Redknapp urges belief as Tottenham prepare for Real Madrid showdown

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes his side must believe they can get a result tonight in the Champions League quarter final 2nd leg against Real Madrid.

Spurs lost the first leg a week ago 4-0 in Madrid, but Redknapp feels there is no point going into the game expecting defeat. Talking to the club’s official website, Redknapp said:

“Everyone feels that the tie is over but we know that we are a good team and can play well here at White Hart Lane. We know that it would take a miracle but miracles can happen. We have to believe that if we give it our best shot you never know what can happen.

“It will be very difficult obviously. But as long as we play well and give our best shot and everything that we have, I can’t ask for any more.

“It’s a fantastic game to look forward to. We would have liked to have been in a position where we were a lot closer to them but the first leg did not go our way for reasons that we know and have seen.

“But it’s last eight of the Champions League, we’re playing Real Madrid, and I am sure that the fans and players are looking forward to it.”

Tottenham will start the game without striker Peter Crouch, who is suspended after his sending off in the first leg. His place will likely go to Russian forward Roman Pavyluchenko.
