The Battle of Glasgow was a historic match between Celtic and Atlético de Madrid in the semi-final of the 1974 European Cup. The match held at the Celtic Park stadium in Scotland was one of the most controversial and exciting of red and white history.
The 73,000 spectators who filled the stadium knew that one of the keys was the Turkish referee Babacan, who the red and whites hoped would not be intimidated. Seven minutes into the game, Ayala saw the first card of the match, and it would only be the beginning.
People like Luis Aragonés and recently Simeone, both players and coaches of Atletico de Madrid, cemented his legend: feeling and rebellion. Athletics always get up. This has earned them the respect of all the other clubs, making their fans one of the most loyal in all of Spain.
