After visiting 2 games on Saturday, I had the chance to visit 3 on Sunday in Germany. The 2nd stop was at Rheydter SV, who were hosting SVG Grevenbroich in their beautiful RSV Stadion. The ground was built in 1922 and could hold 40.000 spectators. In 1978 Borussia Mönchengladbach hosted Fortuna Düsseldorf in front of 27.000 fans.

Today's game was absolutely nothing special but the ground is that kind of ground where you can keep looking at. It also looked like as if the groundsman had been drinking early as the halfway line and sidelines were quite wavy.

The home team took the lead in the 1st half and had a very easy afternoon. Rene Schnitzler (ex St. Pauli, Bor. Monchengladbach, B. Leverkusen) caused trouble the entire afternoon and scored a beautiful goal; 7-1 final score.

This beautiful ground and very kind club (with great Bratwurst!) is absolutely worth the visit. Also very easy to combine with Borussia Monchengladbach II, who are playing next to this ground.
