In Madrid's Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, the match of the 1/8 Champions League final between Real and the Dutch Ajax starts. The first match took place on February 13 brought the "creamy" 2: 1 minimum victory, which leads Madrid to a large percentage to the next stage of the tournament. As for the bookmaker line, the "all-knowing" practically have no doubt about the home victory of the "kings".
Real Madrid went up to the first match against Ajax in good shape, before playing against the Dutch, Madrid lost only one time in the previous matches (Leganes in the second match of the Spanish Cup) and also there was a draw at Camp Nou with Barcelona. By February, the “creamy” gained momentum, again became a force in Spain - approached the Catalans at a distance of six points, returning the intrigue to the Spanish championship. In their field in the framework of the current season Real Madrid had three matches: two victories over Roma and Victoria, 0-3 defeat against CSKA.
Ajax in the fall of 2018 was very good, but the “red-whites” didn’t come up to the first match against Real Madrid in the best shape. Two weeks before the starting match of the 1/8 finals of the championship tournament, the Ajaxids defeated Feyenoord 2: 6, and 4 days before the fight with the Spanish, the Amsterdam team lost to Heracles 0: 1. If a team is inferior to the middle league, then how can you expect a victory over the strongest team on the planet, and even in good shape? In the group stage of the Champions League, Ajax on the road played a double draw, with Bayern and Benfica, and also beat the Greek AEK with a score of 2: 0.
Real Madrid fans have not forgotten the disgraceful defeat of their team in the last Champions League home game with CSKA. Surely, football players will remember that failure and will try in the upcoming game to please the fans with a bright victory over Ajax. Even despite the fact that Madrid, in general, in the upcoming game may be enough and a draw.
