Luka Modrić and Real Madrid escaped Holland with a 2-1 road victory against Ajax after an incredibly controversial VAR ruling denied Ajax their opening goal in the first half. Real Madrid would finally get into their normal rhythm in the second half with Benzema knocking one into the upper left corner and Marco Asensio scoring the winner late off a wonderful cross from the sideline. Modrić had an average game and pushed forward when he could but was not as active in the Madrid offense as he usually is. With two away goals and a victory on the road, Real Madrid are half way to the CL quarterfinals.
 

 


 

 

 ——————————————————————-

 

 
Luka Modrić and reigning European champions Real Madrid face a tricky Ajax tie in the Champions League Round of 16 Wednesday night from Amsterdam.

 

 

After a ridiculously slow start to the season, Real Madrid are hitting on more cylinders than ever in the past six months; only trailing La Liga leaders Barcelona by six points. Los Blancos have also made it to the Copa del Rey semifinals, where they drew Barcelona 1-1 at Nou Camp in the first leg.

 

 

With a good showing against Dutch side Ajax, Real Madrid can push forward in Champions League to defend their crown. However, it will be the toughest season yet at they will not have Ronaldo this time around in the knockout rounds.

 

 

Luka Modrić will have to be in his best CL form yet if the club is going to embark on more European silverware this season; but it will come as under dogs the rest of the way. Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester City are all better clubs at the moment and Modrić & Co. will have to break out their bag of tricks if they want to replicate their domincace in Europe over the past decade.

    Viktoria Plzen – Dinamo Zagreb today at 3pm EST in the first leg of the Europa League round of 32.

    The Czech side is currently second in their league and has won 6 straight Europa League matches at home.

    No Croatian side has ever won an away match in the Czech Republic. Dinamo one of 7 sides who went unbeaten in the group stage this year.

    Not sure if this link will work, but, give it a try.

    Now after Croatia magical World Cup run and exposure to the World i see other nationalities wearing our jerseys almost like how people wear Spain,Germany and England. I guess being in the World Cup Final lets the World know who Croatia is it was the best promotion by just being there we have already won.

    The Aussie Rules strip looks good, but boy would a black strip with a red and white checkered sash look way better, Richmond style minus the yellow sash!
