Video of the week: Bayern Munich player Niklas Süle produces ridiculous own goal

Bayern Munich has sealed the title in the German Bundesliga for the approximately 643th time in a row. After a 4:1 away win in the Bavarian derby against Augsburg, Bayern secured their 28th championship in early April already. One has to admit: their dominance in their own country’s football is thoroughly impressive.

But the football universe is used to see Bayern celebrate titles way before the season ends. So, what actually stays in mind from last weekend’s game in Augsburg is the hilarious own goal produced by Bayern’s young defender Niklas Süle to give Augsburg an early 1:0 lead.

It was an own goal that actually makes you feel sorry for the 22-year old, who now actually has become the youngest Bundesliga player to ever have scored three own goals with 22 years, 7 months and 6 days.

Not only this inglorious record should awake our pity for Süle, but, even more, the fact that the own goal was absolutely not his fault after all. And that’s what makes this goal so brilliantly hilarious, too.

This slapstick-goal started out with his teammate, Jerome Boateng, losing the ball due to a horrific stoppage error, resulting in an Augsburg attacker being able to have a one on one with Bayern’s keeper Ulreich, who then was actually able to clear the ball away. However, as you’ll probably be able to imagine by now, the ball goes straight into Süle’s face and from there it finds the back of the net. Ouch.

See for yourself: Süle’s own goal against Augsburg (from 01:35 onwards)

At least he’ll have the silverware soon to chill his face a bit after that hit.

A Commentator’s nightmare lineup in the Primera Division (Wednesday Shortlist #17)

Imagine being a commentator in Spain. You’d get to work at stadiums like the Santiago Bernabeu or the Camp Nou. But on the downside you’d have to deal with many, many silly names. Honestly: Shoutout to all the spanish commentators broadcasting a 10pm game between Bilbao and Sociedad without mispronouncing 200 names per game!

Here’s my selection of the most difficult player names in La Liga: Good luck to any TV-comentator trying to pronounce all of these these correctly…

Note: Basically, the entire list could only consist of Athletic Bilbao Players, so I left them out. That’s why there might be missing a few “obvious” ones. (Seriously, I wouldn’t want to work in their fan-shop and mess up 50 prints on shirts per day…)

Goal:

Kepa Arrizabalaga (Athletic Bilbao – he’s the exception of the rule only for that striking first name for a keeper.)
