News Sergio Ramos, 600 games for Real Madrid

Maurizio Sarri has effectively told Chelsea's board to back him or sack him The Italian has run out of patience after another woeful performance

The first half witnessed Ajax's high pressure on the Madrid defense.

Real, victor of the last three Champions Leagues, recovered in the second half after being outplayed by underdog Ajax before the break at a packed Johan Cruyff Arena, when the hosts had a goal disallowed by VAR - the first time the video referee had overturned a Champions League goal.

But two minutes later, Ramos received a yellow card which means he will now miss the return leg at the Santiago Bernabeu but will be available for the quarter-final if Madrid qualify for the last eight.

He also praised VAR which stopped Ajax going ahead when Tagliafico's goal was ruled out.

"We kept control, scored a really nice goal, they made a good 1-1 and we got another for 1-2 and we are really happy with the victory". "We're approaching it with maximum respect", said Solari.

The visitors came out firing in the second half and they almost went ahead after 50 minutes when Dani Carvajal played in Karim Benzema, who saw his first-time strike saved by Andre Onana.

Distillate inventories decreased by 2.481 million barrels versus an expected draw of 1.090 million barrels. Numerous region's refineries are new and are optimised to process heavy and sour crudes.

"I think it was the right decision, when it happened I thought maybe offside", Courtois told BT Sport. You have to know how to read games and we did that.

"I have said many times that I am a great defender of the VAR because it will make football fairer little by little", Ramos said.

In the night's other round-of-16 match, Tottenham beat Dortmund 3-0, with all the goals coming in the second half at Wembley. "There we can learn from Madrid - they created less chances but scored more goals". It's disappointing to give it away in the last few minutes. "Sometimes it has been harmful to us, and today it ruled out an important goal".

Benzema tested the reflexes of home goalkeeper Andre Onana just after the break, a warning of his threat that was not heeded as he netted on the hour-mark with a rasping finish into the top-corner after Vinicius Jr. picked him out after having been given acres of space in the box.

Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari will have to decide between youth and experience as his side looks to take another step towards a historic fourth consecutive Champions League title on Wednesday.
