Madrid can win fourth straight Champions League, says Courtois

Real fledglings face off against Ajax's talented young guns

Speaking afterwards, Ajax head coach Ten Hag told reporters: "I've seen an excellent Ajax against an opponent of world class and one of the best of Europe, Real Madrid".

And the Belgian can perhaps count himself lucky to remain Santiago Solari's first choice.

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. The Dutch side have lost their last six games against Madrid, conceding 20 times and scoring just twice, which is an indication of the task they face over the two legs.

He had faith too.

Ajax didn't give up and after substitute Kasper Dolberg had missed, Hakim Ziyech produced the equalizer in the 75th minute.

Pictures of the masked victor have gone viral. "From the day I found out that I won, I've been sick". Past year a Jamaican woman pulled a similar stunt and wore an emoji mask to disguise herself.

Solari could name the same team that beat Atletico Madrid 3-1 at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday. In both, he was Real's greatest threat, to the extent that even Bale's starting spot has been questioned. "He is 18 and he has adapted to a new country, a new culture, a different type of football".

The coach dropped Marcelo for the trip across town on Saturday with former B-teamer Sergio Reguilon given the nod at left back, where he responded with another assured defensive performance.

Sari, who's now under serious pressure to keep his job at Stamford Bridge, admits it won't be easy to play after Sunday's humiliation at the Etihad. Together, Vinicius, Reguilon, Llorente and Ceballos have played 64 games since Solari was appointed. "Therefore, they have to be part of the present". Can the current holders get off to the flawless start as they look to retain their title for a third consecutive time? "He's got enough issues with his press further up the pitch, but this was really, really problematic".

The tweet above roughly translates to: "I want to make it clear that it hurts more than anyone, that I have not forced the card, as I did against Roma in my previous game of Champions League, and that I will support from the stands as a fan with the illusion of being in rooms".
