Tottenham produced an impressive performance at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night to move one step closer to the Champions League knockout rounds.
Mauricio Pochettino's side took the lead through a Raphael Varane own goal before Cristiano Ronaldo equalised from the penalty spot.
Tottenham's in-form striker Harry Kane came inches from scoring the winner in the second half but was denied by a sublime Keylor Navas save.
The 24-year-old English international has netted a whopping 43 goals in 2017 and is beginning to get mentioned in the same breath as Ronaldo, Leo Messi and Neymar.
Kane's impressive goalscoring exploits have led to speculation linking him with Real Madrid - and Karim Benzema's poor performance against Spurs will only fuel the 'Los Blancos' interest.
Benzema, who has only one La Liga goal to his name this season, missed a number of great chances against Spurs.
What Kane said to Navas
Hugo Lloris made a string of fine saves but the save of the night was undoubtedly made by Real Madrid's Costa Rican stopper.
Kane was through on goal and looked certain to score but Navas somehow got down to tip Kane's goalbound finish round the post.
Spanish TV station 'Jugones La Sexta' captured the moment in which the Tottenham striker bumped into the Madrid keeper after the game.
Kane showed his class, tapping the keeper on the shoulder and praising him for the "great saves", to which Navas responded "Thank you my friend, bye bye". Watch the video below.
They will meet again in two weeks time when Tottenham host Real Madrid in the return fixture on November 1st.
“I’m really proud and so happy," said Pochettino after the game. "Everybody wanted to compete and show ourselves that we can compete at this level. I am so happy.
“The performance was fantastic. I congratulate everyone because it was very good and of course our fans were fantastic, unbelievable and [I say] thank you so much for the support and the help. It was unbelievable.
“Always I tell the players it’s a game to enjoy – play, run, feel free, try to play because [when] you play in that level it’s our dream, always, from when we started three years ago, to play in the Champions League, against Real Madrid and in the Bernabeu. Football is about enjoying."
