FDGB Cup 1973/74

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the 1973/74 soccer season , the FDGB soccer cup was played for the 23rd time .

After a qualifying round with six GDR league players , the first main round was started with 15 district cup winners, 55 teams from the second-rate GDR league and the two league relegated teams from the 1972/73 season. Up to and including the second main round, the games were played in the simple cup mode, if necessary the games were extended or decided by penalty shoot-outs . From the round of 16 up to and including the semi-finals, the winners were determined in the first and second legs.

The 14 teams of the league intervened in the second main round in the cup competition. There were no longer any district cup winners. With the exception of Sachsenring Zwickau (1: 2 at Lok Dresden ), all the first division clubs made it through. In addition to Lok Dresden, Dynamo Dresden II and Vorwärts Stralsund also made it to the round of 16 via pure GDR league duels, but only Dynamo II survived the round-trip rule with an overall result of 6: 5 over Hansa Rostock . Last year's finalist 1. FC Lok Leipzig also did not survive the round of 16.

Dynamo Dresden was represented by two teams in the quarter-finals. However, the second team did not make it through the Energie Cottbus hurdle , and the cup defender 1. FC Magdeburg also retired after two 2-0 defeats against BFC Dynamo . In the semifinals there was a dynamo duel between Berlin and Dresden, which the Saxons won. After a 7-1 victory over Energie Cottbus, FC Carl Zeiss Jena also made it into the final.

Course of the game

Jena's team captain Peter Ducke with the FDGB cup

The 23rd final for the FDGB Cup closed the 1973/74 football season. The second, FC Carl Zeiss Jena, and the third of the championship, Dynamo Dresden, faced each other. In addition to the new title holder 1. FC Magdeburg, both teams were among the strongest teams with their numerous national players.

Dynamo Dresden clearly determined the action in the first half. Jena had built up a densely staggered defense, but the Dresdeners responded with attacks from a distance. After several unsuccessful shots on goal by Wätzlich, Riedel, Kotte and Libero Dörner, the Dresden attacks led to success in the 27th minute. Häfner picked up a diagonal pass from Kreische, dribbled a few more steps and then shot with his right foot into the Jena gate. Until the break whistle, the Dresden midfield row dominated their Jena opponents at will, the Jena strikers Ducke and Vogel did not get a chance.

After the break, a completely reverse game developed. Dresden only wanted to manage the 1-0 lead, practically stopped its attacking efforts. In midfield now dominated the Jena Irmscher and Schlutter, whose precise passes now brought the strikers into promising positions. The decisive factor in the game was the substitution of the ineffective Jenaer Vogel by Stein, which put even more pressure on the team. As a result, Schlutter equalized eight minutes later, who played von Stein after skilful dribbling and was able to steer the ball into the goal in front of Helm.

Until the end of the regular season, the Dresden team were able to hold back, and the game also swayed back and forth in the first half of extra time. Kreische, Irmscher, Heidler and Kotte had the renewed opening goal on the foot. This finally fell in the 115th minute for Jena. Schumann, one of the youngest on the field, fought for the ball, played around three Dresden players and also overcame the Dresden goalkeeper. Only two minutes later, FC Carl Zeiss hit SG Dynamo Dresden with the final knockout blow. After a wonderful series of diagonal passes between Schlutter and Irmscher, the unprotected Libero Bransch was able to score 3: 1 with a left-footed shot.

The coaches commented on the game as follows ( according to Deutsches Sportecho, April 16, 1974 ):

Hans Meyer, FC Carl Zeiss Jena - “The 0: 1 gave us psychological problems. A completely different team came out of the locker room after half time. We just had more to add. "
Walter Fritzsch, Dynamo Dresden - “The game was on the knife edge. In the end, Jena had a little more to put on the scales and deserved to win. But it was also due to the fact that we couldn't extend our good initial phase over the entire season. "
