Juventus vs Ajax: Preview, head-to-head, possible line ups, date, time, venue

- Juventus vs Ajax Champions League quarterfinal second leg will be played in Turin on Tuesday night, April 16

- The Italian club forced Ajax to 1-1 draw in the first leg in which Cristiano Ronaldo scored for the Old Lady

- Ronaldo has scored in his last five Champions League games against Ajax netting eight goals in total

Reigning Italian champions Juventus will on Tuesday night, April 16, face Dutch side Ajax in the second leg of their 2018/19 Champions League quarterfinal clash.

Juventus are already one leg in the semifinal after forcing Ajax to a 1-1 draw in the first leg in which Ronaldo scored for the Old Lady, and the only thing they need is to stop Ajax from scoring.

The Old Lady are looking to reach the Champions League semi-finals for the third time in the last five seasons also making the last four in 2014-15 and 2016-17.

Ajax are looking to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 1996-97, while they could become the first Dutch side to do so since PSV in 2004-05.

But Ajax must have it at the back of their minds that Juventus are unbeaten in their last 10 meetings with them in all competitions.
