Goalkeeper Robin Zentner of Mainz 05 made a funny ball handle during a match on Borussia-Park stadium of Monchengladbach. This match belonged to the round 11 of Bungdesliga 2017/18.
Mainz 05 had an away match to Monchengladbach on the round 11 Bundesliga and quickly opened the score in the 19th minute of the match thanks to an exact header of Dialo.
Having the privilege of opening the score, Mainz 05 proactively played on the home pitch side and waited for a fault from the opponent. However, while the host team of Borussia-Park had been yet making any faults, Mainz 05 was close to pay its price for an unexplainable ball handle of goalkeeper Zentner.
In the 31st of the match, a defender of Mainz 05 dribbled the ball towards Robin Zentner – the young Mainz 05’s defender who was born in 1994. Having enough time and suitable space, Zentner totally had the possibility to handle the ball and make a wise decision.
However, Zentner made an unexplainable handle, just like he fell into sleep for a second while the pitch was still happening. Zentner kicked his feet into the air when the ball had approached the goal slowly.
It was really lucky for Mainz 05 as Lars Stindl’s ball dribble speed was not fast enough to make Mainz 05 end up with a lose. This thrilling situation shocked every Mainz fan and went viral on the first page of many sports, football magazines after then.
During the rest of this play, not only Mainz 05 could score any more goal but also had to end up with a draw in the 67th minute because of a Vestergaard’s header. With this draw, Mainz 05 could not come up through the ranks in the final list.
