Ready for Ajax – Real Madrid on February 13th

In less than a week, it will be time for the fantastic match between Ajax and Real Madrid at Amsterdam Arena in Amsterdam. Are you going to be there in person?

The people of Amsterdam weren’t to happy about getting Real Madrid as their opponent in the first stage of the knockout part of the Champions League in 2018-19. But, with an Ajax team in great shape and with lots of good results behind them, what better team to beat than Real Madrid?

Ajax will play against Real Madrid on February 13th

The first match between the teams will be played at Amsterdam Arena on February 12th and it will start around 21.00. It will be an amazing game, and we truly cheer for Ajax to beat the crap out of the team from Madrid. But, it isn’t going to be easy as Real Madrid has been playing fairly well recently, and they just played 1-1 against Barcelona at Nou Camp. In addition, Karim Benzema seems to get a hold of hitting the net, so the team from Amsterdam might want to watch especially out for him.

What to expect at the Amsterdam Arena

The fantastic venue in Amsterdam has space for more than 50,000 people, and it will for sure be packed on February 13th. Did you know that this amazing stadium actually has a retractable roof, and it takes around 20 minutes to open or to close it. That is kind of cool, isn’t it? It was the first stadium in Europe to have such a roof above their stadium.

None of the players at the Real Madrid team now were present at the stadium in 1998, but back then, Real Madrid won a Champions League final against Juventus at this very stadium (1-0).

Where to watch Ajax – Real Madrid?

You can watch the match at the actual stadium (instructions on how to get there will come later). But, if you cannot be there at the stadium, the match will be shown at all the sports pubs and restaurants around town. If you’d rather just sit on your own and watch it on your computer or tablet, you can read more about how and where to stream Ajax – Real Madrid online in this article.

How to get to Amsterdam Arena?

Are you going to the match between Ajax and Real Madrid, but wonder how you can actually get to Amsterdam Arena? It is very easy!

The fastest way to get to the stadium is by taking a train from Amsterdam Central to the station named Bijlmer ArenA. This is a ride that takes around 15 minutes, and you will be just by the stadium as you leave the train.

If you want to use the metro instead, travel with metro 54 from the center of Amsterdam to the stop with the same name, and you will get to the stadium quickly (though a little bit slower than you would taking the train).

The exact address of the venue is ArenA Boulevard 1, 1101 AX Amsterdam.

Go for it Dusan Tadic, Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Hakim Ziyech, Donny van de Beek and Kasper Dolberg!

These are the guys who have scored most goals for Ajax so far this season. Dusan Tadic has a total of 22 goals so far, while Huntelaar has scored 15 goals, and Ziyech following with 14 goals. That is a lot of goals, meaning that Ajax is a team that should be watched out for.

As we wrote earlier, Karim Benzema is the Real Madrid player with most goals so far this season (18 in total). Behind him comes Gareth Bale (11), and then the defender Sergio Ramos (10).

Ajax – Schalke 04 [Europe League quarter-final]

On April 13th Ajax Amsterdam will play against Schalke 04 in the first of two matches in the Europe League quarter-finals. If you want to be there at Amsterdam Arena, read on!

April will be a fantastic month for football fans all across the world. Not only will there be played some extraordinary Champions League quarter finals (Real Madrid vs Bayern Munchen and Juventus vs FC Barcelona), but also in the Europe League there are some great matches coming up. Ajax Amsterdam managed to beat FC Kobenhavn in the last leg in the Europe League, and now they are ready for one of the big teams in the German Bundesliga, Schalke 04.

On the paper the matches should be tight, but maybe Ajax Amsterdam are small favorites in front of the matches. It would be fantastic to get a Dutch team back into the top of the European club tournaments again, so we will cheer for Ajax and let us hope that after the matches on April 13th and April 20th, Ajax will be among the teams ready for a Europe League semi-final.

His father, Peter Williams is a comic by the name Pete Conway, he has worked in the entertainment for 30 years, but he has never become really famous. His mother, Jan Williams, she is the greatest fan of his son. Robbie’s parents divorced when the boy was three years old. The singer and the whole world could thank the success to Williams’ mother, who found the advertising in the newspaper, what searched for a man singer to a band. However Robbie dreamt about actor career, he became the member of the popular boy group, the Take That. He left the band in 1995, and he started solo career, what has more or less barriers, but it’s still successful.

The world heard a lot about Robbie and his drug and alcohol problems, but nowadays, he is a loving husband and father besides his wife, Ayda Field and common child, Theodora Rose.

Muse concert Amsterdam 2013

I am sure everybody in the world knows the name of the famous English rock band, the Muse. The group from Devon is a very important part of the today modern rock music. They wrote very famous songs, for example the Supermassive Black Hole or the Starlight.

The group formed in the English county, Devon, in the city of Teignmouth. The members are Matthew Bellamy, Christopher Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard. Some people could hear the style of another popular band, the Radiohead on their songs. However the Radiohead had a big influence to the Muse, we can’t say they are the same. The Muse created their own style with fantastic guitar solos and special voice.

The Muse released their new album, the 2nd Law in 2012, and because of that they started a giant worldwide concert tour to celebrate. The 2nd Law Tour 2013 started at September 2012 and the end will be at September 2013. The band started the tour in the Great Britain and after that they visited European countries. Even so, the European fans could get ready for the Muse, because the band walks around Europe again, for example the capital of Netherland, the wonderful Amsterdam.

Do not miss this unforgettable early summer program. Just think about it; what could be a more perfect program to start this summer, than some amazing day in Amsterdam and a crazy Muse concert at 4 June 2013 in the Amsterdam Arena?

Have fun for it!
