Gary Lineker put Tottenham ahead on 14 minutes, with a hooked volley and then Gordon Durie made it 2-0 shortly after.  Emil Kostadinov gave Porto some hope when he reduced the arrears after 52 minutes, but Lineker gave Spurs the two goal cushion again when he scored again eight minutes from time, following eleven passes that lead to the Spurs forward coolly passing the ball past Victor Baia into the net.

17.09.1991 Hajduk Split won a tight Cup-Winners Cup First Round First leg against Spurs played in Linz, Austria, because of the civil war in Yugoslavia.  A 53rd minute goal was the reward for putting Spurs under pressure throughout the game, but especially in the first half.  Tottenham had a strong finish, but could not convert the chances they created.

Ivica Mornar looked likely to score with an early effort, but Gary Mabbutt's tackle took the ball away as he prepared to shoot inside the first minute.  The quick start Split made had Spurs on the back foot, with Gudni Bergsson heading Goran Vucevic's effort off the line.  Mabbutt sliced a clearance that Walker showed good reflexes to keep out in the 19th minute and then Vucevic rattled the bar soon after.

Spurs forced a corner in the 25th minute, but had to wait seven minutes more before they had an effort on goal, with Nayim and Durie exchanging passes before the midfielder fired over. 

Eight minutes after half-time, Split took the lead when Mario Novakovic had a long range shot which managed to squirm past Walker's hands as he took his eyes off the ball and trickled over the line.  Walker redeemed himself a couple of minutes after the goal when Kozniku raced through and the keeper foiled him with a dive at his feet.  Robert Jarni had been proving problematical on the left wing, making runs from full back, but Paul Allen came on for David Howells to prevent him attacking that wing.

Spurs broke away in the 65th minute, but Lineker shot wide of the target, then Paul Stewart went close after a determined run and Samways volleyed wide, before Vucevic brought a good save out of Walker to stop his 77th minute free-kick.  Tottenham finished the game on the attack, with Nayim going close and then Stewart had a great chance meeting Samways' free-kick with his head, but the ball stayed out and Split were well worth their narrow victory.

04.09.1991 The Second leg of the qualifying round saw Spurs struggle to overcome a resistant Stockerau side who set up very defensively at White Hart Lane.

It took a 41st minute goal from Gary Mabbutt to see Spurs through with a 2-0 aggregate win.

20.03.1985 Spurs had a bold effort in getting the tie back from Real Madrid in the Bernabeu stadium, but failed with a combination of bad luck and some dubious refereeing.

Mark Falco's second half header was ruled out for a foul, but this seemed a harsh decision, while Steve Perryman was later sent off for bringing down Valdano as he was through on goal.

06.03.1985 Spurs fell to their first home defeat in a European tie as Real Madrid left White Hart Lane with a 1-0 victory.

The Real defence held firm, as Tottenham created a number of openings, but could not find a testing effort on goal.  A breakaway at the other end, Steve Perryman's attempt to stop the cross from Emilio Butragueno getting to Jorge Valdano saw the ball bounce off his knee and past Ray Clemence in the Spurs goal.

07.11.1984 Spurs roared into the next round with a 3-0 victory to see them through 3-2 on aggregate against Club Brugge at White Hart Lane.

Starting without the suspended Chris Hughton, who was booked for the second time in the competition in the first leg and Glenn Hoddle who was dismissed in Belgium, Spurs set about their task with vigour.

Graham Roberts put an early tackle in on Ceulemans, who limped about for the rest of the match, but Micky Hazard levelled the aggregate score within five minutes with a good strike.  With two quick goals within seven minutes, Tottenham were coasting by the break and Brugge offered little in return.

Tony Galvin put in a cross that Jensen flapped at and Clive Allen was on hand to knock the ball into the net from six yards and then, after the ball had bobbled around the penalty area, it fell to Graham Roberts, who was 30 yards out, to smash the ball with great ferocity past the helpless Brugge keeper.

24.10.1984 A nightmare game for Spurs saw Glenn Hoddle sent off for two bookings and only a Clive Allen strike late in the game gave Tottenham a lifeline in the second leg.

Skipper Jan Ceulemans opened the scoring for the Belgian side after just six minutes and then Steve Perryman conceded a penalty, which was rammed home by the Danish keeper Birger Jensen, who was the regular Brugge penalty taker.

Spurs managed to hold out for the remainder of the match and then seven minutes from time, Allen came on to score an important away goal for the ten men of Spurs after Hoddle had been sent off for not retreating from a free-kick.

03.10.1984 The second leg proved easier than expected for Tottenham, with a 6-0 victory wrapping up a 9-0 aggregate win.

Young defender Carvahal sent a weak header out, but it went towards Gary Stevens, who dispatched a powerful drive past keeper Helder to give Tottenham a flying start and Chris Hughton followed up with a second on fifteen minutes after being put through by Micky Hazard.  Carvahal did not intercept Tony Galvin's cross and Garth Crooks was let in to head the third Spurs goal with 25 minutes gone.

Glenn Hoddle entered the field at the break for his first appearance since getting injured six months before and he opened the way with a fine pass through the defence for Crooks to make it 4-0 twelve minutes into the second period.  Mark Falco made it five with a 66th minute close range effort and then Crooks seized on a poor Dito back-pass to score his hat-trick goal after 82 minutes and see Tottenham through convincingly.

19.09.1984 The First Round first leg meeting with Portuguese side Braga found Spurs taking a 3-0 lead back to London for the second leg.

Despite the home side hitting the frame of the goal on three occasions, Mark Falco scored twice and Tony Galvin also got on the score-sheet to record a good away win.  Galvin and Hughton worked the left wing well to create Falco's first on 31 minutes, with Hazard playing a through ball for the Spurs striker to net his second as the half-time whistle approached.  Galvin got in on the act in the dying stages of the first half, as Hughton set him up for his goal.

23.05.1984 A tense night at White Hart Lane saw Spurs pick up the UEFA Cup, but only after going a goal behind and then facing a penalty shoot-out.

Alex Czerniatinski raced clear to hit Anderlecht into a shock lead that silenced White Hart Lane with an hour of the game gone, as he delicately lifted the ball over Tony Parks.  Spurs looked as though they might suffer their first ever home defeat in Europe and when substitute Ossie Ardiles fired against the bar from close range and it flew out, it looked as though it was not to be Tottenham's night.  However, the ball was played back in by Micky Hazard and captain on the night Graham Roberts chested the ball down and rammed it home to level the score with just seven minutes left on the clock.

Into extra time, there were few chances and the penalty shoot out went to and fro.  Graham Roberts, Mark Falco, Gary Stevens and Stave Archibald scored for Spurs, then Parks saved Morten Olsen's penalty and with the chance to win the cup for Tottenham, Danny Thomas had his spot-kick saved too.  When Arnar Gudjohnsson stepped up to take his kick, Tony Parks flung himself to his right and pushed it out to see Spurs take the trophy for the second time.

09.05.1984 A Paul Miller goal gave Spurs the lead in the UEFA Cup Final first leg in Brussels.  Heading in from a corner, Miller rose to net Mike Hazard's cross and put Tottenham into a strong position.

However, two drawbacks left the second leg in the balance, as Steve Perryman received his second yellow card of the tournament and would be suspended for the second leg and five minutes from time defender Morten Olsen scrambled an equaliser from close range.

25.04.1984 Spurs trailed from the first leg, but with the all important away goal knew a one goal win would be enough. 

The fact that that goal came six minutes into the match meant Tottenham were aware of the need for a clean sheet for the remaining 84 minutes.  A handball outside the box gave Micky Hazard the opportunity to drill home a 25 yard free-kick low past the Spilt keeper.  A hold-up occurred after the goal, as Hazard lost a contact lens in the celebrations and it had to be found before he left the field to put it back in !!

11.04.1984 On a soaking wet night in Split, Spurs went down 1-2 after taking the lead. 

As the rain poured down after a sunny afternoon, Mark Falco took a penalty awarded for handball.  His shot was saved by Zoran Simovic, but he followed up and slid in Tottenham's goal.   At the other end, Tony Parks could only watch as one header from Ivan Gudelj slithered in and another saw him hampered as the winner for the home side hit the net courtesy of Dusran Pesic.  Spurs did have the away goal, which was useful in this backs to the wall performance after a good start.

21.03.1984 The Prater stadium was the setting for Tottenham's UEFA Cup Fourth Round second leg meeting with Austria Vienna.

Gary Stevens and Steve Archibald paved the way as Alan Brazil made it 3-0 on aggregate with a neat 15th minute finish to send the Spurs fans held in a cage into raptures.  While Vienna pressured Tottenham, there were few threatening moments and when Ossie Ardiles fired high into the home goal off the crossbar in the 82nd minute the tie was securely wrapped up.

However, not wanting to go down without a fight, two goals in the last few minutes salvaged a 2-2 draw, but it was not enough to stop Tottenham going through to the semi-final.

23.11.1983 Spurs travelled to Germany in the grip of a cold snap, which left the pitch frozen solid and the match in doubt.  However, it went ahead with players wearing gloves and tights to stay as warm as they could in the -10° temperature.

The Tottenham team started well and Archibald and Falco tested Pfaff in the Bayern goal, but the home side began to dominate on the slippery surface.  Influential midfielder Karl-Heinz Rummenigge had to leave the play at half-time with an injury, but Munich came strongly in the second half with Danish midfielder Lerby was unlucky with two free-kicks.  However, with only five minutes remaining, Michael Rummenigge ran directly at the Tottenham defence and rifled a shot that found the target past Ray Clemence in goal.

A first half brace of goals from Spurs took Locomotive by surprise and set up the win.  Mike England's pass to Jimmy Neighbour got the ball to Peters to finish off move in the 15th minute.  When Ray Evans marauded down the right wing in the 26th minute, his cross was met by Ralph Coates, who netted from close range.

A goal was pulled back by Locomotive in the 58th minute, when a cross was converted by Wolfram Lowe to give the East German team a glimmer of hope for the second leg, but the defence including mike England was a head wound, held out.

Tottenham were 2-1 ahead at the break thanks to Martin Chivers and Ray Evans, who scored against the run of play on the break. In the last 12 minutes, Chivers added another and Alan Gilzean grabbed a brace to give Spurs an unbalanced first leg lead.

13.09.1972 Lyn of Oslo were Tottenham's first opponents as holders of the UEFA Cup and although Spurs won 6-3, it was a harder match than the score-line suggests.

The match was played in the Ullevaal Stadium and the home club took a shock lead after 10 minutes through Jon Austnes.  However, Spurs woke up to the threat as Martin Peters grabbed the equaliser and soon were ahead through a goal from John Pratt, shooting home from just outside the area and two from Alan Gilzean.  Lyn fought back and stunned Tottenham with two goals by Trygve Christophersen and Torbjorn Skjerve almost made it 4-4, only Pat Jennings with a fine save keeping the ball out.

It required two late goals from Martin Chivers - the fifth goal a floating header over the keeper from a right wing cross - to help Spurs take a lead back to White Hart Lane for the second leg.

While Spurs created a lot of chances, it looked like being one of those nights when nothing would go for them, until a late header from Alan Gilzean saved face and earned Tottenham a draw.

15.12.1971 A torrid second leg saw a cynical performance from the home side which Tottenham had to rise above to progress to the Fourth Round.

The game was moved from Rapid's Giulisti stadium to the national stadium in Bucharest and many home fans were given the day off work to attend and produce a very hostile atmosphere.   The determination on the Romanian players to not let Spurs pass meant that they did not attack the Spurs goal that much, leaving substitute Jimmy Pearce to score the opening goal of the match on 58 minutes.  However, his participation only lasted another six minutes, as he was dismissed with Ion Pop as they got involved in a fight.

Tottenham continued to play their own game and although Martin Peters put a penalty against a post in the 68th minute, Chivers notched the second Tottenham goal of the game with four minutes left to total a 5-0 aggregate score-line against a brutal Rapid Bucarest team.

A good move ended with captain Martin Peters netting within fifteen minutes to give Tottenham a goal's advantage, but missed opportunities by Chivers and Gilzean.  Martin Chivers had gone close twice with a hooked shot wide from Peters' free-kick and then keeper Jean-Paul Betrand-Demanes beat out a drilled shot by the big striker. Unfortunately, the game was all one way traffic, with Jennings having little to do and Nantes trying to hold out for the majority of the game.

Blanchet almost made Spurs pay with an early second half opportunity, but he shot wide and Spurs went on to press forward with enough chances for Spurs to have wrapped the tie up, but Nantes' resolute defending kept them down to one goal.

Big money signing (£200,000) Giovanni Toschi had some early chances, but did not really test Pat Jennings in goal.  At the other end Mike England hit the post with a header and another header, this time from Martin Peters, was well kept out by goalie Luciano Castellini.  It was late in the game that Torino pushed for an equaliser and Jennings performed acrobatically to deny Ferrini and Toschi.

Spurs entered the European Cup Winners Cup Final without talisman Dave Mackay, but a great performance blew Atletico Madrid away, just a year after they had lifted this trophy.

Jimmy Greaves opened proceedings with a goal in 16 minutes, converting a Cliff Jones cross, with Bobby Smith laying on a chance for John White to smash home a second goal soon after.  

Two minutes after the break, Ron Henry handled a shot on the goal-line to concede a penalty and Enrique Collar shot past Brown from the spot to make it 2-1.  Atletico put some pressure on the Spurs goal, but could not break through.

Spurs eased the nerves when White threaded a pass through to Terry Dyson, who crashed in a fine shot from a tight angle, then crossed for Greaves to shoot home the fourth (and his 44th of the season).  Dyson rounded off his man of the match display with a run through the middle of the Atletico defence to smash in an unstoppable drive to make the final score 5-1 and to give Spurs the honour of being the first British team to lift a European trophy.

Spurs overcame crack Yugoslav side OFK Belgrade in the semi-final second leg to reach their first European final.

Missing suspended Jimmy Greaves, Tottenham weathered some OFK pressure as they sought an equaliser on aggregate and then, in the 23rd minute, Danny Blanchflower put Dave Mackay through to score the opening goal of the game.  The visitors hit back quickly with Josip Skoblar drawing Belgrade level, but the nerves were settled when a move involving Blanchflower, White and Mackay set up Cliff Jones to put Tottenham 2-1 up on the night, just before the half-time whistle.

With a two goal cushion, Spurs played a little more freely and a full-length diving header from Bobby Smith wrapped up a 5-2 aggregate win to put Tottenham through to meet Atletico Madrid in the European Cup Winners Cup final, despite the OFK players trying to aggravate the Spurs players with cynical challenges.

Spurs secured a 2-1 win to take a one goal lead back to White Hart Lane and two vital away goals in this bad tempered European Cup Winners Cup semi-final first leg in Yugoslavia.

With goals coming from John White and Terry Dyson, firing home from 12 yards out with the keeper out of position, OFK's only response came from Milorad Popov from the penalty spot.  The match was marred by intimidation by the home players, which lead to Jimmy Greaves being sent off for retaliation.

14.03.1963 Tottenham recorded a 6-0 win in this European Cup Winners Cup quarter final second leg after coming into the game trailing after the first match.

It took until just after the half-hour for Tottenham to open the scoring, when Dave Mackay paved the way for this win.  Other goals followed from Jimmy Greaves (2), John White, Bobby Smith and Cliff Jones to see Tottenham move on to play OFK Belgrade in the semi-final.

05.04.1962 A European Cup semi-final nearly ended in triumph for Tottenham, but Benfica did just enough to go through to a meeting with Real Madrid.

3-1 down from the first leg, Spurs soon were further behind when a suspiciously offside 15th minute goal from Aguas made it a very uphill battle for Tottenham.  Controversy prevented Greaves getting Tottenham back into the tie with a goal that was ruled out for offside after initially being awarded by the ref.  As Tottenham pressed forward, the pressure paid off when Bobby Smith converted a John White cross ten minutes before half-time.

When White was fouled in the area by Coluna just after the break, Blanchflower put away the penalty to put Spurs only two goals behind.

In a frantic finish, Smith hit the woodwork no less than three times and only some elastic saves from the Benfica keeper kept Tottenham out and heaped disappointment on the way the team had gone out.

21.03.1962 A fast start by Benfica gave Tottenham a setback in their European Cup semi-final first leg.

Jose Aguas and Jose Augusto hit goals within the opening 20 minutes to leave Spurs shaken, but Bobby Smith pulled a goal back in the early stages of the second half.  However, despite a disallowed Jimmy Greaves goal (for offside), Augusto got his second on 65 minutes with a header to leave Spurs a tough task in the second leg.  The Portuguese side's lead could have been slimmer with Smith knocking in Greaves' cross, only to find it ruled out for a lineman's offside flag once more despite being behind the ball when it was played to him.

20.09.1961 Tottenham overturned a first leg deficit to sweep through the preliminary round of the European Cup in great style. Aided by a fervent crowd who, the Gornik Zabrze manager Dzenis Zygmun said, "had my players completely off their stroke," the players turned around a 2-4 score-line in Poland to win 8-1 (10-5 on aggregate).

Spurs had already hit the crossbar in the first minute with a Les Allen effort, before a goal after nine minutes when Danny Blanchflower netted a penalty and ten minutes later, the aggregate score was 4-4 when Cliff Jones rose to head home to make it 2-0 on the night, powering home Dyson's cross.  Just five minutes after, Jones' second of the night put Tottenham ahead overall, but the Poles showed just how good they were, when Ernest Pohl struck to make it 5-5 on aggregate with a well-struck 25 yard volley.

A fine first half by our Welsh winger was completed with a 35th minute goal to complete his hat-trick and a diving header from Bobby Smith gave Tottenham a commanding 5-1 lead at half-time.

The action didn't stop in the second half, with goals from Smith (72 minutes), Terry Dyson (73) after being set up by Blanchflower and then John White wrapped up a famous win a minute before full time and the victory sent a warning message to the rest of Europe that Tottenham had quickly adapted to the needs of European football.

13.09.1961 Tottenham's first competitive European tie was a tough one, both in terms of the on-pitch football and the off-pitch culture shock.

The mining town hosted Spurs' debut in the European Cup and at 0-3 down at the interval in this preliminary round first leg tie through goals from Maurice Norman (own goal), Musialek and Wilszek, it looked as grim as the surrounding countryside scarred by the local industry.   With a crowd of a reputed 90-100,000 crowd behind them, the home side shocked Tottenham.

In the opening exchanges, Polish striker Ernest Pohl hit a fierce shot against the bar with Brown beaten, then in the eighth minutes, Jones and Baker allowed Lentner to cross and Musialek touched the ball against Norman and into his own goal.  Musialek volleyed home a second goal in the 20th minute and then Wilszek headed home with five minutes to the break to leave Spurs stunned.

Despite dropping a further goal behind, when Dave Mackay let Pohl slip past him and score past the Tottenham keeper after 47 minutes, the side kicked on and in the latter stages pulled two vital away goals back.  The turning point appeared to come amid boos from the home crowd, when Mackay tackled Kowalski strongly and he had to leave the action.

However, Spurs hit back through Cliff Jones on 70 minutes, as the winger headed home the ball after Mackay's run and cross found his head and then four minutes after, Mackay was the creator again.  His cross was headed into the path of Terry Dyson, who netted a second to give Tottenham something to play for in the second leg.
