Roy Makaay's 10.12 second goal against Madrid

Postby FCBayernNews » Mon Mar 09, 2020 7:10 pm

The referee blows, Madrid kick-off - and then this: “The ball went to Gago, he played it to Roberto Carlos and he lost control. Salihamidžić intercepted and before we knew it, it was in the net.”

That's Roy Makaay, remembering his opening goal in the Champions League first knockout round second leg tie against Real Madrid on 7 March 2007. The Dutchman, who celebrated his 45th birthday on Monday 9 March, scored after just 10.12 seconds and is still the fastest Champions League goalscorer in history. The 'goal phantom' buried Hasan Salihamidžić’s cross with his right foot into the lower left corner to net an extremely important goal.

Makaay strikes Bayern towards the quarterfinals

Two weeks earlier, Bayern had lost the first leg at Estadio Bernabeu 3-2. The tension in the Allianz Arena was high and the 66,000 spectators hoped for a quick start from FCB - Makaay definitely gave them that.

In the end, the Munich side won the game 2-1 (Lucio also scored) and advanced to the quarter-finals on the away goals rule. “It's nice that people remember me with this record,” said Makaay looking back fondly at his lightning strike.

The goal was only possible because Hasan Salihamidžić was on the ball from the first second:

Would have thought Pato vs Barca would make that list. Apparently it’s sixth.

I have a pretty funny story related to that tie, although more to the first leg. At the time I could rarely watch any Bayern games so I remember logging into uefa.com the morning after, before school and seeing a 3-2 loss. Because people at the time were always telling me about how important away goals are my immediate reaction was “yup, we’re definitely through” and then I remember telling everyone Real messed up and now there is no way they will eliminate us because we have two away goals haha... and then of course it only took 10 seconds into the second game to get in a position of qualifying.

The thing is an away loss vs Real is not exactly a good result no matter how many away goals you get. My conviction at the time was more due to not quite understanding how the away rule works probably.
