Real Madrid v Ajax - UEFA Champions League Round of 16: Second Leg

Real Madrid: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Reguilon, Modric, Casemiro, Kroos, Lucas, Benzema, Vinicius

Ajax: Onana, Mazraoui, De Ligt, Blind, Tagliafico, Schone, De Jong, Van de Beek, Neres, Tadic, Ziyech

Score: Real Madrid 1-4 Ajax


For the first time since 2015, Real Madrid have suffered a Champions League exit following their defeat against Ajax in the second leg of the Round of 16 clash.

With just seven minutes on the clock, Ziyech gave Ajax the lead after Tadic teed up the Moroccan, who guided a left-footed shot into the bottom corner.

The lead was soon doubled by Neres in the 18th minute when Tadic, after spinning away from Casemiro, picked out the 22-year-old's run and nudged a perfect pass through to him. Neres then dinked the ball over Courtois in a composed manner.

Close to the hour mark, Dušan Tadić worsened the situation for Real Madrid as he made it 3-0.

The Serbian found space inside the opposition box and beautifully leathered the ball into the top left corner of the net. The goal was awarded after a delay of four minutes due to the confusion regarding the tackle by Mazraoui on Reguilon by the touchline.

Marco Asensio gave the Bernabeu crowd some hope as he scored Los Blancos' first goal in the 70th minute. It was Reguilon who went down the left and spotted Asensio on the left side of the penalty area. The Spaniard steered a low shot past Onana into the bottom corner.

Nevertheless, Schone's peach of a goal from a free-kick immediately after put the final nail in the coffin as Solari's side crashed out of the Champions League.

Here's how Twitter reacted to the nail-biting encounter.
