  • Description

    LEEDS' GOAL-LESS DRAW WITH LIVERPOOL AT THEIR HOME GROUND TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY) PUTS THEM INTO THE FINAL OF THE EUROPEAN FAIRS CUP, TO BE PLAYED AT WEMBLEY. THEY WON THE FIRST LEG BY THE ONLY GOAL, AND WIN ON AGGREGATE 1-0. LEEDS' OPPONENTS IN THE FINAL WILL BE PANATHINAIKOS OF GREECE.

    THE MATCH, PLAYED BEFORE A CAPACITY CROWD OF 55,000, WAS A FAST GAME DOMINATED BY THE DEFENCES. LIVERPOOL NEEDED THE GOALS TO PULL BACK THE GOAL DEFICIT, BUT COULD NOT PIERCE THE PACKED LEEDS DEFENCE.

    SYNOPSIS: LEEDS KICK OFF FROM RIGHT TO LEFT, PLAYING IN THE WHITE KIT. THEY'RE PLAYING AT HOME ON WEDNESDAY AGAINST LIVERPOOL, IN THE SECOND LEG OF THEIR SEMI-FINAL OF THE EUROPEAN FAIRS CUP. LIVERPOOL, TRAILING BY ONE GOAL FROM THE FIRST LEG, WERE CHASING THE GOALS.

    THE TOUGH LEEDS DEFENCE WERE GIVING NOTHING AWAY. CHARLTON, WHO SCORED THE VITAL WINNING GOAL AGAINST ARSENAL IN THE LEAGUE LAST MONDAY, MARSHALLED THE DEFENCE. LIVERPOOL PUSHED AND PUSHED, BUT CHARLTON AT THE BACK AND BREMNER AND COMPANY IN THE MIDDLE TURNED THE GAME ROUND. LEEDS PUSHED NOW, TO THE DELIGHT OF THEIR 55,000 CAPACITY CROWD. THEIR ONE GOAL MARGIN WOULD NOT GUARANTEE VICTORY, AND THE GAME WAS THROUGHOUT A BATTLE FOR MIDFIELD.

    LIVERPOOL KICK OFF FROM RIGHT TO LEFT TO BEGIN THE SECOND HALF. THEY MUST HAVE HAD A ROUGH TALK FROM THEIR MANAGER, DON REVIE, FOR THEY COME OUT FIGHTING. BUT STILL, LEEDS HELD THEM OUT.

    IN THE END, IT WAS STALEMATE. THE FINAL SCORE WAS 0-0, AND LEEDS GO THROUGH TO THE FINAL OF THE EUROPEAN FAIRS CUP. THEY'LL MEET PANATHINAIKOS OF GREECE IN THE FINAL.
