The game was abandoned after 79 minutes by English referee Jim Finney due to 'persistent fouling'. Horst Nemec was sent-off for spitting and Erich Hof was dismissed for a 'diabolical tackle at waist-height'. Finney said afterwards: "I felt that I had to abandon the match or somebody would have been seriously hurt".
