This time, for sure, Real Madrid is going through its most hard and difficult period since the arrival of Zinedine Zidane on the bench in January 2016. down to eight points behind Barcelona the leader in La Liga after their defeat (1-2) Sunday in Girona, the Merengues fell again (1-3) vs Tottenham last night in the Champions League. After a complicated start, the Spurs gradually regained their power by doing what they do best: a high defense line to try to recover the ball in dangerous areas and fast passes to Dele Alli and Harry Kane, very comfortable to hold the ball against Madrilenian defenders often late. The scorer of the Three Lions missed a first opportunity (11th) before Alli scored the first a goal who is said to be by an offside position.

Real Madrid reacted quickly, helped by the tottering caused by the exit on injury of Toby Alderweireld (24), causing Eric Dier to go down in central defense while Moussa Sissoko took place in the middle. But Casemiro (29th) and Cristiano Ronaldo (32nd, 33rd) stumbled on Hugo Lloris who has been great in this start to the season. In the second half, Alli doubled the advantage of his own (56th) before launching a counter-attack concluded by Christian Eriksen on an assist from Kane (65th). Cristiano Ronaldo's scored (80th) a well deserved goal considering the number of Spanish shots (20 against 11 for the English), but the final result is tells what everyone thinks of the game: Tottenham was superior in the commitment and the precision of its offensive movements. Real now has three points behind the Spurs, already qualified, and no longer has his destiny in hands to try to win the first place in Group H.
