Ajax News and Form

Ajax had a tremendous comeback in the last round. They had lost 2-1 at home against Real Madrid in the first leg of their round of sixteen tie. Then the Dutch side produced a stunning 4-1 win at the Bernabeu to get to their first quarter-final since 2002/03. These two illustrious names of European football have met before. Ajax have only taken the two wins in their last 12 European games against Juve, going winless in their last nine against them. Ajax have lost five of their last six against the Old Lady. Their record in the quarterfinals of the European Cup is W8 L4. Ajax have only ever lost one home game in European quarter-finals, going W6 D5 in their other such matches.

Remarkably Ajax were winless in seven UEFA Champions League knockout stage games (D2 L5) before they landed that win at Real Madrid in the round of sixteen. They are without a win in any of their last six home games in the knockout phase (D3 L3). Ajax have had a great season in Europe holding a W8 D5 L1 record from fourteen played this season. At home they are W5 D1 L1 this season in Europe, being the only side left who came through the qualifiers. Ajax are winless in their last nine games against Italian opposition at home but are unbeaten (W1 D4) in their last five home and away against Italian teams. Ajax’s record in two-legged ties against Italian clubs is W5 L7; they have lost three of the last four.

Juventus News and Form

Juve had to mount a big fight back in the last round. They were beaten 2-0 away at Atletico Madrid, but they managed to turn it around with a 3-0 home win in the second leg. Cristiano Ronaldo got a hattrick. In last season’s quarterfinals, Juve had that epic tussle with Real Madrid, which was level at 3-3 before Ronaldo converted a stoppage-time penalty kick to give Madrid the win. Their overall record in two-legged ties against Dutch sides is W4 L1. Out on the road this season they went W2 L1 in the group stage, before that defeat at Atletico in the round of sixteen.

The loss in the group stage was at Young Boys, snapping a five-match away winning streak that they were on in the competition. Juventus are undefeated in their last six games against Dutch sides with a W4 D2 record from that sequence. Three of the five defeats which they have suffered against Dutch sides in their history have happened in away games. Juventus are W12 L6 in their 18 previous quarter-final ties in the European Cup, but they have won just two of their last six. Moise Kean has scored seven goals in his last eight games for his club and country. Cristiano Ronaldo has not played since going off injured on international duty on March 25th.

Ajax v Juventus Predictions

Juventus to win: Ajax did a tremendous job in knocking out Real Madrid in the last round. But even with that, they lost at home. Juve may not find the going as tough away from home as it was against Atletico. Away win in a low-scoring game looks a good fit.
