The next-to-last weekend in the German top-flight could be crucial to determine European competition spots and could end the relegation battle.

The final two weeks of action in the Bundesliga are here, and with the kind of matches we will have on our hands this weekend, we could see the full list of teams that will play in European competitions next season, while also getting to know the clubs that will have lost the relegation battle.

Bayer Leverkusen have secured the title, but Bayern and Stuttgart keep their fight to secure the runner-up spot. The way things have gone during the season, even RB Leipzig could end the campaign in second place, but the aforementioned clubs would need to lose both their games and the Red Bulls would necessarily have to win both. The final UCL spot would go to Borussia Dortmund, who will only be able to climb to fourth if they can win both their games.

As for the battle to avoid relegation, things seem to be a bit clearer, since Köln need to win both their games and see Union Berlin and Mainz losing both their games. The Billy Goats could do wonders for their cause with their match against Berlin, one of the top games to keep an eye on this weekend. Darmstadt are already relegated to the 2. Bundesliga, leaving only one spot for direct relegation and the option to survive via a playoff.

Without further ado, here's what to keep in mind ahead of this weekend's matches.

Top games to watch 

Augsburg vs Stuttgart - A crucial game for Stuttgart will get things started this weekend, as the white and red visit Augsburg, who have lost four out of their last five. Stuttgart will get to this game two points behind Bayern, and if they can secure that second spot, it will mark their best Bundesliga finish since their 2006-07 title run. As for the hosts, the team led by Jess Thorup could still make it to Europe, but they need a lot of permutations to see that happening next week.

RB Leipzig vs Werder Bremen - The Red Bulls want to finish the season with a bang, even if they lost two points last week. Now, two wins in their last two games would see them fighting for the second spot if Bayern and Stuttgart drop the ball, and this game against Werder Bremen would be the right place to start. The away side will not have an easy match on Saturday, as the Green-Whites have not been able to defeat Leipzig since May 2019.

Bayern vs Wolfsburg - After what will be a trophyless season, Bayern need to redeem themselves by at least securing the runner-up spot. Bayern's recent games in both the league and the Champions League have ended in defeat, and a third here would be devastating. Luckily for for Tuchel's men, they are unbeaten in their last 19 matches against Wolfsburg, who are four points away from European competition spots.
