Spurs were outstanding at the English national stadium, deconstructing Real with ruthless efficiency.

Kane was the conductor of the band, but it was Alli who stole the show with a double that broke Spanish hearts.

The England internationals were at their best as they linked, and Real’s defence were taken to pieces on multiple occasions.

Alli opened the scoring after 27 minutes, adding his brace shortly after the restart of the second half.

A sweeping move by Kane and Alli opened the door for Eriksen, and the Danish magician found the bottom corner to kill off the match after the hour mark.

Real grabbed a consolation through Ronaldo, but the champions of Spain were second best to the Premier League outfit.

Manchester City join Spurs in the last 16 after beating Napoli 4-2, qualifying from Group F in style.

Lorenzo Insigne had opened the scoring for the Naples team in the first half, but City fought back through goals from Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones.

A penalty from Jorginho kept the match alive, but further strikes from Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling handed City the points.

Liverpool made easy work of Maribor on Merseyside, winning 3-0 to move one step closer to the knockouts.

Mohamed Salah, Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge all found the net in the second half, giving the Reds control of Group E.
