Answers to questions 31-40

A-31, it has been done four times by Inter Milan, Celtic, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa.

A-32, the legendary Real Madrid winger Francisco Gento played in all Real Madrid wins from 1956-60 and added another in 1966 for a total of 6. He was also a runner up twice.

A-33, Manchester United’s 2-0 loss to Barcelona in the 2009 final was their first loss after going 25 games without a loss. The streak started after a 3-0 semi final loss to Milan in 2007.

A-34, the unfortunate record is held by two teams – Stade Reims (1956 and 59) and Valencia (2000 and 2001).

A-35, that would be Raul who has scored 71 goals for Real Madrid and Schalke (not out)

A-36, Paolo Maldini opened the scoring for Milan against Liverpool in 2005.

A-37, Liverpool’s Bob Paisley was in charge in 1977, 1978 and 1981 and no one else can match his record although on Saturday Sir Alex Ferguson has the chance.

A-38, Austrian Ernst Happel led Feyenoord (Netherlands) to a win in 1970 and repeated with Hamburg (West Germany) thirteen years later. Jose Mourinho joined Happel last season when Inter (Italy) won after he managed Porto (Portugal) to the title in 2004.

A-39, True – Ferenc Puskas scored all of Real Madrid’s goals in the 1962 final but Benfica scored 5.

A-40, nine have required penalties to decide the winner.

More questions tomorrow.

One response to “European Cup Quiz – Answers to Questions 31 – 40”

  1. Soccerlogical says:

    This educational quiz is starting to remind me of a “Cheers” episode.

    Cliff Clavin, a 40 year old postal carrier who lives with his mom and is a regular at the Boston pub and self proclaimed “bar know-it-all” gets his dream of competing on Jeopardy.

    “Cliffey” (as his mom affectionately called him when asking anyone at the bar of her son’s whereabouts) was ahead by a large amount and about to win the game. On the Final Jeopardy question Cliff’s hubris got the better of him as he foolishly bet all his winnings when all he needed was to risk a dollar less his winnings up to that point and still be crowned champion.

    The Final Jeopardy clue was:
    Archibald Leach, Bernard Schwartz and Lucille Lesueur.

    To which “Cliffey” answered (while sweating
    profusely):

    “Who are three people who have never been in my kitchen.”

    So i am pulling a Cliff Clavin on this CL quiz. 🙂
