It is now clear that Real Madrid’s strength only seems to get to maximum once it’s the champions league as evident in their display against Dutch side, Ajax, in the champions league knock out stage today.
The Los Blancos were passers by for a large part of the competition with Ajax pulling strings and should have been ahead in the 36th minute if not for VAR drama.
However, Ajax played the best football during the encounter – Real Madrid managed to emerge victorious by two goals to one and fans have a thing or two to say.
I loved how these Ajax boys played but when playing against Madrid in UCL knockout stages, your nice football isn’t needed. They’ll use experience and everything to win or secure a point. These Ajax players outplayed Man United in the Europa finals and lost. Experience counts.

Real Madrid have done what the are good at (cheating their way to the top).
Don't worry Ajax FC we the Barça nation promise to get your revenge. We would match them Money for Money, Power for Power and VAR for VAR. #AJARMA
