Having concluded the first-leg in a one-all draw, Juventus is all set to take the field against Dutch side Ajax at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday in the second-leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals. As it stands, the Italian side has an edge in the fixture courtesy to talisman Cristiano Ronaldo’s 125th Champions League goal in the reverse fixture at Amsterdam. The goal was later neutralised by Ajax’s David Neres, setting the stage for a knife-edge in Turin in a repeat of the 1973 and 1996 finals.
In the league, Juventus have a comfortable lead but fell to a 2-1 defeat against a lowly SPAL side.
“The Scudetto will come sooner or later,” said Allegri, whose side hold a 17-point lead on second-placed Napoli with six games left.
“If we had put all our starters in, it would have been easier to win it, but there is the goal to obtain on Tuesday.”
Ahead of the match, Allegri said he was prepared for “a difficult match against a very impressive team”.
Juventus are two-time Champions League winners with their previous win coming in 1996 against Ajax. While the Dutch side have won the coveted title four times, with their third consecutive title in 1973 at the expense of Juventus.
Although the Allegri-led are favourites on paper, this fixture has the history to go on and defy what is expected with a great show.
