Fonte Nova Arena played host to two big routs in this World Cup, delighting many football fans. Netherlands - on Spain for 5-1 - and Germany - over Portugal by 4-0 -, have made the arena surpass two stadiums of the South Africa World on number of times that the nets rocked.
The "lucky" stadium needed only two games to overcome two stadiums in the African country: the Mbombela, which was scene of nine goals in the last edition, and the Peter Mokaba, where had only five goals.
The arena's feat becomes even greater since the goals had left only in the first two matches, while the Africans have hosted four matches each in the past to get those results.
There still will be four duels at Fonte Nova, which can go beyond the Cape Town in Africa, stadium with more goals in 2010, where were scored 22. Considering the goal average until now, it already gone (check below).
On the next Friday (20), at 16pm, Switzerland and France are entitled to keep the Arena's high scoring. Otherwise, spectators expect to watch a match a little more fair than the previous two.
