1-2: The champions take the first step towards the quarter-finals

15 Feb 2019

There are no easy games in Europe. The European champions know that all too well after the last three seasons. In Amsterdam, Real Madrid had to suffer and hold off the advances of a tough rival in the shape of Ajax. The game was rugged and the Whites had to call on their experience and grit to claim a 2-1 win and take the first step towards the quarter-finals. Benzema scored the first after some sublime play from Vinicius and once Ziyech had levelled the game, Asensio was on hand to clinch the win for the Whites on 87’. It was also a special game for Sergio Ramos, as he reached the milestone of 600 games for Real Madrid. On 5 March the tie will be concluded at the Santiago Bernabéu.
