Hamburg were relegated from the Bundesliga for the first time in their history Saturday, as a 2-1 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach proved too little too late. A proud run of 55 season in Germany's top flight came to an ugly end as Hamburg fans set off a flurry of fireworks, releasing a cloud of black smoke across the Volksparkstadion, forcing play to be suspended just minutes from time.The day started disastrously for Hamburg, as Josuha Guilavogui fired Wolfsburg ahead in the opening minute against Cologne.Minutes later, Robin Knoche headed in Wolfsburg's third, and when Josip Brekalo added a fourth in stoppage time, Hamburg's fate was sealed.At the other end of the table, Hoffenheim pipped Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig to a Champions League place next season as they beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 to third place.
