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

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

Despite beating Borussia Mönchengladbach 2-1 in the last game of the season, Hamburg needed already relegated Cologne to defeat Wolfsburg to have any chance of surviving.

Dozens of riot police, including several on horses, charged onto the pitch and lined up in front of the Hamburg fans.

Hamburg have become the second team to be relegated from the Bundesliga, ending a record run of 55 straight seasons in the German top flight.

"This is an extremely painful moment for the entire Hamburg SV", said club President Bernd Hoffmann.

" 'Lethal Weapon' is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen". His starring role in Lethal Weapon season three will be Scott's first time taking on a network series regular role.

Borussia Monchengladbach fans took rustling to new levels when they had a clock banner counting down the minutes to Hamburg's relegation to the second tier. "The club has lost one of its uniquenesses".

Some Hamburg players broke down and cried after referee Felix Brych finally ended the game after a long hold-up due to the disturbances.

Hamburg fans staged protests at the Volksparkstadion following club's first relegation from Bundesliga since its formation in 1963.

Hamburg will join Cologne in the second division next season, while Wolfsburg go into a relegation playoff.

IN NUMBERS: Cleveland Cavaliers vs Boston Celtics
While Game 1 most certainly won't be the end-all for the Cavaliers or the Celtics, it will gauge much of this series. He also ranks second in three-pointers made (346), behind Ray Allen (385), and third in assists.

Even after going down to 10 men following Bobby Wood's dismissal in the 71st minute, Hamburg continued to hold on, hoping for a miracle that ultimately never came.

Bayer Leverkusen might have pipped Dortmund to Europe's top competition on goal difference but fell short in a 3-2 win over Hannover and must be content with fifth place and Europa League qualification.

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.

Bayern Munich, which sealed the title with five rounds to go, celebrated with the trophy and medals despite losing at home to Stuttgart 4-1.
