    SOCCER FROM LONDON: TWO OWN GOALS BY BARCELONA DEFENDERS GAVE CHELSEA A 2-0 WIN IN THE SECOND LEG OF THE INTER-CITIES FAIRS CUP SEMI-FINAL TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY). THE TEAMS FINISHED LEVEL ON A TWO-ALL (2-2) AGGREGATE, BARCELONA HAVING WON THE FIRST LEG 2-0 IN SPAIN LAST MONTH.

    THE MATCH WAS PLAYED ON A RAIN-SOAKED PITCH BEFORE A CROWD OF 40,000. MOST OF THE ATTACKING WAS DONE BY THE LONDON CLUB, BARCELONA BEING CONTENT TO PACK THEIR DEFENCE AND HOLD ON TO THEIR TWO-NIL ADVANTAGE FROM THE FIRST LEG.

    BUT BARCELONA NEARLY TOOK A FIRST-HALF LEAD AFTER ONE OF THEIR PLAYERS WAS BROUGHT DOWN IN ONE OF MANY FOULS WHICH MARRED THE GAME. A POWERFUL FREE KICK WAS DEFLECTED ON THE LINE BY CHELSEA GOALKEEPER PETER BONETTI.

    AT THE OTHER END, A CHELSEA ATTACK WAS HALTED BY ANOTHER FOUL -- THIS TIME BY THE SPANIARDS. AND FOLLOWING ANOTHER INCIDENT, THE SWISS REFEREE ORDERED OFF ELADIO. BUT BEFORE HE WENT OFF, PLAYERS STARTED ARGUING WITH THE REFEREE AND AMONG THEMSELVES. POLICE FINALLY MOVED IN AND ELADIO ACCEPTED HIS MARCHING ORDERS.

    THERE WAS NO SCORE AT HALF-TIME, AND BARCELONA KICKED OFF IN THE SECOND HALF. CHELSEA KEPT UP THE PRESSURE WITH FREQUENT RAIDS INTO THE BARCELONA HALF. THEIR FIRST GOAL CAME FROM A CORNER IN THE 70TH MINUTE. IN A GOALMOUTH
    SCRAMBLE, A CHELSEA HEADER WAS DIVERTED IN BY BARCELONA LEFT-HALF ANTONIO TORRES.

    SEVEN MINUTES LATER CAME THE SECOND GOAL, THIS TIME BY BARCELONA GOALKEEPER REINA, WHO ACCIDENTALLY PUSHED A HIGH LOB INTO HIS OWN GOAL. SO A DRAW ON AGGREGATE. THE PLAY-OFF WILL BE IN BARCELONA ON A DATE TO BE DECIDED TOMORROW.

    (THE WINNERS WILL MEET IN THE FINAL ANOTHER SPANISH CLUB, REAL ZARAGOZA, WHOSE SEMI-FINAL TONIGHT WAS ALSO A PLAY-OFF. THEY BEAT LEEDS 3-1 AT THE ENGLISH CLUB'S GROUND).
