A young outsider against experienced favourites. Ajax or Juventus? Who is more worthy of reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League? Largest bookmakers are sure that next will be the Italian club. But whether to trust their quotes?
Now it is safe to say that Erik ten Haag led his team to a new level. Experienced Dutch specialist in a relatively short period managed to put together a great team. Yes, Ajax in its current form is extremely young and inexperienced. Yeah, soon his stars could be in the top clubs and everyone will have to start over. But the current Vice-champion of the country still have time to achieve maximum results in Europe.
In the one-eighth Champions League Ajax managed to kill the current holder of the "eared" Cup – real Madrid. And now the Dutch team again meets with the favourite.
"Zebra" I do not know equal in the Serie A for several seasons in a row. But the Team Massimiliano Allegri still continues to grow. Last summer, the leadership of the "Old lady" was one of the best players in the world – Cristiano Ronaldo. It is clear that this is done not to fight in the domestic League and winning titles in Europe.
Juventus is not in vain called one of the main contenders taking on the Champions League this season. At the last stage in the heroic return match Italians knocked out of the tournament Atletico Madrid. And now they all got a much more modest rival. Juve have one foot in the semi-finals?
The clubs do not interfere with each other for nine years. And then, in the 1/16 of the Europa League, the Italians were more fortunate. In General, in its history, only twice Ajax beat Juventus. And not the fact that he will be able to do it in AprilLe 2019. Our forecast – a victory of the Juventus. But the Dutch are simply obliged to give battle to his opponent.
