Champions League Group H, Wembley Stadium - Tottenham 3 (Alli 27', 56', Eriksen 65') Real Madrid 1 (Ronaldo 80')


Dele Alli scored a brace as Tottenham secured their progress from Champions League Group H with a memorable, emphatic 3-1 win over Real Madrid at Wembley.
Real started brightly in the first five minutes but from then onwards Spurs controlled the match. They ruffled the feathers of Real and the European champions were all over the place, uncharacteristically sloppy when in possession and slow going forward.
They deservedly went behind when Nacho was caught sleeping by Harry Kane, who was fit enough for just under 80 minutes, and having won the throw Spurs switched the play to the excellent Kieran Trippier, whose cross was turned in by Alli.
He doubled their lead in the second-half when the Real defence and midfield left him totally unmarked, before his shot went in off Sergio Ramos.
Christian Eriksen made it three later in the second half with Real Madrid a complete and utter shambles at the back whilst a consolation goal from Cristiano Ronaldo with 10 minutes to spare was little more than that.
As good as Spurs were, and they were excellent, there have to be alarm bells going off for Zinedine Zidane. For the second time in less than a week, his team of Champions League winners were completely outplayed, first by Girona and now Spurs.
They are likely to go through, but it will probably be as runners-up and there is big work to do. For Spurs, all they can do is keep on dreaming.

Why would Mauricio Pochettino ever leave this incredible Spurs adventure?
In Spain before the game at the Bernabeu the talk was how Real were keen on signing Kane, before this match the talk was of Pochettino as a possible replacement for Zidane, something you can expect to ramp up after this result. But why on earth would Pochettino ever leave? He has arguably the most exciting young squad in Europe. The perfect combination of experienced, yet underrated stalwarts and a couple of genuine superstars. There's more and more young talent coming through and a brand new stadium on the horizon. The grass is not always greener Mauricio...
