When the match began,Borussia Moenchengladbach held their own as Bayern captain and international star Karl-Heinz Rummenigge narrowly missed scoring with a diving header. Then, in the 33rd minute, Frank Mills put them ahead with a powerful header from a corner. Bayern's equalizer came 50 minutes later as a goalmouth scramble gave Wolfgang Bremmler his chance with a powerful kick. The eventual penalty shoot-out began with Lothar Matthaeus of Borussia Moenchengladbach kicking the ball over the bar. Soeren Lorby scored first for Bayern, but Kai-Erik Herlousen equalised. Each team continued to score, and with the points at 3-3, Moenchengladbach goalkeeper Ulrich Sude stopped a shot from Klaus Augenthaler and Wilfred Hannes scored to put Moenchengladbach 4-3 ahead. But they failed to capitalise, allowing Karl-Heinz Rummenigge to bring Bayern back up to 4-4.
