The man who fired Bayern to the European Cup final for the f

FC Bayern were just one win away from the greatest achievement in their history when they hosted Hungary’s Ujpesti Dozsa at the Olympiastadion in the second leg of the European Cup semi-final on 24 April 1974. The tie was evenly poised at 1-1 from the first game as FCB sought a first-ever appearance in the final.

“Mr. European Cup” strikes

Conny Torstensson broke the deadlock in the 35th minute as Bayern went on to win 3-0 thanks to an own goal from Jozsef Horvath (70’) and a strike from Gerd Müller (80’). They were through to the final. Swede Torstensson was essentially the ‘man of the semi-final’ considering he’d also put the Reds a goal up in Hungary. The conclusion of the story is well known as Bayern climbed Europe’s summit for the first time a few weeks later and Torstensson earned himself the nickname “Mr. European Cup”. In an interview with fcbayern.com, he reminisces about those times.

Torstensson was the ‘man of the semi-finals’ against the Hungarians.
