It was harder in Madrid, says De Jong

Ajax will play the victor of the all-Premier League tie between Manchester City and Tottenham for a place in the final at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.

Good evening! Welcome to the Live Updates of Juventus Vs Ajax.

"I already talked with the president, I will remain at Juve next season and we are already planning the next campaign". Sadly for Ajax supporters, it won't be with them in the future, but on this evidence they could yet stun the football world and go all the way together before this team is inevitably split up.

"In the last month we have been struggling with several injuries".

Noussair Mazraoui - N/A - An unfortunate end to the young Morocco international's night as he limped off injured in the 11th minute.

Ajax failed to make the Top 20 of the Deloitte chart.

He's taken charge of 6 UCL match this season and dished out 27 yellow cards and three reds, averaging well over 5 cards a game and this game should get tasty late on, especially if Ajax can grab a goal.

Juventus substitute Moise Kean fired wide after being slipped through by Ronaldo, but Ajax continued to call the tune and Pjanic stuck out a foot to deny Ziyech the simplest of tap-ins.

Ajax: Onana 6, Veltman 8, De Ligt 8, Mazraoui 5, Blind 7, van de Beek 8, Schone 7, De Jong 7, Ziyech 8, Tadic 8, Neres 7.

Juve host the Eredivisie giants at the Allianz Stadium tonight for the second-leg with the quarter-final tie evenly poised at 1-1.

Ziyech looked as if he had fired a third past Szczesny, but his goal was ruled offside after a VAR check. Many will consider them underdogs again, but shareholders in the Dutch side, a historic juggernaut of European football, will hope they can return to winning ways having gone without the premier continental trophy since 1995.

The Dutch side, who beat Real Madrid in the last 16, claimed another major scalp in the quarter finals as they won 2-1 away to Juventus, progressing 3-2 on aggregate. Whipped in a scintillating cross to set-up Ronaldo for the opening goal, and made a goal saving clearance in the second half to deny a certain Ajax goal.

Allegri added: "In Amsterdam we could have, and should have done better".

United had arrived at Camp Nou hoping to take inspiration from its Champions League final victory 20 years ago, when current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer capped a comeback against Bayern Munich by scoring the victor in injury time. "Saturday we have to close out the Scudetto".
