"It was one of those days where anything that could have gone wrong did go wrong."

The loss means the Londoners need to create a huge upset to avoid going out of the competition in the second leg at White Hart Lane but while Redknapp knows the odds are stacked against them, he refused to concede the tie is over.

"Well, it's going to be very difficult. It certainly couldn't be much more difficult than being 4-0 down to Real Madrid but we're at home, we'll give it a go," added Redknapp.

Spurs winger Gareth Bale insists the North London club can overturn the 4-0 deficit at White Hart Lane on 13 April and reach the semi-finals.

"We have to play at our best, stop their best players and score goals at White Hart Lane. It's going to be a difficult task, everyone knows that, but I still think it's possible," the 21-year-old said.

"We are not going to sit back and take another beating from them in the second leg. Hopefully we will win and hopefully that win will be enough.

"Anything can happen. We will be ready for them."

After struggling in the opening stages, Tottenham looked to have played their way back into the game, keeping the score down to 1-0 down as they went in at half-time.

But after the break, the nine-time European champions were dominant and exploited their numerical advantage to the full.

"To get to half-time like we did, I thought we could hang in there and would have a chance but then our legs ran out a bit," Redknapp explained.

Tottenham captain Michael Dawson echoed his managers' comments.

"After going down to 10 men early on it was so difficult," he said. "We defended well after giving the early goal away, we got blocks in.

"To give another goal away was disappointing and then they scored two top-class goals.

"The White Hart Lane faithful will be there next Wednesday and we've got to go out and give it our all."
