Ten-man Tottenham's Champions League challenge was all but ended after they suffered a comprehensive 4-0 defeat to Real Madrid in the first leg of their quarter-final tie at the Bernabeu.

Former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor returned to haunt Spurs with a brace while Angel Di Maria and Cristiano Ronaldo were also on the scoresheet as Harry Redknapp's men struggled badly following the early sending off of Peter Crouch.

The England striker was booked twice in the opening 15 minutes and nine-time European Champions Madrid took full advantage to move a giant step closer to the semi-finals.
