There wasn't much space left on the scoreboard at the Olympiastadion in Munich after Dieter Hoeneß's scoring frenzy on 25 February 1984. Having let his strike partner Karl-Heinz Rummenigge score the opening goal in the Bundesliga game at home to Eintracht Braunschweig, the forward let rip himself.

The younger brother of the club's current president fired in five goals within 21 minutes between the 68th and 89th minute, bringing about the 6-0 scoreline almost single-handedly. For a long time he retained the record for the fastest five-goal haul in Bundesliga history, until one of his successors, Robert Lewandowski, broke it in September 2015 with his five goals against Wolfsburg.
