Berlin – FC Augsburg’s 1-0 win over Mergim Berisha’s Borussia Mönchengladbach marked the end of the first half’s 501st goal of the season. According to the league, this mark was last exceeded in the 1985/86 season. In the first half of the 1991/92 season there were also more than 500 goals. But since there were 20 teams in the league at the time, the first half of the season only ended after 19 matchdays. dpa
