Luka Modric believes Ajax can cause his Real Madrid side problems in the second leg of their Champions League clash on Tuesday.

Ajax dominated the first-leg in Amsterdam but couldn’t take their chances before falling to a 2-1 defeat.

Despite their advantage, Modric isn’t taking Ajax lightly and believes Real Madrid are in for a tough test in the Bernabeu.

He said, ‘I do not believe that Ajax will change much compared to the match in Amsterdam. They often play the same way at home and away from home.

“Ajax has nothing to lose and everything to win. It will be a dangerous game for us against a very good and ambitious team. We expect ninety complicated minutes. We have to stay patient and calm and play as a team.”

When asked which Ajax player made a big impression on him in the first-leg, Modric wouldn’t name anyone but said, “They have shown that they have talented players in many positions. They have caused us many problems in Amsterdam. They have a lot of players with a big future for themselves.”
