The 2022/23 season is almost history, only one thing has to be clarified in terms of the Bundesliga: Will VfB Stuttgart remain in Germany’s top division, or can HSV rise from the 2nd Bundesliga? All information about the relegation and its 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. Then things really get going for two teams: VfB Stuttgart and HSV have to play in the relegation.
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, which has been in force for years and was used in abundance in the past, 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.
