Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has backed the use of VAR in the Champions League, with the technology being implemented in all knockout matches for the first time.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: "Ajax have lost their last six games against Real Madrid in all competitions, but the hosts have only lost one of their last 21 home European ties and won five out of six this season including qualifiers". This historic Madrid side has the stamp of his character.

"Madrid have the stamp of his character and I hope we can enjoy him in as many games as possible".

No matter where you are in the world, you can see what channel the Ajax vs Real Madrid match is available on here.

"I think they have a really good team - Blind and Tadic, experienced players and good players, as well as talented young players like De Jong and De Ligt", added Courtois. "We achieved a great result and now it's up to them to suffer in our stadium".

"Solari is proving to be a coach who can lead this team", Mijatovic told Radio Marca.

"We knew how to suffer, read the game and create spaces against them to take advantage of our speed". Their previously solid defense crumbled late last month in a 6-2 defeat to archrival Feyenoord and Erik ten Hag's team slumped to a 1-0 defeat on Saturday to Heracles Almelo.

"It's up to us to pick ourselves up", said the Ajax boss.

The Brazilian is likely to start in Amsterdam with Gareth Bale on the subs' bench, which shows that as in the case of Marcelo and also Isco, Solari is not afraid to leave experienced players out of the side.

"This opponent is a challenge".

"[Vinicius] did well, but they all did", the Argentine said. We're physically fit and with the right team spirit, we can go a long way.

Real travelled to Holland full of confidence after a 3-1 win against Atletico Madrid at the weekend, their sixth victory in a seven-game unbeaten run.
