1975 UEFA Cup Final (2nd Leg) : FC Twente Enschede 1 – Borussia Moenchgladbach 5


================================================================
1974 World Cup-winning defender BERTI VOGTS (left) and Bundesliga side BORUSSIA MOENCHENGLADBACH completed one of the most sensational triumphs in the history of German club football in Europe with the lopsided 5-1 defeat of host Dutch outfit FC TWENTE ENSCHEDE in the second leg of the 1975 UEFA CUP FINAL at the modest Diekman Stadion in the Netherlands.
================================================================

Dutch club FC TWENTE ENSCHEDE’s hopes had been bolstered by the goalless draw in the first leg of the 1975 UEFA Cup Final with BORUSSIA MOENCHENGLADBACH held at the Rheinstadion in Dusseldorf, West Germany. A successful homecoming, then, for one-time SC Hertha Berlin and West German international goalkeeper VOLKMAR GROSS, who had been caught in a match-fixing scandal and given a two-year ban — which was spent outside of FIFA jurisdiction in South Africa with FC Hellenic of Cape Town — in 1971 before heading to Holland. But, unfortunately for Gross and FC Twente Enschede, the return leg with die Fohlen in the Netherlands a fortnight later would prove to be no trophy-lifting treat.

A hat trick from West Germany’s World Cup-winning striker JUPP HEYNCKES, who scored 27 goals to top the Bundesliga for a second consecutive year during the 1974-75 campaign, and a brace from emerging Denmark international attacker ALLAN SIMONSEN saw to the demolition of Dutch dreams with the heavy 5-1 victory for visiting Borussia Moenchengladb ach in the decisive second leg at the Diekman Stadion.

The triumph resulted in the very first European trophy for die Fohlen as well as trainer HENNES WEISWEIILER, who would soon be decamping for wealthy Spanish La Liga club FC Barcelona after winning a third career Bundesliga title with Borussia Moenchengladbach in the summer of 1975.

====================================================
Denmark international superstar ALLAN SIMONSEN, who scored four goals in three different Finals of major European competitions during his time with West German Bundesliga club Borussia Moenchengladbach, got die Fohlen off to a fast start with a blistering drive in only the third minute of the decisive second leg of the 1975 UEFA Cup Final with Dutch side FC Twente Enschede at the Diekman Stadion in the Netherlands.
