The Moment Cristiano Ronaldo Was Frustrated By Frenkie De Jong Last Night

Juventus completed a drastic comeback in their previous Champions League match as they eliminated Atletico Madrid and that win will ensure that the team enters this match filled with confidence.

"I think we've done pretty well".

Ajax and Juventus will be facing each other for the ninth time in the European Cup/Champions League and for the first time since November 2004.

Douglas Costa nearly gave the visitors what, in truth, would have been an undeserved victor, but his solo effort struck Onana's left-hand post, leaving both sides to settle for a share of the spoils ahead of the return leg in Turin.

The result leaves the Serie A side in a strong position to advance to the semi-finals in next week's return leg in Turin.

However, David Neres curled home for the hosts at the beginning of the second period to leave the quarterfinal tie delicately poised at 1-1.

PSG must wait for title after mother of all misses
PSG now have the chance to seal the Ligue 1 title away at rivals Lille next weekend where they will clinch by avoiding defeat. At the time he was being widely mocked on Twitter, Choupo did at least attempt to explain what exactly he was trying to do.

But neither side could grab a victor and they meet in the second leg in Turin on Tuesday, 16 April.

Ronaldo, who was making his return for Juve after missing the last four games, came back with a bang as he opened the scoring in the 45th minute. This clearly shows they also have a fighting spirit inside them.

Earlier, police in the Dutch capital said they had detained dozens of Italians suspected of possessing flares, a knife, pepper spray and fireworks.

While Juventus are loaded with experienced players, one of their youngest players led the squad during Ronaldo's absence. Moving the ball back to Onana, then through the defence, then up the left flank towards Neres via a clipped ball from left-back Nicolas Tagliafico, Ajax executed the ultimate team move and concluded it with some individual artistry. Only Lionel Messi is within 50 goals of the Portugal captain; the Argentine is on 108, while Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez is in third place on 71 in Europe's premier club competition.

"The police carried out many arrests on Wednesday April 10 prior to the Ajax-Juventus match", a statement read.

Szczesny swatted away a blast from Jurgen Ekkelenkamp before Costa hit the woodwork at the other end with a long, angled shot and Onana palmed away another risky effort from Cancelo.
