Bayern Munich and Ajax have both won the European Cup three times in a row but only Madrid have managed more, when they lifted five on the bounce in the 1950s.

"He's shown his development as a player", Madrid coach Santiago Solari said.

"Frenkie is fit", Ajax coach Erik ten Hag said earlier on Tuesday. We did, but you have to be more ruthless.

"His adaptation has been very fast", Solari said.

Ramos will play his 600th game as a Real Madrid defender on Wednesday and Solari hailed his captain's influence on the team.

The visitors came out firing in the second half and they almost went ahead after 50 minutes when Dani Carvajal played in Karim Benzema, who saw his first-time strike saved by Andre Onana.

Vinicius chased a ball over the top down the left wing and cut inside before finding Benzema, who sent an unerring finish across Anona and high into the net.

Tadic then held off Sergio Ramos to fire in a shot that hit the post, and Ziyech missed another one-on-one chance with Courtois as Ajax's incisive passing stretched the visitors.

Ajax got the goal their play deserved with 15 minutes remaining as Ziyech side-footed home after a sweeping move, latching on to a delivery from David Neres on the left.

Real head into the match full of confidence after a 3-1 win in the Madrid derby at the weekend, which was their sixth victory in a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions.

Tagliafico took advantage of a Thibaut Courtois error to give his side the lead against Real Madrid in the first leg of their knockout match.

They were also denied a first-half opener when Nicolas Tagliafico headed home but for the first time in Champions League history, the goal was ruled out after Slovenian referee Damir Skomina checked with the VAR and Dusan Tadic was judged offside.
