Review:
This was the first of two games played for the Zaragoza Trophy, at Real Zaragoza's ground in Spain. Real Zaragoza beat Volan 2-1 in the other semi meaning we would play the hosts in the final (where we lost on penalties).

There is a review of the game on the elpais.com website in Spanish. Here's the translation (and thanks to Tom Wardle for sending it):

Yesterday, Nottingham Forest were proclaimed finalists of the Zaragoza City Tournament, defeating Osasuna 2-1, despite playing almost the entire match with ten players, due to Burns being sent off. The Navarrese team went ahead on the scoreboard as soon as the second half began, through Martín, but then they accused their physical and technical inferiority against a team that has been European champion twice. Vicuña played for Osasuna; Macua (Teixidó), Mina, Lumbreras, Goñi, Bayona, Dioni, Iriarte (Balín), Echeverría (Azcona), Irguíbel and Martín. Pes Pérez refereed, who sent off Burns, the English midfielder, in the twenty-sixth minute.
