From the Dortmund defense, the Schalke Marius Bülter was unstoppable in his goal to the interim 1:1 at 2:2 in the district derby against BVB on Saturday. Only a camera arm brought the 29-year-old down.
After a submission by Michael Frey, Bülter scored the equalizer from close range in the 50th minute and equalized Dortmund's 0-1 lead goal by Nico Schlotterbeck (38th): "It wasn't the nicest thing," he said afterwards about his goal, "it was a relatively easy goal. But it's a nice feeling to score in the derby." It was already the third goal of the winger in the last three games.
When turning off to cheer, the Schalke striker then stumbled: A camera pole brought him down: "Of course, I was also surprised that the thing is there." Bülter still tried to jump over the pole, which hung next to the Dortmund goal as an obstacle in the way, but did not quite make it. "I solved it well and intercepted it well," he said after the thrilling district derby against BVB on the TV channel Sky and was able to laugh about himself and the scene: "That looks funny, of course".
For a long time, the Gelsenkirchener could not be happy about the equalizer. Raphael Guerreiro (60th) brought the guests back into the lead with a remarkable shot into the corner. The recently substituted Kenan Karaman (79.) equalized again, so that the Schalke could finally celebrate a point win.
And Bülter was pleased that the curious incident had no consequences for him: "Luckily, I didn't hurt myself cheering when I collided with the camera arm."
