It seems fitting that 25 years on from Celtic’s historic victory over Inter Milan in Lisbon, European football’s biggest prize is coming back to Glasgow. Of course, Glasgow’s links with the European Cup began well before the Lisbon Lions came to glory. Back in 1960, Hampden Park played host to the final to end all finals: Real Madrid versus Eintracht Frankfurt. The Spanish giants claimed the trophy in a ten-goal thriller, seven of which went in their favour.

Q/E'R /'\

History has a habit of repeating itself and the 2002 final will see eight- times winners Real back in action against a German side, this time Bayer Leverkusen. Of course it’s not quite the glamour clash football fans might have hoped for bad Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United been in the frame - Sebastian Veron, hang your head in shame - but with names such as Figo, Carlos and Zidane still in the picture, it’s hard to feel too aggrieved.

Realistically, the ordinary punter has a better chance of seeing Roy Keane cheering on the German side than they have of stumbling across a ticket. Briefs were snapped up months ago, so, like most Glaswegians, you’ll have to make do with the box. With tens of thousands of Spaniards and Germans descending on the city, our advice is to make like a tourist and head out to city centre pubs to lap up the electric atmosphere.

The final is expected to be worth around £20m to the local economy, and with the eyes of the world firmly focused on Glasgow, Scotland’s hopes of hosting Euro 2008 rest on a hitch-free outcome. Let’s hope the much- maligned Hampden pitch stands up to the scrutiny.

Real are favourites to be crowned European champions for the ninth time, in this, their centenary year (go to www.betdaddy.com for a virtual flutter). As a nation of footballing underdogs, it seems only right that we should spare a thought for Leverkusen. After all, the chances of Celtic or Rangers ever getting this far in the competition seems more like fantasy

football every year. (Maureen Ellis)
