On the day that Bundesliga Schalke 04 took its last chance, FSV Mainz 05 did excellent business in the fight against degradation. Thanks to Jean-Paul Boëtius, an attack of number 1, Köln was rejected.
1. FC Köln-FSV Mainz 05 2-3Germanys number 14 got ahead of Köln thanks to a distance call from Boëtius. The number seventeen had to win the number fourteen and put everything on the attack. This resulted in a 2-1 lead after a rake penalty from Ondrej Duda and a second hit by Ellyes Skhiri. Mainz, however, had the last word: Karim Onisiwo slipped into the 2-2 and Leandro Barreiro even completed the party in the last minute. Mainz is now five points apart from Köln and two points ahead in 16th place, which entitles you to playoffs.

Anderlecht-Club Brugge 2-1The Dutch tinted Club Brugge lost the squatter against Anderlecht just before the end of the regular Jupiler Pro League season. Ruud Vormer and Bas Dost started in the base and after rest were joined by Noa Lang, who, after a beautiful solo, opened the score: 0-1.
