Hamburg relegated from Bundesliga for first time

The only ever-present since the league was founded in 1963, "der Dino" went down fighting after 54 seasons by beating Borussia Moenchengladbach 2-1.

There were troubling scenes in the 90th minute of the match as police were forced to storm onto the pitch after one section of the home support let off a series of flares and fireworks, which engulfed the stand behind the goal in smoke, delaying the end of the game.

Most fans reacted with anger to the disturbances, chanting "We are the people of Hamburg and you're not!" and "Get them out!"

Hamburg have become the second team to be relegated from the Bundesliga, ending a record run of 55 straight seasons in the German top flight.

"We experienced miracles in the last years but miracles don't go on forever", Hamburg great Uwe Seeler said.

Hamburg were leading 2-1 in stoppage-time when referee Felix Brych stopped the game.
