Real Madrid can take another step closer to surviving the "group of death" on Wednesday when they travel to Amsterdam to play a talented Ajax squad for the clubs' second Champions League match of the season.

When Madrid prepared to take on Premier League side Manchester City in their first Champions League match of the season two weeks ago, the club's form in La Liga was awful and optimism was incredibly low.

The Spanish side badly needed a win, and they got it thanks to 90th-minute goal from Cristiano Ronaldo to earn a 3-2 victory. Ever since that emotional win, Madrid has dominated in league play by outscoring opponents 7-1 in two victories.

Continuing their fine domestic form in European play won't be an easy task for Madrid because Ajax is also playing well at the moment. The Dutch club has not lost a single match in any domestic competition this year, which is quite impressive.

However, they did lose to Borussia Dortmund 1-0 in their first Champions League match of the season. Ajax is capable of earning a draw against Madrid, but they will need to defend extremely well.

Ronaldo and French striker Karim Benzema, each of whom scored against City two weeks ago, are two of the best goal scorers in the world and will be a difficult pair for Ajax to stop on Wednesday.

While defending these two attacking stars will be a challenge, limiting the effectiveness of Mesut Ozil needs to be priority No. 1 for Ajax.

If Ajax do not prevent Ozil from dominating the midfield, the Dutch club's chances of earning at least a point from this match will decrease significantly.

Let's look at the information you need to catch all the action from Amsterdam.
