Where to watch Juventus vs Ajax in the UCL quarter-finals on April 16

April 15, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
Juventus will lock horns with Ajax as the Bianconeri battle to secure a spot in the semi-finals on Tuesday, April 16th. Live Soccer TV's match preview provides match facts, team news, and global broadcast listings for Juventus vs Ajax.

Current form: Juventus vs Ajax

Juventus come into this game having lost 2-1 to SPAL, and with Napoli winning 3-1 against Chievo, that has put their Scudetto celebrations on hold for yet another weekend. With that defeat, Juventus have lost two of their last three away Serie A fixtures. Prior to that, they had not lost any of their last 26 on the road in the league. Nonetheless, they are firmly in control of the title race, and thus, it's not a matter of if they will win the Scudetto, but when.

Still it's not the way Massimiliano Allegri wanted his side to come into their upcoming clash against an Ajax side who cruised to a 6-2 win over Excelsior last weekend. That being said, Allegri did heavily rotate his squad for the trip to SPAL's home ground and fielded many Primavera players for that game, so SPAL were not facing a full-strength Bianconeri team. With Juventus surprisingly knocked out of the Coppa Italia, the Treble no longer is an option for the Turin giants, so right now their focus absolutely is to win the Champions League at all costs.

Standing in their way right now, though, is Ajax. Having stumbled at the weekend against SPAL, will they get back to winning ways as they host the tricky Dutch side at home? So far, Juve have been largely unstoppable on home turf - although they did lose at the Allianz Stadium earlier this season to Manchester United. The hosts will be again relying on Cristiano Ronaldo's excellent form in the knockout rounds to help see thme through - the 34-year-old has netted an impressive 24 goals so far in just 21 quarter-final outings, including the deciding goal against Ajax last week, and has 125 Champions League goals so far to his name.

How they got here: Juventus vs Ajax

Juventus drew 1-1 with Ajax in the first leg thanks to an away goal scored by Cristiano Ronaldo, so do have a slight advantage ahead of the return leg. That being said, Ajax are a tricky side, to say the least. They notably overturned a 2-1 first leg loss in the round of 16 to thrash Real Madrid 4-1 in front of the Madrid giants' home fans earlier this season, so Juventus will naturally not make that same mistake and think they have this game already in the bag.

Ajax finished second in their quartet, behind Bayern Munich, and drew the German side both home and away - so they are clearly shaping up to be this season's surprise package in this competition. Impressively, they are the only side still involved who came up through the qualifying rounds. No other team who had to battle through any play-offs are still competing at this juncture. Meanwhile, Juventus topped their quartet, but did suffer some wobbles as they surprisingly lost to Swiss minnows Young Boys.
