Juventus vs Ajax
Juventus is welcoming Ajax after drawing 1-1 in the first leg. The hosts have only lost one home game in all competitions this season and that was back in November. However, Juventus have no room for complacency hosting an Ajax side that impressed against Bayern in the group stages and stunned holders Real Madrid in the previous round. Although Ajax may rue missed chances from the first leg they still have good chances to progress.
- Ajax are undefeated in 16 of their last 17 matches (UEFA Champions League)
- Juventus are undefeated in their last 5 matches against Ajax in all competitions
Juventus vs Ajax Prediction
Dutch side is clearly a cut above anything the Eredivisie has produced in recent years, but fearless and youthful though they may be, a lack of experience may cost them here. To sum up, Juventus is not at their best at the moment but it is hard to see past Cristiano Ronaldo inspiring Ajax through to the semi finals.
