Gladbach reaches Champions League, Düsseldorf relegated

    BERLIN (AP) — Borussia Monchengladbach qualified for the Champions League and Fortuna Dusseldorf was relegated by a single point on the last day of the Bundesliga on Saturday.

    Germany becomes the first major European league to complete a full season after restarting during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Gladbach secured its return to the Champions League for the first time since 2016-17 by beating Hertha Berlin 2-1 to finish fourth ahead of Bayer Leverkusen.

    Werder Bremen avoided automatic relegation in dramatic style by demolishing Cologne 6-1 to overtake Dusseldorf, which leaves the Bundesliga after two seasons after losing to Union Berlin 3-0.

    Playing its 1,900th Bundesliga game, Werder scored more goals on Saturday than in all of its other home games in 2020. Werder is not yet safe as it faces a two-leg playoff against a team from the second division for a place in the Bundesliga next season.

    Bayern Munich secured its eighth straight title two games earlier and finished with a 13-point advantage over Borussia Dortmund in second.
