Date, dates, broadcast on TV and live stream



Last year, HSV and Hertha BSC faced each other in the relegation to the first Bundesliga.  The Berliners won the overall duel with 2:1 goals.

The Bundesliga season 2022/23 is slowly but surely moving towards the hot phase. High time to take a look at the relegation games. All information about the date, the dates as well as the broadcast on TV and live stream can be found here.

After 34 match days, the end of the season has not yet come – on the contrary. For two teams, that’s when things really get going. We are of course talking about the two teams that meet in the relegation duel.

Since the 2008/09 season, the third-best team in the 1st Bundesliga and the third-best team in the 2nd Bundesliga have faced each other at the end of the regular season.

After two games, in which each team was allowed to play one home game, it is clear who will complete the first or second division in the following season. From now on, the overall winner of the duel is first class, the loser second class.

The relegation games this year even come with a special change: the away goals rule that has been in force for years and has been used in large numbers in recent years has been abolished. If both teams have scored the same number of goals after two 90-minute periods – regardless of the stadium in which they were scored – the duel goes into extra time and possibly even penalties.
