All the feats from Ajax's win over Juve

All the impressive feats from Juventus 1-2 Ajax as Dutch side makes history

April 17, 2019 By Ali M.
The Eredevisie giant put in an amazing performance in Turin to eliminate Cristiano and Co, registering quite a few records along the way.

Tuesday night will forever remain in the memory of Ajax fans. After coming back from a 2-1 home defeat to win at Santiago Bernabeu and eliminate Real Madrid, the Dutch side dumped another European giant out of the competition while on the road.

This time, Juventus fell victim to the promising Eredivisie outfit. A first-half header from Cristiano Ronaldo gave the home side an early lead but the visitor put in another gallant performance to win 2-1 in Turin and progress via a 3-2 aggregate scoreline. 

Not only did a team with an average age of 24 eliminate one of the favorites, led by none other than Mr. Champions League himself, but Erik ten Hag's side did it with style. They also set a few records along the way.

Their first feat had everything to do with the wins at the Bernabeu and the Allianz Stadium this term. No team has ever won at both Real Madrid and Juventus in a single Champions League season, that is until Ajax on Tuesday.

The second record is becoming the first team to go through three qualifying rounds to make the semi-finals of this coveted European tournament. Due to de Godenzonen's second-placed finish in the Dutch top-flight last season, they began their Champions League campaign in late July and have now progressed all the way to the final four.

Additionally, Matthijs de Ligt's goal, the winning strike and his first in this competition, saw Ajax equal their record of most goals across all competitions in a single season (155). Let's also not forget that they are the first side to eliminate a team containing a certain Cristiano Ronaldo in the quarter-finals.

And finally, the Amsterdam giant will make their first semi-final appearance in 22 years. To put this into perspective, four of the players who started in their 2-1 win over Juventus (Van De Beek, De Jong, De Ligt, and Mazraoui) weren't even born when the Dutch side reached the penultimate stage back in 1996-97.
