He leaned forward, left arm on left leg, right on right.

Then Lukas Hradecky looked for a moment and shook his head in disbelief.

Completely dismayed, he ran back to his goal, where the ball had landed seconds earlier - and had caused the strangest own goal of the year.

What happened?

It ran the 47th minute on Saturday afternoon.

Bayer Leverkusen, visiting Bielefeld, had the game under control and earned a 1-0 lead in the 27th minute against promoted Arminia Bielefeld through Leon Bailey.

Daley Sinkgraven, the defender of Leverkusen, had the ball.

Pressed by a Bielefeld man, the Dutchman opted for a back pass to Hradecky.

The ball did not come towards the Werkself goalkeeper at high speed, but it slipped over his foot, which is why he made an air hole when he tried to shoot it away.

The ball then spun into the goal.


"Shit feeling," said Hradecky after the game, but was already able to laugh again: "That will surely get a few clicks on YouTube."

The Bielefeld people cheered.

It was the equalization at the beginning of the second half, in which they wanted to forget their weak performance before the break.

They had no connection to the game and not a single shot on goal - they were not even responsible for the hit, but it was their account.

Bayer, who was briefly shocked after the strange goal, pushed for the winning goal.

Two minutes before the end, Aleksandar Dragovic finally made it 2-1.

“At the end of the day it doesn't matter who scores the goals.

The most important thing is always the team and the three points, "said the goalscorer. Sports director Simon Rolfes praised the team's fighting spirit:" It was important that we scored the winning goal with the last bit of strength. "
