Only one record is left to beat, the attendance from the semi-final in 1987 against Bordeaux in the European Cup Winners' Cup. The official attendance was 73 000 fans, but more than 120 000 fans actually attended this match. This semi-final was played at the famous Zentralstadion, which sadly closed in year 2000.
