Johan Cruyff Ajax Ajax vs. Juventus - 4/10/19 UEFA Champions League - Quarter Finals Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Two of European football's classic teams - Holland's Ajax and Italy's Juventus go head to head this evening in Amsterdam with both hoping to clinch an advantage in the first leg of this Champions League quarter final tie.

Juve will take an away goal back to Turin and will be confident that their unsentimental approach will allow them to see things out on home turf.

Ronaldo's sensational strike on the cusp of halftime - his 23rd Champions League headed goal and the 97th of his career - gave Juventus an unlikely lead after a youthful Ajax side had bossed the majority of the game's opening stanza.

Meanwhile, the encounter between Ajax and Juventus will start 8pm tonight.

More than 130 arrests were made outside Ajax's Champions League draw against Juventus after violent clashes broke out between supporters and Amsterdam Police.

The vast majority of the pressure was coming from Ajax, though, as they continued to demonstrate that their upset of Real was just as much about their excellence as the difficulties of their opponents.

"Ajax have great quality".

The Champions League match between Ajax and Juventus will be broadcast live on Bleacher Report. "His timing and movement are different to everyone else´s, there´s nothing you can do about it", said Allegri.

Ronaldo hadn't played since injuring his right thigh while on worldwide duty with Portugal last month but he showed no signs of a problem. "I think we defended well even if we had to be better when we won the ball in midfield".

However, they will be mindful of Ajax's 4-1 away win over Real Madrid in the last round that eliminated the holders 5-3 on aggregate.

Ajax had 61 percent possession against a team that loves to have the ball, and they had 19 shots to Juve's seven.

Juventus appeared to of read the blueprint of a flawless Champions League away performance prior to kick-off, as despite being second best for large spells in the first-half, they converted their big chance when it fell to them.

Szczesny swatted away a blast from Jurgen Ekkelenkamp before Costa hit the woodwork at the other end with a long, angled shot and Onana palmed away another unsafe effort from Cancelo.
