The Champions League match between Real Madrid and Ajax will be broadcast live on TNT.

Ajax Amsterdam stunned Real Madrid to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals after a 4-1 second-leg win to complete a historic 5-3 aggregate comeback victory.

Tadic first darted in behind Nacho Fernandez to square for Ziyech to sidefoot into the bottom left corner and then the Serbia worldwide left Casemiro in a spin and played in Neres for a calm finish.

"I think in the last 10 years they have won it twice so I think there is a big gap in the success in the knockout competition and not so much success in the marathons of the league".

In the end, the club renowned for assembling its team with expensive "Galactico" signings was undone by a club centered around a core of homegrown young talents.

Minutes later, Ajax capitalised on a defensive blunder from Madrid and Tadic teed up Hakim Ziyech for a superb first-time finish to give the Eredivisie club an early 1-0 lead.

The night that Ajax imposed their will on Real Madrid in the Spanish capital will be remembered for a long time, not because of the painful nature of a 4-1 loss, but rather because it means saying goodbye to a team that has declined to an nearly unthinkable level when you assess the individual names on the team sheet.

Meanwhile, Sweat, the former Mississippi State defensive lineman , made his workout look like it was, well, no sweat. He did struggle in the bench press and vertical jump with last-place finishes among his position group in each event.

The humiliating defeat, Real's fourth on the spin at home, compounded a miserable week for Real after they were damaging defeats to Barcelona in La Liga and the Copa del Rey.

"I have heard some comments from him on Bein Sports last weekend saying "Of course, if Real Madrid calls me I would be very happy, very proud to come back again".

In the group stage this season, it had lost 3-0 to CSKA Moscow at the Bernabeu for what had been its worst ever European loss.

Sergio Ramos was in the stands, having earned a deliberate booking to clear his ban, believing the tie was already won.

Tadic had rolled Casemiro in midfield during the build-up in a sublime piece of skill so often seen by Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane.

Real had to make two substitutions in the first half with Gareth Bale and Marco Asensio replacing Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior, both through injury.

Vinicius Junior was hurt at the end of a long run in which he almost opened the scoring for Madrid.
