    Since we've already looked back at the programmes from the first and second round home ties of our European Cup run in '62, we may as well continue and look at Dundee's programme from our 2-1 win over Anderlecht in the Quarter Final of that tournament.

    We went into this match on the back of an excellent victory against the Belgian champions Anderlecht in the Heysel Stadium. Such was the demand and interest in this tie, Anderlecht decided to move from their home ground Émile Versé Stadium to the National stadium which seen 64,000 supporters attend the game.

    A double from Alan Gilzean and strikes from Alan Cousin and Gordon Smith gave the Dee a comfortable 4-1 lead to take back to Scotland.

    The return tie at Dens Park a week later seen a 40,000-sell-out crowd turn up to cheer on the day to a potential Semi-final place in the prestigious European Cup.

    Anderlecht started proceedings the hungrier team an eventually took the lead just before the half hour mark when their talisman Jack Stockman slotted home.

    The second half seen Dundee settle into the game and slowly start to pressure the Belgium champions as they tried to make a breakthrough which they eventually did.

    Alan Cousin levelled the scoring with just over ten minutes left to go to ease the relief that had settled into the Dens Park crowd then with eight minutes left, Gordon Smith's goal meant that Anderlecht's European journey was over and the game would end in a 2-1 win for the Dee, 6-2 on aggregate.

    Dundee were in the Semi-Final's along with huge names such as Benfica, Feyenoord and AC Milan. Imagine saying that in this day and age?

    Of course, we would be drawn against the Italian Champions AC Milan for a place in the European Cup Final and the chance to lift the trophy at Wembley Stadium.

    We will look at that programme from the AC Milan game next week but in the meantime, I hope you've enjoyed another edition of 'Dundee Programmes From The Past.'
