Match Events

7' GOAL! Real Madrid 0-1 Ajax (Ziyech)

Ziyech gives Ajax the lead on the night! Kroos loses the ball down the right wing and Tadic drives towards the edge of the area before pulling the ball back for Ziyech.

From the edge of the box, the Moroccan finds the bottom left corner of the net. 1-0.

18' GOAL! Real Madrid 0-2 Ajax (Neres)

Ajax have doubled their lead through Neres! Tadic does superbly well to spin away from Casemiro before driving towards the penalty area.

The Serbian spots the run of Neres to his right and slots the ball into the Brazilian who calmly dinks the ball over Courtois and into the net. 2-0.

62' GOAL! Real Madrid 0-3 Ajax (Tadic)

Tadic makes it three! The Serbian finds space inside the Real Madrid box and beautifully bends the ball into the top left corner of the net after being found by Van de Beek.

After going to VAR, the goal is given after the ball was ruled to not have gone out of play earlier in the move.

70' GOAL! Real Madrid 1-3 Ajax (Asensio)

Madrid pull one back through Asensio! Reguilon gets away down the left flank and spots Asensio in acres on space on the left side of the penalty area.

After receiving the ball, the Spaniard strokes his first-time effort into the bottom right corner and beyond Onana. 3-1.

72' GOAL! Real Madrid 1-4 Ajax (Schone)

Schone scores another for Ajax and what a goal it was! 

The visitors won a free-kick just inside from the left wing after Casemiro brought down Tadic, and Schone completely fools Courtois as the midfielder sends the free-kick over the head of the Belgian and into the top right corner. That was sublime. 4-1.

93' Second Yellow Card! Nacho sent off

RED CARD! Nacho appeared to have stomped on Van de Beek in the aftermath of that challenge and the Spaniard is sent off by the referee!

Match Reports

After winning Europe's elite club tournament in three consecutive years under Zinedine Zidane, a tough first campaign since the French icon's departure was capped in remarkable fashion on Tuesday in a 5-3 aggregate loss.

Madrid fell apart in the first half and saw their 2-1 first-leg lead overturned in the opening 20 minutes by goals from Hakim Ziyech and David Neres as Ajax ran riot.

The irrepressible Dusan Tadic added another with a controversial second-half strike, leaving Madrid requiring three goals to stay in the competition, and although Marco Asensio got one back, a fourth home defeat in a row never looked in doubt as Lasse Schone made it four.
