Fearless Ajax keep magical run alive by knocking out Juventus

Kanu: Ajax can beat Juventus at...

Cristiano Ronaldo will return to the Juventus starting line-up to face Ajax in the Champions League quarter-final second leg tie on Tuesday.

Juventus shares were down 17.7 percent at 1.39 euros at 0730 GMT after plunging almost 21 percent when trading in Milan began.

Add up the sum total of the transfer fees paid by Ajax last summer and it comes to just under half the €112 million which Juve paid to secure Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

De Ligt scored Ajax's second goal as they won 2-1 in Turin to go through 3-2 on aggregate.

Juventus signed Ronaldo in pre-season in the hope of ending a 23-year wait for the Champions League.

Ronaldo headed Juventus ahead in the 28th minute.

Remarkably, Ajax are the first team from outside England, Germany, Spain, Italy and France to reach the last four since their compatriots PSV Eindhoven 14 years ago.

Ajax took complete control in the second half and their geometric passing repeatedly opened up the Juventus defence, which sorely missed injured veteran Giorgio Chiellini.

Ajax produced a stunning turnaround to reach their first UEFA Champions League semi-final since 1996/97. "For sure we won't play for 0-0".

Twenty years ago at Barcelona's stadium, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer completed one of the most memorable comebacks in football history when he scored the English team's second injury-time goal to stun Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final. Juventus have always the same objective: Winning everything. And with Tottenham or Manchester City there will be another challenge.

So even if this season ends up being a fleeting brush with the summit of European football before Ajax disappear from the latter stages of the Champions League, forced into rebuilding yet again, it makes it all the more reason for us to revel in it while we can. "I've never seen a bag of money score a goal".

"From a physical point of view he's better, he's got great skill and quality and during a match becomes a different player".

The Argentine then pounced on another lapse from United's defence four minutes later to win back possession high up the pitch and fire a shot from outside the box, which squirmed under visiting keeper David de Gea.
