Chelsea FC identify top target to replace Maurizio Sarri

Pedja Mijatovic

Marco Asensio left it late as holders Real Madrid secured a first leg lead over Ajax. If we're able to defy the odds and get a result tonight, we'll have one foot in the last 16 of the competition.

But three minutes from time, Asensio popped up with the victor for Real.

Uefa have opened an investigation into Sergio Ramos following comments he made after his booking against Ajax in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

In a vibrant display they hit the woodwork, tested Thibaut Courtois frequently and had a goal ruled out by the video assistant referee before Benzema struck.

A string of poor results in the recent past against Bournemouth and Manchester City have put Sarri's job at Stamford Bridge under enormous pressure. After that Skomina disallowed the goal for offside by Tadic.

Ziyech, who had equalised with 15 minutes of normal time left only to see Asensio snatch a late victor midweek, insists Ajax can go to the Santiago Bernabeu for the return leg without fear.

"I'm a big advocate of the VAR system and gradually it'll make football fairer".

"It is not to underestimate the opposition but sometimes you have to make tough decisions", said Ramos after the match.

The home side thought they had profited from a horror error by Courtois, who allowed a Donny van de Beek header to spill from his grasp and Tagliafico nodded the rebound into an empty net.

But just before the hour mark Benzema made the breakthrough with his 60th Champions League goal on his 450th Real appearance.

"Whatever Maurizio Sarri feels is the best way to do that, we will all go along with, but there seems to be a sense that the way they're playing has been cottoned on by the other teams".

"We dominated, forced many chances, but scored too little".

"It's not good for [Sarri] and the team because the results have not been good, but it's good for us to change this dynamic now [in the Europa League]".
