Deserved party

The game was a minor matter, even if Freiburg probably needed a goal last to enter the Champions League, but the results on the other places changed quickly. Thus, after the outstanding long-range shot by Palacios in the 97th minute and the 2-1 home victory, the Werkself remains in 3rd place, Freiburg ends the season in 6th place, but may still play in the cup final against Leipzig next week.

The party after the game remains in the memory. The outgoing Rudi Völler climbed over the fence of the North Stand to the fans after the final whistle and addressed his word to the fans. "What was going on here in the stadium today, just terrific," he said - before intoning the Uffta with the supporters. Thank you Rudi for 28 years under the Bayer cross. And thanks also to Baumi for six years of service to the Werkself. You were an important part of the squad.

The Werkself is now off to Mexico for a PR and marketing tour - that's the way it has to be. For the national players, there are still a few international matches to come. I'm looking forward to the next season and the start with the 1st Cup round on the last weekend in July.

But before the season really comes to an end for me, there is still the niemalsmeister review of the 2021/22 season forecast this week.
