Juventus shares plunge on Champions League knockout

Jose Mourinho

"We play our football, it doesn't matter who is our opponent", Tadic said. Fearless, inventive and gorgeous.

The expansion of the competition in 1997/98, making it accessible to more than one club from a single nation, has only exacerbated the situation.

Ronaldo headed Juventus ahead in the 28th minute. Teams routinely cow in the face of the Portuguese's big game temperament.

Turin was their fifth destination in the Champions League proper - they've yet to lose away from home. Such has been the one-sided nature of European football that we accept someone else's fantasies as our destiny.

Ajax's strike-force of 22-year-old Neres, Dusan Tadic and Hakim Ziyech have proven effective this season.

The Old Lady of Italian football crashed out 3-2 on aggregate in the quarter finals to a resurgent Ajax team, who have now beaten both Juve and Real Madrid on their way to a semi final tie next month.

Anytime Van de Beek pounced on a turnover he drove at the defence - creating space for that trident to pierce again.

Ajax's Matthijs De Ligt shot on to the scene in 2018, becoming captain of his club and winning the Golden Boy award.

Ajax took the game to Juventus in a way that none of their domestic rivals would have dared, and Allegri's team were incapable of dealing with it.

We are proud of this shirt and we love it". "We make the changes to win the game, and we did not do that today". Even if this might have been a bad season, we must all give a bit more".

"They had a bit of luck with their quick equaliser but they played very well after the break".

But midfielder Frenkie de Jong, 21, is uncertain to start after going off clutching his hamstring. "You could see Juventus were a little bit scared of us and so were Real Madrid", said Erik ten Hag, the Ajax manager.

With two massive scalps hanging from their belt, you couldn't argue Ajax aren't full worth for their semifinal spot.

The club are expecting to pay somewhere close to €80m to get the deal over the line, which sources have said is possible even though they have to be careful with how they manage their finances this summer.

"I was going a bit insane because we couldn't convert any of the chances".

"We will see who is coming to the semi-final and then we have to show the same". "This proves that, in the long run, sticking to one's philosophy, even in hard times, pays off".

If Ajax do bow out - and it would take a fearless person to bet against them, given what they have done thus far - they will do so having produced one of the Champions League's best underdog stories in many a year, and sadly one that could become fewer and farther between if wealth imbalances in the game continue to grow.

For the neutral, this team has already achieved plenty.
