- Chalmers carried off after 75 minutes and Celtic play last 15 with 10 men
- Barcelona had 'speed on the ground, speed in the air and most importantly speed between the ears'.
ReviewBarcelona were far too sophisticated for Celtic and showed an abundance of class. The 35 year old Hungarian playmaker Koscis was the best player afield as he pulled the Barca strings in midfield.
The Spaniards used the open spaces to great effect and were always in control.
Celtic were reduced to long range efforts from Murdoch and Gemmell and when Chalmers limped off in 75 minutes Celtic's game was as good as over.
It was a sporting match marred only when Hughes shoulder charged keeper Sadurni.
