At the third time of asking United have made it to the semi-finals of a European Trophy, and in the Premier Tournament, too. If the victory wasn't achieved with quite the style of past European triumphs, then it didn't detract from the sense of achievement.
Only 20 minutes had elapsed when Davie Dodds made the vital break-through. Richard Gough's cross from the right reached an unmarked Derek Stark, and his pass to Davie Dodds was rammed high into the net by United's leading scorer. Panenka went close just before the interval and apart from that and a late solo run by Keglevits, the United defence were in dominant mood.
Althouqh never a classic, the final whistle brought jubilant scenes on the Tannadice terracing, to mark the historic occasion.
