SENSATIONAL SPURS DESTROY REAL MADRID 3-1
If there was any other proof needed that Real Madrid are in a mini-crisis Yesterday night must have been just that. 8 points Behind Barcelona in La liga, Lost to Girona and Now back to back have also Lost to Tottenham Hotspurs in humiliating Fashion in the Champions League.
There is no bigger stage, no better place than Wembley, to play a game of football as seductive, as irresistible, as the one Spurs played last night. They beat the European champions 3-1 under the famous lights of Wembley and still had something left in the locker at the end.
Dele Alli scors for spurs
Whatever your allegiance, let Spurs have their moment you can’t take it from them they played a blinder,
At times Mauricio Pochettino’s players looked like they had re-invented the sport.
This was a delicious, decisive victory against one of the best club sides in the history of football.
Dele Alli, back in a Champions League shirt for Spurs after serving a three game suspension, was exceptional.
He scored twice and then played a part in the sweeping move that led to Christian Eriksen drilling their third beyond Kiko Casilla.
This was a special, spine-tingling performance from Spurs.
It is also a win for the purists, the people who come to football’s temple to watch the ball pinged across the surface at supersonic speeds.
Tottenham did that at bedazzling, bewildering, speeds at times.
Real Madrid, Champions League winners in each of the past two seasons, have run their race.
Spurs made Real look like old men out there.
The humiliation of Casemiro, leaving the midfielder floundering on edge of the penalty area on the way to scoring the second, was mesmerising.
It was Spurs at their magnificent, dreamy best.
Zidane looked confused the entire night.
They lure you in with their pretty passing patterns and tantalising first touches.
Real Madrid are supposed to come alive in this competition, moving through the gears in the group stage before the annual assault after their winter break.
Zizou and the rest of the gang caught a cold here.
Cristiano looked isolated and frustrated.
The only thing he won last night was the record for the number of step-overs he could pull off without actually doing anything of note.
Instead the show-boating was left to Spurs.
Jan Vertonghen’s first half recovery tackle on the Ballon d’or winner, wrapping a boot around the Real Madrid forward had shades of Beckenbauer about it.
Spurs simply had the upper hand in every area of the pitch.
