Should Spurs have beaten Real Madrid?
Everyone connected to Tottenham seemed absolutely delighted with the 1-1 draw at Real Madrid.
All the goals came in the first half as Raphael Varane’s own goal was levelled up by a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty.
A fascinating game sets up the second match between Spurs and Real Madrid at Wembley on November 1, 2017.
Who will finish top of Group H?
With Borussia Dortmund seemingly out the running for a top two finish, the Wembley encounter will likely decide who finishes top of Group H.
Last season, Real Madrid finished second in their group and still went onto win it.
But, Tottenham may think differently. Not only due to the morale boost of coming top and ahead of two European giants.
And, since they also will avoid some of the tougher teams in the knockout rounds by coming first.
Harry Kane v Keylor Navas
Whilst Hugo Lloris was hailed for his brilliant save from Karim Benzema, arguably the most important stops came from Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.
The Costa Rica goalkeeper made a fine stop from Harry Kane in the first half.
And, late on Kane saw a guilt-edged chance stopped by Navas which essentially ensured that Real Madrid held on for a point.
Either side of half-time, Real Madrid dominated the Champions League match. However in the latter stages Tottenham came into the game.
Fernando Llorente set up both Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen for chances that would have won the match.
“Great save my friend”
After the draw, Harry Kane came through the Mixed Zone and walked into Keylor Navas.
Kane said: “Great save my friend” as he squeezed Navas’ shoulder.
Navas replied: “Thank you my friend”.
Roll on the Wembley match for the second instalment of Harry Kane v Keylor Navas.
