Intertoto Cup - third round, second leg

Slovan Liberec 2 - Racing Santander 1

Racing Santander dropped out of the Intertoto cup after losing 2-1 at Slovan Liberec. Already trailing from the first leg, the Cantabrians went further behind when Kolousek ran through the defence to chip keeper Borja late in the first half. Txiki gave them hope when he ran on to Benayoun's back-heel to score after the break, but Matabuena got himself sent off later on and Zapotocny headed the winner soon afterwards. Racing ended the game with nine men after Txiki picked up a second yellow card near the end.

Brescia 1 - Villarreal 1

Villarreal qualified for the semi-finals with relative ease after drawing 1-1 at Brescia. Defending a two goal lead from the first leg, Benito Floro's side went further ahead early in the second half when new signing José Marí set up Guayre to score. The Italians pulled one back in the last minute when Petruzzi beat López Vallejo following a corner, but by then it was all over. The Spaniards go on to play Czech side FC Brno in their semi-final, with the first leg away next Wednesday evening. (26.07.03)
