Sergio Ramos has warned Tottenham that they face a Real Madrid backlash at the Bernabeu.
Madrid lost 1-0 to Sporting Gijon on Saturday night, which was their first home defeat of the season.
“After the defeat against Sporting Gijon it’s difficult for us to win La Liga, so the Champions League becomes our obligation,” he said.
“It is impossible for us to fail at this stage, in the quarter-finals.
“We ended the match against Sporting very unhappy, but now we have a chance to change the situation. We are focused on Tottenham.
“People say Real are the big favourites in this round, but in the quarter-finals nobody writes off their rivals. Tottenham are tough opponents, but if we don’t beat Spurs and go through, it will be a disaster.”
