Ajax knock Real Madrid out of Champions League

Liverpool FC and Man United linked with move to sign top 26-year-old – report

Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior was forced to hobble off injured in tears as Ajax gave a nightmare experience to the Champions League title holders on Tuesday.

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.

"Given what he did for us and this club, we miss Cristiano", Modric said, as per Marca.

After getting booked in the first leg on objective with Real Madrid leading 2-1, predicting that his side would make the quarterfinals of the Champions League, Sergio Ramos was suspended for Tuesday's loss to Ajax.

- Madrid have lost four successive games at the Bernabéu for just the third occasion in their history - also doing so in 1995 and 2004. Like his players, Solari must shoulder a portion of the blame for Real Madrid's woes this season, especially due to his mismanagement of playing time.

In truth, anyone who has watched Real Madrid this year would have expected this outcome.

Real did pull one back in the 70th minute when Marco Asensio sneaked a low shot through a crowded box and inside Andre Onana's far post.

Coach Santiago Solari may yet cling to his job until the end of the season but surely stands no chance of remaining for the next campaign after overseeing an almighty collapse to an exciting yet largely inexperienced Ajax side.

"It is clear the season is over but we will continue working in the league because that's what we have to do and we have to be professional". In fact, they have now lost three of their last 10 home games in the Champions League and the last four straight in all competitions.

Truth be told, the club did realize that a rebuild was necessary after last season. Madrid is a very big club, any player with quality would like to wear their shirt.

"This is probably the best game of football I've ever played", Tadic said.

This is the end of a cycle that, probably, should have ended a year ago but was extended thanks to the unique combination of talent and experience, spit and gravel.

For Real defender Dani Carvajal, the loss came as a hammer blow. The uber-calm German, amazingly, now appears really low on confidence.
