Hey Ralf,

I'm not sure if there's such a cool word (noun) as "Spitzenduell" in English, but I think one option is:

battle/matchup between/of (the) top two/two of the best teams

http://www.news1130.com/sports/article/ ... -two-teams (ice hockey)

http://www.laurierathletics.com/createa ... hp?ID=5715 (indoor soccer)

Another cooler-sounding option is:

clash of the titans

Happy battles,

Hi Ralf,

I think yakyuyama is right – we don’t really have a single word for this.

What we do have is an expression that describes the end of the season where two (or more) teams could win the league and the pressure and nerves start to take play a role – it’s called ‘squeaky bum time’ :) – is there a German expression for this?

Hi DaveP,

Squeaky bum time? That's hilarious. There's no way that would go over well here in the US. I take it you're British? Anyone know of a similar expression used in Australia?

Take it easy,

Hi Ralf & 89rules

British, yes. The expression was coined (I think) by Alex Fergusson, the Manchester United manager, a few years ago.

I was wondering if there was a German equivalent (I’m assuming it wouldn’t be a direct translation :)
