Hamburg - AOL Arena
A view of the AOL Arena in Hamburg

West Germany famously lost in Hamburg during the 1974 World Cup finals to their cross-border rivals East Germany.

The venue for the 1-0 defeat - the Volksparkstadion - is no more, having been replaced by the AOL Arena.

The old ground was razed in four stages and the pitch rotated in a two-year project that was completed in 2000.

The 55,000 capacity for Hamburg SV home games will be reduced due to standing restrictions for the five scheduled games, including one quarter-final.
