Ajax produced a stunning 4-1 victory in the Santiago Bernabeu and as a result Real Madrid crashed out of the Champions League. Ajax are now through to the quarter-finals for the first time in 22 years.
This is momentous for Ajax, said coach Erik ten Hag. Almost no one believed in us, not even the specialists, but our loyal fans did.
Real Madrid defender Nacho said his team were ‘heart broken. ‘Were eliminated from a competition in a disgraceful manner, a tournament where weve been kings for a very long time,’ he said.
Ajax fans hit the streets to party all night and celebrate their unanticipated victory over the Spanish giants, who will not feature in the Champions League final for the 1st time in 3 years.
