Fans react to disallowed Ajax goal

Fans react to disallowed Ajax goal

Real, victor of the last three Champions Leagues, recovered in the second half after being outplayed by underdog Ajax before the break at a packed Johan Cruyff Arena, when the hosts had a goal disallowed by VAR - the first time the video referee had overturned a Champions League goal.

Maurizio Sarri will be hoping for an instant response from his Chelsea side when they take on Malmo in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie on Thursday evening.

But Ajax shook off its winter form dip before the break, pressing Madrid high up the pitch, combining well with slick, short passes and looking like the team that qualified second in its group behind Bayern Munich rather than the one that struggled in recent weeks. The Dutch side have tasted defeat in two out of their last three games, including a 6-2 thumping away to rivals Feyenoord.

Real coach Santiago Solari, whose predecessors Zinedine Zidane and Julen Lopetegui both used young players only when they had to, has made youth his first choice since being tasked with rejuvenating his team in November.

"Real Madrid have picked up positive results at Barcelona in the Spanish Cup and at neighbours Atletico in La Liga during the last week and look to be coming into peak form for the start of the knockout stages".

Republican-Controlled Senate to Vote on Democrats' Green New Deal
Republicans showed on Tuesday that they are ready to use the resolution as a political weapon against those Democrats. American favorites like cheeseburgers and milkshake will become a thing of the past", said Sen.

"I believe it's possible to win four", Courtois said at a press conference at the Johan Cruyff Arena. "There we can learn from Madrid - they created less chances but scored more goals".

But the talented Frenkie de Jong has been declared fit to face Real in Amsterdam and the 21-year-old will be keen to impress, ahead of his 75-million-euro move to Barcelona in the summer.

But Erik ten Hag's men could have an advantage with fans taking matters into their own hands as they did their best to derail Los Blancos' build-up.

I'm just happy to be working with Maurizio again at a big club like Chelsea which has so much history and wonderful team-mates. We are all extremely motivated.
