SYNOPSIS: Bayern Munich in red, playing from left to right, kicked off the match, starting with a quick build up to and attack.
Bayern's offensive play continued in the early stages of the match -- but they were steadily beaten by tackles from Israeli defenders.
It wasn't long before the Tel Aviv crowd has something to cheer about. Here, the Israelis attack from the left wing and score a goal -- but it's disallowed.
More nimble footwork by the Israeli mid-field and forward line leads to this attack down the left wing -- but the ball is headed wide.
The second half -- and the game is still without a goal. The West Germans have the ball, but a pass is intercepted and the Israelis attack from the left wing. Malmillan beats the goalkeeper and scores. It's one-nil to the Israelis.

With minutes to go before the final whistle the Israeli striker Dante shoots past the 'keeper to score for their second goal.
