Celtic 2 Leeds 1 - 15th April 1970, European Cup SF 2nd Leg

Celtic went into this European Cup Semi Final 2nd Leg having beaten Leeds 1-0 at Elland Road. However, an early Billy Bremner screamer gave the English champions an equaliser. Celtic, though, were determined to reach their 2nd European Cup Final in 4 years, and goals from John Hughes and Bobby Murdoch gave the Hoops the win.

A European record crowd of 136,505 - the game was played at Hampden Park - watched the original Battle of Britain. Celtic would lose to Feyenoord in the final.
