Match background Only this chapter

Real Madrid are well placed to reach a ninth successive UEFA Champions League quarter-final as they welcome Ajax, who are up against it given both the position of the tie and their recent record at the Santiago Bernabéu.

• Goals from Karim Benzema (60) and substitute Marco Asensio (87) either side of Hakim Ziyech's 75th-minute equaliser for the home side gave Real Madrid a 2-1 win at the Johan Crujiff ArenA on 13 February – making it four successive away victories in the UEFA Champions League's knockout rounds, and six in a row outside Spain.

• Madrid have won the last three editions of the UEFA Champions League and have won their last nine two-legged knockout ties in the competition, since defeat by Juventus in the 2014/15 semi-finals.

• The Spanish club have continued their record of appearing in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 every year since its introduction in 2003/04 – and have not lost a tie at this juncture in nine years.

• In contrast, Ajax have reached the round of 16 for the first time since 2005/06 but have never won at this stage of the UEFA Champions League. Furthermore, Ajax have lost their last seven games to Real Madrid, conceding 22 goals while scoring only three.

Highlights: Ajax 1-2 Real Madrid

Previous meetings
• The teams have met 13 times in UEFA competition – all in the European Cup – Real Madrid winning eight and Ajax four with only one draw, 1-1 in the first encounter in Amsterdam in the 1967/68 European Cup first round first leg. Madrid won the second leg 2-1 in Spain to progress.

• Ajax won the next four fixtures between the sides, in the semi-final of their victorious 1972/73 European Cup campaign (2-1 home, 1-0 away) and, as holders, in the 1995/96 UEFA Champions League group stage (1-0 home, 2-0 away), when they went on to reach another final. In the latter campaign, Marc Overmars – now Ajax's director of player affairs – scored the only goal in Amsterdam with Edwin van der Sar (now Ajax's general director) and Danny Blind, father of Daley, playing in both games.

• Madrid have dominated recent contests between the sides, beating Ajax home and away in the group stage in 2010/11, 2011/12 and 2012/13. They have scored nine goals in their last three matches with Ajax at the Santiago Bernabéu, conceding only one.

• Daley Blind played in both the sides' 2012/13 games, Lasse Schöne coming on as a first-half substitute in Madrid's 4-1 home win.

• Karim Benzema was on target in Madrid's win at Ajax in October 2012 having also found the net in a 4-0 success in Amsterdam in November 2010 and in Madrid's 3-0 home victory against Ajax the following September.

Form guide
Real Madrid
• This is Real Madrid's 23rd UEFA Champions League campaign – and the 23rd in which they have reached the knockout phase.

• Madrid are holders and 13-time champions. Semi-finalists or better in each of the last eight seasons, this is their 49th European Cup campaign – more than any other side.

• Madrid are looking to reach the quarter-finals for the ninth successive year. Their round of 16 record is W9 L6; they lost at this stage for six years in a row between 2005 and 2010 but have won their last eight ties.

• In 2017/18, Madrid beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 at home and 2-1 away, Marcelo scoring in the first leg and Casemiro in the second.

• This is the Merengues' first knockout tie against Dutch opponents since a 2-0 aggregate win (1-0 away, 1-0 home) against Vitesse in the 1992/93 UEFA Cup third round. That made Madrid's record in two-legged contests with Eredivisie clubs W6 L3; their last aggregate defeat came on away goals against PSV Eindhoven in the 1987/88 European Champion Clubs' Cup semi-final (1-1 home, 0-0 away).

Sergio Ramos: 600 appearances for Real Madrid

• Madrid have won their last five home matches against Dutch visitors since their 1995 defeat by Ajax; the Merengues' overall record at home to Eredivisie clubs is W10 D1 L2.

• This season, Madrid finished top of Group G with 12 points despite losing both games against bottom side CSKA Moskva – including a 3-0 reverse at the Bernabéu on matchday six that was the club's heaviest home European defeat.

• Madrid have still lost only six of their last 40 European matches, home and away, winning 27.

• Defeat against CSKA in their last home match made it two losses in Madrid's last five European Bernabéu fixtures – although they have been beaten in only three of their last 45 UEFA Champions League home matches (W36). They went down 4-3 to Schalke in their 2014/15 round of 16 second leg and 3-1 against Juventus in last season's quarter-final second leg, but still won both ties on aggregate.

• Madrid have lost only one of the 34 UEFA competition ties in which they won the first leg away from home, most recently beating Bayern München in last season's semi-finals (2-1 away, 2-2 home). The exception came against Odense in the 1994/95 UEFA Cup third round when a 3-2 away success preceded a 2-0 home reverse.

• Madrid's record in four UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W2 L2:
5-3 v Atlético Madrid, 2015/16 UEFA Champions League final
1-3 v Bayern München, 2011/12 UEFA Champions League semi-final
3-1 v Juventus, 1986/87 European Champion Clubs' Cup second round
5-6 v Crvena zvezda, 1974/75 European Cup Winners' Cup quarter-final

Dolberg: Ajax showed we can play at this level

Ajax
• The 2005/06 tie against Internazionale is Ajax's sole previous UEFA Champions League round of 16 contest; the Dutch club drew 2-2 in the home first leg – Klaas-Jan Huntelaar opening the scoring – before a 1-0 defeat in Milan.

• Ajax's last UEFA Champions League quarter-final came in 2002/03, when they were beaten 3-2 at AC Milan having drawn the home first leg 0-0.

• The Dutch club are without a win in their last seven UEFA Champions League knockout phase fixtures (D2 L5), since a 3-2 victory at Atlético Madrid in the 1996/97 quarter-final second leg that completed a 4-3 aggregate success.

• Ajax have lost all three UEFA Champions League away games in the knockout phase since winning at Atlético; they had won the previous three and were unbeaten in five (D2).

• Ajax's last experience of Spanish opposition before the first leg came in the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League group stage, when they drew 2-2 at Celta Vigo before a 3-2 home victory.

• The Amsterdammers have won only two of their last 15 games against Spanish opponents (D1 L12). The 2-2 draw at Celta ended a run of six successive defeats in Spain, where Ajax have not won since that Atlético tie (D2 L7).

• Ajax's record in two-legged knockout ties against Spanish clubs is W7 L2, the most recent a 3-0 aggregate loss (0-1 home, 0-2 away) against Mallorca in the 1999/2000 UEFA Cup third round.

Goalkeepers with 50 #UCL clean sheets

• Ajax were unbeaten in Europe in 2018/19 – a run of 12 matches (W7 D5) – before their first-leg defeat. They won their first away game at Sturm Graz in the second qualifying round (3-1), drawing the next four – including at Bayern München and Benfica in Group E, both 1-1 – before a 2-0 success at AEK Athens on matchday five.

• Ajax are the sole side still involved who came through qualifying. The other 15 participants in the round of 16 all entered the competition at the group stage.

• Ajax are one of only two sides to win a tie in the UEFA Champions League proper having lost the home first leg, against Panathinaikos in the 1995/96 semi-finals (0-1 home, 3-0 away).

• That is one of only two ties in which Ajax have won on aggregate after losing the home first leg; they have lost the other 12 contests. Those aggregate defeats include two in which the first game in Amsterdam finished 1-2, both against Juventus; in the 1996/97 UEFA Champions League semi-final (1-4 away) and the 2009/10 UEFA Europa League round of 32 (0-0 away).

• Ajax's record in six UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L5:
2-4 v Steaua Bucureşti, 2012/13 UEFA Europa League round of 32
2-4 Juventus, 1995/96 UEFA Champions League final
4-3 v Grêmio, 1995 European/South American Cup
2-4 v Bohemians Praha, 1984/85 UEFA Cup second round
0-3 v Juventus, 1977/78 European Champion Clubs' Cup quarter-final
3-5 v Levski Sofia, 1975/76 UEFA Cup third round

VAR explained: the four match-changing situations

Links and trivia
• This is one of only two ties in the round of 16 not featuring a reigning domestic champion, the other being Tottenham-Dortmund.

• Klaas-Jan Huntelaar joined Madrid from Ajax in January 2009, scoring eight goals in 20 appearances before leaving six months later. The Dutch striker faced the Merengues four times with Schalke, scoring three goals including two at the Bernabéu in the German side's 4-3 victory in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League round of 16 – a tie his club lost 5-4 on aggregate.

• Nicolás Tagliafico spent 2012/13 on loan in Spain with second division side Real Murcia.

• André Onana came through the Barcelona academy but never made a first-team appearance before joining Ajax in 2015.

Head coach Only this chapter

Santiago Solari

Date of birth: 7 October 1976
Nationality: Argentinian
Playing career: River Plate, Atlético Madrid, Real Madrid, Internazionale, San Lorenzo, Atlante, Peñarol
Coaching career: Real Madrid (youth teams), Real Madrid Castilla, Real Madrid

• A silky wide midfielder, Solari moved to Europe in January 1999, signing for Atlético after three seasons in River Plate's first team. His stay at the Rojiblancos lasted only 18 months, relegation prompting a switch across the city to Real Madrid in summer 2000.

• Five years at the Santiago Bernabéu brought Liga titles in 2001 and 2003 either side of European glory in 2001/02. Solari played 90 minutes in the UEFA Champions League final defeat of Bayer Leverkusen in Glasgow, setting Roberto Carlos away for the cross that led to Zinédine Zidane's memorable volleyed winner; the Argentinian was a late substitute (for Zidane) in Madrid's victories in the UEFA Super Cup and European-South American Cup later that year.

• Joined Inter in 2005, winning three successive Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia in his first season, before bringing down the curtain on his playing days in 2011 after spells in Argentina, Mexico and Uruguay.

• Won 11 caps for Argentina in a five-year international career, but did not feature in a major tournament.

• After a career in the media he returned to Real Madrid in 2013, initially as a youth team coach before being promoted to Castilla manager in 2016 when Zidane took over as head coach. Stepped up to the first team following Julen Lopetegui's departure on 29 October 2018.

Erik ten Hag

Date of birth: 2 February 1970
Nationality: Dutch
Playing career: Twente (three times), De Graafschap, RKC Waalwijk, Utrecht
Coaching career: Twente (youth, assistant), PSV Eindhoven (assistant), Go Ahead Eagles, Bayern München II, Utrecht, Ajax

• Born in Haaksbergen in the east Netherlands close to Enschede, Ten Hag's early days were spent with local club Bon Boys before a move to the youth department of Twente, where he made his professional debut aged 19 in December 1989.

• A defensive midfielder and defender, he then spent two seasons with De Graafschap, winning promotion to Eredivisie in his first, before returning to Twente for two years. Ten Hag moved on to single-season stays at both RKC Waalwijk and Utrecht, and then returned to Twente again in 1996, this time for good.

• Reached the last 16 of the 1997/98 UEFA Cup, losing to Auxerre, and in 2001 he won his only silverware with the club, Fred Rutten's team beating PSV Eindhoven on penalties in the Dutch Cup final with Ten Hag as captain.

• After ending his playing career in 2002 he became head of Twente's youth department, also working as assistant coach for several years, alongside Rutten from 2006/07. Followed the head coach to PSV in 2009, serving as his assistant for three seasons.

• Took his first post as head coach at Go Ahead Eagles, winning promotion to the Dutch top flight in his 2012/13 debut season, before moving on to Bayern München's second team, winning the Regionalliga title in 2014 and working with Josep Guardiola. Took over at Utrecht in summer 2015, winning the Rinus Michels award as the Netherlands' coach of the year 12 months later. Succeeded Marcel Keizer at Ajax in December 2017, leading the club to second place in the Eredivisie at the end of that campaign and into the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time in four years.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with AC Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) have all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Real Madrid then made it three wins in a row in 2017/18, becoming the fourth club to win three or more successive titles in European Cup history, and the first to do it twice.

• Only two teams have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Borussia Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome), while Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

Knockout stage
• Real Madrid have qualified for the UEFA Champions League knockout phase a record 23 times, including 22 in succession.

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 43 times. Only three times – Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos in the 1995/96 semi-finals and Real Madrid in this season's round of 16, and Internazionale's victory against Bayern in the 2010/11 round of 16 – has a side progressed after a home first-leg loss.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by Barcelona against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home; Roma equalled that margin in last season's quarter-finals, turning round a 4-1 first-leg loss at Barcelona with a 3-0 home success.

• Thirty ties have been decided on away goals, including 11 where the triumphant team lost the first leg. Bayern and Monaco have benefited from the away goals rule five times – more than any other club – whereas Internazionale have been eliminated by that method a record four times.

• In all, 28 ties have required extra time. Twelve have been settled by extra time alone: five round of 16 encounters, five quarter-finals, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool, and the 2013/14 final between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Lyon on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties. Bayern, Chelsea and Atlético Madrid have all appeared in three shoot-outs, sharing the competition record, with Bayern, Atlético and Liverpool having won the most (two apiece).

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Atlético Madrid and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid's defeat of Manchester City in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool (versus Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at Schalke in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting CP in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16.

• Bayern eventually beat Sporting by a record aggregate margin of 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie until it was equalled by Liverpool's 7-6 aggregate win against Roma in the 2007/08 semi-final.

• Bayern hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match having beaten both Basel (2011/12) and Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg.

• A record five clubs from England participated in the 2017/18 knockout phase. England has also provided four clubs on seven other occasions – as has Spain four times and Germany twice.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to lift the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) and Zinédine Zidane (2016, 2017, 2018) have replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburg 1983), José Mourinho (Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

Goalscoring records
• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in Barcelona's 7-1 win against Bayer Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat matched by Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Eleven more players, also including Messi, have scored four times in a game, most recently Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid on matchday six in 2015/16.

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, eclipsing his own mark of nine in 2013/14, which Luiz Adriano matched in 2014/15 and Ronaldo himself equalled in 2017/18. Lionel Messi got ten goals in 2016/17; Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013/14), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2004/05), Filippo Inzaghi, Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03) and Robert Lewandowski (2018/19) managed eight.

• Messi's hat-trick against PSV Eindhoven on matchday one of the 2018/19 competition was his eighth in the competition, one more than Ronaldo.

Oldest and youngest players
• Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete in the UEFA Champions League having featured against Real Madrid on matchday six in 2007/08 aged 43 years and 252 days. Alessandro Costacurta is the oldest outfield player; the Milan defender was 40 years and 211 days when he played against AEK Athens in 2006/07.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years and 59 days, in Roma's 1-1 draw at CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Celestine Babayaro is the youngest player to have appeared; he was 16 years and 87 days when he started for Anderlecht against Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994. He was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Peter Ofori-Quaye is the youngest player to have scored in the UEFA Champions League, aged 17 years and 195 days. He found the net in Olympiacos's 5-1 defeat at Rosenborg on 1 October 1997.
