Prior to this season, the teams had only only played one another in a competitive matchup, in the quarterfinals of the 1979–80 European Cup. In front of a sold-out crowd of 67,000 people, Celtic won 2-0 in the first leg at Parkhead.
George McCluskey and Johnny Doyle’s goals in the second half, both of which were assisted by right-back Alan Sneddon, gave the Hoops a commanding lead; however, a contentious penalty decision cost Tom McAdam another goal. Prior to Real regaining the lead just before halftime when Santilla scored from close range after Peter Latchford missed Laurie Cunningham’s corner, McCluskey squandered an early opportunity in the second leg at the Bernabau. Real advanced thanks to goals from Uli Stielike and Jaunito in the second half.
The first encounter of this season, which took place in September, saw Celtic dominate early on, but they were unable to capitalize, and Real outplayed them at Parkhead to win 3-0.
