See how football fans reacted to Madrid’s humiliating ouster from ther Champions League
The three-time consecutive European champions were knocked out of Europe's top competition yesterday after Ajax overturned a 2-1 first-leg deficit with a 4-1 victory at the Santiago Bernabeu.
This was inspired by the absence of Real Madrid skipper, Sergio Ramos, who was serving a two-game ban after deliberately picking up a caution in the first leg.
Hakim Ziyach, David Neres, Dusan Tadic and Lasse Schone all found the back of the net for Erik ten Hag's side, as Marco Asensio's strike on 72 minutes proved to be only a consolation for the Galacticos.
The defeat, which was Madrid's fourth consecutive lose at home, is their biggest ever margin of defeat in a knockout game in European competitions.
With an average age of 24, Ajax is one of the youngest teams still left in the competition this season.
Speaking after the game, Ajax director of football, Marc Overmars, said of his side: “Our wage budget for the 1st, 2nd and youth team is 28 million. That's as much as Gareth Bale earns in a year. What Real Madrid pays for one player is used for our entire squad.”
Shocked by the final outcome of the tie, football fans have gone on social media to troll the European giants who are most likely going to end the season trophyless.
Memes, stats and a timely reminder of what was expected after the club failed to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with another world-class signing have emerged.
Below are some of the funniest of the lot.
