Background: Scottish Champions Celtic were knocked out of their European Cup Semi Final against Atletico Madrid my two goals to nil before 65,000 Spanish fans in the Vincente Calderon Stadium on Wednesday (24 April).
The cautious and cleanly played game, refereed by a 49-year-old Swiss Army Colonel, was in complete contrast to the first scoreless leg in Glasgow when three Spaniards were sent off, many players were booked and there was a post match brawl which has been called the "battle of glasgow".
The European Football Union banned six of the Atletico players form the second leg, including their star Argetinian striker Ruben Ayala. And about 1,000 police mingled with the crowd to prevent a repeat of the svagery of the first leg.
Both Atletico goals came in the sound half: The first form centre forward Jose Garate in the 76th minute and the decider form defender Adelardo five minutes for the end.
Atletico's opponents in the European Cup Final in Brussels on IS May will be West German champions Bayern Munich who beat Hungary's Ujpost Dozsa 3-0 on Wednesday to win the Semi Final 4-1 on aggregate.
