Real Madrid coach Solari tribute to Ramos ahead of landmark game

Spare a thought for Real Madrid's players as they take on Ajax on Wednesday in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

The 32-year-old defender will move one game behind club legends Fernando Hierro and Paco Gento in the all-time appearance list at Madrid, and fourth behind Manolo Sanchis (710), Iker Casillas (725) and Raul Gonzalez (741).

Zidane's credentials of winning three consecutive Champions League trophies is said to present great allure to the Chelsea board, and an added bonus is that Eden Hazard, who looks Real Madrid-bound, also rates him highly.

"He has a wonderful character and he is tremendously competitive, that's why he has played so many games", he said. This historic Madrid side has the stamp of his character.

"He has been, and remains, a fantastic captain".

Live coverage of the match will be shown on BT Sport 3.

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

Ajax were left frustrated that they weren't able to go into the break into the lead having produced an impressive first-half display.

The latter, a 6-0 defeat at the Etihad Stadium, has turned up the heat on the Italian, and according to a report in the Telegraph, he has just two weeks to turn things around.

But Erik ten Hag's men could have an advantage with fans taking matters into their own hands as they did their best to derail Los Blancos' build-up.

"But we have to play and we have to play well". We have to focus on our football and enjoy it.

Nearly four months on, Vinicius has 22 appearances for the first team, the latest pair against Barcelona at the Nou Camp and Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.

"I feel now they might be more afraid than before", Courtois said.
