Being paired up with the early favourites of the European Cup, Dundee welcomed the West German Champions FC Cologne to Dens Park as we looked set to tussle with the crème de le crème of top European teams.
With ten West German internationalists in their team and labelled early favourites to win the cup, this looked like a daunting task for The Dee.
However, when the full-time whistle was blown, it was the Germans who were shell-shocked after the Dark Blues had blasted eight past them.
We can maybe take into consideration that the German keeper was knocked out only a few minutes into the game and he only lasted until half-time when he failed to return to the field. Back in those days, there weren’t any substitutes so Cologne had to play the reminder of the game with only ten
Our goals came from Alan Gilzean (who bagged a hat-trick), Bobby Wishart, Hugh Robertson, Gordon Smith and Andy Penman. Our first goal was scored by Matthias Hemmersbach, who headed the ball into his own net.
