Champions League shock as defending champions Real Madrid crash out

Thirteen-times winners Madrid, who have lifted the trophy in four of the last five years, and had reached at least the semi-finals for the last eight seasons, suffered their earliest elimination since 2010.

Madrid are now 12 points off Barcelona in La Liga, third in the table and with the Champions League as their only realistic chance of silverware this season.

Solari could have few complaints.

Real Madrid will host Ajax on Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Tuesday in the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 series.

Ajax needed less than 20 minutes to reverse a 2-1 deficit from the first leg, with Hakim Ziyech scoring in the seventh minute and David Neres in the 18th.

FW Lucas Vazquez, 5 - One excellent cross set up Varane's header off the post, but otherwise, Vazquez was anonymous before leaving injured on 28 minutes.

Sergio Ramos was in the stands, having earned a deliberate booking to clear his ban, believing the tie was already won.

FW Vinicius Junior, 7 - As so often recently, his dribbles forward looked Madrid's best chance of a goal.

Ajax then found a remarkable third, once again hitting Madrid on the counter with Tadic providing the stellar finishing touch to beat Courtois from 18 yards away and put his team 3-0 up.

Real headed into half-time with boos ringing in their ears, but it was to get worse 15 minutes into the second half when Tadic curled the ball into the top corner.

The cheers stopped as referee Felix Brych waited for VAR, with the ball appearing to have gone out for a throw before Noussair Mazraoui slid to keep it in.

Here is another angle of the Schone goal.

Marco Asensio pulled one back for Madrid, giving them momentary hope, but Lasse Schone's spectacular, dipping free-kick slammed that door in their face as soon as it opened, ensuring Madrid's era of European dominance is finally at an end. Frenkie de Jong was at the heart of their play and helped dictate proceedings by winning the midfield battle.
