Borussia Dortmund 3-2 SV Werder Bremen

Borussia Dortmund players celebrate
Borussia Dortmund finished as runners-up in the Bundesliga last season

Borussia Dortmund secured a place in the Europa League with a victory over Werder Bremen in Jurgen Klopp's final home game in charge.

Klopp, 47, announced he would leave the Bundesliga club last month and his last game in charge will be next weekend's German Cup final with Wolfsburg.

Shinji Kagawa and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put Dortmund two up but Levin Oztunali pulled one back.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan made it 3-1 before Theodor Gebre Selassie's late goal.

With Wolfsburg having already qualified for the Champions League, Dortmund's seventh-placed finish means they have secured the Europa League spot awarded for the German Cup irrespective of whether they win or lose in the final.

Elsewhere, Augsburg also confirmed their place in the Europa League with a 3-1 win at Borussia Monchengladbach, while Bundesliga runners-up Wolfsburg played out a 2-2 draw with Cologne.

Third-placed Bayer Leverkusen ended their season with a 2-1 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt as Hoffenheim finished ninth after a 2-1 win over Hertha Berlin.
