Ajax 1-2 Real Madrid: Asensio Saves real Madrid

 

A late goal from Marco asensio gives 13 times European champions real Madrid a slighter advantage over Ajax to advance through to the quarter final of ongoing UEFA champions league although nothing is decided as the return leg will be played on Estedio Santiago bernabau

French forward karim Benzema opened the scoring at the Johan Cruyff Arena, netting in the 60th minute after a storming run and assist from Vinicius Jr which  makes the Frenchman  just the fourth player to score 60 Champions League goals by scoring in Real Madrid’s 2-1 win at Ajax on Wednesday. Having had a Nicolas Tagliafico goal disallowed in the first half after a review, Ajax found themselves behind through Karim Benzema’s 60th goal in the tournament  in the 60 th minute Vinicius takes the ball past three playrs and ties  up  with Benzema to sweep the ball out of Onana’s reach from 10 yards. And In 75 th minutes Hakim Ziyech scored and thought he had secured a deserved draw for the home side at Johan Cruijff ArenA, but Marco Asensio struck late on to put Madrid in control of the tie

Ajax will play against real Madrid on 6 th March on Estedio Santiago bernabau and have to win the game by a margin of 2 goal in order to advance through to the quarter final
