Modric has been a superstar for Real since leaving Spurs in 2012, but last night was not one of his better nights.

Real's form is in a major slump and questions are being asked in Spain about their performances.

Modric admitted it is a big problem for them, but praised former club Spurs.

FourFourTwo reported that Modric told BeIN Sports: "The result was one we did not anticipate and it's tough for us to take but in football these things happen and Spurs deserved the result – they were superior to us.

"It's not a problem with our physicality but we are not playing with form or as we know we can, simply we were just not good enough and we must look for solutions."

Real have slipped to second in their group as a result of the loss, with Tottenham claiming top spot.

Tottenham have qualified for the knockout stages already as Borussia Dortmund were held to a draw by APOEL Nicosia. 

Getting one of on established stars like Modric and Toni Kroos will give Tottenham's players a big lift, and hearing the Croatian admit they were superior will make them feel even better.
