UEFA Champions League Report: Ajax Amsterdam v Real Madrid 13 February

Real fledglings face off against Ajax's talented young guns

Real fledglings face off against Ajax's talented young guns

"I think it was the right decision, when it happened I thought maybe offside", Courtois told BT Sport.

"We must show the same seriousness as today, that is what you must do in these Champions League ties", he said. "Not only the goal, which of course was very important for us". "There we can learn from Madrid - they created less chances but scored more goals".

Isco has managed just five La Liga starts this term and missed Madrid's 3-1 win over rivals Atletico on Saturday. But it only really hit its stride in the second half, proving more clinical in front of goal.

Solari said he had not seen the images.

Sergio Ramos' legendary time at the club started on the 8th September 2005 as he was officially presented as a Real Madrid player.

Solari gave Vinicius 90 minutes in his first match in charge, more than Lopetegui had in all 14 of his, AFP reported.

Four-time winners Ajax, in the knockout stages for the first time in 13 years, dominated for long spells. But it started confidently and Tadic almost gave Ajax the lead, his 26th-minute shot hitting the post after beating Courtois.

Vinicius chased a ball over the top down the left wing and cut inside before finding Benzema, who sent an unerring finish across Anona and high into the net.

"I'm particularly happy with his goal and his performance", he said of Asensio.

Yet Skomina called for a VAR check and, after a number of replays, ruled that Tadic had been standing in an offside position when the goal was scored.

Sergio Ramos played his 600th game for Real Madrid against Ajax on Wednesday, a 2-1 win that takes Los Blancos towars the UCL quarter-finals.

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.

One point seemed deserved, but Real substitute Marco Asensio came out in the 87th minute with a fine stretch at the second post.

Ajax might have felt optimistic when they drew an out-of-sorts Madrid back in December but Santiago Solari's side have found their rhythm since, winning six out of their last seven matches.
