It was because that 15 May 1974, at Heysel Stadium, Brussels, Germans and Spaniards drew one in the first match with goals from Luis Aragones for Atletico and Schwarzenbeck for Bayern.


That first final ended goalless and it was in overtime when they reached the two goals. The first was by a direct free masterfully executed by the red and white legend, Luis Aragones, in the minute 114 party.

It seemed impossible that he could escape title to Atletico Madrid when the 120 extra time, ie at the last minute, a whiplash from outside the area went into the goal defended by Miguel Reina, Atletico goalkeeper at that time.
