Soccer...and in West Germany, one of the most improved sides, Hertha BSC, were drawn against European champions Bayern Munich,in a quarterfinal of the West German Football Association Cup at the Olympic Stadium in West Berlin on Saturday (19 February).
SYNOPSIS: Bayern Munich, playing in the all-dark strip, kicked off in the first half against the Hertha club of West Berlin.
The visiting team played the better football in the fist half, and took the lead when their number 11, Kapellmann scored after a corner in the sixth minute.
However, the home side raised their game in the second half, and after one of their players was fouled in the penalty area, Granitza levelled the score.
The score was still level at the end of normal time, so the two teams had to play extra time. Bayern again took the lead when Hertha conceded a corner and Weiss scored.
Hertha, however, were not deterred and they continued to attack the Bayern goal. Gradually they began to dominate the game.
Cheered on by their home crowd, Hertha drew level with Bayern when Granitza scored again in the 100th minute of the match.
And it was Granitza who gave Hertha the lead for the first time when he completed his hattrick just eight minutes later.
Shortly before the end, Gersdorff of Hertha scored their fourth goal to complete a memorable win and make the final score Hertha, four; Bayern Munich, two.
