In all 19 Bielefelder Bundesliga years, FC Bayern belonged to the opponents. Arminia lost two-thirds of their home games against the Munich, who again occurs on this Easter Sunday in Ostwestfalen. Twice the two teams were drawn there a draw, four times the guests left the stadium, which was called “Alm” until 2004. Who moved out the Bayern there literally the leather pants? A review.
3. October 1970. It starts with a 1: 0 victory. 26 500 spectators are witnesses over 50 years ago, when the research promoted Arminia receives the table seconds. “When we had lost our nervousness, everything ran as desired,” commented Bielefeld’s coach Egon Piechaczek after the closure – so the Arminias Uli at the time – until then the biggest triumph of club history, the Arminias Uli Braun after an hour by shot with the “wrong” left Foot against Sepp Maier secures. Franz Beckenbauer, Georg Schwarzenbeck and Uli Hoeneß are powerless. Also, the prevention of the young Paul Breitner through Bavaria-coach Udo Lattek helps nothing more.
12. March 1997. The constellation is the like over 26 years ago: Arminia is once again promoted, the Bayern are second. And the helmers, Basler, Matthew, Klinsmann and Co. experience a sensitive setback in the title race with Dortmund. The heroes are in the team of Bielefeld’s “Century Coach” Ernst Middendorp: Uli Stein in the Arminia-Tor preserves his “white vest”, his opposite Oliver Kahn, on the other hand, must swallow a double pack of the then Bielefelder Top Striker Stefan Kuntz. 2: 0! Most of the 22 512 spectators in the sold-out stadium are excited. At the end of the season, Arminia remains in it and Bayern will be mastered with Giovanni Trapattoni Master – including because the BVB later still loses 0: 2 in Bielefeld.
Kamper’s free kick brings the last home win against the Munich
13. February 2005. This time, Bayern come as a leader and will also be superior in May German Masters. In Bielefeld but let feathers. Massimilian Porcello and Delron Buckley bring Arminia to the winning road. As Bavaria’s Lucio shortens, Buckley again makes it clear – 3: 1, the rest is cheers.
16. September 2006. 26 601 fans are when the hosts triumphs at home over 15 years ago. Coach Thomas von Heesen first sees the leadership hit by Mark Van Bommel, Arminia-Torjäger Artur Wichniark equalized before the break. By fulminant free-kick for 2: 1, from 22 meters against the powerless Oliver Kahn, finally Jonas Kamper secures six minutes before the end three points for Bielefeld. “We have to fight” – with his “Denslin”, the Dane becomes an important figure in the second Long Bielefeld Bundesliga period from 2004 to 2009.
It is the for the time being the last victory over the FC Bayern for the Armin, which was expected to be truly historical before: March 10, 1979, the team in the Olympic Stadium wins sensationally with 4: 0. “Those were football greetings from Bielefeld,” says after the trainer Otto Rehhagel, but at the end of Arminia rises.
