Real Madrid Ride Their Luck To Claim First-Leg Win Over Ajax

It's the reigning Champions League winners versus an upstart Ajax on Wednesday night at the Johan Cruyff ArenA in Amsterdam. The Dutch side started their season with a bang but have fallen fast since the winter break.

Real Madrid are on a similar journey but in the other direction as they have turned things around since returning from the Club World Cup in December.

Ajax manager, Erik Ten Hag, says his plan to beat Madrid is to copy Pep Guardiola's philosophy.

They are coming off a defeat to Herceles in the league and currently sit six points behind PSV Eindhoven in the league but Frenkie de Jong is back and played 70 minutes in that game at the weekend but his place in the team is still questionable.

The manager says, "This opponent is a challenge. We're looking forward to it, we're confident we can take them on.

We're physically fit and with the right team spirit we can go a long way. [Frenkie de Jong] is fit – he will be even more motivated as a future Barcelona player to play against Real Madrid."

They will most certainly need him if they are to compete with the reigning winners of the competition. They are without Hassan Bandé and Nicólas Tagliafico along with Lisandro Magallán.
