Title will be decided on the final day as Bayern were held to a draw at Leipzig while Dortmund beat Fortuna (barely, Fortuna almost equalized in 96th minute). Bayern host Frankfurt on the final day who still have top 4 to play for as Dortmund visit Gladbach who too have top 4 aspirations

Top 4 is essentially down to three teams, we need to wait and see what Frankfurt do tomorrow against Mainz but if they win they are 4th before the final day but with the toughest fixture (Bayern away). Leverkusen shot themselves in the foot today with home draw to Schalke so they are tied on points with Gladbach. Gladbach host Dortmund while Leverkusen go to Hertha

The final EL spot is essentially down to 3 teams (Wolfsburg 52, Hoffenheim 51, Bremen 50). Bremen picked up a massive win at Hoffenheim today to keep themselves alive and keep Hoffenheim from getting the upper hand. Wolfsburg host Augsburg, Hoffenheim go to Mainz, Bremen host RBL

Relegation is all settled: Hannover and Nurnberg down with at least H96 doing it with a win while Stuttgart in the playoff following a win over Wolfsburg

Frankfurt hitting poor form at the wrong time and likely their EL run having a lot to do with it. Lost at home to Mainz so top 4 will be difficult, in fact they might miss out on Europe completely based on certain results if they lose to Bayern

No surprises so far, Bayern up 1:0 over Frankfurt but hammering them with numerous chances and a disallowed goal. Dortmund took the lead late in the first half. Leverkusen, Hoffenheim and Bremen winning

At the moment Leverkusen in the CL; Gladbach, Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim in the EL

Bayern won the game with ease minus some Frankfurt pressure in the opening minutes of the 2nd half where they equalized. Ribery and Robben both scored when the come on as well. Dortmund did their job and beat Gladbach 2:0 but only have themselves to blame for not winning the title in a winnable season

Leverkusen take 4th place after they beat Hertha + Gladbach's loss, to his credit Bosz did a good job there but will be interesting to see what happens to them in the summer, lots of their talented youngsters linked to moves. Gladbach's consolation is the ELGS where they will be joined by Wolfsburg who hammered Augsburg 8:1 :eek:

Frankfurt can thank Mainz for 7th spot, 10-man Hoffenheim lost a two goal lead to Mainz who added two late goals to win. Frankfurt will have to go through qualifying, the fans enjoyed the result not sure if the club can handle these extra games, you saw how they collapsed this season and they will lose their better players too

Can't feel too bad for Stuttgart as they have been awful for the entire season and good to see a new face, although not sure how competitive the likes of Union and Paderborn will be
