Ten Hag hails 'excellent' Ajax after VAR controversy

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos celebrates at the end of their La Liga match against Club Atletico de Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid

Michael Owen reveals his prediction for Ajax v Real Madrid

Frenkie de Jong will be fit to play for Ajax Amsterdam against Real Madrid in the Champions League, the Dutch side's coach Eric ten Hag said on Tuesday.

Madrid went on to take the lead in the 60th minute on a goal from Karim Benzema, who became only the fourth player to score at least 60 goals in the Champions League alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Raul.

Solari gave Vinicius 90 minutes in his first match in charge, more than Lopetegui had in all 14 of his, AFP reported.

One fan tweeted: "Disallowed goal or not, how do people expect me to just never talk about Courtois again?"

"It was a mistake by me but I went to go and catch it and Tadic made an attempt to shoot, yet didn't touch it, and as he's offside he's offside". I think Ajax have shown in the Champions League they can do really well. "Luckily for VAR because nobody would have seen it".

"I have said many times that I am a great defender of the VAR because it will make football fairer little by little", Ramos said. We have great memories of this stadium.

Nicolas Tagliafico appeared to have put his side in front after some questionable goalkeeping from Thibaut Courtois, who spilled Matthijs de Ligt's header.

Hakim Ziyech's goal, however, wasn't the last one scored in the match as Marco Asensio scored three minutes from full-time to help Madrid take home a crucial lead.

Yet Skomina called for a VAR check and, after a number of replays, ruled that Tadic had been standing in an offside position when the goal was scored.

Yet Asensio had the final word, scoring at the back post from Carvajal's cross. We created chances on this high European level against a world class team. Maybe something like that is easy to do in favour of a big club.

"But we have continued well and have received our opportunities afterwards".

While Ajax didn't get a desired result, it wasn't a matter of Real Madrid having youngsters like Vinicius Junior and Ajax not.
