Draw links Ajax to Real Madrid
“And for Ajax it is not yet past. A better opponent than Real Madrid was not conceivable for Ajax. It is the reigning European champion and do Ajax have nothing to lose and everything to gain. If everyone in Amsterdam with the feet on the ground, then I see even to the eighth-finals against Real to survive.”
Technically and tactically you can just come along, but success against the Spaniards will mainly depend on the way you with the opportunities which it deals. And how many mistakes you can afford. Against Real Madrid you don’t get eight times the chance on goal to shoot, and is the opponent able to in a flash have a race to decide. An error from Real, you should directly punish, because it is a slightly different level than the Eredivisie, where a miss is not immediately fatal.
