... Madrid will need to have an off-day, and Ajax will have to perform much better than usual, if they want to stand a chance.

LB Daley Blind is pure crap btw. Not sure why he gets a mention in the article, cause most people seem to agree he isn't Ajax-worthy, probably not even Eredivisie-worthy. He's been OK these last few weeks, but for him that means he hasn't done anything REALLY stupid.

RB Van Rhijn IS a big talent though, so it will be interesting to see how he'll do to one of the very best players in the game.

Someone who should have been mentioned in the article, is Ryan Babel, who bought of his contract in Germany to come back to Ajax, and who has done well up front. Not a great player, but he's been very valuable to this Ajax, especially considering Sigthorsson will be out injured for quite a while.

Another player to keep an eye out for is Sana, who cost only 400.000 euro or something, but has been very impressive so far.

Eriksen is always very inconsistent. Sometimes very good, but just as often he's invisible.

Looking forward to the match, but there's very little chance that Ajax will get anything from it...
