Real Madrid's main coach, Santiago Solari, commented on the victory over Ajax (2: 1) in the first match of the 1/8 Champions League final.
Ajax saved the power of this game and today they scattered all their energy, forcing us to sweat, limiting us to the field.
Very happy for Asensio. He entered the game very well, worked well and scored a very important goal. He confirmed his progress.
Our rival locked us, tilted us, acted aggressively, often on the edge of a foul. But we knew how to behave, resist, and score points at the right time.
Coaches do not have monitors to review the episode. We believe what the lime and the judges say.
I am very pleased with the performance of each player. To win here, every player had to make every effort to give everything in full.
This is the Champions League. There are no easy matches or simple rivals. We have to work hard to win, "said the coach.
