A footballing lesson was taught last night at the Bernabeu stadium last night, as Tottenham were well and truly beaten and are basically out of the Champions League. It was bad from start to end really as Aaron Lennon was taken ill minutes before the kick off which blew their game plan out the window. Then going 1-0 down to an ex Arsenal player wouldn’t have gone down well with the Spurs fans. But they were then let down by one of their most experienced and reliable players in Crouch. Two silly fouls equals two yellows which as we know is a red. From then on Madrid controlled the game and it was a matter of how many. Ronaldo move into the middle, Marcelo boomed down the left wing and Adebayor had his best game in a Madrid shirt. It will be a impossible task to come back from 4-0 down, even more with a Mourinho side, he won’t park the bus, a Real Madrid never do but he is more than capable of putting out a team to see out this tie.
In the other game Inter Milan were also given a beating by a Schalke side that are 10th in the Bundesliga. Three second half goals have basically put them in the semi-finals for the first time in their history. Inter did score probably the goal of the campaign:
But it will be very hard for the holders to make it through. Tonight’s game between Chelsea and Manchester United will be a tight affair. United lost on their last visit to the Bridge, but this time it looks like Ferdinand will play and Rooney will look to make more headlines. I can see United scoring, but Chelsea wining the game. My prediction is 2-1. In the other game Barcelona play Shakhtar I can’t see anything more than a home win I’m going for 3-0.
