Real Madrid’s bid for a fourth straight Champions League title sees them travel to Amsterdam to do battle with former European heavyweights Ajax.

Predictions

It has been a topsy-turvy season for Real Madrid and one that leaves them slightly off the pace in Spain’s La Liga.

However, when it comes to Europe, the record 13-time European champions know how to step up a gear as they chase down a fourth straight title.

Heading to Amsterdam should pose little concern for Santiago Solari as the best betting sites will certainly favour the men from Madrid to progress and with good reason.

The pedigree of the two sides over the last decade has been poles apart with the Dutch side failing to progress beyond this stage since 2003. The Spaniards has also won all of the last six meetings between the two, but the Amsterdam club can harbour some confidence coming into the game.

Erik Ten Hag’s men are yet to lose a home game this season in all competitions including during the visit of Bayern Munich during the Champions’ League group stages.

However, Real Madrid are getting back to their best after a shaky start to 2018/19 and anything other than an away win will be a shock.

Expect Ajax to stay in the tie with a home goal but Real to put one foot in the quarter-final with an unspectacular 3-1 win.
