Course of the game
For the 29th final of the FDGB Cup, the favorite position was clearly specified, the championship third FC Carl Zeiss Jena met FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt, who had just escaped relegation in the past championship in 12th place. In addition, there were six current national players in the Jena team as well as Eberhard Vogel with the experience of 74 international matches. The only thing the red-whites had to counter this was to be able to play free from the relegation stress of the last few weeks and as an outsider. The Erfurt-based company initially took on this role with great promise. They put away two great chances from Schnuphase and Vogel in the first few minutes and, for their part, started quick forays into the Jena half with Heun, Romstedt and Fritz. In addition, they could rely on the safe goalkeeper Benkert, who thwarted further Jena opportunities between the 31st and 34th minute. At this stage it seemed as if the Zeiss townspeople were gaining the upper hand. But a surprising counterattack rewarded the courageous demeanor of the flower townspeople. In the 40th minute Fritz from Erfurt sprinted into a combination between Lindemann and Vogel from Jena, played around two Jena defenders and shot towards the opposing goal. Grapenthin was still able to fend off, but in the margin, left wing Romstedt brought the ball over the line.
After the break, both teams increased the pace of the game, and with Manfred Vogel and Heun Erfurt had two good chances to increase to 2-0 right after the restart. For a good half an hour, FC Carl Zeiss was in danger of losing the game due to the multiple counterattacks by Erfurt, but then the Erfurt leaders had to pay tribute to their long journeys. When Hans Meyer brought in two new players with Töpfer and Sengewald in the 60th and 70th minutes, the game tipped in favor of Jena. From the defense, Jena increased the pressure with Kurbjuweit and Schnuphase, and the substituted potter could hardly be stopped by the Erfurt defense. Consequently, the equalizer fell in the 81st minute when Schilling won a header duel against Romstedt, Töpfer was able to cross from the left in front of the goal and center forward Raab put the ball under the crossbar with a sharp shot.
With the psychologically important equalizer, both teams had to go into overtime. Erfurt was nervous and weak and fell behind after just four minutes due to a free-kick rebound from Kurbjuweit. When Erfurt goalkeeper Benkert could not parry a shot from Sengewald after another three minutes, the game was decided in favor of the Jena favorite.
The two coaches commented on the game:
“I think it was a great final. It was fair, not dogged and, above all, fully offensive. The many chances on both sides prove that. ”(Hans Meyer, Jena)
“ When we didn't take advantage of our huge chances to make it 2-0, Jena did better. In the end the favorite had more to add. "(Manfred Pfeifer, Erfurt)
