European Cup Finals 1970 - 1979
Play-offs were abandoned for the 1969-70 tournament in favour of away goals with extra time in the second leg if necessary: if scores were still level the winner was decided by the toss of a coin. This method was replaced by the penalty shoot-out in 1970-71 but the final would go still to a replay if drawn after extra time. The balance of power shifted decisively towards northern Europe with Dutch, German and English teams dominant.
