Answers to questions 51-60

A-51, it is true and it was not Clarence Seedorf. The player was Joseph “Jef” Jurion who played for Anderlecht. In the 1962/63 competition Anderlecht drew 3-3 with Real Madrid in Spain with Jurion scoring a goal. In the return leg Jurion scored the only goal of the game with five minutes remaining and Real Madrid was knocked out.

A-52, Four – Marcel Desailly (Marseille 93 and Milan 94), Paulo Sousa (Juventus 96 and Borussia Dortmund 97), Gerard Piqué (Manchester United 08 and Barcelona 09) and Samuel Eto’o (Barcelona 09 and Inter 10).

A-53, Nottingham Forest – they won the English League in 1978 and went on to win the European Cup the next season. They finished as English league runners up in 1979 but qualified as reigning European Cup champions for the 1980 competition which they won once again.

A-54, it was in 1986, the team was Barcelona and the manager was Terry Venables.

A-55, Hernan Crespo scored twice for Milan in the 2005 against Liverpool but Liverpool won on penalty kicks after a 3-3 draw after extra time.

A-56, Real’s first goal scorer was Miguel Munoz who scored in the 74th minute against Servette FC in Switzerland on September 8th, 1955. Real Madrid won the game 2-0.

A-57, Milan lost their very first game in the European Cup in 1955 4-3 at home to German side Saarbrucken. Three weeks later Milan went to Germany and won the second leg 4-1.

A-58, Scotland and the cities are Glasgow (Celtic ’67, ’70, ’72, ’74; Rangers ’60) and Dundee (Dundee ’63, Dundee United ’84)

A-59, Jose Altafini scored 14 goals in the 1962/63 season for Milan including two in the final against Benfica.

A-60, Ajax, Liverpool, Milan and Manchester United have all gone unbeaten twice. United had a chance to make it three this season. (correction to Barcelona being included as part of the original answer)

For those who have stuck it out since Monday – thank you. Hopefully you had some fun testing your knowledge and we all learned something along the way.

    Bobby, I may be misreading the last part of the answer to question 60, but I think you’re saying that Barcelona will have gone through this Champions League campaign unbeaten. However, they lost to Arsenal in the round of 16.
    Anyway, this has been a very interesting series of questions and I’ve really enjoyed them. Thanks for the quiz.

  2. Alec – you are correct. I will fix.

    Bobby:

    You managed to squeeze that Dandee semifinal appearance in 1963, didn’t you?

    Any way, it was a great experience. I learned a lot.

  4. Gus – I did indeed. There was one other opportunity but it would have taken too long to confirm. Highest score by a team making debut. Dundee 8-1 Cologne.

  5. Mike says:

    What about Sir Bobby Robson at Porto in 1994 for question 54?
