The legendary game at the 1982 FIFA World Cup in Spain saw Germany defeat Austria with an early goal, a result which saw Algeria eliminated from the tournament.
However the German coach has insisted that Algeria should not be looking to punish his players.
"Why should they be seeking to punish this generation of Germany players? I am irritated by the use of word 'revenge,"' Low told reporters.
"But maybe this will work as motivation for Algeria."
Germany meet Algeria in the last 16 on Monday night at the Estadio Beira-Rio in Porto Alegre.
