On the French side, there were only SC BASTIA and Girondins de BORDEAUX in contention ASSE – AS Saint-Etienne having been eliminated in the first round of the Champions Cup by Dynamo Berlin (BFC Dynamo) …
But … end of the adventure for BASTIA against TBILISSI and for BORDEAUX against HAMBOURG with a certain BECKENBAUER. Too bad … Note that no Latin club was present in the quarterfinals, which is rare enough to be underlined. The big surprise concerned the JUVENTUS TURIN which will have been completed by ANDERLECHT!
Here is the list of the eight teams still running in the Champions Cup: Etoile Rouge Belgarde, Anderlecht, Liverpool FC, CSKA Sofia, Craiova University, Dynamo KIev, Bayern Munich, Aston Villa. Ah definitely, French clubs and European competitions ….
The list of the teams still in contention in C2 (cup winners’ cup): Legia Warsaw, Eintracht Frankfurt, FC Barcelona, FC Porto (who had eliminated the great AS Rome in the previous round), Tottenham, Standard de Liège, Lokomotiv Leipzig and Dinamo Tbilissi (which unfortunately released Roger Milla’s SC Bastia).
And in the UEFA Cup (C3): Real Madrid, Kaiserslautern, FC Valence, IFK Götteborg, Hambourg SV (which therefore eliminated the Girondins de Bordeaux), Neuchâtel Xamax (then coached by a certain Gilbert Gress), Dundee United ( the Scots had released AS Monaco), Radnicki Nis.
