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.

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.

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.
