Having surprised the continent a year earlier by first reaching, then winning, the European Cup Final, Nottingham Forest were back in 1980 to surprise a few more people by doing the very same thing again. Öster, Arges Pitesti, Dynamo Berlin and Ajax were all dispatched en route to a final date at the Santiago Bernabéu against the powerful West Germans of Hamburg who featured the England international Kevin Keegan in their ranks. From the moment that John Robertson scrambled a 20th minute shot past the Hamburg keeper Kargus, the game evolved into one of constant Hamburg attacking against impenetrable Forest defending. With their main centre forward Horst Hrubesch fit only to play in the second-half, Hamburg's attack floundered on the rock of the twin central defensive Forest pairing of Larry Lloyd and Kenny Burns. On the few occasions the West German side did create clear opportunities, Peter Shilton provided another line of defensive certainty with a brilliant goalkeeping performance that denied Magath, Milewski and Nogly with fine saves. Nottingham Forest weathered the storm to retain their European crown and remain the only club to have won the European Cup more often than their own national League.
