The stadium in Gijon is perhaps best known as the scene of "the shame of Gijon" when West Germany and Austria managed to conspire to finish 1-0 and eliminate Algeria

after that the final group games were always played at the same time

West Germany versus Austria was a 1982 FIFA World Cup game played at the El Molinón stadium, Gijón, Spain, on 25 June 1982.

In German, it is known as Nichtangriffspakt von Gijón (lit. Non-aggression pact of Gijón)[1] or Schande von Gijón (lit. Disgrace of Gijón), while in Algeria it is known as the Anschluss.[2]

The match was the last game of the first-round Group 2, with Algeria and Chile having played the day before. With the outcome of that match already decided, a win by one or two goals for West Germany would result in both them and Austria qualifying at the expense of Algeria, which had beaten West Germany in the first game. After 10 minutes, West Germany took the lead. Thereafter, neither team scored, and few scoring chances were created. Onlookers noted that both teams played as though they were content with the result, giving the impression of them having an unspoken agreement to play for a 1–0 German win.

In the second group stage of the previous World Cup in 1978, the Austrians, despite having already been eliminated, had made great efforts to beat West Germany 3–2 in a match known as the Miracle of Cordoba, which deprived the Germans of a berth in the Third Place match. The two teams were considered to be fierce rivals. However, as the 1982 match did not live up to these expectations and was widely perceived to be fixed, many observers were strongly critical of the teams' performances.
