A brilliant, mature performance saw us hold our own in the Bernabeu and share the spoils with Champions League holders Real Madrid on Tuesday night.
In an open, exciting game between two teams with identical records in Group H, we weathered Real's early dominance and took the lead through Raphael Varane's own goal but then allowed the hosts a route back into the game with a penalty that Cristiano Ronaldo needed no second invitation to bury shortly before half-time.
But any hopes Real had of turning the contest around were dashed by an outstanding defensive performance in the second period. Our back five resisted attacks from all angles with Davinson Sanchez shining bright at the heart of it all and behind them, Hugo Lloris pulled off a string of great saves, including a stunner to deny Karim Benzema from point-blank range in a move reminiscent of his goal-line stop at Bayer Leverkusen this time last year.
And we could feasibly have won it, Keylor Navas somehow getting the slightest of touches on Harry Kane's shot and then palming wide from Christian Eriksen.
Danny Rose marked his return from a near nine-month injury lay-off in the latter stages as we managed the game well to maintain our unbeaten run in the competition ahead of another showdown with the Spanish giants at Wembley in a fortnight's time.
