Michael Owen reveals his prediction for Ajax v Real Madrid

Chelsea news Frank Lampard Maurizio Sarri Derby

Ajax scored against Real Madrid just before the break but the goal was overturned through VAR.

Tagliafico's header shortly before half time was chalked off when, after re-watching the incident as part of a VAR review, referee Skomina deemed Dusan Tadic to have been interfering with play from an offside position.

Perhaps nobody typifies Madrid's turnaround under Solari more than Vinicius Jr, who has brought freshness to the attack, with the Brazilian's willingness to run at rivals a key factor in Karim Benzema's current goal-scoring form.

Ten Hag was not convinced by the video images he saw.

Solari said he had not seen the images.

Santiago Solari has hailed Sergio Ramos ahead of the Real Madrid captain making his 600th appearance for the club.

Benzema was not to be denied on the hour mark as the Frenchman rifled the ball into the top corner after some brilliant work by Vinicius Junior in the build-up.

Ajax got the goal their play deserved with 15 minutes remaining as Ziyech side-footed home after a sweeping move, latching on to a delivery from David Neres on the left.

Madrid play Ajax on Wednesday in the first leg of the last 16, hoping to take one step closer to their fifth European triumph in six years.

Tadic then held off Sergio Ramos to fire in a shot that hit the post, and Ziyech missed another one-on-one chance with Courtois as Ajax's incisive passing stretched the visitors.

Real created little in the first half.

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.

Ajax will parade their latest crop of young gems at the Johan Cruyff Arena, where Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt will attempt to live up to already-swelling reputations while the likes of Donny van de Beek, Andre Onana and Kasper Dolberg could also enhance theirs.

It has also intensified speculation linking Hazard with a move to Real Madrid at the end of the season, but the Belgium global stressed that he believed in the way Sarri wanted Chelsea to play.
