Hamburg CHAOS as Bundesliga side are relegated for the first time in 55 years

That result may carry an asterisk though, with fan protests and flares causing the game to be stopped deep in injury time.

Talk about creativity! The reason Gladbach fans came up with the idea is in relation to the fact Hamburg have had a clock banner around their stadium detailing how long they've been in the German top flight.

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

Hamburg have been relegated for the first time in the club's history - and opposition fans aren't going to let them forget it.

Wolfsburg will face Holstein Kiel in the promotion-relegation play-off.

Jonas Hector brought Cologne level just after the half-hour mark with an exquisite chip, but Divock Origi restored the lead for Wolfsburg, edging Hamburg closer to disaster.

Wolfsburg came into the final round still in with a chance of securing 15th spot and guaranteed survival, but Freiburg's 2-0 home win over Augsburg put paid to those hopes.

Andrej Kramaric fired TSG ahead, with Marco Reus levelling before Adam Szalai and Pavel Kaderabek steered Hoffenheim into third place, while Dortmund took fourth.

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.

Missing out were Bayer Leverkusen, who will be frustrated to have to settle for the Europa League after a 3-2 home win over Hannover.

RB Leipzig's Jean-Kevin Augustin scored twice in their 6-2 demolition of hosts Hertha Berlin as they joined Leverkusen in the Europa League.

Elsewhere, Guido Burgstaller's bullet header saw Schalke edge Eintracht Frankfurt 1-0 and Werder Bremen left it late to triumph 2-1 at Mainz, Theodor Gebre Selassie grabbing the victor after Florian Kainz had cancelled out Jean-Philippe Gbamin's opener.
