    Background: HUNGARY CAME A STEP CLOSER TO A EUROPEAN SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIPS CUP SEMI-FINAL AGAINST ITALY WHEN IT DEFEATED THE SOVIET UNION TWO-NIL IN THE FIRST LEG OF THE QUARTER-FINAL TIE IN BUDAPEST YESTERDAY (4 MAY). HUNGARY'S TWO GOALS CAME FROM FARKAS AND GOROCS.

    THE SOVIET DEFENCE WAS TOUGH AND EFFICIENT BUT IN ATTACK THEY LACKED PUNCH. HUNGARY WAS WITHOUT ITS STAR FORWARD FLORIAN ALBERT BUT STILL GAVE THE SOVIET DEFENCE A BUSY TIME, WITH FARKAS AND GOROCS SPEARHEADING MOST OF THE ATTACKS.

    THE RUSSIANS TRIED TO COUNTER AND AT ONE STAGE HAD EIGHT MEN IN DEFENCE. A CROWD OF 75,000 WATCHED THE MATCH.
