Real Madrid returned to their ruthless best on Tuesday when Emmanuel Adebayor struck twice in a 4-0 drubbing of 10-man Tottenham Hotspur as the Spanish giants seized control of their Champions League quarter-final.

Real, making their first appearance in the last eight since 2004, strolled past debutants Spurs after the 15th-minute dismissal of England striker Peter Crouch gave the home side's quest for a 10th European Cup crown a major boost.

"Eleven against 10 at this level is mission impossible," said Mourinho who won the Champions League with Inter Milan last season and with Porto in 2004.
