The team tried to daze Tottenham Hotspur as soon as possible, but good defending helped Tottenham from conceding an early goal.

Tottenham controlled the mid-part of the first-half. An attacking play by the home side paid off when they scored a goal in the 27th minute with the help of Dele Alli. The goal gave Tottenham a one-goal lead in the first-half.

Real Madrid tried to find an equalizer before ending the first-half, but their attacks couldn’t find a way through the Tottenham’s defense. The first-half ended with a 1-0 lead by Tottenham over the defending champions.

Tottenham scored the second goal of the game in the 56th minute. The first goal scorer, Dele Alli, again scored the goal and gave his team a two-goal lead. Real Madrid looked totally lost.

In the 65th minute, Tottenham again got a goal as Christian Eriksen scored and gave his team a comfortable three-goal lead. The third goal sealed the deal for the home side.

The defending champions finally scored their first goal in the closing minutes. Cristiano Ronaldo helped his team to reduce the three-goal deficit to two goals.

The home side kept the defending champions at bay for the rest of the game to secure a 3-1 win. Tottenham Hotspur is now on the top of the group with three wins and zero losses. Real Madrid is second with seven points.

Real Madrid boss, Zinedine Zidane, could be in trouble if his team continues to underperform. The manager won the Champions League and the La Liga last season, but this season, he's been failing to reflect his management skills.
