Spurs in History - 20th October

20th October, 1982

Spurs 1 Bayern Munich 1 European Cup Winners’ Cup 2nd Round (1st Leg)
Scorer: Archibald

Steve Archibald
Spurs went into this game under strength due to injuries to a number of key players.  Steve Perryman, Glenn Hoddle, Graham Roberts, Chris Hughton and Tony Galvin were missing, being replaced by young players and squad members.  They performed creditably with Steve Archibald scoring their goal after only three minutes and Garry Brooke hitting the bar.

Spurs also had two possible penalty appeals turned down but in the second half Bayern scored the important away goal following a poor clearance.

Clemence, Price, O'Reilly (Gibson), Miller, Lacy, Hazard, Brooke, Archibald (Falco), Mabbutt, Villa, Crooks.

Scorer: Hughton

The away leg proved too much for Spurs as they lost 1 - 4 on a foggy night in Munich.  It was so bad that the match should have been postponed.  Conditions were poor before the game and deteriorated during it.  So bad was it that spectators at either end couldn't see beyond the half way line and goal scorer Chris Hughton had to describe his goal to the Spurs fans he met at the airport on the way home. None of them had seen it and Spurs' European campaign ended earlier than anticipated.
