Jose Mourinho was aware of the importance of this game against Tottenham Hotspurs, that's why he used his best cards since the very first minute. And his most valuable footballers didn't disappoint him. Real Madrid beat the Spurs 4-0 and almost secured a place in the semifinals.
The first goal scored by Emmanuel Adebayor was the breaking point of the match, and it came very early in the first half. Real Madrid was an unstoppable machine of offensive football, with Ozil, Ronaldo and Adebayor leading the attack.
Peter Crouch's red card was the second factor that helped Madrid demolish their rival. Nothing was in favor of Tottenham at the Santiago Bernabeu. In the second half, Adebayor, Di María and Cristiano Ronaldo completed the result.
