Peter Crouch Says Spurs Can Beat Madrid… As Long As They Don’t Get an “Idiot” Sent Off

Peter Crouch Says Spurs Can Beat Madrid… As Long As They Don’t Get an “Idiot” Sent Off

Peter Crouch was clearly paying close attention to this afternoon’s Champions League draw, as his former club Tottenham were drawn in the same group as holders Real Madrid.

And the Stoke City striker claims Mauricio Pochettino’s side will have an great chance against the La Liga giants… as long as they don’t have an “idiot” sent off during the tie.

The ex-England man was of course referencing the red card he was shown the last time the two teams met, during the quarter-final stage of the competition back in 2011.

Crouch committed two rash challenges within 14 minutes during that game, earning him two quickfire yellow cards which put Spurs firmly under the cosh for the remainder of the match.

Luckily, the 36-year-old is able to joke about it now, as he showed with this comical Tweet:

 

While Spurs are undoubtedly better equiped now than when Madrid thrashed them 4-0 five years ago, it will take an impressive performance from the Premier League side to earn anything against Zinedine Zidane’s men.
