Dutch team Ajax suffered a 2-1 defeat against Real Madrid on their home turf in Amsterdam on Wednesday.

Despite the loss, Ajax manager Erik ten Hag was happy with the way his team played against one of Europe’s “best teams.”

“I think that during most parts of the game we showed them what we wanted to create, opportunities, because our good defending we played aggressively and because of high pressure we created a lot of pressure, overall we played good football,” he said.

Real boss Santiago Solari was humble in victory.

"There is no easy game, and there is not a single team that doesn’t play well in Champions League, so today we saw that we had to spend a lot of energy," Solari said.
