Lyn Oslo’s main concern was that
Rod Belfitt opened the scoring after just six minutes, when he steered in a Terry Hibbitt cross for his first goal of the season. Terry Hibbitt doubled when he netted his first European goal with a snapshot in the twentieth minute and Peter Lorimer dribbled through the Lyn defence only to see his shot blocked and Mick Jones picked up the scraps to make the half-time score 3-0 when he netted on the half-hour. Terry Hibbitt drove in the fourth nine minutes after the restart before Peter Lorimer got the fifth when he thumped the ball into the net from ten yards after sixty-seven minutes to beat the British European record aggregate of 14-0 set in 1962 when they demolished the Matese side Floriana. Rod Belfitt rounded off the scoring three minutes later, after Billy Bremner had opened up the Lyn defence, to make the score 6-0 and 16-0 on aggregate. They were still two goals short of the all-time European record aggregate score of 18-0 by Benfica over Aris of Luxembourg. With steadier finishing United could no doubt have bettered that record but Don Revie was more than happy with his side’s gentle introduction to the European Cup, knowing that the draw for the next round would hand United far tougher opponents. For the poor amateurs of Lyn the misery dragged on and at the end of their season they were relegated.
Rod Belfitt (2), Terry Hibbitt (2) Mick Jones and Peter Lorimer scored the Leeds goals. Harald Berg stood out for Lyn Oslo.
