The foundation of success was laid in the first leg in Kyiv. 100,000 spectators witnessed the match on April 2. Oleh Blokhin opened the score seven minutes into the game. Ten minutes before the break he assisted Olexandr Zavarov, who doubled the score. In two minutes Blokhin made the score 3:0 after pass from Vasyl Rats!
After the final whistle Valeriy Lobanovskyi stated:
- After the first half I came up to each player in the locker room and said quietly: “The score is 0:0. We don’t change anything about out tactics. Everyone must stay focused! We mustn’t concede”.
In the second leg Dukla didn’t manage to score the early opener. In the second half they conceded. Olexandr Zavarov converted from the spot. Home side only salvaged a draw – 1:1.
Valeriy Lobanovskyi summarized semifinals with following words:
- Both sides struggled till the final whistle in Kyiv and in Prague. Dynamo had better fitness. First of all I’d like to point out Belanov, Blokhin, Yaremchuk, Rats and Zavarov. Our defenders also played confidently.
