Intercontinental /Toyota Cup-Part Four (1983, Gremio vs. SV Hamburg)

The 1983 Edition of the Intercontinental Cup was the fourth in its ‘permanent’ home in Tokyo.
The participating teams were West Germany’s SV Hamburg and Brazil’s Gremio.
SV Hamburg had won the Champions Cup by defeating Juventus (1-0) on May 25th, 1983 in Athens.
Grêmio had won the Copa Libertadoes in July. They had defeated the defending Champions, Uruguay’s Peñarol Montevideo, on July 28th, 1983 (2-1) after a (1-1) tie at Montevideo on July 22nd.

Ernst Happel’s Hamburg were led by veterans such as Manfred Kaltz and Felix Magath and also included a host of new West German Internationals such as goalkeeper Uli Stein and Wolfgang Rolff.
SV Hamburg had lost their Captain and goalscoring threat Horst Hrubesch and Danish forward Lars Bastrup over the summer.
In their place, they had brought in Dieter Schatzschneider and Wolfram Wuttke.
However, their inability to integrate had been the main topic of conversation and had affected Hamburg’s form.
As far as this match Schatzschneider remained in West Germany along with Manfred Kaltz as they were both sidelined with injuries.
Michael Schroeder and Danish striker Allan Hansen would replace the duo in the lineup.
Gremio, managed Valdir Espinosa, were captained by the Uruguayan defender Hugo De Leon. The squad included a number of Brazil National Team veterans such as Paulo Cesar (star from the 70s) and Mario Sergio.
The new star on the rise was young striker Renato Gaucho who would go on and mark his stamp on this match.
It had been a long tiring trip for Hamburg, but Happel was nevertheless confident of their chances. He believed the South American domination at Tokyo (three straight years) was bound to end.
Gremio skipper De Leon was also not dismissive of Hamburg’s quality. Despite the absences of Kaltz and Schatzschneider, De Leon felt the task would be difficult since this was a team that had defeated the mighty Juventus.
The encounter took place on December 11th at Tokyo.
It would turn out to be a quality match later confirmed by both Managers.
It would also be the first encounter in its new location of Tokyo to go into overtime.
Gremio took the lead in the 38th minute with a memorable goal by Renato.
He received the ball on the right side and feigned back and forth to confuse his marker Holger Hieronymus before scoring with a low shot from a narrow angle.

Gremio seemed headed for a win, until Hamburg struck the equalizer with five minutes remaining.
Magath took a free kick from the left side to the far right post for Ditmar Jakobs.
Jakobs headed the ball across to an unmarked Michael Schroeder, who trapped and struck home the tying goal.

The match went into overtime, and Gremio took the lead just three minutes after the re-start.
Tarciso’s cross from the left side was headed across to Renato who scored his second and winning goal.
Afterwards Hamburg went all out for an equalizer but Mazarópi held firm and Gremio were Champions.

Gremio would have to wait until 1995 to make another appearance in this event (losing to Ajax), while Hamburg has continued on its downward spiral since and has thus far been unable to reach the same heights of its glory years of the early 80s.
Due to his two-goal display, Renato Gaucho was named man of the match and took home the prize (a Toyota Car).
For the fourth time in a row, Tokyo remained an elusive place to win for the European competitors.
