  • Description

    BAYERN MUNICH, OF WEST GERMANY, BEAT GLASGOW RANGERS OF SCOTLAND ONE GOAL TO NIL IN THE FINAL OF THE EUROPEAN CUP WINNERS CUP AT NUREMBERG IN WEST GERMANY TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY). THE WINNING GOAL GAME 13 MINUTES FROM THE END OF EXTRA TIME.

    THANKS TO THE GOAL, BAYERN MUNICH KEPT THE EUROPEAN CUP WINNERS CUP IN WEST GERMANY FOR THE SECOND YEAR RUNNING.

    THERE WAS NO SCORE AFTER 90 MINUTES, AND THE STALEMATE HAD NOT BEEN BROKEN BY HALF-TIME OF EXTRA TIME. THEN FRANZ ROTH ENDED THE DEADLOCK WITH A SHOT FROM 10 YARDS (METRES) OUT.

    THE FACT THAT THE ONLY GOAL OF THE MATCH CAME AFTER 107 MINUTES OF PLAYING TIME WAS A TRIBUTE TO THE DEFENDERS OF BOTH TEAMS. RANGERS STARTED NERVOUSLY AND HAD A CLOSE SHAVE IN THE FOURTH MINUTE BUT FOR MOST OF THE FIRST HALF, RANGERS SEEMED TO BE ON TOP WITH A NUMBER OF SHOTS GOING CLOSE.

    RANGERS' DEFENCE WAS OUTSTANDING, BUT THE FORWARD-LINE RARELY CLICKED INTO A SMOOTHLY OPERATING UNIT. OUTSTANDING FOR BAYERN WERE SEPP MAIER IN GOAL, AND FELLOW INTERNATIONAL FRANZ BECKENBAUER.

    A CROWD OF 70,000, INCLUDING SOME 5,000 FROM SCOTLAND, PACKED THE STADIUM TO SEE THE MATCH, WHICH WAS ENTERTAINING, BUT NEVER REACHED CLASSIC STANDARDS. BUT THE RESULT DELIGHTED THE WEST GERMANS, WHO SWARMED ON TO THE PITCH AND BESIEGED THE MUNICH PLAYERS A THE END OF THE MATCH.

    HEAVY RAIN HAD MADE CONDITIONS A LITTLE DIFFICULT, BUT THIS HAD STOPPED IN TIME FOR THE KICK-OFF.
