Real Madrid, one of the most prestigious and decorated european soccer clubs leaves his favourite competition which it won 13 times already from the back door. The previous champion was stunned by an electric dutch club Ajax with a 4-1(5-3 aggregate) victory in the Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid’s home stadium.
The club who goes through a tough season after their star manager and player Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo left the club last summer to which the club hasn’t found any good replacement yet, already lost two ‘El Classicos’ against major rival FC Barcelona in the spanish league La Liga and the spanish cup La Copa del rey which leaves it in the verge of a titleless season as they are 12 points behind leaders FC Barcelona in La Liga.
Ajax ended a 5 years reign of Real Madrid sitting on the throne of europe as the spanish club won 4 Champions Leagues in the last 5 years three of which were in row from 2016 to 2018. This will probably result in major changes next summer in the Real Madrid squad to rebuild the strong team we have known for years as media rumors suggest.
