Tottenham's unforgettable Champions League adventure ultimately ended with a whimper as another howler from Heurelho Gomes handed Real Madrid a 1-0 victory at White Hart Lane.

Trailing 4-0 from last week's quarter-final first leg, Spurs tried to prove the return match was anything but a dead rubber and saw three first-half penalty appeals snubbed by referee Nicola Rizzoli.

Cristiano Ronaldo rubbed salt into the wound when Gomes spilt the forward's 30-yard strike into his own net early in the second half as Madrid set up a mouthwatering semi-final against Barcelona.
