Ajax Amsterdam vs. Real Madrid - Football Match Report

Ajax Amsterdam vs. Real Madrid - Football Match Report

The Blues make the trip to Sweden on the back of a 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City that saw them trail by four goals with a little over a quarter of the game played.

Vinicius Junior has had less playing time than Ajax's de Jong, with only six starts in LaLiga and one in the Champions League, but the Brazilian's impact has been arguably just as dramatic as the Dutchman.

However, Asensio converted the victor when he met a stunning delivery from Dani Carvajal at the far post.

BT Sport discussed the decision on their half-time show, after replaying the controversial decision. "We are ready to fight for everything, to get to the final of the Copa del Rey and go as far as possible in the Champions League".

Ajax were not finished, though, and with 15 minutes left they sliced Real open again with Ziyech converting a low cross from Neres. You have to know how to read games and we did that.

Ajax thought they had taken the lead 10 minutes later when Nicolás Tagliafico nodded home from close range, but after consultation with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) the goal was ruled out for an offside.

"We can be proud of the team", he said.

While on stage, the rapper couldn't nonce words and was smiling bright as she accepted her award alongside her team. Offset's been doing everything he can to win her back officially, and things are extremely close to getting there.


"The correct decision? I think so", he told reporters. "There we can learn from Madrid - they created less chances but scored more goals".

"They pressed very high and did not give you time to receive the ball from the back".

Solari said he had not seen the images.

Moments later Ajax threatened and Noussair Mazraoui was played in by Dusan Tadic only to screw his shot across goal and wide.

Ajax will parade their latest crop of young gems at the Johan Cruyff Arena, where Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt will attempt to live up to already-swelling reputations while the likes of Donny van de Beek, Andre Onana and Kasper Dolberg could also enhance theirs.

Vinicius beat Noussair Mazraoui on the left wing, cut inside, found Benzema and the French striker smashed home the opening goal.

The former Chelsea keeper admitted that while it is yet to be perfected, the positives outweigh the negatives, praising its use while speaking in his press conference ahead of Madrid's last 16 first leg tie against Ajax on Wednesday.
