  • Description

    CHELSEA, THE ENGLISH FIRST DIVISION SIDE, BEAT A.C. MILAN, OF ITALY, 2-1 TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY) IN THE RETURN LEG OF THE INTER-CITIES FAIRS CUP THIRD ROUND MATCH.

    A CROWD OF NEARLY 60,000 SAW CHELSEA TAKE THE LEAD TEN MINUTES FROM THE KICK-OFF WHEN INSIDE-RIGHT GEORGE GRAHAM CLIMAXED A MOVE SET OFF BY CENTRE-FORWARD PETER OSGOOD AND HEADED THE BALL OVER THE UPRAISED OF GOALKEPPER BALZARANI.

    NINE MINUTES LATER, THE LOCAL SUPPORTERS WERE ON THEIR FEET AGAIN, AS 18-YEAR-OLD OSGOOD SMASHED THE BALL DEEP INTO THE NET.

    THE PACE WAS FAST, WITH BOTH SIDES HITTING HARD, THOUGH MILAN DID NOT GET THROUGH THE CHELSEA DEFENCES UNTIL THE 44TH MINUTE, WHEN LEFT-WINGER ANGELO SORMANI SNATCHED THE ITALIAN SIDE'S ONLY GOAL.

    THE SECOND HALF PRODUCED NO MORE GOALS, THOUGH BOTH SIDES FOUGHT FOR A MORE POSITIVE RESULT.

    AS IT TURNED OUT, THE TEAMS MUST NOW PLAY-OFF AS THEY FINISHED LEVEL AT 3-3 ON AGGREGATE, THE ITALIAN CLUB HAVING WON THE FIRST LEG 2-1 IN MILAN. A.C. MILAN WON THE TOSS TO DECIDE THE PLAY-OFF GROUND. THEY OPTED FOR A MATCH ON THEIR OWN GROUND.
