Match summary

It represented a huge success in his first season as manager for Tony Barton. He had only taken over as Villa boss before the quarter-finals after the shock resignation of Villa boss Ron Saunders.

Brian Moore's commentary from the winning goal of Aston Villa's 1982 European Cup win over Bayern Munich is displayed on a giant banner across the North Stand of Villa Park:

Shaw, Williams, prepared to adventure down the left. There's a good ball in for Tony Morley. Oh, it must be! It is! Peter Withe
Cup final ticket

As defending European champions Villa were invited into the European Cup, European Super Cup and World Club Cup for the following season. Their defence of the European Cup ended in a quarter-final defeat to a Michel Platini-inspired Juventus F.C.. They beat FC Barcelona 3-1 on aggregate to win the Super Cup, but lost 2-0 to Uruguay club Penarol for the Intercontinental Cup in Tokyo, Japan.
