Clock stops as Hamburg suffer first Bundesliga relegation

Hamburg fan protest: Chaotic scenes as flares stop game, massive police response

Fan chaos engulfed Hamburg as they were relegated from the Bundesliga for the first time in 55 years - despite beating Monchengladbach 2-1.

Wolfsburg's 4-1 home victory against Cologne condemned Hamburg to the drop, sparking chaotic scenes at the Volksparkstadion.

Dozens of riot police, several on horses, charged on to the pitch and lined up in front of the Hamburg fans, who lit flares and threw them behind the Gladbach goal when it became clear that the team was on their way to the second division.

The day started disastrously for Hamburg, as Joshua Guilavogui fired Wolfsburg ahead in the opening minute against Cologne.

Cologne lacked in penetration but they punished Wolfsburg's wastefulness at the half-hour mark as Jonas Hector marked the equalizer to shock the hosts.

Hamburg were leading 2-1 in stoppage-time when referee Felix Brych stopped the game.

After a 15-minute delay due to crowd trouble, the game was able to end.

Borussia Dortmund's hope of securing automatic qualification to next season's UEFA Champions League was ended as they lost 3-1 away to Hoffenheim.

Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Buerki gifted Hoffenheim possession with a awful clearance on 26 minutes, allowing Andrej Kramaric to fire the home side in front.

Champions Bayern Munich saw their five-game winning run brought to an end as they were thrashed 4-1 at the Alianz Arena by Stuttgart.

Marco Reus equalised for Dortmund after half-time, but goals from Adam Szalai and Pavel Kaderabek fired Hoffenheim into Europe's elite.

That placing will see Stuttgart join Leverkusen and Leipzig in the Europa League, providing Frankfurt do not overcome Bayern in next weekend's DFB-Pokal final.

Leverkusen instead are forced to settle for a place in the UEFA Europa League, along with Leipzig, whose 6-2 thumping of Hertha Berlin ultimately counted for little as the other results failed to go their way.

Ruthless on the break, the visitors tore through Bayern, as Daniel Ginczek, Anastasios Donis and Chadrac Akolo all found the net on the counter-attack.
