With second place already assured, and with no hope of catching leaders Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid had little to play for against Ajax on Tuesday evening. Mourinho still included the goal hungry Ronaldo in his starting line-up though, and with less than a quarter of an hour on the clock he opened the scoring after Modric won the ball in midfield and put Benzema away for him to cross in to the area. Modric was in action again a few minutes later to set up Callejón for a second, and it could have been more by the break had Vermeer not made good saves from Benzema, Ronaldo and Khedira. The Dutch side were still in with a chance of qualifying for the Europa League, but they didn't trouble Adán until Fischer finally got a shot on target two minutes before half time. And some four minutes after the restart Kaká made it three after picking up a short pass from Ronaldo before curling a shot past the keeper. Frank De Boer's side did eventually get one back after a wild punch clear by Adán allowed Boerrigter to turn the ball back in to the net, but with the game coming to an end Callejón headed in his second of the night after Morata crossed in from the right wing. It was not all bad news for Ajax though, as a defeat for Manchester City in Germany confirmed that they make it through to the E-League despite the result.
