CHAMPIONS LEAGUE RESULTS | REAL MADRID | SEVILLA FC

Champions League matches continued tonight with the two remaining Spanish Football Clubs scheduled for their Group matches. Here are the final results & goalscorers from both matches.

Tottenham - Real Madrid 2017

TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS defeated REAL MADRID 3 - 1 in Wembley to virtually assure their place in the next stage of the Champions League grabbing top Group spot & opening a 3 point gap with Real Madrid. Real Madrid´s participation in Champions League is not in danger but the Spanish team has entered into a "spiral" of bad play that continues from Liga. The Spaniards may be unhappy with the first Tottenham goal which was offside but the English team was tactically superior & when given space was more efficient with their opportunities at goal.

Real Madrid made plenty of mistakes & looked at times lacking ideas to break a well positioned & more fresh Tottenham. The name tonight that shined was Tottenham youngster DELE ALLI who was quick both with feet & mind & gave the Real Madrid defenders problems, along with some late rough play on Ramos which should have seen a red card. 

Goalscorers:
  • Dele Alli 27th min , 1 - 0
  • Dele Alli 56th min, 2 - 0
  • Erikson 65th min, 3 - 0
  • Cristiano Ronaldo 80th min, 3 - 1
Congratulations to Tottenham well played & won, while Real Madrid enters a "down period" which are not unusual for big teams during the season. Sure Real Madrid will get back soon. 

Prediction: When Zidane´s time as Coach finishes ( this will come at some stage ) his replacement at Real Madrid will be current Tottenham Coach Mauricio Pochettino...

Champions League 2017

SEVILLA FC defeated SPARTAK MOSCOW 2 - 1 in their Group match to keep the Spanish Football flag flying positively compared to the other Spanish Club representatives. Sevilla controlled the match relatively well during the entire game with the Russian being compensated for their efforts with a late goal after putting pressure on Sevilla in the later part. 

Goalscorers:
  • Lenglet 30th min, 1 - 0
  • Benega 60th min, 2 - 0
  • Ze Luis 77th min, 3 - 0
