Fearless Ajax keep magical run alive by knocking out Juventus

Kanu: Ajax can beat Juventus at... Juventus vs Ajax - Preview, Live Match | 16 Apr 2019

Juventus' loss to Ajax came as a surprise to many but none more so than Cristiano Ronaldo who will be surprised to find the Champions League finishes before the semi-final, having not done that since 2010. They won 4-1 at Real Madrid in the round of 16 having lost the home leg 2-1.

Van de Beek cushioned Hakim Ziyech's shot and, kept onside by Mattia De Sciglio, tucked away the one-on-one opportunity.

The forward had just won his third Champions League in a row, and fourth in five years, with Real Madrid and they wanted him to continue his run in Turin.

Better still, the boss has his treasure chest of happy memories to open from his part in the Red Devils' 1999 Champions League final win in the Camp Nou against Bayern Munich. 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.

There was joy for Lionel Messi and anguish for Cristiano Ronaldo as Barcelona progressed to the semi-finals of the Champions League at the expense of Manchester United while Juventus were knocked out by Ajax.

Matthijs de Ligt grabbed the victor as Ajax stunned Juventus to triumph 2-1 in the Allianz Stadium and book a place in the Champions League semi finals for the first time since 1997.

"It's unbelievable. We are so happy that we did it today and so proud of the team", De Ligt told ViaSportFotball. Last week, we controlled the game, but were unable to score more than one goal.

Even going behind to a goal from Ronaldo in the first half didn't faze Ajax's young players as Donny van de Beek leveled shortly after and 19-year-old captain Matthijs de Ligt scored the victor in the second half.

De Ligt's agent Mino Raiola is in regular contact with Barca, who value the signing of De Ligt on the same level as the arrival of his Ajax teammate De Jong, who will join the Catalans for €75 million in June.

"Once again we eliminated the favourites".

"Ronaldo gave us a lot during the season and especially in the Champions League", he said.

"Can we can go on to win the competition?"

"In the last month we have been struggling with several injuries - even tonight we were missing important players - so it was not easy to reach top form".

And, after drawing Juventus, many expected them to bow out in the quarter-finals.
