Spurs ace Jan Vertonghen spoke exclusively to the club's official website ahead of his side's huge clash with Real Madrid in the Champions League tonight, and shared how he and his teammates realised something very important, after analysing their game against Los Blancos at the Bernabeu.

Tottenham were more than a match for Real, from start to finish, and despite having more than enough chances to actually win the game, they eventually had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

That was seen as a fine result for the Lilywhites, however, and Mauricio Pochettino received high praise for the manner in which he set his side up to take the game to the European champions.
