Bundesliga Table

Magic Numbers



Domestic Competition

The club that finishes at the top of the table after all clubs have played all their matches are crowned Bundesliga Champions.

A system of promotion and relegation exists between Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga:

  • The bottom two placed Bundesliga clubs are relegated, and swap places with the top two 2. Bundesliga clubs.
  • The third-from-bottom placed Bundesliga club plays the third-placed 2. Bundesliga club in a two-legged playoff, with the winner earning a spot in Bundesliga the following season, and the loser playing in 2. Bundesliga.

European Competition

UEFA coefficients are used to determine the number of clubs that qualify for the three major European Competitions: Champions League, Europa League and the Europa Conference League.

Germany ranks fourth for the 2021-22 season, granting them four sides in the Champions League, two sides in the Europa League, and one side in the Europa Conference League.

  • Champions League (Group stage)
    • Position 1, 2, 3, 4
  • Europa League (Group stage)
    • Position 5
    • DFB Cup winner* The DFB Cup winner, either SC Freiburg or RB Leipzig, has already qualified for Europe. Therefore, the Europa League spot will go to the 6th position Bundesliga team instead.
  • Europa Conference League
    • Position 6* The 6th position team has taken the DFB Cup winners spot in Europa League, meaning the Europa Conference League spot is given to the 7th position team instead.
