Ajax stuns Real Madrid; Tottenham shuts out Borussia Dortmund in round of 16 legs

Real Madrid vs. Ajax:

Ajax defeated Real Madrid 4-1(5-3 aggregate) in leg 2 of their round of 16 matchup in the UEFA Champions League to advance to the quarterfinals. This will be Ajax’s first quarterfinal appearance in the UCL since 2002-2003. Madrid had won the previous three UCL titles, but since the loss of Zidane and Ronaldo, have looked sluggish and out of touch.

Goals:

Real Madrid: Asensio(70′)

Ajax: Ziyech(7′), Neres(18′), Tadić(62′), Schöne(72′)

Borussia Dortmund vs. Tottenham:

Tottenham shuts out Borussia Dortmund in both legs of their round of 16 matchup (4-0 aggregate) to advance to the quarterfinals of Champions League. This is Tottenham’s first UCL quarterfinal appearance since 2010-2011. Dortmund started off the season on fire, leading Bundesliga by a wide margin, but as we approach the final stretch of the European season, their youth and lack of experience have been exposed by the veteran German clubs and Tottenham made it apparent to the international audience. Dortmund is now tied at the top of the Bundesliga table with Bayern Munich and is now out of the UCL tournament.

Goals:

Tottenham: Kane(49′)
