Seven Days: Friday, 15 May 2009

In a League Two play-off semifinal second leg, Leeds United were held 1-1 at home by Millwall.   Millwall go through to the final 2-1 on aggregate.   The second leg of the other semifinal between Milton Keynes Dons and Scunthorpe United is to be played tonight.  The first leg in Scunthorpe ended 1-1.

SAFFC beat Balestier Khalsa 3-1 last night at Choa Chu Kang Stadium to go back ahead of Gombak United on goal difference.

Albirex Niigata take on Geylang United at the Jalan Besar Stadium tonight. Who’d watch?

With less than a week to go before the end of the group stage of the Indian Premier League (cricket), Delhi Daredevils now lead the table.  Rajasthan Royals, who won the group stage last year before going on to claim the title, are now up to third.   The two sides meet on Sunday.

In France, leaders Marseille are at home to third placed Lyon on Sunday.

In Germany, Bayern Munich have appointed ex-Ajax and Barcelona boss Louis van Gaal as their new coach.

    DPMM play Young Lions in Brunei tonight. DPMM will close to within 2 points of SAFFC and Gombak United if they win, but will remain third regardless of the outcome.

    In the Bundesliga:

    • Hannover 96 0 VfL Wolfsburg 5
    • TSG Hoffenheim 2 Bayern Munich 2
    • VfB Stuttgart 2 Energie Cottbus 0
    • Hertha Berlin 0 Shalk 04 0

    A draw in their final game of the season next Saturday at home to Werder Bremen should suffice for Wolfsburg to take the title. If Wolfsburg lose, then either Bayern or Stuttgart could go above Wolfsburg with a win. The two sides meet in Munich next Saturday. If Wolfsburg draw and Bayern or Stuttgart win, it will come down to goal difference – Wolfsburg are on +35, Bayern on +28 and Stuttgart on +21 – Bayern would need to beat Stuttgart by at least 7 goals to have any chance.

    If Hertha win away at Karlsruhe next Saturday, they could go level on points with Wolfsburg at the top if Wolfsburg lose and Bayern and Stuttgart draw, but they have a vastly inferior goal difference.

    In France, Bordeaux go top with a 3-2 home win over Le Mans, at least until Marseille play later today.
