Sergio Ramos was seen filming for a documentary during Real Madrid’s crushing loss to Ajax at Santiago Bernabeu.
The Real Madrid captain deliberately took a yellow card in the first leg against Ajax, which proved costly for the Los Blancos.
As Real fell apart in the second leg at home, a helpless Sergio Ramos could do little but film his reaction for the eight-part documentary with Amazon Prime.
Ajax lost the first leg 2-1 but were the far better side in the game. The Dutch side seemed to continue from where they left, as they scored two quick-fire goals in the first half.
Dusan Tadic was immense for the side as he played a part in three of the four goals for Ajax on the night. Frenkie De Jong also provided a trailer to what was about to come for Real Madrid in the El Clasico next season, as he made life difficult for the Real Madrid midfielders.

What a night for Sergio Ramos.
– Missed the 2nd leg because he got deliberately yellow carded in the 1st leg so he would be free to play in the QFs.
– Watched his side get knocked out for the first time since 2015.
– Was recording a documentary about himself in the Bernabeu. pic.twitter.com/8Ng1uVsSIg

Marco Asensio scored the sole goal for the host side after Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Jr. were forced off the field with injuries within the first 45 minutes. Gareth Bale failed to shine for Real, while Karim Benzema missed significant chances to bring Real back in the tie.
The Champions League was the biggest opportunity for a silverware for Real Madrid after their Copa Del Rey loss to Barcelona. Their La Liga hopes have potentially come to an end after the Catalan side inflicted a second defeat on them within three days last week.
Santiago Solari’s future has come under massive speculation following the loss. According to reports, Real Madrid have already identified a three-man shortlist to replace the Spaniard, who took over the job only last year in October after the sacking of Julen Lopetegui.
Earlier, Sergio Ramos received a yellow card after a naive decision to intentionally go for a booking. The Real Madrid captain believed that the qualification was guaranteed after the side’s win in the first leg.
“Looking at the result, I would be lying if I said I didn’t force it,” Ramos had said after the game.
“It is not to underestimate the opponent nor to think that the series is over, but in football, you have to make hard calculations.”
Ramos miscalculated grossly, however, as he chose the occasion to film a scene for his 8-part documentary with Amazon Prime. The documentary revolves around the life of the footballer on and off the pitch.

Real Madrid’s season has potentially come to an end with the loss, and the documentary will detail one of the worst years for the Los Blancos in quite some time.
“I think I have never felt this awful, I do not know how to explain it,” Dani Carvajal, the Real Madrid defender said after the loss.
“This week everything has gone against us. Tonight we cannot look for excuses. Our opponents were better and they deserved to go through. We have to show our faces and not hide, our season has been a piece of s***.”
However, he asked is teammates to not hide after the Champions League loss and strive for further improvement.
“In one week, we’ve lost everything.
“[But] I don’t see this as the end of a cycle. We have a young team, but the margin for improvement is enormous; we have to face that and not shy away.”
Real Madrid are currently 12 points behind league leaders Barcelona, and five behind the second-placed Atletico Madrid. Getafe closed the gap with Santiago Solari’s side to six points after Barcelona defeated Real in the league last weekend.
The side returns to action in La Liga on Sunday night, when they take on Real Valladolid.
