Ajax And Juventus Play To First Leg Draw

Ronaldo

The Cinderella story of this season's competition, Ajax produced another impressive performance in Wednesday's first-leg quarter-final clash in Amsterdam, where David Neres cancelled out Cristiano Ronaldo's opener.

Brazil worldwide David Neres scored on the other side of the break with a superb curling effort.

Massimiliano Allegri dropped a strong hint he could leave Juventus when asked about his future after their draw with Ajax.

"Ronaldo showed that he is on a different level".

"Ajax have great quality".

Portugal star Ronaldo had returned to action following three weeks out after picking up an injury during the global break. The 21-year-old will have breathed a huge sigh of relief when Neres found the back of the net, though, ensuring it is a little less costly than it could have been.

Ajax had set up this tie by ending Real Madrid's European hegemony in the previous round after a thrilling 4-1 victory in Spain, and maintain hope going into the return.

Another added: "Man U have lost four out of their last five games and were lucky to beat Watford at home in that run". He still makes his goals, but it will be hard for Juventus to get into the last four, although they are always tactically excellently set up.

Juventus have a 20-point advantage on second-placed Napoli and a draw would seal their 35th "Scudetto" with six games to spare - the earliest any team has ever sealed Serie A - thanks to their superior head-to-head record over Carlo Ancelotti's side.

Juventus only displayed their attacking threat in patches, with Federico Bernardeschi lively and Ronaldo hooking one chance wide. And, maybe, because Messi is not as outstanding as in his best times, also Cristiano Ronaldo.

Bernardeschi again came close nine minutes before the interval, swivelling and firing wide from Ronaldo's knock down, before the Champions League's all-time top goalscorer plundered his 125th in the competition, converting Joao Cancelo's lofted ball into the area with a thumping finish. Just as quickly as the second half can get started, Ajax goes and gets their equalizer.
