Shellshocked Real Madrid knocked out of Champions League by brilliant Ajax

Set to celebrate a move to Barcelona

Real Madrid entered the game with a 2-1 aggregate lead after taking care of business away from home against the Dutch side, and most thought they would do the same back in Madrid.

Tadic, who joined Ajax from Southampton past year, put in a fantastic performance at the Bernabeu to help his side reach the quarter finals of Europe's elite competition.

"Of course we miss Cristiano", Luka Modric said.

Dusan Tadic, the Serbia striker who rarely captured the headlines during four seasons with Southampton, was catapulted on to the European stage last night with a stunning performance that helped to knock Real Madrid out of the Champions League.

The two matches, which ended 0-3 and 0-1, were the ultimate confirmation that Real Madrid's most urgent problem this season is its inability to generate goals.

In a match that will go down in Dutch football history, Ajax hammered Real Madrid 4-1 in the Bernabeu to progress to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Ajax came into the game 2-1 down on aggregate after losing the first leg in Amsterdam and few predicted such an upset would occur - and in such a manner - for the repeat leg.

Speaking to MMAFighting.com, Covington confirmed that he wanted to be released if he wasn't given the title fight next. This will be Lawler's first fight since a December 2017 bout with dos Anjos, a fight in which he tore his ACL.

Solari's job will also be at risk having been defeated in back-to-back Clasicos in the past week, with a shock Champions League elimination likely to spell the end of his reign. Marco Asensio had pulled the hosts closer a couple of minutes earlier.

Serbian forward Dusin Tadic was a menace for Madrid's defence, assisting the visitors' first two goals and scoring their third.

The Champions League was their last hope to rescue this season but Ajax's incredible display at the Bernabeu extinguished their hopes.

They capitalised on the absence of Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, who is missing the game through suspension.

MF Casemiro, 4 - Badly caught out for both of Ajax's first two goals, especially when bamboozled completely by Tadic's roulette before the Serbian set up the second. If Real were to have any hope, they had to strike after half-time. With nothing left to play for, Real Madrid now embark on their longest off-season in 42 years.

For Real defender Dani Carvajal, the loss came as a hammer blow.
