Bordeaux Topples AC Milan From UEFA Cup

LONDON -- Girondins Bordeaux has produced the upset of the season in the European cups by overturning AC Milan's 2-0 first leg advantage to bounce the Italians out of the UEFA Cup with a 3-0 victory.


Christophe Dugarry scored twice in the second half after Didier Tholot had given the French team a 15th minute lead Tuesday. The result was even more remarkable because Bordeaux places in the bottom half of the French standings and Milan is running away with the much tougher Italian Serie A.


France's premier, Alain Juppe, who is also mayor of Bordeaux, attended the match and was overjoyed with the victory. "I'm voiceless. They really played like gods. We are just happy,'' Juppe said. "They really deserved the victory.''


Dugarry was ecstatic. "Winning 3-0 against the great Milan team; it's incredible,'' he said. "If we won tonight, it's thanks to our solidarity.''


In other UEFA Cup games, Bayern Munich scored a 5-1 victory at Nottingham Forest to advance 7-2 overall.


And 10-man Barcelona snapped a 2-2 scoreline and 4-4 aggregate to score a winner through midfielder Sergi 11 minutes from the end. The 3-2 victory at PSV Eindhoven after defender Miguel Angel Nadal had been expelled put the Spanish club into the last four 5-4 overall.


An extra time goal by substitute forward Jiri Vavra meant Slavia Prague lost 3-1 at Roma but still advanced to the last four on the away goals rule.


Roma canceled out Slavia's 2-0 first leg advantage during regulation time and the players went into overtime in the Olympic stadium.


Francesco Moriero made it 3-0 to Roma but Vavra's goal seven minutes from the end of extra time meant Slavia went through.


In Thursday's Cup Winners Cup play, holder Real Zaragoza will welcome countrymen Deportivo de La Coruna, who cross Spain with a 1-0 lead.


Italy's Parma hopes to stay on course for its fourth European final in as many years by holding on to its 1-0 advantage over Paris Saint Germain, Rapid Vienna has a similar lead over Dinamo Moscow while Feyenoord and Borussia Moenchengladbach are tied 2-2.


Bordeaux 3 AC Milan 0 (aggregate 3-2). The Italian club was missing stars Marco Simone, Dejan Savicevic and midfielder Zvonimir Boban but welcomed back Liberian star striker George Weah, who missed the 2-0 victory in Milan.


Didier Tholot slid the ball home from four years after 15 minutes after Bordeaux had outmaneuvered the Milan defense with some wing-to-wing passing.


The second goal had a little help from the referee when a free kick deflected off the official to Dugarry who shot home from 15 yards.


Dugarry put Bordeaux up 3-0 with a goal from just inside the penalty area in the 70th minute.


PSV Eindhoven 2 Barcelona 3 (aggregate 4-5). Barcelona took the lead when Jose Maria Bakero smashed the ball home in the second minute after PSV defender Phillip Cocu had flicked a long throw-in to him.


Luis Filipe Madeira "Figo'' made it 2-0 in the 22nd after Romanian midfielder Gheorghe Hagi had crossed.


A minute before half time, Cocu beat four defenders before slipping the ball to Boudewijn Zender who scored for PSV.


Miguel Angel Nadal was sent off in the 57th for wrestling with PSV's Renee Eijkelkamp and the Dutch team leveled seven minutes later. Belgian international Luc Nilis crossed from the right and Eijkelkamp tapped in.


In the 79th minute Sergi sprinted with the ball from his own half and slammed a shot against keeper Ronald Waterreus before scoring on the rebound


Roma 3 Slavia Prague 1 (aggregate 3-3, Slavia advances on away goals.) Following a goalless first half Franceso Moriero opened the scoring with a powerful right drive from 20 yards.


Captain Giuseppe Giannini evened the first leg score with a precise header on a free kick by midfielder Francesco Statuto with eight minutes left of normal time.


Moriero's second goal after nine minutes of extra time was on a fast counterattack fed by young Francesco Dotti and looked to be enough to put Roma through. But Jiri Vavra punished a defensive lapse by Brazilian Aldair to shoot Slavia's first on the night and snatched a semifinal place for the Czechs.


Nottingham Forest 1 Bayern Munich 5 (aggregate 2-7.) After Forest had missed two early chances, Christian Ziege fired home from 30 yards from a free kick situation in the 29th minute.


Two minutes before the break, Thomas Strunz drove in the second from 20. Juergen Klinsmann made it 3-0 with an acrobatic volley after his header had been cleared off the line and Jean-Pierre Papin headed home a center from close range with 18 minutes still to go.


In the 79th, Klinsmann ran clear of the Forest defense again to round goalkeeper Mark Crossley and tap in the fifth. Steve Stone's reply just before the end was simply consolation for Forest.
