Last game that the soccer world will be seeing Philipp Lahm and Xabi Alonso. Bayern won't be the same without Lahm.

As things stand now, Hoffenheim will get the last auto qualifying spot for the Champions League while Dortmund will have to go through qualifying stages. Hamburg in the relegation playoff spot.

Lahm getting a great ovation from the crowd now that he is being substituted. Alonso got one earlier as well. Farewell to both of them.

Hard to believe I will never see Lahm play again.

Officially over. We'll have to do something like this again soon when Robbery leave.

Dortmund recovered to beat Bremen and will go straight to the group stages of the UCL while Hoffenheim will have to qualify. Koln won to go to Europa League for the first time in ~20 years along and Hertha will go as well. Freiburg could go as well if Dortmund beat Frankfurt in the cup final. Hamburg won to avoid the relegation playoff at the expense of their opponents, Wolfsburg (who are now in that spot).

And guess what, Hamburg has survived AGAIN. Unreal. They didn't even have any useful chances.

Wolfsburg should still stay in the league though as Braunschweig are crap.

Really sad to see both Lahm and Xabi depart, both incredibly great and humble footballers.

And Aubameyang beats out Lewandowski for the Bundesliga scoring title.

So Tuchel and Dortmund officially break up. ESPN actually had a decent article on the situation: http://www.espnfc.com/club/borussia-dortmund/124/blog/post/3133581/thomas-tuchel-toxic-breakdown-with-dortmund-hierarchy-leads-to-premature-exit

Essentially Tuchel was fighting with half the club (Zorc + Watzke + Head scout + Senior players), so even though he was a good coach (great tactician), he couldn't stay on.

Now the issue is this. Rumor has it Favre may stay in Nice one more season (also mentions he won't come cheap via compensation to Nice), and Nagelsmann rejected them to stay in Hoffenheim. Stoger is mentioned, but he too might stay in Koln.

I reckon they end up with Favre, but it could be a big loss if they don't get him. Especially with Auba wanting to leave too.

Dortmund have to go all in on Favre in my opinion. If they miss out on him they're going to be at a bit of a loss. I can't really see Favre turning down Dortmund to stay at Nice for another season and I think the partnership should work out quite well. Definitely not a lot of room for error on Dortmund's side though.

Definitely crazy that Hamburg just will not go down, they're the Sam Allardyce of football clubs. Wolfsburg ended up staying up as well with Mario Gomez get a really questionable (ie: bs) goal via a handball.

John Brooks apparently moving to Wolfsburg for the largest transfer fee ever for an American player.

Wolfsburg are a richer club but seems like a lateral move at best considering where they finished this season.

Yeah definitely an odd move for Brooks. The only thing I can think is that maybe the ceiling is higher at Wolfsburg than Hertha?

With Tuchel out and Auba on his way out, and potentally Farve in, who do they get to replace Auba. Laca? Balo? Dembele(Celtic)?

I think Lacazette would be a great signing but it sounds like they'll have to go head to head with Atletico which could be difficult.

Its certainly not a lateral move and its silly to say its one just based on this years league table. John Brooks can compete for CL spots at Wolfsburg and he will never do that at Hertha.

Nice just released a statement saying they'll reject any approach for Farve. So he seems out.

Stogel (FC Koln) has already rejected them. As has Nagelsmann (Hoffeinheim).

Rumor via L'Equipe is that they'll approach Giovanni Van Bronckhorst of Feyenoord for the manager position.

Disastrous outcome for BVB if it plays out this way.
