After the incredible fight
Now having a second chance,
United were no going to pass it up easily, and the lined up in an almost empty Nou Camp Stadium in Barcelona in front of an estimated
10,000 crowd in a 120,000 capacity stadium. The game was played in an eerie
atmosphere with United's travelling
support situated in a small section of the upper tier of one stand.
Jon Newsome had recovered from injury and returned at right-back with David Batty reverting to his usual midfield role.
Super-sub Carl Shutt fired himself into Leeds United folklore with the
winning goal against
In a controlled opening
United seized the initiative with a cracking twenty-five yard effort from
skipper Gordon Strachan. United’s
lead only lasted seven minutes, as Stuttgart midfielder Andre Golke headed home Alexander Strehmel’s
low centre and the match remained deadlocked until fifteen minutes from time
when Howard Wilkinson made an inspired substitution. Carl Shutt
replaced the ineffectual Eric Cantona and within
sixty seconds he was back defending a corner. It was Shutt
that charged down Andreas Buck’s attempted cross and headed the ball to Tony Dorigo and moved up in support, racing towards the
Leeds United Team that started the game against VfB Stuttgart at the Nou Camp Barcelona
