Daley Blind is happy that Ajax Monday is linked to Real Madrid in the eighth finals of the Champions League. The defender is the winner of a “great opponent”.
“We have with z’n all everything in the spelershome followed. At a given moment, it would be FC Porto or Real Madrid. It was Real and then to have cried and on the tables beaten,” says the defender.
The enthusiasm was, according to Blind not motivated by the lesser results of the last few weeks of Real, last week, in their own homes, yet surprisingly with less than 0-3 lost to CSKA Moscow.

“Moreover, we are only in February and march against Real. Then everything can be different. Real has four of the last five editions of the Champions League won. That is just a beautiful poster. We look really forward to it.”
