Travelling to the Spanish capital to take on the holders of the competition, there was every chance Ronaldo and co could’ve really done a number on Mauricio Pochettino’s side, and the Argentine’s offensive starting line-up was risky to say the least.
But the North London side handled themselves well in the first-half – despite several decent chances for Real’s attackers.
After 29 minutes, Spurs went ahead, with Kane attacking Serge Aurier’s cross to the near-post, and cleverly flicking the ball against Raphael Varane, which ended up sending the ball looping over a helpless Keylor Navas:

It’s definitely going down as an own goal – but it’s fair to say it definitely wouldn’t have happened without Kane’s presence, eh?
Kane remains one of the most under appreciated stars in England, but perhaps his towering performance in one of football’s great cathedrals tonight will help make some fans realise his true quality.
What do you think of the goal, and Kane’s form in general?
