Real Madrid vs Ajax Amsterdam Preview

Real Madrid vs Ajax Amsterdam

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Estadio Santiago Bernabéu

Date: 5th March 2019

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Real Madrid will be looking to avoid an upset at the hands of Ajax when they take to the field for this return leg.

Los Merengues managed a 2-1 win when they visited the Amsterdam Arena three weeks ago. However, their form has tailed off and they come into this game after consecutive losses against rivals Barcelona.

Since they defeated Ajax in the first leg, they have played four competitive matches, losing three and securing just a single win, so the Dutch side should feel that they can come up with an upset here.

Ajax have been in a better run of form since that first leg as they have managed to play and win 3 games, scoring a total of 13 goals and conceding just once.

The Dutch side come into this game having won their last two away games in emphatic fashion so confidence should be high in their camp.

Bookmakers are less optimistic about Ajax’s chances as Real Madrid are currently odds-on to win this second leg and progress to the last 8.

Goal markets strongly suggest a lively game as over 2.5 goal is trading long odds-on while the duo of Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale both head the first goalscorer market.
