West Ham United can still hope that it will play in the Champions League for the first time next season.

The number five of the Premier League beat Burnley 1-2 on Monday.

In Germany, Hertha BSC drew against FSV Mainz in its first match in almost a month: 1-1.

Mikhail Antonio was the big man at Burnley-West Ham.

The visitors' striker, who made his return after a month of injury, turned a 1-0 deficit with two goals into a 1-2 victory for West Ham.

Chris Wood gave Burnley the lead from a penalty kick in the nineteenth minute.

Within half an hour, Antonio made his eighth and ninth league goal of the season, good for West Ham's seventeenth victory this year.

The team of manager David Moyes remains three points from number four Chelsea, which beat Fulham on Saturday (2-0).

The top four in England will receive a Champions League ticket.

West Bromwich Albion-Wolverhampton Wanderers finished 1-1.

Number nineteen West Brom is ten points behind with four matches to go on the 'safe' seventeenth place of Newcastle United and is therefore almost certain of relegation.

Nice hit Mainz at the first make-up duel Hertha

In the Bundesliga, Hertha resumed its fight against relegation after a long break.

The entire selection of Deyovaisio Zeefuik's club had to be quarantined last month, after trainer Pál Dárdai, assistant Admir Hamzagic, attacker Dodi Lukebakio and defender Marvin Plattenhardt were tested positive for the corona virus.

Three league matches of the team from Berlin had to be postponed, so Hertha played his first game since April 10 on a visit to Mainz on Monday.

Lucas Tousart put Dárdai's side, who were back on the bench, in the 36th minute in the Opel Arena, but Mainz equalized four minutes later.

The Austrian Philipp Mwene shot the ball from about 22 meters into the intersection in a very nice way.

Mainz has the most to the point.

The team of basic players Jean-Paul Boëtius and Jeremiah St. Juste is twelfth with six points ahead of number sixteen 1. FC Köln and with three matches to play it is almost certain of enforcement.

Hertha is seventeenth with two points less than Köln, and two games less.

The number seventeen relegates directly from the Bundesliga together with the last player Schalke 04, while the number sixteen has to play a play-off for enforcement.


Phillipp Mwene's goal is as beautiful as it is important! 😍
