Spurs' evening quickly turns into nightmare

[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Real Madrid's easy 4-0 win over 10-man Tottenham in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal series makes the possibility of a Real Madrid-Barcelona semifinal -- added to Real Madrid-Barcelona matches in La Liga and the Copa del Rey final -- all the more likely.

Spurs' European hopes went up in smoke quickly as Emmanuel Adebayor scored the first of his two goals in the fourth minute and Peter Crouch was sent off in the 15th minute after picking up his second yellow card for lunging at the Real left back Marcelo.

"You need a miracle to play here with 10 men," Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp said. "Better teams than us would have struggled. It was an uphill task, an impossible task. I was disappointed, obviously. That was all we needed to go down to 10 men so early in the game. I haven't spoken to Peter. He's lunged in for the second one and it's cost us dearly. He already had a yellow card and he shouldn't have taken the chance. Madrid have quality players and you need to have 11 players to have any chance to get a result here. It's obvious."
