Watch the video of Dusan Tadic’s outrageous skill to destroy Casemiro and produce an assist.
Real Madrid entered into the game with a two away goals and a one-goal lead from Amsterdam. But, that was not enough to save the Los Blancos who were totally destroyed 4-1 by the young Ajax side at Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday. The Dutch outfit won the two-legged tie with an aggregate of 5-3.
From minute one, the visitors showed plenty of purpose to drive the ball forward and took the game to the opposition half. Erik ten Hag’s side took the lead when they broke the ball forward quickly, and Hakim Ziyech found the back of the net handling no chance for Thibaut Courtois whatsoever in the seventh minute.
They had a fantastic chance to double the score, but the ball just went above the crossbar. However, they doubled their lead when Real Madrid’s defence went for a walk eleven minutes later.
Dusan Tadic went past Casemiro with outrageous skill and assisted the ball to David Neres, who had to beat the Belgian shot-stopper in a one-v-one situation. It was a fantastic movement from the Serbian International to tie up his fellow teammate.
Fans went mad after seeing this from Dusan Tadic to totally destroy Casemiro in the process.

It was a fabulous skillset to get away from Casemiro to set up Neres. The fans went berserk after seeing that incident.
Dusan Tadic just sent Casemiro into retirement with the greatest Marseille Turn since Zidane #RMAAJA

Whoever investigates war crimes should look into what Tadic did to Casemiro.
Somebody pls tag the International Criminal Court.

It was an excellent skill and he did not back off after this assist. During the third goal, van de Beek set up Dusan Tadic who shifted to the left leg and found the top corner to perfection to hand over a resounding 3-0 lead at Santiago Bernabeu in the second half.
However, the Los Blancos kept on tapping the door and finally broke the deadlock through Marco Asensio in the 70th minute. Two minutes later, Dusan Tadic won a free kick for the Dutch side which was spectacularly converted by Lasse Schone to erase the hopes of Real Madrid’s comeback into the game.
It was a much-deserved victory for Ajax who were the better team over the two legs by going toe-to-toe at Johan Cruyff Arena and humiliating Real Madrid at their own backyard by producing a magical performance.
When Santiago Solari was asked if they missed Sergio Ramos today, the Argentine replied “Of course. Without talking badly about any of our players, of course we missed our captain.”
This year has been really difficult for the Los Blancos who lost their prized assets after last season – Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“It has been a tough season, but that’s what we’re here for: to give it our all and show our character in the tough moments. The good times are easier for us to get through, but we need to get through the tough moments with courage and never give up. What we need to do is remain calm and approach it with the best possible character.
“The season goes on. There’s a big gap in LaLiga, but we have to remain professional. Real Madrid are bigger than all of this, we will come back bigger and better, we’ll be better than before”.
The Argentine International has asked the fans and club not to take any rash decisions because the club needs a total revamp.
“I didn’t come here in such troubling times just to give up. I am here to work and give my best. The players are here to give their best in order to be better tomorrow than they were yesterday”.
“We’ll be training tomorrow, we have our LaLiga commitments at the weekend. We all have an obligation, we have to be professional and show that we have this team in our hearts, we’ll come in to work tomorrow and give the best for the team”. he said.
Following three straight defeats, Real Madrid will take on Real Valladolid on Sunday as they look to put their disappointments away and finish as high as possible in the La Liga.
