Saturday, 3.30 p.m. | TIME ONLINE

No soccer this weekend. Maybe not soccer for a long time. Fortunately, the Internet is full of it. Many games are even available in full length. We have selected the eleven most beautiful of them. So that the soccer-free time doesn’t get too hard.

Borussia Mönchengladbach – Borussia Dortmund 12: 0

April 29, 1978, Düsseldorf Rheinstadion, 34th matchday

Maybe not for BVB fans. Still the highest victory in Bundesliga history. Before the last matchday of the 1977/78 season Gladbach was tied for second with the rival from Cologne, but both teams separated ten goals, actually impossible to catch up. Actually. The 1-0 fell in the first minute through Jupp Heynckes, the first of his five goals, and it continued happily. At the end it was 12: 0, no further goal would have fit on the scoreboard. Several BVB players refused to be substituted. For Gladbach it was just not enough for the title because Cologne also won his game 5-0. Dortmund coach Otto Rehhagel at that time had to live with the name Otto Torhagel for a while. Maybe that’s why he later became a defensive fetishist.

SpVgg Unterhaching – Bayer Leverkusen 2-0

May 20, 2000, Unterhaching Sports Park, matchday 34

In this game the myth “Vice Kusen” was born. Bayer Leverkusen had a three point lead over FC Bayern. A draw against the promoted from Unterhaching would have been enough for the first championship. Michael Ballack, however, grabbed a ball into his own goal, Markus Oberleitner got the 2-0 for the slightly better village club, who doesn’t know him? At the same time, Bayern won their home game against Bremen and won the championship again. Christoph Daum was cold, again. Leverkusen even managed to finish second in the league, cup and Champions League two years later. The vice triple.

Hansa Rostock – Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1

May 16, 1992, Rostock Baltic Stadium, 34th matchday

Alfons Berg. This name is enough to get an entire city upset. Alfons Berg was the referee in the last season game of this so gifted Frankfurt team around Uwe Bein and Anthony Yeboah. It was 1: 1, Eintracht needed a win for the first Bundesliga championship in club history when Ralf Weber was fouled in the Rostock penalty area. Everyone saw that in the stadium, except Alfons Berg. After the game, Berg was shown the scene on TV and he said: “Yes, I should have whistled, it was a clear penalty, I feel sorry for the harmony.” That didn’t help the Frankfurters either. The Rostock trauma was born. Stuttgart became champion. Eintracht never came as close to the championship as it did that day.

FC Schalke 04 – Energie Cottbus 3: 0

April 13, 2003, Arena AufSchalke, matchday 28

Nothing special, a normal Bundesliga game. And maybe that’s why it is so suitable for this collection, because normality is what you sometimes need. Long live normality! Long live: Frank Rost, Tomasz Hajto, Nico van Kerckhoven, Tomasz Wałdoch, Jörg Böhme, Sven Kmetsch, Sérgio da Silva Pinto, Gustavo Varela, Victor Agali, Emile Mpenza, André Lenz, Vragel da Silva, Gregg Berhalter, Marco Gebhardt, Moussa Latoundji, Zsolt Lőw, Laurențiu-Aurelian Reghecampf, Timo Rost, Silvio Schröter, Marko Topić and Robert Vágner.

Bayer Uerdingen – Dynamo Dresden 7: 3

March 19, 1986, Grotenburg in Krefeld, European Cup Winners’ Cup, quarter-final second leg

It doesn’t just have to be Bundesliga, other football competitions also had dramatic games. For example, Dynamo won the first leg of this east-west duel 2-0. And at the latest after the 3-1 half-time lead, not only the Dresdeners were sure that not much would happen that evening. Even many Uerdingen fans had already left the stadium. But then Wolfgang Funkel and colleagues came and turned the game into a game that went down in history as the “miracle of the Grotenburg”. Five goals in just over 30 minutes, Uerdingen made it to the semi-finals. A game with consequences, by the way: Dresden’s left wing Frank Lippmann used the trip to flee to the west. That is also why Dresden coach Klaus Sammer was later released from his duties.

England 1-3 Germany

April 29, 1972, Wembley in London, European Championship quarter-finals

The first victory of a German national team in England. Perhaps a DFB team has never been so good again Soccer played. It was mainly Günter Netzer’s game, 99 ball actions, 64 successful passes. The London correspondent for the FAZ, Karl Heinz Bohrer, coined the phrase for this game: “Netzer came from the depth of the room.” The goals in the Wembley Stadium were made by Uli Hoeneß, Günter Netzer and Gerd Müller. Later the eleven also became European champion, two years later even world champion.
