It’s not often teams take the p*ss out of Real Madrid.
A youthful Ajax side are doing just that to the reigning Champions League holders.
Frenkie de Jong and co stunned the Bernabeu into silence with two quick-fire first half goals.
It’s not just their goals that were so impressive but the pure arrogance of Erik ten Hag’s side has embarrassed Los Blancos.
After Hakim Yiyech opened the scoring, David Neres then harvested the soul of Dani Carvajal in a moment the Spaniard will never want to see again.
Neres’ day then got even better when he netted Ajax’s second.
In the buildup to the goal, former Southampton man Dusan Tadic made the usually faultless Casemiro look like Emmanuel Frimpong.
As things stand Madrid will be crashing out at the round of 16 for the first time since 2010.
Lyon were the last side to knock Los Blancos out at this stage of the Champions League.
The irony of Madrid’s toothless defensive display comes in a game that Sergio Ramos missed by deliberately picking up a booking.
I’m not sure anything is going to top that this season.
- Virigl van Dijk’s season is shaping up in eerily similar fashion to John Terry’s 2004/05 campaign
- Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund are more inherently linked than ever before
- Harry Kane is no longer the most important Harry at Spurs
