Apr. 20th
(2nd leg)

Bologna - Olympique Marseille
Bologna were only a couple of minutes away from a place in the UEFA Cup Final, when Laurent Blanc equalised for Olympique Marseille from the penalty spot. Because the first leg was goaless, the French away goal was doubly important.

To add to their misseries, the Italians had Marocchi sent off in the 89th minute.

Even with five minutes of injury time to play, Signori couldn't get the winner -- Porato must have made the save of his life, in the dying minutes of this game, to deny the blond Italian.

Captain Michele Paramatti fired in the the home side's goal in the 17th minute, after an earlier Bologna goal had been ruled offside.

No UEFA cup final for two Italian teams this year. Olympique Marseille will travel to Moscow as one of two finalists on 12th May.


Parma - Atlético Madrid
Parma took the early initiative with a 35th minute goal by Balbo, and effectively forced Atlético Madrid to score four if they wanted to travel to Russia in May.

In the 63rd minute Roberto headed home to level the scores, but the team from Spain had too much to do.

Chiesa put Moscow beyond their reach with Parma's second of the night in the 85th minute; taking the goal difference to 5-2 in the process.

The UEFA Cup Final will be between Parma and Olympique Marseille, on May 12th.
