Missed out by four mins – Stuttgart German champions in 92

Borussia are in mourning. Right up until the 86th minute of the final day of the Bundesliga season it seemed that the Black n Yellows were going to end their 29 year wait for the German championship. But then a Guido Buchwald goal for VfB in their game against Leverkusen (resulting in a 2-1 win for VfB) turned BVB dreams to dust. The 30,000 BVB fans assembled on the Friedensplatz to watch the game against Duisburg were struck dumb. Having anticipated celebrating a championship win, they now had second place to, er, celebrate. So how did it come to this climax? Going into the 34th and final day BVB (in Duisburg), VfB Stuttgart (in Leverkusen) and Eintracht Frankfurt (in Rostock) all had a chance to win the title. Frankfurt suffered a defeat and so it was down to the other two to decide the destination of the title. A goal from Chapuisat gave BVB the lead after 10 minutes and they stayed ahead in their game from that point on. Meanwhile, with Bayer 04 in the lead against VfB the Friedensplatz was optimistic, but then the equaliser in Leverkusen came on 41 minutes and then the winner. So Stuttgart, with Eike Immel in goal, were 1992 Bundesliga champions.
