Real Madrid vs Ajax – In this article, I will be giving you the Probable Lineups, Team News & the Best Dream11 Combination of the UEFA Champions League match between Real Madrid and Ajax.
Important: Confirmed Lineups and revised Dream11 combination will be updated on this article 5-10 mins after the official final lineups are released (Between 12.30-12:45 AM tonight). An update will be posted on my Twitter handle to inform you all.
Confirmed Lineups (updated):
Real Madrid: Courtois; Reguilón, Varane, Nacho, Carvajal; Casemiro, Kroos, Modrić; Vázquez, Benzema, Vinícius.
Ajax: Onana; Tagliafico, Blind, De Ligt, Mazraoui; De Jong, Schöne; Van de Beek, Tadić, Ziyech; Neres.
- Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is suspended for this contest.
- Nacho is expected to replace Ramos in central defence.
- Ajax is expected to field the same starting XI as they did in the 1st leg.
- Lucas Vazquez is expected to start ahead of a disgruntled Gareth Bale.
- Real Madrid have lost their last 3 matches at the Santiago Bernabeu.
- However, they are immense in Europe and favourites to go through to the next round.
- However, their defence is very leaky and no one will be surprised if Ajax score tonight.
- Tadic and Hakim Ziyech are very dangerous players for Ajax upfront.
- Nicolas Tagliafico, who had a goal wrongly disallowed in the 1st leg, is a major attacking threat.
- Daley Blind will take most of the set-pieces for Ajax and has good assist potential.
- In the absence of Ramos, Karim Benzema will most likely be on penalties for Real Madrid.
- Casemiro and Benzema will be the biggest threat for Real from corners and set-pieces.
- I expect Real Madrid to squeak through to the next round.
- My Prediction: Real Madrid 1-1 Ajax.
- Players such as Marco Asensio, Gareth Bale, Huntelaar, Kasper Dolberg can make a significant impact off the bench for both sides.
