Here are the scores I know:
19-3 Valencia 2-1 Rampla
22-3 RCD Espanyol 1-1 Rampla (Espanyol won Trofeo Vermut Martini on corners)
10-4 Luton Town 0-0 Rampla
11-4 Portsmouth 1-3 Rampla

18-4 QPR 0-0 Rampla
19-4 Watford 4-3 Rampla
23-4 Mansfield Town 2-3 Rampla
25-4 Southampton 1-0 Rampla

According to wikipedia, their opponents on the tour were:
In Brazil : Santa Cruz FC, Sport Recife
In Spain : Valencia, Espanyol
In France : Toulouse, Burnley (?)
in Germany : Nurnberg, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt
in England : as above
in Denmark : vs Denmark national team, and "Alliancen" (probably Staevnet)
in Israel : vs national team and Jaffa
in Turkey vs Besiktas and Ankara
