Ajax coach Ten Hag:
Good Ajax performance, aggressive pressure. Strong Ajax against a top team. Satisfied with our game. However we were not effective enough and we made small mistakes and Madrid punished us. And we were unlucky with the disallowed goal.
We are good, not need to panic. But we need to play like this against every team. The referee said it was off side and attacking of keeper. According to me a wrong decision. No off side, and no foul.
Madrid coach Solari
We could not see why the Ajax goal was not given. Have to trust referee. We know how we have to play, how to suffer, that we have to work to show our quality.
To win here every player had to perform well. Happy about Asensio goal, he has shown his class. He did everything he had to do after he came on. He kept the ball. But also Bale and the other players played well. The return will be difficult. This is the Champions League.
“We were bad in the first half. Ajax was better and created many chances. In the second half we recoverd and managed to win the game. In the return we must play better.
