Nurnberg survive play-off
The final Bundesliga table sent Nurnberg to the last-chance saloon that is the relegation play-off with Augsburg with the hope of retaining Bundesliga status for next season. Last Thursday, a late Christian Eigler goal gave Nurnberg a 1-0 lead from their home leg to take and, half an hour into the second leg, Ilkayi Gundogan doubled the lead. Augbsburg's hopes took a nosedive when Ibrahima Traore was sent off and Eric Choupo-Moting struck a second - third overall - from the penalty spot.
