The Stuttgart team lost 1: 3 against SV Darmstadt 98 on the last matchday, but ended the season in second place. Hamburger SV meanwhile missed the promotion delegation.
He lost 1: 5 against SV Sandhausen and was therefore unable to overtake 1. FC Heidenheim, who lost 0-3 to second division champions Bielefeld. A draw would have been enough for the Hamburgers because of the defeat of the direct competition to still be third. An own goal by Rick van Drongelen (13th minute) and a goal by Kevin Behrens (21st minute) put HSV under pressure early on. Not much came of the former Bundesliga dino for a long time. A penalty goal by Aaron Hunt in the 59th minute made it exciting again. A penalty on the other hand by Behrens missed the Hamburg knockout in the 84th minute. Substitute Mario Engels and Dennis Diekmeier then put the lid on shortly afterwards. At the end of the table, Dynamo Dresden and SV Wehen Wiesbaden rose from the 2nd Bundesliga as expected. Dresden played 2-2 against VfL Osnabrück, while Wiesbaden defeated FC St. Pauli 5-3. 1. FC Nürnberg moved into the relegation delegation, playing 1-1 at Holstein Kiel. After a 2-1 victory at SpVgg Greuther Fürth, Karlsruher SC was able to pull past Nuremberg and hold the class directly. Due to the poor goal difference between Dresden and Wiesbaden, it was clear in advance that it would be almost impossible to keep the class.
The results of the other games of the last match day: Hannover 96 - VfL Bochum 2: 0, Jahn Regensburg - Erzgebirge Aue 1: 2.
