Bundesliga relegation: Which ‘top-flight sides will go down’ this season?



The resumption of the Bundesliga has certainly lifted spirits across the football world. But for those hovering around the relegation zone, it’s certainly a nervy time.

At the top, it’s never been closer. Bayern Munich lead the way by just four points, with Borussia Dortmund doing their utmost to decrease the gap.

At the bottom, several sides remain in threat of relegation. The break may have come at a good time for some, but many outfits will be wary of just how precarious their position in the table currently is.

SC Paderborn sit rock bottom on 17 points. They’ve won just four games all season, but restarted well with a vital point last weekend. 

However, that came in a goalless draw with Fortuna Dusseldorf, who are also in danger of the drop.

They sit third from bottom on 23 points, five ahead of Werder Bremen, who are second from bottom.

In a hugely disappointing season, Bremen have also won just four league games this campaign. They suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen on Monday.

The 4-1 loss will not have been good for confidence as they head to Freiburg on Saturday.

Both on 27 points, Mainz and Augsburg occupy the 15th and 14th spots respectively. And just one point ahead of them sit Frankfurt.

It’s currently 1/16 for Paderborn to remain where they are and suffer from relegation. Bremen are available at 4/9, with Dusseldorf currently 4/6.

Mainz have been given odds of 6/1 to go down at the end of the campaign.

Augsburg are currently 10/1, while Frankfurt are available at 33/1.

Berlin outfits Union and Hertha are available at 33/1 and 250/1 respectively to be dragged into a relegation scrap. They met on Friday night, with the latter easing to a 4-0 victory.

Also this weekend, Paderborn have a difficult clash with Hoffenheim, while Dusseldorf visit Cologne.

Mainz and Augsburg undoubtedly have the toughest fixtures this weekend for sides in the bottom five. They meet RB Leipzig and Schalke respectively on Sunday.

Those at the head of the top-flight may not be interested in such affairs, but those leading the way in 2. Bundesliga may just have one eye on who is going down.

That’s because they will be replacing those who suffer the dreaded feat.

Arminia Bielefeld sit first, seven points clear of both Hamburg and Stuttgart. FC Heidenheim aren’t far behind on 41.

Bielefeld can be backed at 4/7 to go up, with Stuttgart 4/1 to return to the top-flight.

Hamburg can be backed at 9/2, with Heidenheim currently 40/1.
