Juventus vs Ajax Match Preview
Ajax continue to be the surprise package of this season’s Champions League, but we expect their fantastic run to finally end in Turin.
The Dutch club look to have their best team for over 20 years, certainly in terms of their European performances, for they knocked out holders Real Madrid in the first knockout round of this competition and then held Juventus to a 1-1 draw at home last week.
Not only will Ajax head to Italy level in the tie, they produced another excellent attacking display in Amsterdam where Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny had to be in good form to ensure he conceded only David Neres’ equaliser to Cristiano Ronaldo’s opening goal.
Erik ten Hag’s side will not be daunted about going to the Allianz Stadium because they turned around a 2-1 deficit in Madrid by finding the net four times in the pick of the exhilarating Champions League shows that have developed their burgeoning reputation.
But Real Madrid were in a bad moment then, struggling before Zinedine Zidane’s return as manager, and Juventus are highly unlikely to crumble having looked potential winners of this competition throughout the campaign.
Having rested their star players at the weekend when they missed an opportunity to wrap up an eighth straight Serie A title, Juventus are clearly leaving nothing to chance here and they are expected to advance to the semi-finals.
