg.

The stats: Bochum hasn’t won any of the last seven duels. The last win was in 2007, and the last one in Dortmund was in 1998.

Staff: In addition to the injured Hummels, David, Coppel, Meunier, Reyna and Hazard, PVB also misses the arrested Kahn. Witsel’s return is open. And Bochum will be missing two left-backs, Stavelides and Danilo Soares.

Exclusive: Rose Dortmund plays their 100th match as a coach in the German Bundesliga. Compete against 22 different clubs for 21 wins. Not only against Bochum. But there was only one match, 1:1 in the first leg.

Arminia Bielefeld – Hertha BSC (Saturday, 3.30 pm)

Situation: With a win, Hertha can no longer be directly relegated. If Wolfsburg also wins in Stuttgart, the Berliners will certainly be saved. Bielefeld, who is 17th, can’t go down yet, but the win is very important.

The stat: Armenia has not lost at home to Hertha in six matches and nearly 20 years. Recently, the Berlin team won in September 2002 with coach Hope Stevens through a goal by Marcelinho on Pain.

Staff: Kloss and Brunner are still missing from East Westphalia after head injuries, and Kunzi is back. It also came out to my name and Lorsen. Richter will likely replace Dareda’s outstanding at Hertha. Coach Magath is considering a double drive with Selke and Belfodil.

SPECIAL: Magath celebrated his first title as a player at Bielefeld – in 1979 after a difficult 0-0 draw with Hamburg SV.

VfB Stuttgart – VfL Wolfsburg (Saturday, 3.30 pm)

Position: Stuttgart is under pressure in the relegation battle. If Hertha wins in Bielefeld and VfB does not score themselves, they will have no chance of a direct save. With a nine-point lead from 16th, Wolfsburg fared well.

The stats: Only against Borussia Mönchengladbach has won more Bundesliga matches in the FL (22) than against Stuttgart (20). VfB has lost four of its last seven home league matches against Wolfsburg.

Staff: Midfielder Carazor is available again for Swabians, but Marmoush, on loan from Wolfsburg, remains a question mark. The Lacroix defender returns to the guests.

Special feature: VfB has not conceded a goal in any of its last 19 home matches in the Bundesliga – a negative record for the current club. The last time he kept a clean sheet on the field was in April 2021 against Werder Bremen (1-0), coached by current Wolfsburg coach Kohfeldt.

FSV Mainz 05 – Bayern Munich (Saturday, 3.30 pm)

Position: Bayern Munich are already champions. For Mainz, Europe and the threat of relegation are no longer mathematically feasible.

The stats: A little over a year ago, the Munich team lost 2-1 in Mainz and thus lost the early championship. Then they won the title a day later.

Character: Mainzer Tauer banned after being sent off at Wolfsburg, Bayern missing ailing Muller. Choupo-Moting and Sabitzer are allowed to play in the starting lineup.

Special: If Nagelsmann-Elf scored twice in Mainz, they would have set a Bundesliga record for away goals.

FC Augsburg – 1. FC Köln (Saturday, 3.30 pm)

Situation: FC Augsburg can take the last step to secure category membership with two games before the end of the season. Cologne can still win an international starting position.

The stats: FC Augsburg have lost only one of their last 14 Bundesliga matches against Cologne, winning seven of them.

Staff: Only Pedersen is missing in the FCA due to a yellow card suspension. Captain Hector could be there for Cologne after hitting his head with Bielefeld’s Alessandro Schopf.

Special feature: Emotions escalate regularly in this duel. In the 15 Bundesliga matches played by both clubs, there were six sending offs and eight penalties.

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim – SC Freiburg (Saturday, 6.30 pm)

The situation: Hoffenheim bet on every chance of the Champions League with the current calm. This can still be accessed by guests from Breisgau on their own.

The stats: TSG has not won six consecutive Bundesliga matches, and lost all three of its last home games to Freiburg.

Staff: Hoffenheim still has plenty of absentees to complain about, this time also absent from the suspended position. In Freiburg, the use of top scorer Petersen is questionable.

Special: only in January there was a duel in the cup, then the sports club won 4-1 away from home.
