It's in the records of the founding date Bayern Munich was the 27 September 1900, making it one of the classic European teams. During years, also, He managed to keep the legend that made him invincible when playing against a Spanish team at the Olympic Stadium in Munich Living. It was not until the beginning of the century when a small Galician team showed up to play against the all-powerful German. With all odds against, but from confidence in their chances, tactical discipline and creative savvy men and Juan Carlos Valeron, Fran Y Makaay, the Deportivo La Coruna was able to take the win Y, also, scoring three times in the goal titan Kahn, one of the best goalkeepers in history.

Seven minutes later, at 64, a corner had the fear of heart swollen deportivista: Elber He is scoring just after the corner to tie the game.

In this situation, Depor that today we lost in the bottom of the second division classification, suffering a hobby is watching Celta Vigo, the eternal rival, Galicia, bearing marks the headlines, although in recent 6 meetings He has only managed to take 6 points, I would have had little to do, In addition to lowering arms; but it 17 years the thing was quite different and Irureta able to react in time and breathe historic ambition and sense his team. Entry Joan Capdevila was enough for the Depor regained ground and to give Valerón the need to return to space taken out of the hat, umpteenth, other pass impossible the smell of Makaay sent to the back of the net. Nor we would find today the delivery and claw to resist and keep the result in the final minutes, just because 15 minutes have elapsed since the third goal of Depor until beep confirming the victory of the Whites they were eternal.
