Tottenham suffer Madrid nightmare
Tottenham’s hopes of reaching the Champions League semi-finals were left in tatters as they were beaten 4-0 at Real Madrid in the quarter-final first leg. Peter Crouch was sent off after 15 minutes, when Spurs were already 1-0 down, and they never recovered. Jose Mourinho’s side took the lead after just four minutes when Emmanuel Adebayor, on loan from Manchester City, headed in Mesut Ozil’s corner. Peter Crouch was then booked for a bad tackle and only seven minutes later he was dismissed for a second reckless lunge. Spurs defended well but in the second half Madrid’s numerical advantage told. After 57 minutes Adebayor scored his second, with another header, this time from a Marcelo cross. Angel di Maria then made it three with an excellent strike from distance. Cristiano Ronaldo completed the rout three minutes from time. The former Manchester United winger shot through Heurelho Gomes after receiving substitute Kaka’s cross to the far post. MORE
