Do not forget to get your vote in for the first of two centre backs to make it onto our Team of the Season. Our all-conquering XI is already starting to take shape, and it is up to you to mould it for us.

19:35 More Leipzig celebrations

A few eyebrows were raised when Davie Selke took a step down from the Bundesliga last summer by leaving SV Werder Bremen to join Leipzig. His absence from the top flight has lasted just one year, though, and the big question now is whether he will face his former club in the Bundesliga next season. In the meantime, here he is leading Leipzig's promotion celebrations.

And If you happen to be in the vicinity of Leipzig at 21:45CEST, the promotion celebrations are set to continue above the club's stadium, and presumably visible from quite a distance too.
