The 1976 Intercontinental Cup was a football tie held over two legs in November and December 1976 between Cruzeiro, winners of the 1976 Copa Libertadores, and the winners of the 1975–76 European Cup, Bayern Munich.

FC Bayern Munich, even as European champion, didn't find compatible schedule together with south-American champion, Club Atlético Independiente, to play the 1975 Intercontinental Cup. This time, however, have no problems and the German club disputed the world title against the 1976 South-American champions, the Brazilian Cruzeiro Esporte Clube.

The team of Bavaria held the base of the German team who won the 1974 FIFA World Cup, with players like Sepp Maier, Franz Beckenbauer, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Gerd Müller. Cruzeiro was the first Brazilian club to become champion of the Copa Libertadores after legendary Pelé's Santos FC. The team had the 1970 FIFA World Cup champions Wilson Piazza and Jairzinho, and other famous players like Nelinho, Raul Plassman and Dirceu Lopes.

The first leg was held on 23 November 1976 at the Munich's Olympic Stadium, home of Bayern Munich. The match finished up as a 2-0 victory for Bayern, in a game with the pitch covered by snow. The goals was scored by Gerd Müller (80th minute) and Jupp Kapellmann (82nd minute).
