  • Description

    AJAX OF AMSTERDAM TODAY (WEDNESDAY) BEAT BENFICA OF PORTUGAL BY THREE GOALS TO NIL IN A PLAY-OFF MATCH IN THE QUARTER-FINALS OF THE EUROPEAN CUP. THE GOALS WERE SCORED IN EXTRA-TIME BEFORE A 65,000 CROWD IN PARIS.

    FOR THE FIRST TIME FOR MANY YEARS COLOMBES STADIUM IN PARIS WAS FILLED WITH A CAPACITY CROWD FOR THE PLAY-OFF BETWEEN THE DUTCH AND PORTUGUESE CHAMPION FOOTBALL-CLUBS. AFTER THE TWO LEGS OF THEIR QUARTER-FINAL THEY WERE LEVEL WITH FOUR GOALS EACH, BOTH OF THEM HAVING SURPRISINGLY WON THREE TO ONE AWAY FROM HOME.

    FULL TIME WAS REACHED TODAY WITH NOT SCORE, BUT IN EXTRA-TIME BENFICA COULD NOT HOLD THE AJAX ATTACK. THEY SCORED THREE GOALS IN QUICK SUCCESSION THROUGH DANIELSON AND CRUYFF, WHO SCORED TWICE.

    THE MATCH WAS WATCHED BY SOME 20,000 PORTUGUESE SUPPORTERS, BUT THEY WERE OUTNUMBERED BY 35,000 AJAX SUPPORTERS. BENFICA FANS WERE CLEARLY DISAPPOINTED TOWARDS THE END OF THE MATCH, AND THERE WAS FIGHTING IN THE CROWD.
