AMSTERDAM, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid booked an impressive 4-0 win at Ajax on Tuesday evening and qualified as Group G winners for the last 16 of the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho's side was already qualified, but needed a point to secure the first place.

In the last minutes of the match, Real could even afford to finish the match with nine men because Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos deliberately caught their second yellow cards to avoid taking a yellow card into the next round.

In the other match of the group, AC Milan beat AJ Auxerre 2-0 in France. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ronaldinho scored for the Italian powerhouse in the second half.

Due to this result Milan also qualified for the next round and Ajax and Auxerre were eliminated.

Both Ajax and Real have an impressive past in European football, but at present the Spanish giants are far ahead of their Amsterdam opponents. They proved that once again on Tuesday. With injured Sami Khedira, Ricardo Carvalho and Gonzalo Higuain missing Real was still able to field a decent team with Cristiano Ronaldo en Karim Benzema in front, causing the defense of Ajax a lot of trouble.
