Spurs looked out of their depth from the outset as the Spanish giants struck early through former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor before Crouch was shown a second yellow card for another poor challengeg.
Gomes admits that the England striker tackled like a ‘novice’ but said that nobody involved with the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club should blame him for the loss.
“In the second leg we need to be more careful. If you challenge like a novice at the start of the game, it is hard," the Brazilian said.
"We need to think about it (our discipline) because it is not the first time. At half-time, Peter said sorry to everyone but we do not blame him.
"It is not just his fault. He has been so important for us this season. We just need to move on now."
