Bundesliga final day: how it happened

Bundesliga final day: preview

It's the climax of Germany's top flight and there is plenty still at stake. All nine games kick-off simultaneously at 15:30 CEST, potentially putting the onus on fans in the crowd to let the players know how there situation is developing in relation to other results.

At the top

Bayern Munich take a two point advantage over Borussia Dortmund into the final game and are at home which, in most cases, would suggest the title destination is already decided. The visitors, however, should not be underestimated. Eintracht Frankfurt reached the Europa League semi-finals, narrowly missing out over two legs to Chelsea, and despite being in sixth place in the league, can still end in fourth, for a Champions League place next season. They may be on a five-game winless streak, but know a final day three points will jump them ahead if their rivals slip up.

A win for Frankfurt opens the door for Dortmund to break Bayern's recent dominance. They would, though, need to overcome Borussia Mönchengladbach, who currently sit in fourth, themselves looking to avoid that slip up mentioned above, and hope that Bayern fall in Munich. Lucien Favre and his players are still dreaming.

Champions League places

RB Leipzig have already secured third spot and will compete in Europe's showpiece competition next year. As stated above, both Mönchengladbach and Frankfurt have the chance to clinch the final spot, as do Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg, although the latter needs an unprecedented series of events to occur.

Europa League, top scorers, and more...

There are only two clubs in the entire league that cannot change their place this afternoon - namely Leipzig (3rd) and Stuttgart (16th) - so we aim to keep you across all the action as it happens, and what each event means to the final standings.
