1991–92 (European Cup)

It was the second season of the competition in which the eight second round winners would be split into two groups, with the winner of each one meeting in the final. In addition, a preliminary round was required as this was the first season after the break-up of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia, resulting in many new countries eligible to enter the champions of their own leagues into the competition. Israel and the Faroe Islands were also represented for the first time.

The tournament was won for the first time by Marseille, defeating Milan in the final. However, soon after Marseille's victory allegations of match fixing were levelled at them and their president Bernard Tapie. This involved a league game where Marseille, it emerged, had fixed their title-clinching Division 1 game against Valenciennes so they could concentrate on the Milan tie. It is believed that Tapie bribed Valenciennes to lose so that Marseille would win the French league earlier, giving them more time to prepare for the European Cup final. This resulted in Marseille being stripped of their league title by the French Football Federation (although not the European Cup, as the match in question was not in that competition). They were banned from defending their European title in the 1993–94 season, and contesting the Intercontinental Cup and Super Cup. During the 1995 trial over Marseille's financial accounts, it was revealed that they had an annual budget of Fr5 million (about €760,000) dedicated to the purchase of matches from 1989 to 1993. Although two European Cup matches were purchased that year, the final was not one of these.[1] Barcelona, the defending champions, were eliminated in the second round by CSKA Moscow.

Notes:

  1. ^ Following a 3–0 win at home and a 4–1 defeat away, Stuttgart was originally deemed to have won on away goals with the scores level at 4–4 on aggregate. After video footage of the second leg was reviewed, it was discovered Stuttgart had fielded more than the allowed maximum of three foreign players, meaning the match was awarded to Leeds United with a score of 3–0, making it 3–3 on aggregate with zero difference on away goals. A play-off match in Barcelona was ordered, which Leeds won 2–1.

Group stageEdit

The group stage began on 25 November 1992 and ended on 21 April 1993. The eight teams were divided into two groups of four, and the teams in each group played against each other on a home-and-away basis, meaning that each team played a total of six group matches. For each win, teams were awarded two points, with one point awarded for each draw. At the end of the group stage, the first team in each group advanced to the final.
