MATCH SUMMARY

Holderโ€™s Villaโ€™s grip on the European Cup fails as three defensive errors gift three goals to Juventus in Turin to leave them beaten 2-5 on aggregate and out in the quarter finals. Nigel Spink, Hero of Rotterdam, let Platiniโ€™s routine shot trickle over the line on 13โ€™ before he is totally taken out of the game, needs Allan Evans to clear and Juve score from the resultant corner. 1-4 behind on aggregate at half time with twenty to play Ken McNaught is dispossessed on his own penalty spot for Platini to fire home his second.
