Asensio nets late Real victor as Ajax left to rue VAR decision

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unbeaten as Manchester United boss

"His adaptation has been very fast", Solari said. Their previously solid defense crumbled late last month in a 6-2 defeat to archrival Feyenoord and Erik ten Hag's team slumped to a 1-0 defeat on Saturday to Heracles Almelo. We did, but you have to be more ruthless.

"Ajax have lost two of their last three domestically, but they do score goals and I would be surprised if both sides don't find the back of the net in what promises to be an open, entertaining tie at the Johan Cruyff Arena".

"I have said many times that I am a great defender of the VAR because it will make football fairer little by little", Ramos said.

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.

Former Liverpool FC and Real Madrid star Owen believes that the stage is set for an open game on Wednesday night between the two sides.

The controversial decision meant Real went in at half-time on level terms with all three goals coming in the second half.

Ajax were not finished, though, and with 15 minutes left they sliced Real open again with Ziyech converting a low cross from Neres. But it started confidently and Tadic almost gave Ajax the lead, his 26th-minute shot hitting the post after beating Courtois. Vinicius Junior came closest for Madrid when he cut in from the left wing and shot on target only for Onana to palm the ball over the bar.

No matter where you are in the world, you can see what channel the Ajax vs Real Madrid match is available on here.

Tagliafico took advantage of a Thibaut Courtois error to give his side the lead against Real Madrid in the first leg of their knockout match.

They were also denied a first-half opener when Nicolas Tagliafico headed home only for the goal to be chalked off after a VAR check in a Champions League first as Dusan Tadic was judged offside.

Where can I watch Ajax vs Real Madrid?

But just before the hour mark Benzema made the breakthrough with his 60th Champions League goal on his 450th Real appearance.

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.
