Saint-Étienne 1976.

In 1976, Saint-Étienne became the first French club since Reims in 1959 to reach the final of the European Cup. Played at Hampden Park in Scotland, they faced two time defending champions Bayern Munich. The match was hotly contested with Les Verts failing to convert numerous chances.

A single goal by Franz Roth eventually decided the outcome and Saint-Étienne supporters departed Scotland in tears; however, not without nicknaming the goalposts "les poteaux carrés" (the square posts). Saint-Étienne did earn a consolation prize by winning the French league to cap off a successful season but, despite being a contender abroad for many years to come, they never again got close to Europe's biggest prize.
