Wembley Stadium went absolutely bananas as Tottenham took a surprise 3-0 lead over Real Madrid on Tuesday night.
Tuesday, November 1st is a night that most Spurs fans will never forget as Tottenham Hotspur booked their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League with a comprehensive 3-1 win over Real Madrid in what was a crucial game in Group H.
The game’s scoring was opened with a brace from Dele Alli before a third was netted by Christen Eriksen.
Cristiano Ronaldo managed to pull one back late for Los Blancos but it was to be the London club’s night.
Madrid’s weekend was one to forget after a loss to Girona put them eight points behind league leaders Barcelona and now, after another shock defeat, many will feel as though the pressure is mounting on manager Zinedine Zidane.
Real, of course, won the Champions League last year but following this crushing blow to their morale, it will be interesting to see if they will come anywhere close to replicating last season’s feat.
For Tottenham, it was as good a win – in terms of prestige – as they’ve had in some time and one that will provide them with a serious boost in confidence as we move deeper into the 2017/18 season.
