I support German teams in Europe but can't say I'm not slightly amused by Dortmund's last 4 games. I feel your pain though. Hope we're not feeling the same way this time on Tuesday.

Shame it was such a disastrous ending. I believe you could have done something at home even with a 2-0 loss but this result is a little too big.

I fail to remember when was the last time Real won a double legged UCL KO affair clean. The 5-0 win against us and the 4-2 against Atletico come to mind. However, despite the referees being so incredibly biased, RM do know how to perform at this stage. The Champs league is won by taking your chances and defending resolutely and they do both things pretty well.

Sad for Dortmund and this will unfortunately make them solely focus on the BL.

Hope Kovac realised they can't defend crosses as that's one of our biggest weapons

I can see Goretzka and Lewy having a goalfest 8)

We've conceded another 3 goals from crosses! ALL THREE OF THEM.

Jesus... How could we become so bad defensively in such a short time.

Time to wake up imidiately or the title hopes will be over soon as well.

What a poor second half from Dortmund. Not a good performance for the Bundesliga. Dortmund are in crisis and their confidence is gone after their poor form in recent games. It will be a great feeling to see Bayern take the title from their hands late in the season.

Hopefully but let us be realistic here. Winning the Double this season would be a phenomenal achievement.

Against us in the first round they should be down 2-0 in the first 15'
As I said, very good football, wish we were so fast and flexible upfront ourselves but they were EXTREMELY lucky to win some games undeservedly they escaped, now they landed in normality(bad results, getting punished when you leave spaces, injuries etc) in others words Welcome to the Bayern life, if you can't keep up under these circumstances and you break I'd happily celebrate another championship even playing that bad.

Ajax were great, played an awesome match, primarily 1st half where they ate Real Madrid, but failed to shoot on goal.
Instead of doing that they were passing and complicating in few situations where some of they players could have taken a responsibility and finish alone(course of late first and the whole second decade of the 21st century). Therefore they paid a heavy price for missing their chances.

Then that silly VAR again in action of slapping people who believed it'll prevent injustice, robberies and... Real Madrid. :D Ohh no, ain't gonna really happen. :P

Too bad for Ajax, I was really for them from the start of the CL campaign, however, with something else I was really impressed and that's how such a young team like Ajax can handle and stand equally against a team such as Real Madrid. :thumbup:

It wasn't a coincidence at all against Bayern in the group stage, but even there they failed to score and win, primarily in the first match at Allianz Arena.

Man... I want Ten Hag back in FC Bayern from the first moment I heard he's the Ajax coach - but this time coaching the first team.

He really has something and knows how to manage young players, he is familiar with Bayern, speaks German very well and I don't know how we didn't consider to take him last year instead of Niko Kovač, but okay... Our board is very typical in these situations... Screw up with Tuchel, ignore Favre, hire Plan E.

It's never too late for the Dutchman. What I really want to see here from Ajax is De Ligt and their RB. That's exactly what we desperately need along.

Favre's masterplan:
1. Always leave vast amounts of space on both wings
2. When Tottenham's players take advantage of this space, never have one of the centerbacks run outside to close them down. Tottenham's players must be allowed as much time as possible to pick out a perfect cross.
3. Never counterattack and always play short, slow passes. Tottenham must be allowed to pack their entire team into the box before Dortmund tries to score.
4. When Dortmund finally arrives in the final third, allow no players to enter the box. They could receive crosses or through passes and their presence might distract the defense, and we can't have that. Instead, everyone must remain outside the box and slowly and predictably pass from side to side.
5. Only shots from outside the box are permissible. A buildup which took 10 minutes must be wasted on a xG 0.03 shot
6. Have no other plan to score goals than having Sancho and Pulisic dribble past 5 players.
7. Have Gotze fight for the ball, unsupported, against 4 players twice as big as he is.
8. Don't throw on a striker or attacking player when down 2-0 at the 84th minute.
9. Don't press Lloris when down 3-0 at the 89th minute. Tottenham must be allowed to waste as much time as possible passing the ball back and forth between the centerbacks and the keeper.
9. Somehow allow Tottenham to gain all the advantages and none of the drawbacks of the possession, pressing, and counterattacking styles.
10. ???
11. ???
12. ???
13. Profit!

Did I miss anything?

I've always disliked VAR, but now I do it even more. With VAR it's easier to deliberately rob any team.


Whenever any team scores a goal VAR can just go back 30 seconds and try to see if there is any minimal thing that can cause it to be disallowed. Yesterday not even Courtois or Real players protested before VAR revised the goal

If they don't want to disallow the goal they can just ignore it and move on.


Another example is Asensio's goal. Just before he scored you have Vinicius pushing and running over an Ajax player. VAR could have easily disallowed the goal because of that foul, but they decided to conveniently ignore it.

Again ,... I think the VAR should go like this...

both coaches should ask the ref two times per match... that's all
