In the final, Yerevan had to face the strongest team in the Soviet Union, the holder of numerous champion titles and gold medals - "Dynamo" from Kiev. In terms of experience, technically skilled and physical training, Dinamo was no equal in the country.

The game began not in Ararat's favor, "Dynamo" scored and was ahead till the last minutes of the match. However, Ishtoyan, the forward of the Yerevan side, kicked a goal in the last minutes of the game and squared the match. The game finished in extra time, when Ishtoyan scored the game-changing goal and "Ararat" became the USSR champion.
