Review:
This was the 3rd/4th place playoff for the 1983 Townsend Thoresen Tournament. After losing 4-5 on penalties to Brugge in the previous round we now faced Real Zaragoza, but lost 2-1 to finish last. For some consolation, PSV (the hosts) beat Brugge 5-0 in the final.

Stats:
RSSSF lists the lineup as Sutton, Anderson, McKechnie, Gunn, Smalley,, Walsh, Daverport, Wallace, Murray (Hodge), Birtles, Wilson (Wigley) which is different that the lineup that Ken Smales has in his book
