Short Olden times of Fortuna Düsseldorf 1960 and 1970´s
Fortuna Düsseldorf was then a little better than a mid-table side, but they did manage to play their way into the premier division three years later for a cameo appearance in the 1966-67 season. They were immediately relegated, but returned in 1971-72 for a stay that lasted sixteen seasons and that included two third place league finished. Fortuna enjoyed better luck in German Cup play, making another three appearance: after losing in their fifth appearance in the final, in 1978 they finally broke through and came away as cup holders in 1979 and then repeated in 1980.
Their beast turn. European competition was in the Cup winners Cup Final in 1979 where they finished as runners up to FC Barcelona, dropping a 3-4 decision
in extra time.
