Can Ajax do the improbable? One has to wait till tonight to know the answer when Juventus welcome the Dutch giants in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash in Turin.

Ajax managed to finish the first leg with a decent 1-1 scoreline, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring for the Italian champions and David Neres equalising for the hosts.

Juventus will head into the match on the back of a shock 2-1 loss against SPAL in the Serie A on Saturday, whereas Ajax totally outclassed Excelsior with a destructive 6-2 scoreline. Although Juventus lost their weekend's match, they will start against Ajax as favourites as they have an away-goal advantage.

Both teams have plenty of exciting players in their ranks. While Ajax have the likes of Matthijs De Ligt, Frenkie de Jong and Dusan Tadic, Juventus have seasoned campaigners such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Miralem Pjanic and Alex Sandro. Ajax could stun the Bianconeri as they did the defending champions Real Madrid in the Round of 16.
