Tip Juventus - Ajax
Cristiano Ronaldo was among the top stars not involved in the SPAL game as he continues with recovery. He came back after injury and scored the only goal for Juventus in the 1 – 1 draw in the first leg. He will definitely be involved here, and after going two matches without a win, Juve will be hoping this match marks a return to winning ways. On their part, Ajax warmed up for this game with a 6 – 2 win over Excelsior. The win made it five unbeaten outings for Ajax and they have lost just once in their last 12 matches. They have no clean sheet in the last seven matches and in eight of the last 10 but they are prolific scorers; in the last 15 they have failed to score in just two. Ajax have four wins in the last 10 Champions League matches and they have lost just once in 17 Champions League games; of the 17, eight are draws. They beat Real Madrid away in the last round, making it two straight away wins in the Champions League, and eight unbeaten. However, in the unbeaten run, there are only three wins. Juventus have lost three of their last six Champions League matches and have failed to win in four of their last seven at home. They however have clean sheets in three of the last four home matches in the competition – all they need to secure their place in the semis. The two sides have met five times; Ajax have never won, and Juventus have picked three wins.
Key points Juventus - Ajax
Ajax are unbeaten in eight away matches in the Champions League.

Conclusion Juventus - Ajax
Ajax are unbeaten in eight away Champions League matches but five of them have ended in draws. They have been one of the most attractive sides to follow in this season’s competition but going by Juventus’ record, we don’t see the Dutch side going past this stage. Neither do we expect that they will lose this game. A barren draw seems the most likely result here.
