Match start: 20:30 (GMT+1)
Prior to 3 rounds the German season will end Bayern München once again and for the first time under the supervision of Carlo Ancelotti became the Champion of Bundesliga. And that is now (with due respect to German grand) it is not recommended to bet Bayern München during the 3 left matches of the season. As no one knows what the squad will be and more than that what mood will the champion have during these insignificant matches.
But we will really enjoy the match between Köln and Werder on Friday.
UEFA and Bundesliga regulations
But first of all let us revise the rules of qualification of the German best clubs to Euro Cups. Now the country of the current World Champions are represented by 4 best clubs in the Champions League and 3 clubs including the new owner of the national Cup in the Europa League.
And here the most interesting thing appears! As the number of finalists of DFB-Pokal-2017 includes one of the future participants of the Champions League – Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt that is falling lower and lower with each round.
Two challengers for three berths
So, what do we have? If the DFB-Pokal will be won by the team of Thomas Tuchel and this variant is more probable so the 7th final place will let the team enter the Europa League. But if finally Eintracht Frankfurt will ‘shoot”, in this case in new Europa League championship will play two more teams that had taken final 5 and 6 places. And here are these teams”
5. Hertha, Berliner – 46
6. Werder – 45
7. Freiburg – 44
8. Köln – 42
9. Borussia m – 42 …
And now let summarize all that was mentioned above! No team even Hertha, Berliner gained the right to participate in the next Europa League tournament.
And out of two rivals that will meet on Friday it is Werder that has some advantage (3 points). That means that the guests will be pleased with goalless draw. In this case Werder will keep its 3 points handicap over one of the main rivals.
