SG Dynamo Dresden, one of Germany’s most tradition-laden clubs, will compete in Bundesliga 2 next season after a 2-2 draw at 1. FC Magdeburg means they are guaranteed to finish in the top two of Germany’s third division.

After missing the chance to go up last weekend due to a 0-0 draw against Holstein Kiel, Dresden were two goals down after the hour-mark at Magdeburg. Uwe Neuhaus’ side rallied, however, and secured the point they needed when Justin Eilers’ 20th goal of the season made it 2-2 in the 67th minute.

The Eastern club - who reached the UEFA Cup semi-finals in 1989 as one of the GDR’s leading sides - last participated in the second tier in the 2013/14 season, but were relegated after finishing in 17th place.
