  • Description

    THE PORTUGUESE CHAMPIONS, BENFICA OF LISBON, SWEPT THROUGH TO THE SEMI-FINALS OF THE EUROPEAN CUP WHEN THEY BEAT VASAS BUDAPEST 3-0 LN LISBON ON THURSDAY (14 MARCH). THE FIRST LEG-QUARTER FINAL GAME IN BUDAPEST HAD BEEN A GOALESS DRAW. BENFICA'S COLOURED STAR EUSEBIO, WHO BECAME A FATHER THE DAY OF THE GAME, CELEBRATED THE OCCASION WITH TWO LOVELY GOALS.

    BENEFICA SCORED AFTER 47 MINUTES WHEN EUSEBIO ROCKETED A SHOT IN FROM 25 YARDS AFTER THE HUNGARIAN GOALKEEPER, VARGA, HAD FISTED OUT A CENTRE FROM SIMOES. EUSEBIO MADE IT 2-0 WHEN HE SCORED FROM A FREE KICK AFTER 63 MINUTES. FIVE MINUTES FROM THE END, BENFICA WENT FURTHER AHEAD WHEN CENTRE-FORWARD, TORRES, SCORED FROM A REBOUND OFF THE CROSS-BAR.

    MANCHESTER UNITED OF ENGLAND HAVE ALREADY REACHED THE EUROPEAN CUP SEMI-FINAL. THE OTHER TWO PLACES WILL BE FILLED FROM THE WINNERS OF THE JUVENTUS (ITALY) - EINTRACT BRUNSWICK (WEST GERMANY) AND THE REAL MADRID - SPARTA PRAGUE GAMES.
