Hamburg relegated from Bundesliga for first time

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

As a result, Wolfsburg face a relegation playoff but avoided the immediate drop as Hamburg went down for the first time in Bundesliga history despite a 2-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach.

So maybe we can't be all that shocked that tensions boiled over when the Bundesliga's "Dinosaur", as Hamburg are known, said its painful goodbyes.

Dozens of riot police, several on horses, charged on to the pitch and lined up in front of the Hamburg fans, who lit flares and threw them behind the Gladbach goal when it became clear that the team was on their way to the second division.

Two lines of police formed in opposition to the rioting supporters - some of whom were wearing masks - while mounted officers were also spotted.

A clock in the Volksparkstadion displays - to the second - how long Hamburg had been in the German top flight but will now need to be reset followings the club's relegation.

Hamburg were leading 2-1 in stoppage-time when referee Felix Brych stopped the game.

They join Cologne in being relegated to the second tier, while Wolfsburg play Holstein Kiel in the promotion-relegation play-off.

Hamburg had taken an early lead through Aaron Hunt and went in front again with a Lewis Holtby goal just past the hour after Gladbach had levelled the score before halftime. They lost on the final day of the season 3-1 to Hoffenheim, but Bayer Leverkusen couldn't snatch the fourth spot due to a worse goal difference.

The clock had previously recorded the amount of time the club had been in the Bundesliga.

Leverkusen instead are forced to settle for a place in the 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. They can claim a spot in the Europa League if Bayern complete the double with a German Cup win over Eintracht Frankfurt next weekend.
