Hamburg were relegated Saturday after 55 consecutive seasons in the Bundesliga after Wolfsburg beat already-relegated Cologne 4-1.

Hamburg, who needed Wolfsburg to lose to have any chance of surviving, were beating Borussia Moenchengladbach 2-1 at home when supporters threw flares onto the pitch and the match was halted while police regained order.
