Watch: Mousa Dembele and Sergio Ramos’ heated battle in Spurs win


Altercations between footballers tend to be pretty embarrassing these days but Mousa Dembele and Sergio Ramos had a decent bust-up judging by modern standards during Tottenham’s 3-1 victory over Real Madrid.

Spurs produced an excellent performance to surge into a 3-0 lead against the current Champions League holders thanks to Dele Alli’s brace and Christian Eriksen’s calm finish.

The Spanish champions eventually pulled a goal back through Cristiano Ronaldo but frustration started to get the better of Zinedine Zidane’s men.

Ramos and Dembele first clashed on the touchline, with both players getting in a cheeky elbow – hardly 21-man brawl stuff.

The two later collided in a 50-50 challenge, although Dembele missed both the ball and Ramos with a wild kick which only earned the midfielder a yellow card.

We’re not going to lie though, it was funny.
