European Cup 1980 1981 Liverpool Aberdeen

Round of 16, Second Leg
Anfield Road
5 November 1980

Attendance: 36,182

History records this tie as the only ever meeting of those two great managers Bob Paisley and Sir Alex Ferguson. Aberdeen boasted the talents of Miller, McLeish, Leighton and a fiery young red head called Strachan and had managed to break the Old Firm stranglehold on Scottish football.  With the away goal in the bag the Reds sat about the second leg in confidence. It took some thirty eight minutes though before the Reds opened up their account thanks to a Willie Miller own goal. Phil Neal swept one home before half time as well and the tie was all but over. Dalglish and Hansen completed a 4-0 rout which meant the Reds had won far more easily than they had planned when the draw had been made.

Scottish champions Aberdeen were handed a European lesson from Liverpool as the Dons were crushed 4-0 in the European Cup tie at Anfield. It was always going to be a tough task for the Dons who trailed 1-0 from the first game at Pittodrie. After Mark McGhee missed an early opportunity for Aberdeen, there was no way back as Liverpool took command with two goals before the break. Drew Jarvie, the experienced Aberdeen forward was quoted as saying to his team mates at half time; "Come on lads, just three quick goals and we are back in it!"
