Stuttgart qualified for the quarter-finals of the German Football Cup, after defeating Paderborn 2-1 during the match that brought them together today, Tuesday, which witnessed a strange goal.
Paderborn finished the first half ahead with a clean goal scored by Konstantinos Mavropanos, the Stuttgart player, by mistake in his own goal in the fourth minute.
Mavropanos returned the ball to his goalkeeper from a far area, but the goalkeeper was unable to catch the ball that landed in his net in a funny scene.
Oh dear, oh dear 🙈
