Ajax takes on Juventus in the Champions League quarterfinal on Wednesday night. Let’s take a look at the head-t0-head record between the two sides.
The Dutch side is set to take on Juventus in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal at the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday night. The first leg between these two sides ended in a 1-1 draw, thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and David Neres to set up a pulsating game in Turin.
Both the sides qualified to this round with emphatic comeback victories. Ajax pulled up a stunning turnaround to defeat defending champions Real Madrid 4-1 in the second leg (winning 5-3 on aggregate).
Juventus, meanwhile, won with a Cristiano Ronaldo hattrick in Turin after being down 2-0 in the first leg against Atletico Madrid.
As both the sides meet in the quarterfinal stage of the competition, let’s take a look at their head-to-head statistics.
Ajax vs Juventus head-t0-head record:
The sides last clashed in a competitive environment nine years ago until they met in the first leg a week ago.
When the sides met in 2010, Luis Suarez was still playing for Ajax, as were Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen. However, Ajax failed to overcome the Juventus side in the round-of-32 of the competition. Interestingly, Juventus were defeated by Fulham in the next round, who went on to reach the final.
The Italian side is fairly ahead in their h2h record against Ajax. However, Erik ten Hag’s side would aim to change the statistics in their favour as they aim to derail Juventus’ Champions League campaign this season.
