On the last matchday of the 2023/24 Bundesliga season, the fight for the European Cup places and, above all, staying in the league will be exciting again. In the table cellar, VfL Bochum at Werder Bremen and FSV Mainz 05 at VfL Wolfsburg have the best cards to save themselves in the season finale on Saturday (3:30 p.m.). Union Berlin, currently in 16th place, has to win its home game against SC Freiburg and hope for help. In the event of a defeat, there is even a risk of direct relegation if the penultimate 1. FC Köln wins at 1. FC Heidenheim and catches up with Union’s goal difference, which is three goals worse.

Union captain Christopher Trimmel continues to believe that his team will stay in the league. “We definitely stay positive, don’t get nervous or throw away our nerves,” said the 37-year-old. “It’s important that we have a clear plan and that the whole club is behind us.”

Eintracht Frankfurt can secure sixth place with just one point against RB Leipzig, which is enough for at least the Europa League. If Borussia Dortmund wins the Champions League on June 1st, the Bundesliga sixth place will even receive the right to start in the premier class. SC Freiburg also has a chance of seventh place, which will certainly qualify for the playoffs of the Conference League and, if Bayer Leverkusen wins the DFB Cup, even the start of the Europa League, in the last game under coach Christian Streich at Union Berlin.

Three-way battle for eighth place

Eighth place can also be achieved by 1. FC Heidenheim (against Cologne), FC Augsburg (in Leverkusen) and Werder Bremen (against Bochum). This would be enough for the Conference League playoffs if Leverkusen wins the DFB Cup final against second division team 1. FC Kaiserslautern on May 25th.
