Schalke 04 stunned the Champions League holders Inter Milan in their San Siro fortress on Tuesday night playing rousing comeback football. Schalke went behind in the first minute, but at half time it was two goals apiece, and the writing was already on the wall for the Italians, who crumbled in the second half to lose 5-2. Their Champion’s League campaign appears over.
In Madrid, Real gave Spurs a lesson, pinning the London side back, who played most of the match with 10 men after Peter Crouch received two early yellow-card. A double strike from Emmanuel Adebayor and goals from Angel Di Maria and Ronaldo means Spurs will have to score five and conceded none in the return leg to go through.
