Intertoto Cup - semi-final, second leg

Villarreal 2 - FC Brno 0

Villarreal reached one of the Intertoto cup finals for the second year running after beating FC Brno in their second leg tie. Defending a 1-1 draw from the first leg, the Spaniards were by far the superior side. However it was not until the second minute of injury time that fans could breath a sigh of relief when substitute Sonny Anderson scored his side's second goal. Jorge López had put the locals in front midway through the first half when Belletti set him up. But the Czech side came back after the break, and Dosek almost levelled the tie when he hit the post on the hour mark. Brno were left with ten men though when Schuster was sent off a few minutes later, and with the game coming to an end, Anderson got clear to beat Belic and send his side through to a two leg final with Holland's Heerenveen.
