Spurs in History - 21st April

21st April, 1982

Barcelona 1 Spurs 0 European Cup Winners’ Cup Semi Final (2nd Leg)

Following the brutal game at White Hart Lane which ended in a 1-1 draw there were many concerns over this match and while it never reached the same level of hostility, Barcelona carried on in much the same vein. The tie was settled in the second half and although they pushed forward Spurs could not find a way through the Barcelona defence.

The trophy targets that Spurs had had earlier in the season were gradually slipping away and now they were left with the F.A.Cup as their only chance of silverware.

Could they overcome the weariness of an arduous season to have something to celebrate?
