With their quarter-final tie in the balance at 1-1, Juventus and Ajax will play the second leg at Turin this midweek. Cristiano Ronaldo made six goals in six matches against Ajax, while David Neres brought the Amsterdam side back level. The hosts went down 2-1 at Spal in Serie A, but it was largely a second-string team. Juventus have won seven of their last ten competitive games (W7, D1, L2). This record gets even better at home, because the 'Old Lady' has lost just once again in all competitions playing at home (W18, D2, L1). That loss, interestingly, came in the Champions League, which saw just one win for Juventus in four fixtures (W1, D1, L2). The visitors warmed up for the contest with a 6-2 win in the Eredivisie and won in their last five (W4, D1).Playing away from home, Ajax have won their last two competitive games and have won in their last 14 fixtures in all competitions (W11, L3). The Dutch side remains in the competition, having started in the qualifiers. The 2-1 loss to Real Madrid remains their only loss in this year competition (W8, D6, L1). That includes a seven-match unbeaten run from home in the Champions League this season (W3, D4).
Both Ajax and Juventus have made remarkable comebacks in the previous round. Ajax are in their first quarterfinal since 2002/03 and have not made it to the last four since 1996/97. Juventus are looking to make it a third semi-final in five seasons and should be able to achieve that with ease.
