Juventus host Ajax in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday, with the two sides level at 1-1 after the first leg in Amsterdam.
The result means the tie is finely balanced, but the Italian champions look to have the edge courtesy of their away goal and the fact they have home advantage in the return leg.
However, Ajax will not lack for confidence in Turin. Erik ten Hag’s talented young team beat holders Real Madrid 4-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in the last round on their way to a 5-3 aggregate victory.
Juventus go into the game after missing the chance to clinch an eighth successive Serie A title on Saturday.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men were beaten 2-1 by SPAL, although the Juve boss did rest several key players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, for the match.
Ajax will therefore face a fresh Ronaldo, and Allegri has also hinted that Moise Keane and Paulo Dybala could feature on Tuesday
Ajax and Juventus finished all square after the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal played in Holland with a score of 1-1, and Juve will be content with that away goal as they head back to Italy for the second leg.
Both goals came on either side of the halftime whistle, with Cristiano Ronaldo nodding home a header just before the halftime whistle and then David Neres scoring a beautiful goal right at the beginning of the second half.
The Serie A side have also had some good news on the injury front ahead of the match.
Emre Can, Rodrigo Bentancur, Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi have all recovered from injury, while the club’s medical staff are “optimistic” Giorgio Chiellini and Douglas Costa will be fit, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
Allegri has warned his team not to drop their guard against the Dutch side, per JTV (h/t Football Italia):
“Ajax always play the same way, it doesn’t matter if they are at home or on their travels,” he said. “That means we must play well and have great respect for them. It’s a difficult match against a very impressive team.”
Ajax warmed up for Tuesday’s clash with a 6-2 Eredivisie thrashing of Excelsior. However, the win came at a cost after key midfielder Frenkie de Jong limped off with a hamstring injury.
