Yes. The quality of the second tier teams in Spain is higher than the rest of Europe. That can be seen by how close the league is and the fact that they have 3 semi finalists in the UEFA cup. The quality of the best Premieship teams is greater than the rest of Europe resulting in a two horse race for the league most seasons and the fact that they have 3 semi finalists in the Champions League.

Spurs actually play some of the most exciting football in the EPL. They produce some great goals via Aaron Lennon, Robbie Keane, and Dimitar Berbatov (3 top International players). Take Chelsea for a counter-example : a 500 million pound team of counterattacks and wing crosses. Absolutely boring to watch.
Sevilla are a tough, exciting side with quality passing and inventiveness. Their star goalscorer developed his craft at White Hart Lane. They were gifted some fouls in excellent positions in the first leg. (How can a team get no yellow cards over a two-leg quarterfinal?)
Osasuna is just so powerful on the ball. They've been my favorites to win it all along.
