UEFA Super Cup- Part Four (Anderlecht vs. Bayern Munich, 1976)

The fourth edition of the UEFA Super Cup took place in the Fall of 1976. Just like the previous year West Germany’s Bayern Munich as the winners of the Champions Cup were present. This time they had to face Belgian side Anderlecht.

Bayern Munich led by skipper Franz Beckenbauer had just won their third straight Champions Cup after defeating French side AS Saint Etienne (1-0) at Glasgow on May 12th, 1976.
The squad still contained the likes of Sepp Maier and Gerd Muller, but now also included rising International Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The Belgians of Anderlecht managed by Raymond Goethals were a talented side that included many Belgian Internationals and also a large contingent of Dutch players such as Arie Haan and Rensenbrink.
They had defeated England’s West Ham United (4-2) in the Final of the Cup Winners Cup on May 5th, 1976.
It was hard to determine a clear favorite, though Bayern Munich had in retrospect peaked while Anderlecht were younger and hungrier.

The first leg was played on August 17th, 1976 at Munich’s Olympiastadion.
In the first half, Bayern failed to exert their authority and most of their combinations did not work.
Anderlecht took the lead through Arie Haan in the 16th minute.
However, after the break Bayern picked up the tempo with Beckenbauer in commanding form.
Bayern tied the match through Gerd Muller in the 58th minute. Afterwards, they piled on the pressure and were rewarded just before the end from the dependable Muller to win the match with a slim lead (2-1).

The Second Leg took place at Brussels’ Parc Astrid on August 30th, 1976.
Bayern Munich and only had a one goal lead and the previous year’s loss at Kiev had exposed that they were very much for the taking on away soil.
Dettmar Cramer decided to start with Swedish defender Bjorn Andersson, replacing Rainer Kunkel from the first leg.
In the 20th minute, Anderlecht took the lead after Rensenbrink headed in a free kick taken by Erwin Van der Daele.
Five minutes later, Anderlecht doubled its lead. Rensenbrink sent a ball into the box that initially Sepp Maier appeared to have covered. However, it got past him and François Van der Elst took advantage to score.
Anderlecht scored the third after the break. In the 59th minute, from the left side Resenebrink sent Haan through to score. Bayern players protested for an offside decision but the goal stood.
Bayern pulled a goal back just minutes later in the 63rd minute. From the right side, Jupp Kappelmann sent a ball into the box and Gerd Muller pounced on it.
Anderlecht put the series beyond any doubt by scoring their fourth in the 82nd minute. Arie Haan sent a long cross into the box for Rensenbrink to score his personal second.
Anderlecht had deservedly won their first Super Cup and Bayern were empty handed for the second year running.

Bayern Munich’s glorious era under Beckenbauer was effectively over and the team stagnated for some time. He would leave Bayern in a year’s time joining NASL’s New York Cosmos and others such as Muller would also eventually depart as well.
Anderlecht would have a glorious era of its own in the Cup Winners Cup and reach three straight finals (1976, 1977, 1978) and winning two (1976, 1978).
