Real Madrid's tumultuous season just got a whole lot worse.

In an unforgettable night at the Santiago Bernabeu, Ajax overturned a 2-1 first-leg deficit with a swashbuckling attacking performance, finding the net four times en route to a 5-3 aggregate victory in their last-16 tie.

Without Cristiano Ronaldo leading the attack or Zinedine Zidane giving instructions from the touchline, the Spanish juggernaut's Champions League domination came to a screeching halt.

Here are some of the standout statistics in the wake of Madrid's shocking defeat Tuesday:

1: For the first time in club history, Real Madrid have been ousted from the Champions League after winning away from home in the first leg of the tie.

3: The three-goal loss signals the heaviest home defeat Madrid have ever suffered in a European knockout match.

4: Across all competitions, Ajax are the first visiting team to score at least four goals at the Santiago Bernabeu since Barcelona accomplished the feat in 2015.

9: This is the first time Real Madrid have failed to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League in nine seasons; they advanced to at least the semifinals in each of the past eight campaigns.

1,392: Ajax are the first team to eliminate Real Madrid in the Champions League since 2015 - 1,392 days ago, to be exact - when Juventus sent Los Blancos packing in the semifinals. It's been three years, nine months, and 20 days since the three-time defending champions have been kicked out of Europe's showpiece competition.
