EUROPEAN CUP
 1967/68  Results

For the first time the away goals rule came into being - where clubs finished equal on aggregate the club scoring the most away goals would progress. However the rule only applied to the first two rounds - a third match would still be played in the Quarter and Semi finals should the aggregate score be level.
