The Ajax vs. Real Madrid match will be played on Wednesday, February 13, at the Johan Cruyff Stadium, Amsterdam. This is the UEFA Champions League first leg between the winner of group G and the reigning European champion Real Madrid and the second-placed team from group E Ajax.
These teams played six matches against each other since 2010, and Real Madrid won all of them. In the last five matches against Ajax, Real Madrid scored at least three goals.
Ajax is not in a particularly good form at the moment. They recorded a disastrous 6:2 defeat against Feyenoord in a derby, and last weekend they failed to beat Heracles, because they didn't convert any of the numerous chances they had in that match. Everybody in Ajax claim they are well prepared for the upcoming match, we will see what Real Madrid have to say about that.
