VAR produced the right decision in disallowing Ajax goal - Thibaut Courtois

Michael Owen reveals his prediction for Ajax v Real Madrid

Real fledglings face off against Ajax's talented young guns

Real Madrid is set to play Ajax in the Round of 16 first leg in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 12 p.m. PT at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam, Netherlands. When the guy headed it I wanted to go and catch it.

"Because of his intention I made a quick movement and the ball bounced on my arm. I think it's brilliant how he carries out his job as leader, which isn't an easy one".

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.

Ajax are seeking to reach the Champions League quarterfinals for the first time in 16 years, while Real have not lost a tie at this stage in nearly a decade. It's such a shame this goal wasn't approved. "Luckily for VAR because nobody would have seen it". Can the current holders get off to the ideal start as they look to retain their title for a third consecutive time?

Cesar Azpilicueta, therefore, sent a bitter apology to the fans for letting them done in the game they highly anticipated as he admitted that the Man City brutality was the worst game of his career. We have great memories of this stadium.

Karim Benzema swept holders Real into the lead in the second half, before Hakim Ziyech scored a deserved equaliser as an energetic Ajax created more than enough chances to win comfortably on the night.

Nicolas Tagliafico appeared to have put his side in front after some questionable goalkeeping from Thibaut Courtois, who spilled Matthijs de Ligt's header.

After checking on the monitor the referee decided that Dusan Tadic was impeding the goalkeeper from an offside position.

Yet Asensio had the final word, scoring at the back post from Carvajal's cross.

"There were a lot of things we needed to do to get this result".

"But we have continued well and have received our opportunities afterwards".
