Hopeless Ajax through to Europa League

For the third year in a row, the Champions League took Ajax to Estadio Santiago Bernabéu. And for the third time in a row, the game ended in defeat for Ajax. Still, there was something bittersweet about the 4-1 loss, since Ajax managed to cling to third place. Ajax therefore will continue in the Europa League after the winter break, and they will be the only Dutch club to do so.
