Bristling in Brussels

Bristling in Brussels

On this day in 1982, Villa reached the European Cup final when they held Belgian champions Anderlecht to a goalless draw in the second leg of the semi-final in Brussels.

Tony Barton’s side were through to the final on their first appearance in the competition, courtesy of Tony Morley’s goal in the first leg at Villa Park two weeks earlier.
