BAYERN MUNICH WIN 2017-18 GERMAN BUNDESLIGA

Bayern Munich 1-4 Stuttgart

 

Bayern Munich goal: Tolisso (21' minutes)

VfB Stuttgart goals: Ginczek (5' minutes, 55' minutes), Donis (42' minutes), Akolo (52' minutes)

 

His side lost Bayern manager Jupp Heynckes' final home match. Heynckes was looking to go out on a win in front of his home supporters. But Heynckes’ final Bundesliga match as boss of FC Bayern München ended instead in defeat as his men went down 4-1 to a determined VfB Stuttgart side at the Allianz Arena on a sunny Saturday, May 12. Superstar Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski ended the 2017-18 season as the German Bundesliga's top scorer, with 29 goals - 14 above his nearest rivals.

 

Next Heynckes hopes to end his managerial career by winning the German double versus Eintracht Frankfurt in the upcoming DFB Pokal Final on May 19. However, Heynckes' Bundesliga career ended with defeat as 2018 Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich suffered a first home league loss in more than two years. Stuttgart won 4-1 on the final day of the season to end Bayern's 37-game unbeaten home run in the elite Bundesliga. Bayern lost to two goals from Daniel Ginczek and strikes from Anastasios Donis and Chadrac Akolo. A goal from Corentin Tolisso had made it 1-1. After the match, Bayern were presented with the prestigious Bundesliga trophy for the sixth season in a row as players poured beer over each other and the coaches in celebration. Heynckes who left the field to avoid being doused with beer, will retire after next Saturday's German Cup Final against Eintracht Frankfurt, whose manager Niko Kovac is replacing him.

Ginczek (5′) broke the deadlock by opening the scoring. Tolisso (21′) equalized for Bayern. Donis (42′) restored Stuttgart’s lead. And Akolo (52′) and Ginczek (55′) sealed the 4-1 victory for Stuttgart.

 

A brace from Daniel Ginczek helped the visitors claim a surprise win on the final day of the 2018-19 Bundesliga campaign. Anastasios Donis was key to the win, by being evasive and hard for Bayern to handle on the counter. Stuttgart went into the break 2-1 up due to goals from Ginczek and Donis either side of a Corentin Tolisso strike. After the break, Chadrac Akolo doubled their lead before another Ginczek goal sealed the win. The home match was supposed to be a day of celebration, but Bayern were stunned as Stuttgart displayed clinical counter-attacking to record a stunning win against the giant German club.

 

Surely Heynckes was hoping for an emphatic win and joyful farewell celebration in his last league game at the helm, but Stuttgart signaled their intentions to spoil the trophy celebrations early on. Donis surged past Rafinha and in behind the defense before cutting back for Ginczek to open the match scoring in the fifth minute. Bayern responded in the 21st minute, with Robert Lewandowski heavily involved in the build-up. Lewandowski easily beat Holger Badstuber on the turn before being taken out by Ron-Robert Zieler. The ball went into the path of Tolisso, who equalized. The mighty champions went heavily on the offensive, looking to take the lead, but they were caught out again by Donis as the winger went solo, before beating Sven Ulreich to put the visitors back in front. Stuttgart picked up where they left off at half-time. Emiliano Insua picked out Akolo with a cross and the striker sent home his header in the 52nd minute. Stuttgart’s fourth goal came on the rebound. After Ulreich saved Erik Thommy header from a Donis cross, Ginczek slotted home his second goal of the game.

In other matches, Hoffenheim goes into Champions League, Hamburg relegated.

 

Bundesliga champions FC Bayern München will be hoping to next win the DFB-Pokal final when they host a VfB Stuttgart side eyeing a move into the top six. FC Bayern München may already have wrapped up the title, but there was an awful lot riding on the final day of the Bundesliga season for other clubs. At the top of the Bundesliga table, four teams duked it out for a place in next season’s Champions League, while down at the bottom, three teams were fighting for survival to avoid relegation.

 

All nine games of Matchday 34 kicked off at the exact same time to bring the season to a thrilling conclusion.

 

With the title already won, motivation was a problem for Bayern against VfB Stuttgart in the farewell game for boss Jupp Heynckes in front of the Allianz Arena faithful. The defeat was soon forgotten as the German titans celebrated their sixth successive Bundesliga title in a joyful celebration in front of their adoring fans.

 

Hoffenheim qualifies for Champions League after beating Dortmund. TSG 1899 Hoffenheim knew they needed a victory in their final game against Borussia Dortmund if they were to have any chance of Champions League football. And they delivered the needed win as Julian Nagelsmann soundly beat Peter Steger's side 3-1 at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena. The margin of victory was a worrying one for Dortmund. They had to keep their eyes on Bayer 04 Leverkusen, who were eyeing a big enough win over Hannover 96 to not only move level on points with Dortmund in fourth place but ahead of them with a superior goal difference. Leverkusen got the victory, but not a big enough one to secure fourth, and Dortmund secured the Champions League by the skin of their teeth. The win was not enough to save Stoger’s job. The Austrian resigned from his position after the defeat. Leverkusen suffered a late heartbreak against Hannover in a dramatic finish to the season for Bayer Leverkusen who needed a big win at home over Hannover to have any chance of Champions League football. Dortmund were losing to Hoffenheim, and despite an early missed penalty, Leverkusen scored three amazing goals to find themselves 3-0 up against Hannover. It looked like they were going to get the fourth goal they needed when the referee pointed to the penalty spot five minutes from time, but VAR dramatically ruled out the penalty to break Leverkusen hearts. The decision set them back allowing Hannover to score two-stoppage time goals and erase any chance Heiko Herrlich’s side had of Champions League football next season.

 

RB Leipzig won their final game giving them an outside chance of securing Champions League football with a win over Hertha Berlin, but they were relying on other results to go their way. As it turned out, Leverkusen and Hoffenheim got the spots, so a thrilling 6-2 victory in Berlin proved to be only enough to secure sixth place. Hamburg went down as the historic German club got relegated from the Bundesliga for the first time in its long history. A 2-1 win over VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach proved too little too late, after VfL Wolfsburg beat 1. FC Köln 4-1. Unfortunately, fans did not take their club’s relegation well, and angry demonstrations delayed the final whistle. Gladbach fans in the away end didn’t help by having a clock counting down the minutes to Hamburg going down with mounted, armed police on the field protecting the players. Wolfsburg gave themselves a chance of survival. Die Wolfe needed a win to secure 16th place and give themselves a chance of staying in the Bundesliga by earning a place in the relegation play-off match. Bruno Labbadia’s men did what they had to do, defeating already-relegated Köln 4-1 to keep their Bundesliga hopes alive. Freiburg avoided the drop. Fans celebrated at the Schwarzwald-Stadion as SC Freiburg made sure of their place in the Bundesliga with a 2-0 victory over FC Augsburg. The victory saw them finish safely out of the bottom three.

 

Schalke too good for Frankfurt. FC Schalke 04 earned the second position on the table by beating Eintracht Frankfurt 1-0 to finish eight points clear of Hoffenheim. Frankfurt’s loss marked their fourth defeat in five games, a run of losses that spoiled any chance of European football next season as their coach Niko Kovac moves to take over from Jupp Heynckes at Bayern Munich next season. FSV Mainz 05 couldn’t beat SV Werder Bremen at home, but thankfully for them, they’d done just about enough to survive the drop by beating Dortmund away from home the week before. For Bremen, a 2-1 win capped off the season and secured 11th place on the table.

 

Die Roten’s final league game of the season had no impact on their campaign ahead of the cup final against Eintracht Frankfurt on May 19. Jupp Heynckes’ side enjoyed six consecutive Bundesliga wins before losing to Stuttgart. The run includes a 6-0 demolition of Borussia Dortmund, a 5-1 victory against Borussia Monchengladbach and a 3-1 win at Cologne.

 

Heynckes talked about his life after football before the game.

 

“I hope that I can return to my anonymity. On my farm, as they like to write. I hope that Bayern will be successful. You have a good squad. Tomorrow there will be many legends in the stadium. We will celebrate. But I can do without the beer shower.”

 

Stuttgart went into the clash with Bayern with an outside chance of slotting into the top six, which would earn them an unexpected spot in the Europa League. They are two points below sixth-placed RB Leipzig. Stuttgart won promotion into the Bundesliga last season, but have performed above expectations this term. They have won their last three league games without conceding.

 

Before the game, Stuttgart manager Tayfun Korkut was asked whether he thinks Bayern would take it easy in the last game.

 

“I wouldn’t want to go into a championship celebration after suffering defeat. Bayern are hungry for success.”

 

FC Bayern München manager Jupp Heynckes turned around the club’s fortunes earlier in 2017/18 by asking the players to match their talent with hard work and togetherness. The 73-year-old took over the team in October last year when the Bavarians were five points adrift of leaders Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga and on the back of a poor defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League. He turned fortunes around since his appointment by winning the league by a massive margin and also helping the side to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. Bayern have a DFB Cup final on 19 May to look forward to against Eintracht Frankfurt at the Olympiastadion Berlin.

 

“When I started I didn’t think of winning the championship title or advancing to the cup final or the Champions League semi-finals. First I considered how to approach the task, how to manage the training load. It was a difficult time. We were in the international break, the players returned to the Sabener Strasse one by one, so I gave a total of three inaugural addresses in the fitness room (laughing). I quoted Usain Bolt because I had just read a biography on him before I came to Munich. When he celebrated his biggest successes, he said something like: ‘Of course, I’m blessed with exceptional talent, but I could have never achieved the big triumphs without my team,’” said Heynckes. “I wanted to tell my team: you won’t achieve anything in football without team spirit and teamwork. That’s why you can’t just buy a team to win the Champions League. They have to grow together.  I never planned these eight months, they were an additional chapter in my biography, albeit very exceptional. To take over a club like Bayern aged 72, turn everything upside down and return it to winning ways: I can’t tell you how emotional it’ll be for me (to retire).”

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim 3-1 Borussia Dortmund

Hoffenheim downed Dortmund to finish third as TSG 1899 Hoffenheim qualified for the UEFA Champions League with a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund at the WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar Arena on Saturday. Kramaric (26′) broke the deadlock; Reus (58′) drew Dortmund level; Szalai (63′) restored hosts’ lead, and Kaderabek (73′) wrapped up the victory. Dortmund’s season ended in disaster as a first-half strike from Andrej Kramaric and goals from Adam Szalai and Pavel Kaderabek after the break saw TSG leapfrog them on the Bundesliga table, despite Marco Reus briefly restoring parity in the 58th minute. As a result of the victory, Hoffenheim finished third in the Bundesliga, while Dortmund scraped through to the Champions League in fourth.
