Fans react to disallowed Ajax goal

The Champions League is back tonight and fans are getting excited

But just before the hour mark Benzema made the breakthrough with his 60th Champions League goal on his 450th Real appearance.

However, Asensio converted the victor when he met a stunning delivery from Dani Carvajal at the far post.

Together, Vinicius, Reguilon, Llorente and Ceballos have played 64 games since Solari was appointed. "He did everything he had to do from the moment he came into the pitch". It's too bad it didn't get us a better result.

Ajax were not finished, though, and with 15 minutes left they sliced Real open again with Ziyech converting a low cross from Neres.

Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag was bemused by the VAR decision. "We underperformed against Heracles and Feyenoord in the league", he said of recent domestic defeats that left Ajax off the pace in the Dutch title race.

"Normally you don't create so many chances against a top team like Madrid". You have to know how to read games and we did that.

Real travelled to Holland full of confidence after a 3-1 win against Atletico Madrid at the weekend, their sixth victory in a seven-game unbeaten run. Real will also feel more pressure in front of its own audience.

But referee Damir Skomina decided that Dusan Tadic was offside and obstructing the view of Courtois. The reaction of Courtois says it all: the ex-Chelsea shot-stopper looked resigned to having made an error.

Solari said he had not seen the images.

"It will be a pity but I have to rest, but I hope to play many more games and keep representing Madrid as captain", said Ramos.

The controversial decision meant Real went in at half-time on level terms with all three goals coming in the second half. It's disappointing to give it away in the last few minutes.

Ajax, in the last 16 of the Champions League for the first time since 2006, had lost its last six matches against Madrid.

In a vibrant display they hit the woodwork, tested Thibaut Courtois frequently and had a goal ruled out by the video assistant referee before Benzema struck. At times it has worked against us and tonight a goal was chalked off, which was important.

Sergio Ramos played his 600th game for Real Madrid against Ajax on Wednesday, a 2-1 win that takes Los Blancos towars the UCL quarter-finals.

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.

One point seemed deserved, but Real substitute Marco Asensio came out in the 87th minute with a fine stretch at the second post.
