Werder Bremen 2-3 Schalke

Schalke rounded off their Bundesliga season with a 3-2 victory in a thrilling encounter with Werder Bremen.

Julian Draxler put the visitors ahead after half an hour, but they were soon pegged back, with Claudio Pizarro equalising just before the break. However, in the second half, two strikes from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar put Huub Stevens' men into a commanding lead, and although Pizarro pulled one back, it was too little too late.

Schalke had already wrapped up third spot, but this result has confirmed that Werder Bremen will not play European football, despite occupying a top six spot for much of the season.
Mainz 0-3 Borussia Monchengladbach

Borussia Monchengladbach ended their fantastic season with a 3-0 away win over Mainz.

Marco Reus marked his last ever appearance for Lucien Favre's team with two goals either side of half-time, before Igor De Camargo wrapped up the victory with a strike 20 minutes from time.

Gladbach will face a play-off match in order to qualify for next season's Champions League, while Mainz finish the season in 13th place, comfortably clear of the drop zone.
Nurnberg 1-4 Leverkusen
Bayer Leverkusen wrapped up a disappointing season with a dominant 4-1 win over Nurnberg in Bavaria.

The visitors went into the break two goals to the good thanks to two Stefan Kiessling strikes in the first half, and although Robert Mak pulled one back just after the break, Andre Schurrle secured the victory soon after, before Kiessling completed his hat-trick on the strike of full-time.

Bayern Leverkusen have now sealed a fifth place finish, and will compete in next season's Europa League, while Nurnberg have ended the season in 10th place.
Hannover 2-1 Kaiserslautern
Hannover sealed Europa League football for a second consecutive season thanks to a 2-1 victory over already-relegated Kaiserslautern at home.

It looked as though the visitors could be leaving the top flight with a bang when Pierre De Wit put his side ahead after just seven minutes, but just before the break, Alexander Bugera levelled the match when he put the ball past his own 'keeper. 

Didier Ya Konan
completed the turn-around with 20 minutes to spare.
Augsburg 1-0 Hamburg
Hamburg ended their disappointing season with a 1-0 defeat to Augsburg in Bavaria.

Ja-Cheol Koo marked the end of his loan spell with the hosts with the decisive goal 10 minutes from the break, and although Hamburg had numerous chances to level the encounter, they were unable to equalise.

This result sees Augsburg end their first season in the Bundesliga in 14th place, two points and one spot against Hamburg.
Stuttgart 3-2 Wolfsburg
Stuttgart secured a top-six finish thanks to a 3-2 victory over Wolfsburg, but were unable to wrestle fifth place from Bayer Leverkusen.

It had appeared that Felix Magath's side had been cruising to victory, after goals from Patrick Helmes and Marco Russ sent the visitors into a commanding lead with just 20 minutes remaining.

However, Cacau pulled on back on 73 minutes, and within moments, Maza and Ibrahima Traore had turned the match on its head.

Wolfsburg finish the season in eighth place.
Hertha Berlin 3-1 Hoffenheim
Hertha Berlin clambered out of the automatic relegation places on the final day of the season with a 3-1 win over Hoffenheim.

Victory was an absolute necessity for the capital club, and they found themselves a goal in front after a quarter of an hour thanks to an Anis Ben-Hatira strike.

Ryan Babel received his marching orders just before the break thanks to two bookings within a minut of one another, and Hertha seemed to be cruising to victory when Ben-Hatira doubled the lead with 10 minutes to go.

Marvin Compper pulled one back with just five minutes to spare, but Raffael restored his side's two-goal advantage on the stroke of full-time.

Thanks to Koln's defeat to Bayern Munich, Hertha Berlin will now compete in a two-legged tie with the third placed team from the second tier in an effort to secure top flight status.
