Freiburg also has to be relegated to the 2nd league after the 1-2 in Hannover.

The 2nd Bundesliga: The Battle For Promotion To The 1st League
After FC Ingolstadt had already been determined as the champion in the 2nd division, 3 teams were still fighting for the one promotion spot and the relegation spot until the very end. Darmstadt 98 took second place and thus the direct promotion spot, while Karlsruher SC came in third, which means a duel against Hamburg for participation in the 1st league. The big loser was 1. FC Kaiserslautern, who only finished 4th and thus have to stay in the 2nd league. VfR Aalen and Erzgebirge Aue were relegated to the 3rd league. 1860 Munich can still secure its place in Liga 2 in the two relegation matches against Holstein Kiel.
Explanation Of The Difficult Words:
The Bundesliga is the first German soccer league. It has existed since 1963. FC Bayern Munich has won the most championship titles.
FC Bayern is the Record champion of the German Bundesliga because the club could win the championship 24 times – more often than any other club.
The Champions League (pronounced “Tschämpiens Liig”) is the highest European competition in soccer. It pits the best teams in Europe against each other. The predecessor of the Champions League is the “European Cup of National Champions”, where only the national champions played against each other, in the Champions League also play the runners-up and from many countries also the third and fourth place.
The 16th place in the 1st league and the 3rd place in the 2nd league play against each other for participation in the 1st league in the next season. This place is called Relegation place. It is played twice against each other- away and home.
