Tottenham are within touching distance of the Champions League knockout stages after drawing 1-1 with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Spurs' vocal travelling support had every right to be proud of their side holding their own against the 12-time European champions.

Harry Kane tricked Raphael Varane into putting the ball into his own net to put the visitors 1-0 up after 28 minutes.

With Mauricio Pochettino's men in dreamland, they were pegged back shortly before half-time after Serge Aurier's foolish challenge on Toni Kroos inside the box.

The referee pointed to the spot and Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't miss many from 12 yards.

After all, this was billed as the battle of CR7 vs Kane. It's quite incredible that the pair are being spoken about in the same breath, but such have been the Tottenham striker's achievements.

In 2017, the England international has three more goals (36) than the four-time Ballon d'Or (33) winner at club level.

It's fair to say both forwards had chances to win it on the night, so maybe a point apiece was a just result. While the Spanish media have been raving about Kane in the build-up to the game, they won't have been surprised by Ronnie's moments of individual brilliance.

However, the Portuguese did lack a cutting edge at times, denied on more than one occasion by the genius of Hugo Lloris.

Ronaldo's no-look pass 

During one Real attack, he tried to fool Toby Alderweireld with a no-look pass. Not many people get past the Belgian, especially not like this:

What is he doing?!

On a more positive note for Ronaldo, he and Kane are now toe-to-toe as this season's top scorers in Europe with five goals each. And just because people love to compare them, Lionel Messi has two so far.

There has been nothing between Spurs and Real in the group stages, as they have both beaten APOEL 3-0 and Borussia Dortmund 3-1.

The latest rounds of results leaves both looking likely to escape the alleged Group of Death quite comfortably. A testament to Tottenham's character, and at the same time a reminder of just how difficult Madrid are to get past.

What did you make of Real's draw with Spurs? Have your say in the comments.
