Saturday was the last stage of the first German league, the big question mark being in the bottom of the table where was to be named the second team that relegated and the band that will have to play the dam, ie, the group ranked third in the second league. Of course, the games from Koln and Berlin stood in the spotlight, there are many options.
Hertha – Hoffenheim 3-1 (1-0)
Berliners have approached this very important game offensive and cautiously taking all measures to avoid being caught on the counterattack. Ben-Hatira executed a free kick from the right side, several players were not raised in the box to play ball crept along goalie in the net, 1-0. Just before the break, Babel saw a yellow card, for a simulation and red, the guests playing all the second half with a man less. The referee’s decision remains very rough and at least questionable. Second half brought a bitter fight with more goals but also with many cards and nearly 40 fouls, but ultimately the best hosts and stubborn and have fulfilled their purpose.
Koln – Bayern 1-4 (0-1)
Guests with the band that will play for Champions League final, missing international players suspended (Alabai, Badtsuber, Gustavo) were the better team at first, with initiative and numerous attack actions. In an attack carried by Ribery, centering the square found Müller that has scored from about 8 meters, 0-1. At this time Koln was relegated. After the break Koln’s defense completely collapsed, first Geromel and McKenna, with united powers have drifted into the goal’s focus Ribery, and then Robben scored with a placed shot, even if Novakovic managed to mitigate the failure.
