Bundesliga: Champions? Europa League? Descent? Final decisions – BUNDESLIGA

The Bundesliga season finale is approaching on Saturday (15:30)! And while it’s already clear who the champion is, there are still some decisions to be made.

At the end of the season, all matches take place at the same time. Here you can find out where to watch this mega conference live on TV.

Last place in the Champions League

Platz Squad Points goal difference
1 Bayern Monaco 76 60
2 Borussia Dortmund 66 32
3 Bayer Leverkusen 61 32
4 RB Leipzig 57 35
5 SC Freiburg 55 13

Seats one to four qualify for the Uefa Champions League. And although Bayern, Dortmund and Leverkusen have already been determined, Leipzig’s participation is not yet certain. Why: If Freiburg win against Leverkusen and Leipzig lose against Bielefeld, the SCF will play in the premier class next year.

Europa League: where will Freiburg play next season?

Everything is still possible for the Bresgovians in the season finale. Hopefully, coach Christian Streich’s (56) side will even secure a place in the Champions League. If Freiburg lose their first match against Bayer Leverkusen and Union Berlin win against Bochum, the club could lose their participation in the Europa League.

5 SC Freiburg 55 13
6 Union Berlin 54 5
7 1. FC Cologne 52 4

Participation in the Europa League ensures fifth place in the standings. And although “Effzeh” still has a mathematical chance of getting the seat, the ticket will probably go to Freiburg or Union.

Who ends up in the Europa Conference League?

Freiburg, Union or Cologne. One of these three teams will finish sixth on Saturday night. This team is now in the Europa Conference League qualification. It would be a great end to the season for the Irons fans and for the Cologne fans. Anyone who crosses their fingers for the SCF would likely be disappointed after this great season if the Breisgau team didn’t make it to the Champions League or Europa League.

Direct relegation, relegation or relegation?

Platz Squad Points goal difference
15 Hertha BSC 33 -33
16 VfB Stuttgart 30 -19
17 Arminia Bielefeld 27 -26
18 Greuther Fürth 18 -53

Who is saved from the descent?

Greuther Fürth will play in the second division next season. But who has to end up in relegation and which team can stand up? Hertha’s side are expecting a tough opponent at Borussia Dortmund on the final matchday. If the Berliners lose significantly and Stuttgart win big against 1. FC Köln, the “Big City Club” must be relegated.

Although Bielefeld’s chances are slim and the team plays against RB Leipzig, Bielefeld has not yet relegated.

The rest of the decisions

  • Mainz and Hoffenheim play in a long-distance duel for ninth place in the standings.
  • Gladbach, Bochum, Frankfurt and Wolfsburg are fighting for positions from 10 to 13.
  • While Fürth conceded fewer than six goals in the match against Augsburg, they conceded fewer than Schalke last year.
  • If Bayern score five goals against Wolfsburg, the team will have more goals than last season (99).
  • Thomas Müller is only one assist from having the same number of assists as last year (18).
  • Kerem Demirbay and Kouadio Koné have already received ten yellow cards. Who will have the most bookings at the end of the season?
