Berlin (dpa) – The most important decisions in the Bundesliga have been put off – now FC Bayern wants to complete its 30th masterpiece on Tuesday.
After the 2-1 win against Borussia Mönchengladbach, another success at Werder Bremen on the upcoming match day would mean the eighth title in a row. Thanks to a late hit by Erling Haaland to 1-0 at Fortuna Düsseldorf, Borussia Dortmund prevented the Munich team from celebrating their premature championship on matchday 31 and were able to enjoy qualifying for the Champions League. There is no definitive clarity in the relegation battle – but a club no longer believes in being saved. The most important thing about the game day:
MASTER CELEBRATION: After the success of his teammates, Thomas Müller sent photo greetings with private insights. The Munich-based top submitter against Gladbach, as well as Robert Lewandowski, each held a dog in his arms – wearing the red Bayern jerseys. The 30-year-old is said to be back at Werder. “We want to win there, that’s not a question,” said winning goal scorer Leon Goretzka, looking at the game on Tuesday. “There are two guys coming back who will do us good. And of course we want to drive the thing home.”
But even without an assignment, Müller was the topic of conversation on Saturday. According to his statements on FC Bayern’s transfer policy, sports director Hasan Salihamidzic urged the Bayern professionals to be cautious. “Of course, after the cup game, when Thomas was not so happy with the performance of the team, Thomas maybe dribbled a bit with his statement,” said Salihamidzic before the game on pay-TV channel Sky. “We talked about it the next day, we sat down. I told him it wasn’t correct.”
Müller, this week – when asked about speculation about a commitment from Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz – said, among other things, that it is “paradoxical” if you always talk about newcomers and at the same time save salaries. “
DESCENT FIGHT: Niclas Füllkrug’s cheers rounded off the joy at Werder Bremen with the 5: 1 at SC Paderborn. With his comeback after a cruciate ligament tear and almost nine months of compulsory break, the 27-year-old set the end point. “I imagined that I would still meet in the last few games, of course not in the smallest detail, but that this is what happens today is, of course, madness,” enthused Füllkrug. Only because of the goal difference worse by one goal, Werder is now in table 17. behind Fortuna Düsseldorf and shows the much better shape curve.
With eight points behind the duo, Paderborn only has theoretical chances to stay in the class. “If we had won today, something would still have been possible,” said SCP coach Steffen Baumgart. “If you do that, you don’t need to talk anymore.”
HOPE DUEL: 1. FSV Mainz 05 and FC Augsburg want to take an important step in the relegation battle in a direct duel on Sunday (3:30 p.m. / Sky). With a win, the greatest danger would be averted for now. However, the Augsburg team were more or less unsuccessful recently, six of the past seven away games were lost.
YELLOW RECORD: In the 32nd minute at 1: 5 against Bremen, Klaus Gjasula wrote a small chapter in Bundesliga history. The 30-year-old SC Paderborn midfielder was booked for a foul on Joshua Sargent – for the 17th time this season. Gjasula thus holds the sole record in front of Tomasz Hajto, who was warned 16 times in the 1998/99 shirt of MSV Duisburg. Since the restart after the Corona break, Gjasula saw yellow in all of his five appearances.
