Tuesday UCL Rewind: Ajax shock Real Madrid, Tottenham eliminates Borussia Dortmund


Ajax defeated Real Madrid 4-1 on Tuesday as they eliminated defending Champions League winners Real Madrid from the competition.

The Dutch side opened the scoring in the seventh minute as Dusan Tadic opened his Man of the Match performance assisting Hakim Ziyech. Tadic picked up his second assist in the 18th minute as David Neres was the beneficiary of an electric dribbling sequence which was capped off by a goal from the Brazilian.

Tadic was not done as he picked out the top left-hand corner of Thibaut Courtois’ goal in the 62nd minute. Also finding the top corner of the goal was Lasse Schone whose effort found a spot over the head of the Belgian and into the back of the net from a tight-angled free kick.

Marco Asensio scored in the 70th minute giving Real Madrid fans hope but was quickly denied that sense thanks to Schone’s effort.

Ajax moved through on an aggregate¬†scoreline of 5-3 which featured Tuesday’s heroic effort at Santiago Bernab√©u Stadium.
