Danilo equalised for Ajax after Getafe opened the scoring
Last season’s Champions League semi-finalists Ajax are out of the Europa League after being beaten 3-2 on aggregate by Getafe over two legs.
Ajax, who were 2-0 down from the first game, went behind early on as Jaime Mata opened the scoring for Getafe.
Danilo quickly levelled for Ajax, before Mathias Olivera scored an own goal for the Spanish side in the second half to put Ajax 2-1 up.
But Erik ten Hag’s men, top of the Dutch Eredivisie by three points, could not find a way past the resilient Getafe, despite enjoying 70% of possession.
The Spanish side more than held their own and were deserved winners of the tie, hitting the woodwork three times and registering nine attempts on goal in Amsterdam – the same amount as Ajax.
The draw for the last 16 takes place on Friday at 12:00 GMT.
