No local supporters were as proud as the followers of Ajax Cape Town, looking up at their big brother's from Amsterdam knocking out Europe's most successful club.
There were many South Africans pointing out how Real were missing Cristiano Ronaldo. Bafana Bafana keeper Itumeleng Khune went as far as to criticise the Madrid club for not appreciating Ronaldo.
You can read all the reaction here, including that of former PSL players who support Real Madrid.
Morning @robertmarawa & Pa @TandoManana ,last night we witnessed a 19yr old lead Ajax to victory, i think We need to learn a thing or two for our @BafanaBafana and stop calling 24 year olds "youngsters".— The real _critic (@alieza30) March 6, 2019
Real Madrid didn't only lose Cristiano Ronaldo's 50 goals a season , they lost the mentality he brought in the team , and the fear factor , now it's different teams just go at them cause they are toothless . it's more just goals , he uplifted them a lot , with just his presence . pic.twitter.com/z7dFPoCSoI— K A Y.

@robertmarawa I think @AFCAjax_EN put a great shift but the #coach #Solari is a downfall of @realmadriden I couldn't believe he was offered 2 years contract. He excluded players such as a @MarceloM12 @marcoasensio10 & @isco_alarcon can't make it on 18 men squad #RMAAJX— Makahane Pelky (@pelkies) March 5, 2019
Two minutes for a decision. They have to go back to the drawing board on this. I don't know what's the rush in implementing VAR. Clearly the system still needs some upgrades— Msimelomnyama (@SukatiQ) March 5, 2019
