VfL Bochum – Arminia Bielefeld 2: 1: Bielefeld flips on eighth Bundesliga relegation

Arminia Bielefeld staggers towards the eighth relegation from the Bundesliga. The table penultimate lost 1: 2 (1: 1) by promoted VfL Bochum, and after ten games in a row without a win, they must hope for support from the old and new champions Bayern Munich.

Should the record champion after his party trip to Ibiza on Sunday (17: 30 /DAZN) lose to VfB Stuttgart, East Westphalia could no longer be prevented from relegating to the second division before the season finale.

“We hope Bayern will give us some support. If we still have the chance next week, anything is still possible,” said Bielefeld midfielder Patrick Wimmer DAZN: “It was another solid battle performance today. But we lack efficiency. That’s why we are again without points.”

Captain Manuel Prietl added: “I am a bit speechless at the moment. We have big plans that would have paved the way for relegation. We keep the game open for a long time, come back into play with a set piece, but do not have enough power to push forward “It’s just bitter and disappointing. We are dependent on others now. We have to win, that’s the drop we have. In life, one must always see it through to the end until the last day of battle is over. We must all do it again to mobilize forces. “

Joakim Nilsson (35th) meanwhile equalized for Arminia to 1-1. But an own goal by George Bello (89th) closed out the 16th defeat. The deficit in Table-16. Stuttgart still has two points. Even a victory in the last match against RB Leipzig would only be enough if VfB went empty handed. Due to the Bielefeld defeat, it is also clear that Hertha BSC can no longer move down directly.

Sebastian Polter (22nd) had put the already saved Bochum in the lead. One week after the 4-3 triumph of Borussia Dortmund and the lavish celebration of staying up, VfL said goodbye to eleven players whose contracts expired before kick-off.

“I’m sure one or the other who gets a bouquet of flowers today will also play here next season,” said sporting director Sebastian Schindzielorz DAZN: “Negotiations are underway.”
