Ajax were skipping as Neres puzzled Carvajal with a pirouette in the corner and afterward Tadic did likewise, turning around Casemiro in midfield before teeing up the second. Neres adjusted Thibaut Courtois and chipped the ball home.

Vazquez and Vinicius Junior both left the field harmed and in tears, the last after an electric keep running forward. Bunch went ahead, with Asensio, and dashed down the left however his completion from the point cut the post.

The fans whistled at half-time and Madrid were no better in the wake of, making chances yet inadequate with regards to self-restraint and control. Karim Benzema shimmied past Ziyech however twisted wide, just for Ajax to include a luxurious, but questionable, third.

They worked it from ideal to left and after that inside once more, where Donny van de Beek moved a last go to Tadic, who whipped a sizzling shot into the best corner.

The cheers ceased as ref Felix Brych sat tight for VAR, with the ball apparently out for a toss before Noussair Mazraoui slid to keep it in. The camera edge was hazy and the objective stood.

Madrid required three of every 24 minutes and afterward two out of 20, as Asensio cleared in Sergio Reguilon's cross to give them trust. Erik ten Hag was seconds from bringing Schone off however rather, his midfielder twisted a free-kick into Courtois' best corner.
