P1020325

Hungarian Champions Ferencvaros, travelled to Leeds for the second round first leg of the European Cup. They returned to Hungary with a strong suspicion that they will take no further part after the second leg. Leeds played with strength, confidence and precision. The final score, 3-0, does not truly indicate how dominant the Elland Road side were.
