  • Description

    INTERNATIONAL MILAN -- THE ITALIAN SOCCER TEAM WHICH HAS HELD THE EUROPEAN CUP FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS -- WAS KNOCKED OUT OF THIS YEAR'S CUP SEMI-FINALS LAST NIGHT (WEDNESDAY) BY REAL MADRID OF SPAIN IN SPITE OF A ONE-ALL DRAW. REAL MADRID BEAT MILAN ONE-NIL LAST WEEK, AND SO QUALIFY FOR THE FINALS ON A TWO-ONE AGGREGATE.

    LAST NIGHT'S MATCH TOOK PLACE AT MILAN'S SAN SIRO STADIUM BEFORE ABOUT 80,000 SPECTATORS. INTERNATIONAL MILAN WENT INTO THE ATTACK FROM THE START, BUT THEIR PASSING LACKED ACCURACY AND NEVER REALLY TROUBLED THE STRONG REAL MADRID DEFENCE IN THE FIRST HALF. THE SPANIARDS, HOWEVER, SCORED THEIR GOAL IN THE FIRST TWENTY MINUTES.

    REAL MADRID CONTINUED TO PLAY CONFIDENTLY UNTIL THE EQUALISER BY THE ITALIANS, WHICH CAME AFTER CLEVER PLAY BY INSIDE-RIGHT MAZZOLA AND CENTRE-FORWARD PIERO 12 MINUTES FROM THE END. FULL-BACK FACCHETTI SENT THE BALL ROCKETING INTO THE REAL MADRID GOAL FROM 15 YARDS (13 METRES) OUT.

    ROARED ON BY AN EXCITED CROWD, INTERNATIONAL MILAN TRIED TO BEAT THE CLOCK AND FORCE A PLAY-OFF. BUT REAL MADRID'S DELAYING TACTICS AND STRONG DEFENCE, COUPLED WITH INACCURATE SHOOTING BY THE ITALIANS, SPOILED INTERNATIONAL MILAN'S SCORING EFFORTS.

    REAL MADRID, FIVE TIMES WINNERS OF THE EUROPEAN CUP, WILL NOW MEET PARTIZAN BELGRADE OF YUGOSLAVIA IN THE FINALS IN BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, ON THE 11TH OF NEXT MONTH. THIS MEANS THAT THE SPANIARDS WILL BE PLAYING IN THE CUP FINALS FOR THE EIGHTH TIME IN 11 YEARS.
