Juventus take on the visitors Ajax Amsterdam in the second leg of Champions League quarterfinals. The match will be played on Tuesday, April 16th at Allianz Staduim.
The successes of the Turin club in recent years are associated with names of Marotta and Parachiti. Not many fans know the names of the two directors of Juventus, but it was with their arrival to the club that changed things for the club and lead to 7 Scudetto titles in a row. This season the "Old Signora" will win Serie A again. This became clear even after the first half of the championship, when Juventus got a solid lead over their pursuers. However, the fact that the Turinians will become the best Italian team this time also became clear in the summer, when the club signed Cristiano Ronaldo. When Juventus played under Conte, the team began to play as competently as possible. The second secret of success is the profitable sale of players to other top clubs. To some extent, the current head coach Allegri is ideal for this particular team. The specialist shows flexibility, and whoever Juventus would sell, the coach always found options to rebuild the game. To balance the team with the arrival of Ronaldo, it took a couple of months. At the same time, despite the appearance of one of the best players in the world, the game “Juventus” did not become more spectacular, but the efficiency, of course, became better. Dybala, Bernardeschi and Mandzhukich look great in combination with Ronaldo. Juventus was on the verge of relegation from the 1/8 finals, after Allegri's wards lost to Atletico in Madrid in the first leg with a score of 0: 2. It would seem that Simeone organizes such a “bus” in the return game in Italy that no one can get past him unnoticed. But the Atletico failed the return game - they didn’t create anything in the attack, and didn’t look safe in defense, so they naturally lost 0: 3, allowing Juventus to continue to fight for the trophy.

The Amsterdam team has already created a sensation this season. This happened in the previous round against Real Madrid. You can say anything about Real this season, because the wards of Santiago Solari twice managed to lose Moscow side “CSKA”. At the same time, Real Madrid managed to win the first match in Amsterdam (2: 1), so before the return game the Dutch team was given a little chance for a comeback. “Real” before the native fans completely failed - he lost with the score 1: 4. As it turned out, the transfer of the Amsterdam club leader Frankie de Jong to Barcelona did not weaken Ajax much. Apparently, according to the results of this season, more Ajax players will go to the top clubs in Europe. Talyafiko is the main contender for leaving the club. Among the contenders for the Argentine are “Bayern”, “Tottenham” and “Real”. The team from Amsterdam continues the pursuit of "PSV" in the championship of the Netherlands. At the same time, Ajax plays much more efficiently, scoring more than 3 goals on average per game.
The last time Ajax and Juventus faced in 2010. It was the stage of the 1/16 finals of the Europa League. In that battle, Juventus won the match in Amsterdam (2: 1), and played a draw (0: 0) at home. The history of the teams' head-to-heads includes 12 meetings: Juventus won 6 times, Ajax - 2, and in 4 matches there was a peaceful outcome. Ajax has managed to make a splash this season already. Apparently, now Allegri wards will be much more motivated to play against the Dutch, who are not as simple as they seem at first glance. In this confrontation, experience will become the main reason for determining the winner of a pair. In Turin, the "old signora" is very dangerous, so the hosts are the favorites of this meeting. “Ajax” will be difficult in the attack, and for sure he will not score goals.
Prediction for the match: Juventus to win.
