It was the happiest of returns to Berlin for SV Darmstadt 98 striker Sandro Wagner on Matchday 33 as he scored the goal that not only secured victory, but also his club's top-flight future.

With the scores level at 1-1, Jerome Gondorf did superbly to get to the byline, but could only pull a hopeful cross back into the box. Enter Wagner, who got in front of his marker and cleverly turned the ball past the helpless Rune Jarstein in the Hertha Berlin goal with just eight minutes remaining.
