Madrid have won the Champions League for three seasons in a row but were dismantled by Ajax as the Santiago Bernabeu's nerves were shredded on a thrilling evening in the capital. Madrid had reached at least the semifinals in eight straight seasons and hadn't failed to make it past the round of 16 since 2010.

Madrid president Florentino Perez is now faced with deciding whether it is worth keeping Solari until the end of the season, let alone beyond the summer.

Bale had started the defeat to Barcelona in La Liga on Saturday but the Welshman departed to whistles in the second half and was dropped for the return against Ajax, with Madrid 2-1 ahead from the first leg.

Moroccan midfielder Hakim Ziyech fired the Dutch side into a shock seventh-minute lead after a lay off from the outstanding Dusan Tadic, who also provided the pass for David Neres to double the Dutch side's advantage in the 18th.

Madrid endured rotten fortune throughout the game, losing Lucas Vazquez and livewire Brazilian teenager Vinicius Junior to injury in the first half.

Bosa (6-foot-4, 266 pounds) recorded a 4.79 time in the 40 with a 1.65 10-yard split, while Allen elected not to run. Following Sweat's impressive 40-yard dash drill, social media exploded with admiration, shock and humorous quips.

While the Spanish hosts could have found themselves 1-0 up after five minutes when Raphael Varane headed against the bar from 6 yards, it was merely a false opening as to what would follow.

Tadic added a goal of his own to go along with two assists, placing the ball perfectly in the top left 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. Then was caught out as Lasse Schone killed the tie dead by embarrassing the Belgian with a free kick from a tight angle. And it also means that this game will probably be the very last we see of this youthful and entertaining Ajax side on a big European stage, with Frenkie de Jong Barcelona-bound in the summer and the likes of Matthijs de Ligt reportedly also set to leave.

While Marco Asensio had pulled one back for Real at 3-0 down with 20 minutes left, they deservedly crashed out 5-3 on aggregate, ending any hopes of retaining a title which they have won for the past three seasons and have held for more than 1,000 days. Nacho was sent off for a clash with van de Beek and Madrid were in tatters.
