Juventus vs Ajax : LIVE: Stream, score, goals, Cristiano Ronaldo team news, Champions League latest updates, Follow LIVE coverage as Ajax attempt to upset the odds against Juventus
All is left to play for as the Champions League quarterfinal second legs begin. Both Ajax and Juventus will be feeling pretty good about their chances of making the last four after the first leg. The Dutch side controlled the majority of the opening 90 minutes at home but only managed a 1-1 draw.
Cristiano Ronaldo gave Juve the lead just before halftime, while David Neres notched Ajax’s goal on the other side of the break. The home side probably deserved a better fate as they created several dangerous chances but were unable to get the winner.
Juve are in very good shape heading home with an away goal and level on aggregate. Despite being able to see out the second leg without needing to score to advance, the Italian giants have vowed not to sit back and play for the scoreless result. They rested most of their regulars at the weekend against SPAL and it cost them as they fell, 2-1, for just their second league loss of the season. Meanwhile, Ajax played most of their best players at home against Excelsior and crushed them, 6-2.
The young Ajax side are clearly the underdogs heading into Turin needing at least one goal. However, they proved they’re capable of creating chances against this caliber of competition in the first leg. It’s just a matter of converting those opportunities. It won’t be an easy task for them to pull off the upset, but it certainly isn’t impossible. It should be another classic European night in Italy.
