With two matches remaining in the Bundesliga season, Eintracht Frankfurt stayed in top four contention thanks to an 85th-minute equalizer from Ajdin Hrustic against Mainz on Sunday.
12th-place Mainz had taken the lead at the Waldstadion through Karim Onisiwo, but Hrustic provided an unbelievable response only five minutes from time.
MUNICH - Bayern Munich celebrated their record-extending ninth consecutive Bundesliga title on Saturday with a 6-0 demolition of Borussia Mönchengladbach and a hat-trick from Robert Lewandowski, who edged closer to a 49-year-old scoring record.
The champions had sealed the title before kickoff following RB Leipzig's 3-2 defeat at Borussia Dortmund earlier on Saturday.
The average value of the world's 50 leading sports teams rose to $3.43 billion in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to an annual list published by Forbes on Friday that was topped by the NFL's Dallas Cowboys.
Forbes said the average value of the world's 50 most valuable teams on the list was up 11 percent from last year's ranking.
As domestic leagues across Europe enter the final weeks of their seasons, not only are league titles at stake, but qualification for next season's Champions League is also yet to be resolved.
Only 11 of the 26 automatic qualification spots for the UCL group stage have been officially determined, and more than half of the 55 playoff spots are up for grabs.
With so many bids up for grabs across the continent, tracking the qualification process can be very difficult.
While fans of the European game will rightly be keeping an eye on the nail-biting title races in the top divisions of France and Spain, an exhilarating fight for promotion is coming to a head in Germany's second division.
With Bochum seemingly comfortable in first place on 60 points (first and second secure automatic promotion), the six teams below are dueling it out for second and third-placed finishes. It is incredibly high-stakes as unlike England's Championship, there is only one playoff place up for grabs as opposed to four.
MUNICH — Bayern Munich on Tuesday signed RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann to take over from Hansi Flick next season on a five-year contract, bringing to Munich one of Europe's most sought after young managers.
The 33-year-old took the reins at second-placed RB Leipzig in 2019 and led them to the Champions League semi-finals last year. Flick is leaving Bayern at the end of the season of his own free will despite having a contract until 2023.
I Can’t Stop Laughing At This Poor Defender Who Unwittingly Blocked 3 Shots In 5 Seconds (He’s Fine)
Werder Bremen defender Marco Friedl deserves the Scott Sterling Medal of Courage after the beating he took protecting his goal on Saturday. The 23-year-old Austrian blocked the ball not once, not twice but three times in about five seconds. The last two came with him writhing on the ground in pain from the first, including the last one after the whistle had blown. It was hilarious and miserable all at once.
MAINZ, Germany — Bayern Munich squandered its first chance to seal the Bundesliga title when it lost 2-1 at Mainz 05 on Saturday and will now have to wait for RB Leipzig's game on Sunday to see whether it has clinched its 31st German league crown.
Jonathan Burkardt stunned the visitors after three minutes, turning at the edge of the box and releasing only for Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer to turn the ball into his own goal.

El Schalke 04 jugará la próxima temporada en la categoría de plata del fútbol alemán, tras sellar una de las peores temporadas de su historia. No es primera vez, pero era algo que no le ocurría desde el ya lejano 1991.
La noticias sorprende de todos modos, debido a sus lustrosas vitrinas. Die Knappen (Los Mineros) ostentan siete antiguos campeonatos germanos, siete subcampeonatos de Bundesliga y cinco coronas en la Copa Alemania. Por su parte, en el espectro europeo, en 1997 derrotaron al Internazionale en la tanda de penales, para llevarse la Copa UEFA.
