Real Madrid Vs Ajax Football Highlights
(UEFA Champions League)
Venue : Santiago Bernebeu
(Agg: 3 – 5)
Key Moments Recap :
Goal : 18′ 0 – 2 David Neres
David Neres is the hero but none of that would have been possible without a sensational assist from Dusan Tadic, who weaves and spins his way through the Madrid defence before slotting Neres into space in the area, who round the on-rushing Courtois.
Goals : 7′ 0 – 1 Hakim Ziyech
Real Madrid lose possession cheaply on the left flank, allowing Tadic to break into the area. He draws one defender and shifts the ball across to the late-arriving Hakim Ziyech, who opens up his body and places a sumptuous effort into the bottom left-hand corner.
Goal: 62′ 0 – 3 Dusan Tadic
Ajax rip Real Madrid apart with a stunning third goal. A flowing counter attack ends with Dusan Tadic picking up the ball on the edge of the area and he rifles an unstoppable effort into the top left-hand corner.

Man Of The Match : Dusan Tadic
Real Madrid will look to rebound from their back to back losses to Spanish rivals FC Barcelona in their UEFA Champions League Round Of 16 second leg clash with Ajax at the Santiago Bernebeu.
Real Madrid came out victorious in the reverse fixture three weeks ago and despite their poor form, are clear favorites to advance into the Quarter Finals of the competition.
Centre-back Lisandro Magallan and midfielder Carel Eiting won’t be on the team for Ajax, as in the First Leg.
Sergio Ramos is suspended and will be the only player to miss the second leg with Ajax.
- 100 per cent of teams to have won 2-1 away from home in the first leg of a Champions League knockout match have progressed to the next round (8 previous cases).
- Real Madrid have won their last seven games in all competitions against Ajax (22 goals for, 3 against), the best ever run for the Spanish side against a single opponent in European competition. Ajax’s last victory against the Merengues was back in November 1995: 2-0 in the Champions League group stages at the Bernabeu with goals from Jari Litmanen and Patrick Kluivert.
- It’s 22 years since Ajax progressed through a Champions League knockout stage tie – in the 1996-97 campaign when the Dutch side prevailed against Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals before being eliminated by Juventus in the semi-finals.
- Real Madrid have won the Champions League four times in the last five seasons. Juventus were the last team to eliminate Real in a Champions League knockout phase, back in the 2014-15 semi-finals.
- Real Madrid have reached the Champions League semi-finals in each of the last eight campaigns, a record run in the history of the competition.
- Real Madrid have lost two of their last five home games in the Champions League (W2 D1), as many as in their previous 48 at the Bernabeu combined (W40 D6 L2).
- 11 of Ajax’s 12 goals in this season’s Champions League have been scored in the second half (92 per cent).
