Perhaps the most special season in football BEK/BL history was 1990-91 thirty years ago. In the huge changes in European history, this is the last season, with fewer than 32 titles nominated. One of the countries is missing in the series. The first person in East Germany, Dynamo Dresden (Dynamo Dresden) began to serve as the GDR representative, but has already withdrawn from the FRG team. In October 1990, Germany joined the Federal Republic of Germany. Unfortunately, the sudden freedom was misunderstood by many football fans. This was one of the reasons for entering football history this year, but there were more reasons later. Before that, let us note that after the Heysel tragedy in 1985, this was the first time that the British champion was asked to nominate, but that was Liverpool, and he was suspended by UEFA for longer than other England teams. Therefore, the series started in the autumn of 1990. Although there was no British gold medal, there were still East Germany, Yugoslavia and Soviet champions.
According to the announcement at the time, two duels were held in 1990, thus forming the best eight games. The defending champion AC Milan only needs to score one goal because he became the champion in the first round and bid farewell to the Belgian FC FC Bruges in the second round. In the top eight, he met the French Olympic Marseille. Milan’s game ended 1-1, and the two scorers have shown the strength of the two teams: Ruud Gullit and Jean-Pierre Papin. In addition, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Frank Rijkaard and Manuel Amoros, Eric Names such as Eric Cantona and Abedi Pelé are all played in French. Marseille leads Milan by 1-1, but no one can describe Milan. La Gazzetta dello Sport interviewed 100 famous Italians in sports, culture and public life to introduce the way forward, 86 of whom voted for Milan.
There was no goal in the French port city for a long time, and then under the attack of Chris Waddle in the 75th minute, the French team moved closer. However, if the Italians are hit, it will mean working overtime. He didn’t want to be born, so in the last few minutes, the Italians could only believe in miracles. No miracles happen, but they rarely happen in modern sports. At the beginning of the five-minute overtime, the stadium was completely dark. The referee had no doubts and sent a penalty to Bo Karlsson. Then turning the burner back on is not easy, It took more than 15 minutes for the stadium to re-illuminate and broadcast TV programs. When the players wait in the locker room, of course they all know that there are 3-4 minutes left in the meeting. Milan would have had a lot of time to score. But his then sports director Adriano Galliani (Adriano Galliani) had more confidence in sports diplomacy than in world star players. He did not let his players move on. Maybe you think that the European Union will abandon your team due to deficiencies in reconciliation? To be sure, UEFA made one or two amazing decisions at the time, but it is difficult to imagine Milan’s announcement after 180 minutes of decisive battle and OM with a total score of 2-1. The Turkish inspector and the Swedish referee almost begged the Italians to continue the meeting, but they refused to return. So the French team stood up and moved on, The referee placed the ball precisely in the corner of the Milan Futsal, because the ball left the Italian baseline before the “darkness”.
OM President Bernard Tapie said after the competition: “Some people compare the Italian team to a big Scala band. There is also a three-person accordion ensemble. But we played more beautifully. It is a pity that Milan cannot lose with dignity. ”
Thirty years ago, one of the quarter-final duels ended in this way. But the other way is more dramatic. Yugoslav Crvena Zvezda (Nusgoslav Crvena Zvezda) won the Dynamo Dresden in front of 82,500 spectators in the opening game.At that time always Maracanã in Belgrade has a hellish atmosphere.Thanks to firecrackers, smoke bombs and other pyrotechnic equipment, they are almost always smoking force. The Belgrade defender scored 3-0 with goals from Robert Prosinski, Dragisa Binix and Dejan Savage. The advantages are huge, but German fans want to translate. But they don’t just want to win a field battle.
At 8 o’clock in the morning of the revenge, a unified German hooligan from East Germany was waiting for the Druckers to arrive from Yugoslavia by train. More importantly, not only there, but also the most ardent fans of Dortmund Football Club, who can compete with them at any time. The people of Dresden used to sympathize with the Ruhr workers’ team for the same club color (yellow and black) and invited people there to participate in the competition by letter. They have not used football games as an excuse for a while, and those who accepted football games happily accepted the invitation. In the morning, the police were still able to prevent large-scale fights at the station, but they were no longer in several places in the city in the morning. The 1,200 policemen assigned to the guest trucks broke into shop windows in the city center in vain, smashed cars, and bleeding fans said the whereabouts of the two hardcore members before the game. Before the meeting, 44 people had been arrested.
In the evening, the organizers confiscated 1 pistol (!), 38 knives and countless tear gas sprays at the entrance of Rudolf Harbig Stadium. But many of the latter (even knives) have entered the stands. Due to the expected life-threatening decorations or huge disadvantages, it is not clear whether only 10,000 spectators gathered in the stadium. The class of more peaceful supporters is not abundant. On the other hand, the most desolate part and the guests are also crowded.
When Torsten Gütschow came in from the right, the crowd in his hometown was not impressed, and three minutes later, it was difficult for him to score. Hope he can bring his three-goal disadvantage. This makes the emotions even crazier. Of course, many people are not interested in the results or the competition. Initially, the “only” bottles flew up, but then some bottles began to dismantle the stadium. During the rest, the wildest saboteurs also arrived from Berlin, after which the stones flew over the fields.
Dresden goalkeeper Thomas Köhler recalled the worst moment of the second day of the meeting: “The situation is really catastrophic! If you throw a stone on someone, our players are in danger of death, and they will die. .”
In the terrible misfortune, there is only one thing to be happy about: the Dresden Stadium also has a running track, so spectators run wild on the relatively far away stadium. In the process of throwing the ball, the Yugoslavian team reversed the game due to goals from Dejan Savichevich and Darko Panchev and actually decided to move forward. The last drop poured into the glass was at the corner of the guest in the 78th minute. Rockets and rock rain greeted Zvezda players, The adjacent coastal landmark (and even called it) was also destroyed. Referee Soriano Aladren tried to persuade security personnel to create conditions for the sequel, but it did not go well. Domestic players can’t suppress their emotions, which is understandable, because everything in the affected department is already more important than the game. After a few minutes of discussion, a guest player went out to make the corner again, but again there was only one stone shower to say hello. The referee blew the game and fled to the locker room with the teams. A special police tank slid into the runway and dispersed the crowd into the area with water cannons.
