|Cristiano Ronaldo scores against Tottenham|
Tottenham did not win tonight but they showed a better performance that should allow them to leave the competition with their heads high. The main player to note from the English side - from both matches - is the impressive BALE who I feel will be on the agenda of many Top European Football Clubs next season.
The English side had some chances & would be not too happy with two situations that "may" have been penalty occasions, but CRISTIANO RONALDO scored the winner in the 50th min with a "power drive" that bent the hands of Tottenham goalkeeper Gomes to allow the ball into the net.
The bad news for Madrid was the yellow card to defender Carvalho who will miss the 1º st leg semi final clash against Barça.
