Tottenham had everyone on the edges of their seats when they held Real Madrid to a dramatic 1-1 at the Bernabeu two weeks ago.
Spurs perfectly exemplified the recent resurgence of English sides in the Champions League with a spirited performance from goalkeeper to frontline.
It did no favours in the expectations department for the return leg, however, as Los Blancos maded their first trip to Wembley Stadium.
And the last visitors to England's national stadium were dealt a harsh 90 minutes with Liverpool slumping to a 4-1 win that saw Harry Kane at his finest.
Furthermore, Real Madrid have been blighted with tumultuous from in La Liga with Barcelona pulling out an eight point lead after their demoralising 2-1 defat at Girona.
There wasn't much more to cheer in the first half in London, either.
Tottenham completely dictated play and took the lead after 27 minutes as Harry Winks and Kieran Trippier combined to find Dele Alli at the far post.
Real will take optimism from the fact Toby Alderweireld hobbled off with a suspected hamstring injury but they continued to look blunt in attack.
And Casemiro managed to sum up the visitor's night with a truly bizarre moment with Winks.
Having suffered the slightest of contacts on his shoulder, the Brazilian took the entire season to fall to the ground and Twitter rinsed him for it - check it out:
Take a look at the reaction below:
Forget how to walk there, mate?
That being said, Casemiro went down so slowly that he won't have retrospective diving bans to worry about.
At the time of writing, though, he has plenty of other worries.
