VIDEO: Is This The Most Unfortunate Own-Goal Ever From The Bundesliga?

We recently brought you the unfortunate OG scored by Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini during their 2-2 draw with Swansea City at the Emirates.

But we think this one might just top it…

The bizarre incident took place during Saturday’s Bundesliga match between Mainz 05 and FC Augsburg at the Coface Arena with the home side eventually running out 3-0 winners in the end.

After tipping the ball on to the post with a save from a shot just inside the 18-yard box, Augsburg keeper Marwin Hitz soon found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time – in direct line of an attempted clearance from team-mate Matthias Ostrzolek.

The ball cannons off of the goalkeepers face and rebounds in to his own net, leaving both players lying flat out on the pitch in disbelief.

The result sees Mainz move five points ahead of Augsburg in the Bundesliga table as both sides continue to chase for a Europa League spot come the end of the season.
