In the heenwedstrijd of the eighth finals of the Champions League Real Madrid 1-2 won. The match will go down in history as the first Champions Leaguewedstrijd in which a goal is to indicate the VAR was rejected. Ajax played a strong match against a mak Real, that only in the second half better in the match came. Real came up as first lead after a goal from Benzema. Ziyech could still align, but eventually Asensio for the kiss of death. In the slotminuten picked up Ramos a yellow card, giving the defender the second leg in Madrid on march 5, fog.
For Real it was a special match at the Johan Cruijf ArenA in Amsterdam. In 1998 won The Royal’, their seventh Champions Leaguebeker after 13 years of dry. Since there are six cups have been added. The record began in the first half of the eighth final to the trip to ‘La Decimacuarto’, the fourteenth of the cup, and the fourth in a row.
This counted coach Solari, among others on the Red Devils Thibault Courtois in the goal, but surprisingly also on Gareth Bale. Against Barcelona and Atlético, the Dutch boss has his place to give it to Vazquez, but Bale must now re-prove against Ajax. The defense held Reguillon Marcelo on the bench and Nancho replaced the injured is looking forward to next captain Ramos.
Also, At Hag did every shifts. After the lost game against Heracles disappeared Mazroui to the bank. In his place came Kristensen, and Huntelaar started to not work, so Ajax without deep striker played. Who in the was was Matthijs De ligt. He was uncertain for the match, but came to the kick-off. With his 19 years, he was also the youngest captain ever in a knock-outwedstrijd of the Champions League.
First disallowed goal by the VAR
Real, however, could not convince in the ArenA. Ajax started the most in the competition. The guys At Hag to convert high pressure, and also had the first shot. Ziyech tried from afar, but the ball went high over. Despite the strong start of Ajax, it was in the beginning, especially Real that opportunities created. Onana had in the beginkwartier three rescues to perform, Courtois is not. It was Real that after a quarter of an hour the match in our hands took. Still, Ajax is the closest to the openingsdoelpunt. After weakly defending the Spaniards could Tadic out, but the pole prevented Ajax from the 1-0.
Real lost immediately grip on the game. The midfield with Modric, Duckweed and Casemiro could not strong, and a little later came also Courtois, thanks to the VAR, in a good way. Courtois fumbled a ball of Lies, which Tagliafico the ball could binnenkoppen. The VAR, however, that Tadic from buitenspelpositie Courtois bothered,which Tagliafico was able to score. His goal didn’t count, but he had the honor to be the first disallowed goal in specifying the VAR. Ajax had not the heart to come, because shortly after walked Tadic past Casemiro and Nacho. He also could not score. The first half ended as it started, but Ajax certainly had, and earn more money at a mak Real.
Ziyech does Ajax even dreams
The Amsterdam storm was at the beginning of the second half what. That gave Real the chance to be again in the contest. Onana had after 5 minutes, a shot from Benzema from the corner to pick it up, but that turned out to be a postponement of the execution. 10 minutes later showed Vinícius why he as ‘The next big thing’ is seen. He dribbled past the Dutch, and thus laid the foundation for the goal that Benzema is not much later with much precision against the nets lap. A cold shower for Ajax, which is a very strong match was playing.
From then on, it took Real control back in the hands. Bale was to the side, reached for the young Lucas Vazquez. And also Benzema should after his goal in the rest. Asensio came in his place. Ten Hag opted to turn for more aanvalsgeweld and put deep striker Dolberg in the team for Schöne. Dolberg immediately resulted in danger. He conjured a handsome loopactie out, but popped over to wild about. Not much later, if Amsterdam still celebrate. Ziyech pushed a flurry of Neres past Courtois, but Real was an error claimed. This time it threw the VAR no soot in the food. The goal of Ziyech had and brought Ajax earned alongside.
The final stage of the race there was a with chances on both sides. Especially Asensio was eager. After a previous attempt to wereldgoal in the zijnet ended up, had to Onana for salvation to be sure. At the third attempt was still touch. After a great cross from Carvajal could Asensio the ball binnentikken and Real victory provide. Ramos put in the slotminuten a damper on the revelry. The Spanish defender was an error with the yellow is punished and misses therefore the second leg in Madrid.
