Schalke 04 was relegated from the Bundesliga for the first time in 33 years on Tuesday.

The last player, where Klaas-Jan Huntelaar plays, lost 1-0 to competitor Arminia Bielefeld.

With Huntelaar in the base, Schalke barely got any chances against Biefeleld.

The home team scored shortly after the break via Fabian Klos and thus sealed the fate of Schalke, who ended the game with ten men by a red card (twice yellow) for Malick Thiaw.

Schalke is in last place with only thirteen points after thirty rounds of play.

In the remaining four matches, the team can no longer end up in the safe fifteenth or sixteenth place, which means participation in the play-offs.

This season, Schalke experienced an unprecedented sporting crisis.

The club only won the competition twice and fired no fewer than four trainers.

Due to the relegation next season, Schalke is active in the Second Bundesliga for the first time since 1991.

Huntelaar exchanged Ajax for Schalke in the winter break and thus returned to the club where he was very successful between 2010 and 2017.

The 37-year-old striker would stop professional football after this season, but recently hinted at a longer stay with Schalke.

Bayern takes the next giant step to title

Bayern Munich took the next giant step to the ninth national title in a row on Tuesday.

The leader himself won 2-0 against Bayer Leverkusen and saw close pursuer RB Leipzig surprisingly lose 2-1 against low flyer 1. FC Köln earlier in the evening.

Bayern, where Robert Lewandowski was still missing due to an injury, got off to an energetic start against Leverkusen and was already 2-0 ahead of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Joshua Kimmich within fifteen minutes.

Leipzig, where Justin Kluivert came in, was 1-0 behind by Jonas Hector shortly after the break.

The visitors equalized after an hour thanks to Amadou Haidara, but a minute later it became 2-1 again via Hector.

Bayern increased the lead over Leipzig to no less than ten points.

A trainer change may take place for both teams next summer.

Hans-Dieter Flick wants to leave Bayern and Julian Nagelsmann from Leipzig is mentioned as his possible successor.

Eintracht Frankfurt did good business in the battle for a place in the top four and with it a ticket for the Champions League.

The new number three was 2-0 too strong for FC Augsburg thanks to Martin Hinteregger and André Silva.
