Berlin (AFP) – Bayer Leverkusen got its third Champions League ticket, after champions Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, runners-up.
In its fight for fourth place, RB Leipzig now has the best cards in the Bundesliga. In order to get past FC Freiburg, you need a point against FC Augsburg today. The other two internationals for next season are 1. FC Union Berlin and 1. FC Köln. In the relegation battle, Hertha BSC under coach Felix Magath must continue to shudder about staying in the class.
Contentment and the question mark
Barcelona coach Marco Rose has left no doubts about his future. “I will remain the Borussia Dortmund coach next year,” the football coach confirmed after the 3-1 win over SpVgg Greuther Fürth on Sky Pay TV, responding to ambiguous statements from head licensing player Sebastian Kehl. Before the match, when asked if Rose would remain coach of the BVB League next season, the future BVB sporting director replied: “I suppose so.”
Farewell to the Champions League
Rudi Voller has played a major role at Bayer Leverkusen since 2005, and will end after this season. As a Bayer official, he was denied the title, but the club is in a good position with his participation in the Champions League. The last step was taken with 4:2 at Hoffenheim. “I am also happy for Rudy because we can bid him farewell,” said coach Gerardo Sewan.
exhilaration and disappointment
The 1 FC Union Berlin players quickly put on their European Cup shirts and danced enthusiastically in front of the fans who traveled with them. In SC Freiburg, on the other hand, the disappointment was great. As in the previous year, Köpenick was represented internationally thanks to the Berlin 4:1 in Breisgau. Coach Urs Fischer was excited that his team had achieved “extraordinary things”. Freiburg has it too, but the big coronation portends his loss. Because today RB Leipzig could push the sports club out of its place in the Champions League.
Alien attack despite defeat
The fact that fans stormed the pitch drunk after the defeat probably only happened in Cologne. Due to Hoffenheim’s defeat, he was scheduled to skip FC 0:1 against VfL Wolfsburg. It is the second European Cup qualifier in the last 30 years. This was made possible by coach Stephen Baumgart, who found the script difficult: “I actually don’t feel like celebrating,” Baumgart said, “If we lose, it upsets me. That’s why it’s hard for me to cheer. But when I look at the table, I smile from Inside “.
Between landing and rescue
Hertha coach Felix Magath fears that his team, Hamburger S, will suffer in the relegation match. “That was my feeling from the start. The closer I get, the clearer this match becomes,” Magath said after the 2-1 draw against FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday. However, his anxiety could already be gone today. If VFB Stuttgart loses to Bayern Munich, the Berlin players will be saved. Until then, work will continue under Magath. “First of all, we are preparing for relegation. This is still in the hall. Instead of going out tomorrow, we will train. We will do everything we can to prepare against the third party in the second division.”
In the struggle for survival in the league, VfB Stuttgart could at least secure a place in the relegation with their victory today. However, the third of the last is just an outside player in the Bayern Munich match (5:30pm / DAZN). Team Bielefeld will keep their fingers crossed for the champions, because if VfB had won, Armenia would have been relegated on day 33 of the match. Augsburg club also hopes to win Munich. If Bayern Munich wins, even a defeat in Augsburg will not jeopardize the task of staying in the league. Otherwise, a point win with host RB Leipzig (7.30pm/DAZN) is enough.
