Bundesliga Title on the Line: Dortmund vs Bayern on Final Day


The Bundesliga title race is set to come to a thrilling conclusion on Saturday, with either Borussia Dortmund or Bayern Munich set to be crowned champions. Dortmund currently lead by two points and will need to beat Mainz at home to secure the title, while Bayern will be hoping for a slip-up from their rivals as they visit Cologne at the same time. Bayern’s superior goal difference means that a draw won’t be enough for Dortmund if Bayern win. The season will be considered a failure for Bayern if they fail to win the title, despite the fact that they have the lowest points total at this stage of the season since 2011. Meanwhile, Leipzig are assured of third place, but fourth place is still up for grabs between Union Berlin and Freiburg. One of these teams will finish fifth and qualify for the Europa League, while sixth-placed Bayer Leverkusen and seventh-placed Wolfsburg hope to join them depending on the outcome of the German Cup final on June 3. Finally, Augsburg, Stuttgart, Bochum and Schalke are all fighting for survival on the final day, with the bottom two teams being relegated and the team that finishes above them going into a playoff against the second division’s third-placed finisher.
