Mourinho still on track for history

11:37 am on 14 April 2011

Jose Mourinho remains on course to become the first football coach to win the Champions League with three different clubs after Real Madrid beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-nil to seal a 5-nil aggregate win in the quarter-finals.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored one of the softest goals of his career as Mourinho's team set up a titanic semi-final confrontation with arch-rivals Barcelona at the end of the month.

Spurs keeper Heurelho Gomes allowed a long-range Ronaldo shot to bounce out of his hands in the 50th minute and failed to retrieve the ball as it bounced over the line at White Hart Lane.

The Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says his side didn't deserve to be on the end of a 5-nil scoreline....

Real will now meet Barcelona four times in an epic 17-day spell, starting with this weekend's top of the table La Liga clash and next week's King's Cup final.

manchester United will meet Schalke in the other semi-final after the German club completed a 5-2 aggregate win over champions Inter Milan.
