Bundesliga J33: Leverkusen will go to the Champions League | DW Sports | DW

Thanks to their 4-2 win over TSG Hoffenheim, Bayer Leverkusen have secured their place in C1 next season. The club joins Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, both of whom have qualified for several weeks already.

The teammates of Moussa Diaby, author of a new goal on Saturday, are also guaranteed to finish third. So their performance is better than last year, when they finished sixth. For coach Gerardo Sewan, this season proves that the team has good dynamism.

This qualification to the Champions League is an important step in our development. This gives us additional arguments to look for players to make them grow. But here, we are above all happy with this qualificationThe Spanish-Swiss technician reassured.

I have a lot of people to thank inside the club, all those people who made the club work behind the scenes. We have good sports structures, and we have good financial resources. Once again, I’m really proud of this team’s evolution. I am also very happy for Rudi Fuller, who will be retiring at the end of the year which we have made happy.

Leipzig regain the lead

The battle for fourth place between Leipzig and SC Freiburg is still raging. Yesterday, Domenico Tedesco’s men clearly outperformed their rivals by beating FC Augsburg 4-0. A victory was obtained in particular thanks to a new double of Christopher Nkunku.

With a two-point advantage over Freiburg, who fell to Union Berlin 4-1, the RB right-back could be content with a draw next week to qualify for the Champions League. But according to Emil Forsberg, it would be necessary to be more ambitious than that.

It was important to win tonight. Now we’re going to Bielefeld to win too, and play the Champions League again. This is our goal. Then we go to Berlin to play in the German Cup final, which we also want to win. We still have a lot to play for at the end of the seasonThe Swedish midfielder appreciated after the match.Today’s victory was important for confidence: that’s what we needed. It was good to achieve such a performance.

Regarding the last place in the European League, everything will be played between Union Berlin, currently sixth, and FC Cologne, seventh. Cologne who were beaten 1-0 by Wolfsburg on Saturday but cemented themselves by seeing their direct rivals bow out and thus secured at least a place for the Europa League conference.

Stuttgart can still hope

At the bottom of the standings, Stuttgart earned a valuable point in a 2-2 draw with champions Bayern Munich. Thus, the club remains in the race to maintain.

For Pellegrino Matarazzo, this important victory is by no means a coincidence.

During the week, I showed my players scenes where Bayern Munich was most vulnerable, in order to give them confidence. We knew the Bavarians would make up their exemplary team to present their new title in the best possible way. We started the game well and opened the scoring. But to beat this Bayern Munich team, you have to be very efficientThe American technician said.

Despite everything, the players fought with a lot of energy. We can win next week. Then hopefully that will be enough to keep himself straight.

Like Omar Marmoush against Leon Goretzka, Stuttgart fought well against Bayern Munich. Enough to hope it lasts next week?

To regain 15th place next week, he will have to win his match against FC Cologne and hope to defeat Hertha BSC in Dortmund.

In any case, Stuttgart is already almost guaranteed to play at least in the play-off matches, as after their 2-1 defeat to Bochum on Friday night, Armenia Bielefeld is almost officially relegated to the second division due to a smaller goal difference.

Schalke are back in the first division

In the second division, if the fate of Werder Bremen, Hamburg or Darmstadt has not yet been decided, Schalke 04 for its part ensured his return to the elite only a year after his relegation, on Saturday, at home, as a son It turned things around for Sankt Pauli to win 3-2 thanks to a goal from Rodrigo Zalazar. And the young Uruguayan player did not hide his happiness.

I don’t think that even in my wildest dreams, I would have imagined a moment like this. It was an incredible feeling. Honestly, I didn’t know what to do when I scored: I wanted to run, I was about to cry. I’m glad I finally moved to the Bundesliga with this club, that’s where it belongs. We are really happyZelzar said after this totally crazy match.

Note that the party was spoiled to some extent by the movements of the fans in the stands, which caused the fans to suffer several injuries.
