All decisions have been made in the Bundesliga and the 3rd division – but four teams are now in the relegation. The most important information at a glance.
The season is not yet over for four German professional teams.
Who plays in the Bundesliga relegation?
Augsburg, Stuttgart, Schalke or Bochum – all four were in the draw for 16th place in the table before the season finale VfB Stuttgart, who gets the chance to achieve the goal of staying up in the league via the detour of relegation. There the Swabians meet the Hamburger SVwho once again failed spectacularly despite the win in Sandhausen because Heidenheim secured victory in injury time in Regensburg.
Who plays in the relegation to the 2nd league?
Arminia Bielefeld threatens after relegation from the Bundesliga, however, the next relegation. The Armines also have to go into the relegation and get it there with the SV Wehen Wiesbaden to do. The Hessians ended the season fourth after a dramatic last day of play. This season there was a special feature, since the second team of SC Freiburg, as second in the 3rd division, is not allowed to be promoted, third-placed VfL Osnabrück goes straight up.
When do the relegation games take place?
The first leg between VfB and HSV for the last place in the Bundesliga will take place next Thursday, June 1 (LIVE from 8.45 p.m. on kicker). The Swabians have home rights first, and they have to play in Hamburg four days later, on June 5 (8:45 p.m.).
The duels for the last remaining starting place in league two will take place on Friday, June 2 (LIVE from 8.45 p.m. on kicker) and on Tuesday, June 6 (8.45 p.m.). Wehen Wiesbaden enjoys home rights in the first leg, the second leg then rises to the Alm.
Who is broadcasting the games on TV?
The private broadcaster “SAT.1” broadcasts all four games live on free TV. The broadcaster also streams the games via ran.de, sat1.de and also in the paid stream JOYN+.
Does the away goals rule apply?
As in the previous year, the away goals rule does not apply this time either. In the event of a tie after the first and second leg, the game goes into extra time and, if necessary, a penalty shoot-out.
What’s the balance?
The relegation has been played out again since 2008/09 – and the Bundesliga team usually prevailed. The second division team only celebrated three times, Nuremberg (2009 against Energie Cottbus), Fortuna Düsseldorf (2012 against Hertha BSC) and Union Berlin (2019 against VfB Stuttgart).
The situation is completely different in the duel between the second and third division teams, where the lower-class team prevailed ten times in 14 duels.
