They can still be purchased as print@home or mobile tickets in the online ticket shop up until half time of the game, while tickets will also be available at the gates from 13:30 CEST. The Bitburger beer garden opens at 11:30 CEST. 
  • Drinks cups are being collected in the stadium as part fund-raising initiative from “Nordkurve Aktiv”. The deposit from any cups handed in will go to the Borussia Foundation, with proceeds to be used to help people affected by the war in Ukraine.

Head-to-head record

  • Saturday’s season finale will be the 28th meeting between TSG and Borussia in the top flight. The Kraichgau club edge the head-to-head record, winning nine of the 27 clashes to date. The Foals have seven wins, while eleven match-ups have ended in a draw.
  • Both sides have remained in the top flight since being promoted together in 2008. Only four teams are currently on longer uninterrupted spells in the Bundesliga: Bayern, Dortmund, Leverkusen and Wolfsburg.
  • Hoffenheim have lost just one of their last eight Bundesliga games against Gladbach (3-0 at home on 28th September 2019). However, each of the last five meetings have ended in a draw.
  • Nico Elvedi (red card) and Munas Dabbur (5 yellows) are two of the just three players across the Bundesliga who will miss matchday 34 through suspension.

Statistics

  • Borussia have lost just one of the last eight Bundesliga games (3-1 vs. Köln), collecting 15 points during that run. There have been four wins (2-0 vs. Hertha, Bochum and Fürth, 3-1 vs Leipzig) and three draws (1-1 vs. Mainz and Frankfurt, 3-3 vs. Freiburg).
  • The Foals will finish this Bundesliga season in the bottom half of the table for the first time in eleven years. The goal in the season finale is to defend tenth place. Three other teams could still finish there: Bochum (11th, also 42 points, away vs. Union), Frankfurt (12th, 41 points, away vs. Mainz) and Wolfsburg (13th, 41 points, home vs. Bayern).
