“Borussia Dortmund ended a really successful season with a disgraceful 0:4 (0:2) against Hoffenheim. For TSG, Andrej Kramaric scored all the goals (8th; 30.; 48.; 50th minute) – by long-range shot, duster or penalty. Hoffenheim improved to sixth place, guaranteeing a Europa League starting place.
Dortmund had already planned the future before the game: Lucien Favre will remain head coach until 2021; Sports director Michael Zorc extended until 2022. Storm jewel Moussafa Moukoko, 15, is promoted to the professional squad, is to be used at 16.
Freiburg 4-0 Schalke
In the end, it is 16 games that FC Schalke 04 could not win in a row. At the end of the season there was a 0:4 (0:2) in Freiburg. While the team was embarrassed again, around 1000 fans of the Schalkers in Gelsenkirchen showed themselves very eager to work.
They came to the arena for a demonstration on Saturday afternoon. The motto: “Schalke is not a slaughterhouse – against the dismantling of our club”. The appendix formed a human chain in order to draw attention to grievances and wrong developments in the club and in the meat company of the chairman of the supervisory board, Clemens Tönnies. Tönnies has come under intense pressure after massive coronavirus infections occurred among employees of his company in Rheda-Wiedenbrück.
In Freiburg, it was Wallschmidt who made it 1-0 in the 19th minute. In the 38th, Schmid took advantage of the desolate defensive behaviour after a free kick to make it 2-0. After the break, Höler (46th) and Again Wallschmdit (57th) met.
Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 Mainz
Bayer Leverkusen have missed out on another last-minute entry into the Champions League despite their own duty and are now travelling to the cup final against Bayern Munich with a fair bit of frustration. Although Werkself won 1-0 (1-0) against the already saved FSV Mainz 05, this was not enough because of the simultaneous 2-1 victory of Borussia Mönchengladbach against Hertha BSC. Curious: After winning through the early goal of Kevin Volland (2nd), the Leverkusen players have scored five more points this season than in the successfully completed last season.
Gladbach – Hertha 2:1
One point would have been enough for Borussia to reach the Champions League for the third time in the club’s history. Mönchengladbach, however, ended a successful season much more stylishly and defeated Hertha BSC deservedly 2-0 (1:0). The result should have been much higher.
The unambitious Berliners did so little resistance that every player should consider donating his run-up bonus to a good cause – except perhaps for the young goalkeeper Smarsch (21) who was released for his first Bundeslig-Startatz. The fact that only Hoffmann hit the net at 13-0 until the break (7th) was almost absurd, but not too bad, as the Hertha players continued to make little attempt to justify their presence.
Embolo scored to make it 2-0 (78th), Vedad Ibisevic’s follow-up goal late in the second period. The victory reassures Gladbach financially. The decline due to the Corona pandemic is expected to be around 13 million euros. This would be compensated for with the entry premium of the royal class of 15.25 million euros alone.
Wolfsburg – Bayern Munich 0:4
Hans-Dieter “Hansi” Flick had given a clear goal for the last game of his FC Bayern in this historic season of the Bundesliga. The coach desperately wanted to stay without defeat in the 17th game of the return round. And although the Munich side have been champions for almost two weeks, they did not let up at VfL Wolfsburg, winning deservedly 4-0 (2-0). And thus reached the magic hundred-goal mark.
After just three minutes of play, Kingsley Coman shot Bayern into the lead, the pass coming once again from Thomas Müller. It was the 21st submission of the world champions this season, setting a record. So far, Kevin De Bruyne has held the record with 20 assists. The 2-0 was scored by Michael Cuisance (37th), which Flick brought from the start like Alvaro Odriozola. Robert Lewandowski scored on a foul penalty (72nd) to make it 3-0, his 34th goal of the season. Müller scored the 4-0 (79th).
After the game, the Champions Cup was presented to The Bavarians. It is her 30th consecutive championship. The hygiene concept of the German Football League (DFL) had to be at the last moment of the season. That’s why there were no beer showers. After all: Beer and champagne were ready for the Bayern players after the whistle in the cabin. The club bosses and team had already met a week ago for the “Master-Essen”.
Augsburg – Leipzig 1:2
Leipzig’s storm star Timo Werner celebrated a custom-made farewell. Before his €53 million transfer to Chelsea, the 24-year-old international drove the Saxons to a furious 2-1 (1-0) win at FC Augsburg.
With his two goals (28th and 80th minute) Werner scores 28 goals of the season. Ruben Vargas (71st) scored for the FCA. The team of coach Julian Nagelsmann claims with the success third place. Curious note: Referee Felix Brych sent Augsburg’s Philipp Max off the pitch with red (57th), after video control he was allowed to continue playing.
Frankfurt – Paderborn 3:2
With a defeat, SC Paderborn has left the First League after only one year. The table-18. lost 2:3 (0:2) at Eintracht Frankfurt, it was the 22nd failure of the season.
The Hessen, where Marco Russ and Gelson Fernandes ended their careers on Saturday, took the lead through Rode. He scored in the ninth minute. In the 33rd, Silva marked the 2-0 with his 12th goal of the season. After the change of sides, it was Dost who made it 3-0 (52nd). Dräger (55th) and Michel (75th) scored the last first league goals for Paderborn.
