FC Cologne 1 Spurs 2 UEFA Cup 4th Round (1st Leg)
A great away win, thanks to goals from youngster, Chris McGrath who was having a great debut season, and captain Martin Peters. This result put Spurs in a strong position ahead of the 2nd Leg at White Hart Lane. Spurs took an early lead through McGrath and then defended stoutly. It was early in the second half that Cologne got a deserved equaliser but Spurs continued to defend resolutely and with fifteen minutes left scored on the break through Peters. This was only Cologne's second defeat at home in European competitions.
