Tottenham had a torrid time at the Bernabeu. In a night that Spurs needed luck, they got none. Everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong. Adebayor’s brace continued his remarkably good form against the North London club. In his time at Arsenal he scored in every game that the two clubs met. He is certainly a thorn in Tottenham’s side.
But he is not alone. Tottenham have the uncanny knack of getting the best out of opposition players. Be it through a player scoring regularly against Spurs, or a player choosing the Spurs match to return to form after a goal drought. For example, players like Hamilton Ricard and the now retired Dani of West Ham both managed to score against Tottenham despite being average at best. But they didn’t make it on my list.
