On gameweek 34, the final round of the Bundesliga season, there is still a lot of permutation and combination hanging in the air.

Bayern Munich might have already wrapped up the title on game week 32, but there are still things to be decided on either end of the table in the upcoming final matchday.

The race for the final UEFA Champions League spot is still on, with Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen fighting for a top-four finish.

Victory would guarantee Monchengladbach’s return to the Champions League after three long years, while a draw against Hertha Berlin, will also possibly confirm them the fourth spot, bearing in mind that Bayer Leverkusen has to beat FSV Mainz by nine goals to nil.

While on the other end of the table, with Paderborn already relegated, 17th-place Werder Bremen are fighting for their lives to replace Fortuna Dusseldorf at the 16th place, to provide them the safety net of a playoff against the third-place team from Bundesliga 2.

So, without further ado, let’s have a look at what the Bundesliga has in store for us on the final matchday of the season.

Borussia Dortmund vs TSG Hoffenheim (Prediction 2-2)

Borussia Dortmund, who have clinched the runners-up spot, will prepare to host seventh-placed TSG Hoffenheim at the Signal Iduna Park on Saturday.

Although the current 20-point-gap suggests a mismatch on paper, football fans will be in for a treat, given the attacking brand of football both sides like to offer.

Hoffenheim won the reverse fixture with a 2-1 scoreline back in December last year, courtesy of second-half strikes from Sargis Adamyan and Andrej Kamarich.

Die Kraichgauer would surely like to complete a league double against BVB on Saturday.

Bayer Leverkusen vs FSV Mainz (Prediction 2-0)

Fifth-placed Bayer Leverkusen would definitely like to keep their hopes for a top-four finish alive, as they welcome the 13th-placed Mainz on Saturday.

Die Werkself have only themselves to blame to face such circumstances after failing to latch onto the opportunities provided by others.

Known as the carnival club of Germany, FSV Mainz have nothing to lose on Saturday’s encounter, given the current situation of the Bundesliga table. But they would surely like to sign off their season on a high by beating Leverkusen.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Hertha BSC (Prediction 1-0)

In another high-profile Bundesliga encounter, Borussia Monchengladbach await Hertha BSC at Borussia-Park on Saturday.

Monchengladbach just cannot afford to lose the game, with Leverkusen breathing down their neck in order to secure a top-four finish.

Hertha will have the tough task of keeping Monchengladbach’s attackers at bay, given their leaky defensive organization, which has conceded a total of 57 league goals this season.

VfL Wolfsburg vs Bayern Munich (Prediction 0-3)

League champions Bayern Munich will travel to the northern part of Germany on Saturday to face Vfl Wolfsburg, who are currently in sixth-place.

On the other hand, Bayern Munich will be trying to finish their Bundesliga campaign with 13 straight wins in a row. The Bavarians are clear favourites to pick up all three points against Wolfsburg.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs SC Paderborn (Prediction 4-0)

Ninth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt will host already-relegated SC Paderborn at the Commerzbank-Arena on Saturday in the final round of Bundesliga fixtures.  

With the wind in their sail, Frankfurt will be looking to end their Bundesliga season with a win against bottom-placed Paderborn.

Werder Bremen vs FC Köln (Prediction 1-1)

Werder Bremen have the stern task of picking all the three points and keeping their Bundesliga journey alive when they face FC Köln on Saturday.

After enduring a disastrous campaign, Werder Bremen are currently occupying the 17th spot, and are on the brink of relegation.

14th-placed FC Köln, who have also endured a difficult season as they struggled for consistency, are winless in their last six Bundesliga outings.

SC Freiburg vs FC Schalke (Prediction 2-0)

FC Schalke will travel to southeast Germany to face SC Freiburg on Saturday.

David Wagner’s men, who have lost four of their last six Bundesliga matches, will be hoping for a turn in fortunes on at the weekend.

On the other hand, Freiburg will head into the fixture on the back of a 1-3 defeat against Bayern Munich in gameweek 33. Christian Streich’s men will surely like to get back to the winning ways and finish their campaign on a high.

FC Augsburg vs RB Leipzig (Prediction 0-3)

RB Leipzig are expected to have the upper hand when they face FC Ausburg on Saturday at the Augsburg Arena.

Leipzig, who are currently sitting third on the Bundesliga table, would surely love to finish their campaign with a big win against 15th-placed Augsburg.

For Heiko Herrlich’s men, it seems more of a matter of pride than anything else, having lost the reverse fixture 1-3 back in December.

Union Berlin vs Fortuna Dusseldorf (Prediction 1-1)

12th-placed Union Berlin will take on 16th-placed Dusseldorf on Saturday.

Berlin will head into the game on the back of a 0-4 hammering against Hoffenheim last week.

On the other hand, Dusseldorf’s Bundesliga fate is still in their own hands, and a win on Saturday will guarantee them a 16th-place finish, which will make them eligible for a play-off against the third-placed side Bundesliga 2.
