Juventus vs Ajax - Preview, Live Match | 16 Apr 2019

Matthijs de Ligt hailed Ajax's "unbelievable" achievement after the Dutch club ended their 22-year wait for a Champions League semi-final appearance by shocking Juventus.

Juventus shares were down 17.7 percent at 1.39 euros at 0730 GMT after plunging almost 21 percent when trading in Milan began.

Juventus signed five-times World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo this season in their bid to add the Champions League to their domestic dominance.

There is a clip doing the rounds on social media from Ajax's victory against Juventus in Turin on Tuesday night which nearly perfectly encapsulates the Dutch team and their remarkable Champions League run this season.

Juventus: Szczesny 8, De Sciglio 6, Bonucci 6, Rugani 6, Alex Sandro 7, Pjanic 8, Matuidi 6, Emre Can 7, Bernardeschi 6, Dybala 6, Ronaldo 7.

It is the first time since 2010 that Ronaldo failed to reach the last four, having won the competition the last three years in a row with Madrid.

Ajax took complete control in the second half and their geometric passing repeatedly opened up the Juventus defence, which sorely missed injured veteran Giorgio Chiellini.

Juventus and Bayern Munich are also keen on De Ligt but one source has said the Netherlands worldwide "only wants to listen to Barcelona".

De Jong, however, speaking to FourFourTwo ahead of that tie in our May 2019 issue - out in shops now - admitted that he would do his best to knock out Barça in the Champions League if they meet in the final. "For sure we won't play for 0-0".

But Ajax were level within six minutes when Hakim Ziyech's shot fell into Van De Beek's path and the midfielder made the most of his good fortune with an assured finish into the bottom corner.

That name was burnished further with the last Ajax team to win the Champions League in 1995, when a majestic side boasting the likes of Frank Rijkaard, the de Boer brothers, Clarence Seedorf, Edgar Davids and Patrick Kluivert beat AC Milan in Vienna.

"We've scored goals at the Nou Camp before from corners and crosses. we can do it, no doubt about it". "[Compared to the team that played in the 2017 UEFA Europa League final] We are stronger and we are showing it game by game".

So it didn't come as a surprise that, straight after the first leg, Solskjaer was buoyant about United's chances of advancing.
