Ajax from the start I decided to push on the gate Courtois. In one of the episodes only tackle on Casemiro front of the penalty area saved by “real” threat from the impact.
Before 10 minutes “Ajax” managed to escape in a counterattack. However, after hitting the ball Masrawi went past the far post. Schenna could have opened the score in this match. However, a free kick from 28 metres took over the wall of the players of real Madrid.

Once again is Courtois saved when the gate is “creamy” shot Zieh – player of “Ajax” was almost one on one with goalkeeper, but his shot was unsuccessful.
But sent the ball over the goal line “Ajax” following error Courtois almost immediately after that. After a corner kick, the goalkeeper played poorly when receiving the ball, and he bounced to Talarico that head shot. And here he took the system VAR. Match referee Damir Skomina has decided to review the replay and disallowed the goal. At the time of the attack, Tagliafico was in an offside position.

In the second half at the beginning, the teams exchanged dangerous moments. First shot archly Benzema, but Onan pulled out a ball from the bottom corner of the goal, and then NARES ran to the counter. But it reflected the impact of Courtois.
At the sixtieth minute, real Madrid took the lead. Although the scorer is Benzema deserves all the credit Vinicius Junior. The Brazilian received the ball on the course, pushing his opponent on the flank, entered the penalty area, where he gathered around himself three defenders, then gave the ball to Benzema. All that was left to the forward – to score the goal past the goalkeeper. Which he did.
To equalize, Ajax have wasted 15 minutes. Neres gave an accurate pass parallel to the goal line on Syesha, which struck the gate rivals. Courtois rushed for the ball, but to reach it failed.
