Real Madrid will look to finish their Champions League group stage campaign with a bang when they go up against Ajax on Wednesday at the Amsterdam Arena as Paddy report free bets on the game.
Jose Mourinho’s side are already assured of their place in the final 16 thanks to their immaculate record so far – Madrid have won all five of their encounters so far, scoring 16 and conceding just 2 in the process – and will look to deal a blow to their Dutch opponent’s hopes of making it through with them.
Ajax meanwhile will qualify for the last 16 if they avoid defeat against Real, or if they lose and their overall goal difference is still superior to Lyon’s, whose hoodoo over Madrid was unable to extend to another Champions League campaign.
The Spanish side were victorious when the sides last met back in September, with efforts from Christiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Kaka all getting on the scoresheet to secure a 3-0 win over their group rivals.
