German League: Bayern Munich’s loss and the Champions League – Hertha and Stuttgart tremble – Sport

FSV Mainz 05 – FC Bayern 3:1 (2:1), Goals: 1-0 Burkhardt (18 minutes), 2-0 Niakate (27), 2-1 Lewandowski (33), 3-1. Barreiro (57.)

What is the most important indicator of the end of the season for Bayern Munich? The championship is constant, the club is knocked out in the Cup and the Champions League – so Sven Ulrich is back in goal. The goalkeeper could certainly appear in the starting line-up in Mainz as a thank you for his loyal service – but that wasn’t really fun.

In the first quarter of the hour, Mainz hit the net twice, and in the 18th minute was the long-deserved opening goal: Jonathan Burckhardt through Ulrich’s legs into the goal. Bayern (with Marcel Sabitzer and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting in the starting line-up) also made it easier for Mainz after that: two other Mainz players were ready to score when captain Moussa Niakhati made it 2-0. Bayern looked very drowsy, only Robert Lewandowski was a little lively: quick spin, good shot, goal. But that didn’t help because Mainz got very dizzy when Barrero made it 3-1. Fifth defeat in Munich this season.

Borussia Dortmund – VfL Bochum 3:4 (2:2), Goals: 0:1 Boulter (third), 0:2 Holtmann (8), 1:2 Haaland (18, VAR penalty), 2:2 Haaland (30, VAR penalty), 3: 2 Haaland (62). 3-3 Lucadia (81 minutes), 3-4 Pantović (85 minutes)

Revierderby with a difference, because without Schalke – under this banner, two teams met in the pot that almost finished this season. Before kick-off, Brazil and Bochum coach Marco Rose hugged Thomas Reis, and they no longer had many concerns about relegation to the Italian soccer league. Japan’s Takuma Asano then raced off the outside twice, bringing the ball twice into the middle, with Sebastian Poulter scoring first with a header and lastly Gerrit Holtmann with a left-footed shot.

And what about Dortmund? He had to get the phlegm out of his mind before Erling Haaland was allowed to do a hand-penalty drill: two VAR-tested kicks later the score was 2-2 – the Norwegian had a Bundesliga record. 60 goals After only 65 games, no one made it to the ’60s Club’ so quickly. Because Haaland was already there, he did one more thing: at 3:2 he showed how a central striker could dash so elegantly in a flat pass, he practically shot himself at the end. The fact that Dortmund did not win was due to the defensive interruption – first Manuel Akanji marveled at Jürgen Locadia of Bochum in the 16th minute until the Dutchman managed to shoot dry to make the score 3:3. Then there were again, you guessed it, the penalties. This time for VfL, Milos Pantovic made 4:3, and Bochum finally took the touchdown.

Both clubs, who met this time in Bielefeld for the so-called relegation striker, want to stay. But between Armenia and Hertha there was initially very little. Instead, we can see why both clubs have been there for so long. Even under caretaker coach Marco Kostmann, Bielefeld appeared without any idea of ​​football, while Berliners Felix Magath play football: everyone is running, albeit uncoordinated.

One of the few useful runs in this poor match brought Lucas Tousart in front of Bielefeld’s goal – after a corner kick, Frenchman Hertha scored 1-0 with a header. When Berlin’s relegation almost materialized, Tousart felt a whole lot of football: this time the Berliner came in too late, headed in by Joachim Nilsson and misled Felix Magath to stay in the league early.

VFP Stuttgart – Wolfsburg 1:1 (0:1), Goals: 0:1 Brooks (13), 1:1 Führich (89)

It was an early relegation final for VFB Stuttgart, and what better not happen in the finals? True, premature impotence. It was easy for Wolfsburg after 13 minutes: record setting, free header from Anthony Brooks, it was that easy. Then Stuttgart played as if they had been blocked, in fact until shortly before the final whistle – until Chris Vohresh used his first clear chance to equalize late. . First place for Stuttgart two games before the end: direct relegation is still theoretically possible (four points behind Hertha), in terms of relegation FB is now two points ahead of Bielefeld.

Augsburg – 1. FC Cologne 1: 4 (0: 2), Goals: 0:1 Thielmann (12), 0:2 Uth (15), 0:3 Modeste (63rd penalty), 1:3 Niederlechner (73), 1:4 Modeste (77)

Recently, three consecutive victories showed that Cologne is serious about its European Cup ambitions. In line with that, Union Berlin, as a direct contender, did not get past a 1-1 draw against Greuther Fürth on Friday night. After the shaky first ten minutes, everything went according to plan against FC Augsburg: at the end of the counterattack, Jan Thielmann gave his team the lead. Just three minutes later, Augsburg completely released Mark Oth after a long throw in the penalty area – 2:0.

After this quick double hit, both teams created scoring opportunities without using any of them. About an hour later, Anthony invited Modest to a dance in the FCA penalty area, which Jeffrey Guilio ended up with a foul. Cologne’s top scorer scored the penalty himself, and Florian Niederlechner reduced the difference to 1:3 before Modesti scored twice and scored the final score. Despite the defeat, Augsburg is six points clear of the relegation zone with two games remaining. Cologne passes union in the table.
