Cologne - There was absolutely no danger whatsoever of the final day of the 2014/15 Bundesliga campaign falling flat on Saturday afternoon. looks back on the major talking points to emerge from a particularly soul-stirring occasion in the league of the world champions...

FC Bayern München ensured they couldn't be caught at the top of the table back on Matchday 30, but they had to wait until full-time on the final day of the season to get their hands on the prize. Pep Guardiola's men went out on a high in more ways than one, bringing an end to a three-game winless league run with a 2-0 victory over 1. FSV Mainz 05, before the long-awaited festivities - beer showers et al - took centre stage to the backdrop of a sold-out Allianz Arena.

Further north, the Borussia Dortmund faithful could be heard for miles around at the Signal Iduna Park as Jürgen Klopp stepped out in front of the famous Yellow Wall for one last time. Everyone played their part in making it a send-off befitting a BVB legend as Dortmund recorded a 3-2 win over SV Werder Bremen to book their place in the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Europa League, having dragged themselves up from the bottom two since the turn of the year. They can still win the DFB Cup next week, too.

VfB Stuttgart spent much of 2015 in the automatic relegation places, but they travelled to bottom club SC Paderborn 07 with their destiny in their own hands. Despite falling behind to an early goal that - had the hosts held on - would have sent VfB down, the Swabians hit back through Daniel Didavi and Daniel Ginczek to wrap up the three points that keep them safe for another year. Plucky Paderborn were, however, relegated for their troubles along with SC Freiburg.

That's because the Bundesliga's one and only ever-present club Hamburger SV - second from bottom at the start of play - defied the odds by beating FC Schalke 04 2-0 at the Imtech Arena. It wasn't enough for outright safety owing to Stuttgart's efforts at the Benteler Arena, but the Red Shorts at least have the opportunity to preserve their precious record of having never been relegated from the top flight in the play-offs, where they'll face Karlsruher SC.

FC Augsburg made their own piece of history by qualifying for European competition for the first time courtesy of a 3-1 win over ten-man Borussia Mönchengladbach. Markus Weinzierl's men fell behind to a first-half strike from Raffael, but once news filtered through that Schalke were trailing at Hamburg, the Bavarians went up a gear. Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg, Tim Matavz and Sascha Mölders scored the goals and fifth place - direct entry into the Europa League no less - was theirs.
