Feyenoord-Olympique Marseille 1999

When you go through bad times, you automatically think back to better times. Fortunately there for Feyenoord supporters have been better times. In late 1999, met Feyenoord Olympique Marseille in the second round of the Champions League, which was at that time still played in groups. An early red card for Kees van Miracles Legion was furious and a big race relaxed.

The Legion has long been seen as the “twelfth man” of Feyenoord Selection. The race number twelve is therefore never forgive a player, but remains assigned to the fanatical fans. The Legion “is accompanied by two capitals, supporters are mainly due to their often amazing support. That support was also 5 December 1999. The French star ensemble of Olympique Marseille came to visit in Rotterdam Kuip. It was the second game of the second round of the Champions League, the first game lost the Rotterdam Chelsea at Stamford Bridge 3-1. to stay in the race for the quarter-finals had the second game won. Obviously it was not at all; including French internationals Robert Pires, Christophe Dugarry, William Gallas and Marcel Desailly were an impressive team versus team of Leo Beenhakker.

Vitor Melo Pereira

The Legion was still unlikely, or jump back because of a strange decision by the Portuguese referee Vitor Melo Pereira. Defender Kees van miracle took striker Florian Maurice lightly in the arm, but the referee interpreted it as defeating a broken game and pulled the red card. Feyenoord could therefore still more than eighty minutes with ten men for a tough decision.
Of course, the decision wrongly considered particularly at De Kuip. But the anger was converted into energy to scream team really forward. The massive cry was picked up by the team and a great combative Feyenoord managed to get rest without further damage. The French team led by Bernard Casoni had their chances, but the target was not hit. Bert Control Letterman was after the departure of Kees van Miracle undisputed leader in Rotterdam rearguard and performed this task with fervor.

Ultimate Joy

During the first fifteen minutes of the second half, did the French not find the net and slowly urged everyone to realize that there really was something to gain. That feeling was only reinforced when Yannick Fischer received his second yellow card for a tackle on Jan de Visser. Suddenly it was ten against ten and Legion anointed his feet again to support the team once again. As a full-grown lion roared, the team was repeatedly shouted forward. And with success. From a free kick by Jean-Paul van Gastel Bonaventure Kalou combined with Captain Paul Bosvelt. Kalou picked up a few meters and managed to put the ball wide to striker Julio Cruz. With a chipped ball is visited by more than twenty meters Cruz managed to poke the ball past Stéphane Porato 1-0. The fifty heads inaugural Legion struck massively a primal scream ultimate joy: the unjust and fast red card was washed down with a wonderful goal.
The urge to attack was not yet disappeared. The disillusioned French conceded the goal in the 71st minute and seven minutes later they again shrink their chances for victory. This time, Sebastien Perez received his second yellow card Melo Pereira and number four from France soon got even manage a downer. With a brilliant backheel Cruz put this time Kalou completely stopped. His performance with links let vibrate the crossbar, but the recovery in diving Bosvelt headed the ball into the empty goal: 2-0. Again, a wave of joy in De Kuip; This can not go wrong!

Dessert

After 2-0 were 82 minutes on the clock and the last eight minutes to Feyenoord, with one man more on the pitch, just a matter of games. The desire to attack, however, remained in the team does the 3-0 still appeared on the scoreboard. The well-positioned Cruz was the second time the net of enemy targets to get balls and just before the field he means the final judgment at l’OM. Thanks to this victory Feyenoord struggled to the finals before the quarter-finals, but a 0-0 draw in the return match in Marseille was not enough to even reach the quarterfinals.Partly because of the stunning victory against the French in their own home, many Feyenoord were long dream of a quarterfinal place in the CL.
