Spanish media call Ajax defeat Real Madrid’s ‘worst night on record’

• Madrid out of Champions League after 4-1 home loss to Ajax
• AS say ‘three months in the desert’ now await club

Real Madrid’s mourners filed out in silence while Ajax danced on their grave. As the north end of the Santiago Bernabéu roared to the sound of thousands of Dutch fans celebrating, the south stood abandoned and sad. Marca published an image of the north end as the final minutes ticked by, the Ajax section full, Madrid’s emptying, scoreboard quantifying their pain like some gigantic tombstone, on a front cover that was sparse and sombre. “Here lies the team that made history,” it said, adding: “A humiliating end to an unrepeatable era.”
