On Sunday for matchday 34 and the last one in the Bundesliga, VfL Bochum 1848 will host Bayer 04 Leverkusen at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion in Bochum, Germany. The hosts are currently in the relegation playoff spot in 16th place with 32 points, while Leverkusen stand in 6th place with 50 points in the table. Bochum are looking to stay out of the relegation battle with a positive result in their home ground and hope that the teams above them drop points. The visitors are in the top 6, which means they would be playing in Europa Conference League next season, but they have Wolfsburg just one point below looking to snatch that position away from them.
On Saturday, Bochum was unable to escape the relegation zone as they needed a goal from Keven Schlotterbeck in injury time to hold Hertha Berlin to a 1-1 draw. That came after a thrilling 3-2 victory over Augsburg that ended their 6 game losing streak and maintained their chances of survival. A win would ensure that they finish in the bottom 3 at the very least, forcing them to play in a two-legged relegation playoff with the second-tier playoff winners. However, one point would only be sufficient to move them out of the bottom three if Stuttgart lost to Hoffenheim and Schalke 04 lost to RB Leipzig away from home.
Bayer 04 Leverkusen could have secured a place in Europe weeks ago, but a significant decline in form has caused them to leave it down to the final day of the season. After a 2-2 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend, they have gone 6 games without a victory across all competitions. Leverkusen must therefore match or surpass Wolfsburg’s performance against already-relegated Hertha in their own stadium this weekend in order to keep the Wolves at bay and maintain their position in the 6th spot. Should they fail to do so, they must depend on RB Leipzig winning their 2nd straight German domestic cup in order to play in the Europa Conference League the following season.
