Ajax vs Juventus (By: MDG)
Key defensive player of Juventus G. Chiellini is out for tonight and Ajax hosting Juve with all of their young talent and offensive stars can be a danger for the Italian side in Amsterdam. Ajax will only miss Mazraoui and Eiting, Mazraou is suspended on a yellow card rule.
For the past few weeks Cristiano Ronaldo was recovering from his injury that he sustained during international week playing for Portugal against Serbia, he left the pitch in 29th minute. He missed last 4 games of Juventus and considering that his injury happened on 25th of the previous month he should be more careful playing in Netherlands, if he re-injures himself then the rest of the sesason can be in danger, so I'm expecting Ronaldo to be on 70 % of his usual workrate.
Serie A is overrated as a whole, a league where Juventus is beating most of the teams even when they don't need to win games anymore with championship title in their hands for a while now, is not a league filled with great teams. It doesn't help that most of so called top teams struggled this year like Inter, Lazio, Roma, Milan and Napoli and nobody gave Juventus a real challenge for the top.
Ajax cannot lose the first leg and they really shouldn't. When they played Real Madrid here they lost 1:2 but they were clearly the better team and Madrid's luck and referee saved them that night, it did not help them much as Ajax crushed them with 1:4 in the return leg. Juventus failed to score in Spain against Atletico Madrid and recently also failed to score against Genoa away.
