Background: INTRODUCTION: West German soccer club Hamburg moved into the quarter finals of the European Football Union (UEFA) Cup of Wednesday (9 December) when they beat Aberdeen of Scotland 3-1 to win five goals to four on aggregate.
SYNOPSIS: In first round Aberdeen, playing in the red strip, defeated 1981 winners Ipswich of England. In the first leg of this third around tie they boat Hamburg 3-2 but the West German side equalled the aggregate scores when international striker Horst Hrubesch scored after 33 minutes.
"Fifteen minutes into the second half Hamburg went in front when Felix Magath was tripped in the visitors' penalty area.
The replay shows that Aberdeen could have no quarrel with the decision of Soviet referee Romualdas Yushka.
Memering made no mistake with his firmly struck penalty kick to put Hamburg two up on the night.
The Aberdeen defence was in disarray and seven minutes later the West Germans scored again when Dietmar Jakobs headed home from a left wing cross.
However the Scots battled away and 11 minutes from time they pulled a goal back when substitute McGhee burst between two defenders to score from 20 metres.
A fine goal but it was too late for Aberdeen who were unable to level the aggregate scores in the time remaining. Hamburg will now join another West German club, Kaiserslautern, in the quarter finals of the competition.
