  • Description

    KING BAUDOUIN AND QUEEN FABIOLA WERE AT THE SOCCER GROUND OF STANDARD LIEGE F.C., AT LIEGE, BELGIUM, APRIL 12, WHEN THE BELGIAN TEAM MET REAL MADRID IN THE SECOND LEG OF THEIR SEMI-FINAL OF THE EUROPEAN CUP SOCCER TOURNAMENT. REAL MADRID HAD WON THE FIRST LEG BY FOUR GOALS TO NIL WHEN THE TEAMS MET IN MADRID. THIS MEANT THAT THE BELGIAN TEAM HAD TO WIN THIS MATCH BY FIVE CLEAR GOALS TO WIN ON AGGREGATE.

    THE FIRST HALF OPENED AS IF THE BELGIANS WOULD SWEEP AWAY THE SPANIARD'S DEFENCE. ONLY OCCASIONALLY WERE THE 40,000 CROWD GIVEN FLASHES OF THE SKILL WHICH HAS TAKEN REAL MADRID INTO THEIR SIXTH FINAL IN SEVEN YEARS, DURING WHICH THEY WERE CUP-WINNERS FIVE TIMES. HOWEVER, THE HALF-TIME WHISTLE WENT WHEN THE SCORE WAS O-O, THANKS LARGELY TO REAL MADRID'S GOALKEEPER ARAQUISTAIN.

    BUT LATER ALL THE BRILLIANT COMBINATION AND SKILL OF THE SPANISH CLUB CAME TO THE FORE. GOALS BY PUSKAS (50TH MINUTE) AND DEL SOL (59TH MINUTE) CLINCHED THEIR PLACE ON A 6-0 AGGREGATE IN THE FINAL AT AMSTERDAM ON MAY 2. THERE THEY MEET THE CUP-HOLDERS, BENFICA OF PORTUGAL, WHO ELIMINATED BRITAIN'S CHAMPIONS TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR LAST WEEK.

    TEAMS:-
    REAL MADRID: ARAQUISTAIN; CASSADO; MIERA; ISIORO; SANTAMARIA; PACHIN; TEJADA; DEL SOL; DI STEFANO; PUSKAS; AND GENTO.

    STANDARD LIEGE: NICOLAY; VLIERS; THELLIN; DELUNARDO; SPRONCK; HOUF; SEMMELING; SZTANI; CLAESSEN; CROSSAN; AND PAESCHEN.

    REFEREE: M. SCHULENBURG.
