Schalke 04 knew they had second place wrapped up in the Bundesliga, but that didn’t mean they wanted to end the season on a bad note.
The hosts edged Eintracht Frankfurt 1-0 at home in Saturday’s finale, with Weston McKennie shining in midfield. The 19-year-old American started and played the full 90 minutes for Domenico Tedesco’s side. McKennie was a lively force all over the midfield for Schalke, causing problems for Frankfurt’s holding midfielders. His 40 completed passes was the most by any Schalke player in the win, pairing with the talented Leon Goretzka. McKennie finished the season with 25 appearances for Schalke in all competitions, and surely will be riding high with his team finishing as league runners-up.
Theoson-Jordon Siebatcheu helped Stade Reims to a draw in Ligue 2 play with a goal while Maki Tall came off the bench for Tours. Christian Pulisic played the full 90 minutes for Borussia Dortmund, but his side fell 3-1 at Hoffenheim. John Brooks got an important 90 minutes under his belt as Wolfsburg now prepare for a playoff draw against Holstein Kiel. Julian Green netted a crucial goal for Greuther Furth in their draw, as they fought off relegation and remained in the second tier of German football.
Elsewhere, Bobby Wood was sent off as Hamburg suffered relegation for the first time in their history. Romain Gall continued his strong run of form with an assist in Sundsvall’s win in Sweden. Jonathan Amon bagged an assist in Danish Superliagen play with Nordsjaelland. Tim Ream started for Fulham but the London club fell in their first leg playoff at Derby County. Andrija Novakovich scored but it wasn’t enough as Telstar lost 6-5 on aggregate in their promotion playoff draw.
