Real Madrid ended the group stage of the Champions League with six wins out of six after beating Ajax 0-3 in their last group game. Mourinho gave a run out to some of his lesser used players, and with just under a quarter of an hour gone Callejón beat the offside trap to collect Kaká's through ball and open the scoring. The Dutch side felt themselves unlucky however to have two goals disallowed incorrectly for offside by Portuguese referee Da Sousa, Lodeiro heading the first past Adán after the keeper failed to hold on to a shot from Van der Wiel, and Suleimani deflecting Anita's shot past the keeper with his chest soon afterwards. It would prove to be an important set-back for the locals, and things got worse for them when Higuaín picked up a long pass from Benzema to make it two shortly before the break. Ajax kept going though, Suleimani lobbing a shot against the bar and Becilio bringing a couple of good saves out of Adán, but with the game in injury time Callejón wrapped things up with a third goal after Xabi Alonso put him through. With news coming in that Olympique Lyon had beaten Dinamo Zagreb 1-7 to pip Frank De Boer's side to second spot on goal difference, the Amsterdam Arena was like a morgue. Madrid though had their fifteenth win in a row, and Mourinho's side will set a new club record if they can win next Saturday... at home to Barcelona!
