Match background Only this chapter

Juventus and Ajax reconvene for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final with the tie finely poised after a 1-1 draw in Amsterdam.

• Cristiano Ronaldo made it eight goals in six matches against Ajax to put the visitors in front in the 45th minute at the Johan Cruijff ArenA on 10 April, but a David Neres goal 11 seconds into the second period ensured the teams would head to Turin all square.

• Both teams produced memorable second-leg comebacks in the round of 16. Ajax overturned a 2-1 home defeat by Real Madrid to oust the holders with a remarkable 4-1 success at the Santiago Bernabéu and reach their first quarter-final since 2002/03; Juve, meanwhile, were in trouble after a 2-0 first-leg loss at Atlético Madrid but recovered with a 3-0 victory back in Turin thanks to Ronaldo's hat-trick.

• While Juve are looking to reach a third semi-final in five seasons, Ajax have not made it to the last four since 1996/97, when their campaign was ended by Juve – the team who had also beaten them in the previous season's final.

Highlights: Ajax 1-1 Juventus

Previous meetings
• Ajax have won only two of their 13 European fixtures against Juventus, and none since 1974. Juve are unbeaten in their last ten games against the Dutch club, winning five of the last seven.

Fabrizio Ravanelli gave Juve an early lead but Jari Litmanen levelled before the break for Ajax, who were bidding to become the first team to retain the UEFA Champions League having beaten AC Milan in the final 12 months earlier; instead Juve were 4-2 winners on penalties.

• Juve have won all four of the teams' two-legged contests, most recently prevailing 2-1 in the Amsterdam first leg of their 2009/10 UEFA Europa League round of 32 tie and progressing after a goalless draw in Turin.

• The Bianconeri are unbeaten against Ajax in Turin (W3 D2), although they have scored only one goal in total in the last two fixtures, keeping clean sheets in both.

• The 2003 defeat at AC Milan ended Ajax's five-match unbeaten away run in European Cup quarter-finals (W2 D3).

• The Dutch club were without a win in seven UEFA Champions League knockout phase fixtures (D2 L5), since a 3-2 victory at Atlético Madrid in the 1996/97 quarter-final second leg that completed a 4-3 aggregate success, before their win at Real Madrid in the last round.

Head coach Only this chapter

Massimiliano Allegri

Date of birth: 11 August 1967
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: Cuoiopelli, Livorno (twice), Pisa, Pavia, Pescara (twice), Cagliari, Perugia, Padova, Napoli, Pistoiese, Aglianese
Coaching career:
Aglianese, SPAL, Grosseto, Sassuolo, Cagliari, AC Milan, Juventus

• A creative attacking midfielder, Allegri started out in his native Tuscany with Cuoiopelli and then Livorno, his hometown club. First appeared in Serie A for Pisa against Milan in 1988/89 but played only twice that season before heading back to Livorno.

• Returned to Serie A after helping Pescara win promotion in 1992. The following term he scored 12 goals under Giovanni Galeone, the coach Allegri still considers his mentor. After leaving Pescara in 1993, had spells at Cagliari, Perugia, Padova and Napoli before hanging up his boots back in Tuscany with fourth division Aglianese in 2003.

• Moved straight into coaching at Aglianese, prior to taking charge at SPAL and Grosseto. In November 2008 he won the Panchina d'Oro (golden bench) as the third division's best coach having led Sassuolo to promotion.

• Had earlier been appointed by Cagliari whom he led to ninth place in 2009, winning the Panchina d'Oro again, this time as Serie A's best coach. A bad run of results the following season prompted Allegri's dismissal on 13 April 2010 – although he had already done enough to earn a two-year contract at Milan.

• Allegri's first season at San Siro ended with his new club winning the Scudetto for the first time since 2004. Dismissed in January 2014 with Milan 11th in Serie A, that summer he was appointed to succeed Antonio Conte at Juventus. Allegri won the Scudetto and the Coppa Italia with Juventus in his first season, also taking his side to the final of the UEFA Champions League, and added further domestic doubles in 2015/16, 2016/17 – when they again reached the UEFA Champions League final – and 2017/18.


Erik ten Hag

Date of birth: 2 February 1970
Nationality: Dutch
Playing career: Twente (three times), De Graafschap, RKC Waalwijk, Utrecht
Coaching career: Twente (youth, assistant), PSV Eindhoven (assistant), Go Ahead Eagles, Bayern München II, Utrecht, Ajax

• Born in Haaksbergen in the east Netherlands close to Enschede, Ten Hag's early days were spent with local club Bon Boys before a move to the youth department of Twente, where he made his professional debut aged 19 in December 1989.

• A defensive midfielder and defender, he then spent two seasons with De Graafschap, winning promotion to Eredivisie in his first, before returning to Twente for two years. Ten Hag moved on to single-season stays at both RKC Waalwijk and Utrecht, and then returned to Twente again in 1996, this time for good.

• Reached the last 16 of the 1997/98 UEFA Cup, losing to Auxerre, and in 2001 he won his only silverware with the club, Fred Rutten's team beating PSV Eindhoven on penalties in the Dutch Cup final with Ten Hag as captain.

• After ending his playing career in 2002 he became head of Twente's youth department, also working as assistant coach for several years, alongside Rutten from 2006/07. Followed the head coach to PSV in 2009, serving as his assistant for three seasons.

• Took his first post as head coach at Go Ahead Eagles, winning promotion to the Dutch top flight in his 2012/13 debut season, before moving on to Bayern München's second team, winning the Regionalliga title in 2014 and working with Josep Guardiola. Took over at Utrecht in summer 2015, winning the Rinus Michels award as the Netherlands' coach of the year 12 months later. Succeeded Marcel Keizer at Ajax in December 2017, leading the club to second place in the Eredivisie at the end of that campaign and into the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time in four years.
