Real Madrid got off to a horror start in their Champions League second leg clash with Ajax after two early goals at the Bernabéu.
The La Liga side took a 2-1 lead into the tie but were hit by two early sucker punches by a simply superb Dutch side. Demonstrating all the technical prowess of old, Ajax looked utterly dominant in the opening 20 minutes, taking the lead thanks to a Hakim Ziyech strike.

David Neres doubled their tally shortly afterwards, after some excellent build-up play.
Neres, in particular, stood out in the early exchanges, with several striking skilful efforts.
