Bundesliga Bundesliga 2


Hamburger SV and FC Bayern Munich first met one another in the Bundesliga in the 1965/66 season. This particular game from March 1971 stands out, however, <br>as Bayern's young Gerd Müller (m.), who would go on to be the Bundesliga's record goalscorer, struck four times in a 6-2 thrashing of the Red Shorts <i>Der Bomber</i> was at it again the following season, this time scoring twice against the northerners in a 4-3 victory that helped Bayern seal the first of three consecutive Bundesliga tiltes. The German international seemed to save his best form for HSV, scoring a sensational 31 times in 30 appearances against them Hamburg did manage to get their own back on Bayern in the years to come, though, most famously in this game from April 1977. Bayern goalkeeper Sepp <br>Maier (foreground) looks on in disbelief as HSV's Willi Reimann (arm raised) scores the second goal in an eventual 5-0 thrashing over the Bavarians If the early 1970's had been a fruitful time for Bayern, the later part of the decade would be so for HSV, due in large part to the arrival of English star Kevin <br>Keegan (2. l.), here being congratulated by Bayern's Paul Breitner. The Reds actually won this game from June 1979, but the tilte had already been sewn up by HSV Even after the departure of 'Mighty Mouse', as Keegan was affectionately known, HSV continued to compete with Bayern. In this classic from April 1982, Hamburg, <br>with future Bundesliga coach Felix Magth (l.) in their side, won a thrilling game 4-3 in Munich's Olympiastadion, going on to lift the second of three league titles The Bavarians were never far behind them, however. In 1987/88, Bayern got their own back for the defeat four seasons earlier by thumping <br>Hamburg 6-0, with Michael Rummenigge, younger brother of current FC Bayern Chief Executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, netting a brace Clashes between Bayern and Hamburg always tended to produce goals and this encounter from the 1998/99 season was no different. Bayern emerged on <br>top to edge a 5-3 victory thanks to goals from Steffen Effenberg (3. l) and Giovane Elber (4. r), while Ghanaian striker Anthony Yeboah (r.) was on target for HSV This particular game from 19 May 2001 didn't turn out to be one of the high-scoring classics like those from yesteryear, but it remains possibly <br>the most dramatic match ever played between Hamburg and Bayern and a date etched permanently into the psyche of Bayern supporters Bayern needed just a point to secure the Bundesliga title, but their day looked to be turning into <br>one of disappointment as Sergei Barbarez fired HSV in front in the 90th minute... ...only for the absolutely unbelieveable to happen, as Bayern defender Patrik Andersson smashed in a free-kick <br>with the very last kick of the game to seal a 1-1 draw and give the club their 16th Bundesliga crown It was a day that is remembered by football fans all over Germany as the day that FC Schalke 04 lost the title. The Royal Blues had effectively <br>been champions for four minutes, until Andersson's late strike snatched a very first Bundesliga title away from them and left Bayern euphoric Back at Hamburg, the mid-2000s heralded a new era for the club with the signing of Dutch superstar Rafael van der Vaart from AFC Ajax. The mercurial talent scored <br>nine times in his debut season for the Red Shorts, including in this game against the Bavarians from September 2005, which ended in a 2-0 home win fo HSV The latter half of the decade continued to be a successful spell for the club in this particular fixture. Mladen Petric was the next man to write his name <br>into Hamburg folklore, netting the winning goal in consecutive home matches against the Bavarians, including in this encounter from January 2009 Yet the very recent past is dominated unequivocally by Bayern, here celebrating a hat-trick from Arjen Robben (m.) in a 6-0 win in March 2011. <br>The Reds have also scored a combined 13 times in just their last three meetings with HSV, and will be looking to add to that tally on Saturday evening
