Champions League: Only Cristiano Ronaldo is not enough – Ajax shines, Juventus lose


Only Ronaldo is not enough: Juventus did not hire Cristiano Ronaldo to finish Serie A first. The club has achieved this in the last seven years without the Portuguese very well. The Champions League title should be for the Italian record champions. Although Ronaldo scored the lead, scoring the last five goals in Turin in the Champions League, he can not deliver a magical night as the hat-trick against Atletico Madrid. The season finale in the premier class was a lack of frustration at injury time, by which he saw yellow.

Ajax Amsterdam won their second match 2-1 (1-1) in Turin, eliminating their next favorite title by beating Real Madrid 4-1 at home. Click here for the game report.

Game Scene: Eight seconds have passed since Cristiano Ronaldo was on the ground for the first time. He had the opponent's hand Joel Veltman near the outside line. If Juve had prevailed in the end, only that Veltman would be involved in the game scene. 27 minutes into the match, the home team took a 1 – 0 lead after 28 minutes, when Ronaldo's free kick scored just outside the penalty area.

The first semester: Juventus de Torino started exceptionally offensive, even against the ball, so they did not see them play for a long time. If Amsterdam goalkeeper André Onana had the ball, Juve put all the chances and Ajax's goalkeeper was forced to the ball. It took five minutes for Ajax to be in the opponent's half-ball. After just under 20 minutes, the Dutch managed to break free, without Juve having gotten a convincing opportunity. Van de Beek's draw (34) was a surprise. After the 22-year-old goal, Ajax opened the first half.

Chance Lost: 11 minutes into the game, Noussair Mazraoui had to leave the pitch. The left back had been killed a few minutes earlier in a duel with unhappy Dybala. For him, Daley Sinkgraven made his debut in the Champions League. The 23-year-old has six games in the Eredivisie this season, just once in the starting eleven. But Juve missed the chance to test the suitability of the Sinkgraven queen category. But because – once we have to talk about it – Ronaldo now does not come from the right, ran on Juve almost everything on the left.

Enjoy Ajax: For a long time you will not be able to see this team in the glow of the constellation. Frenkie de Jong joins FC Barcelona and De Ligt will not block the defense in Amsterdam next season. Also van de Beek, Neres and Ziyech should have aroused desires this season.

Champions League:
Ajax strikes Juventus

The second halfThe compensation seemed to have given the guests the belief in the next coup. Now Ajax were the best team, Juve tied at 30 meters ahead of their own goal and showed wonderful combinations of short passes. Wojciech Szczesny was seen beating the pitch in frustration at missing such a good chance to give his team the lead. After 53 minutes, Ziyech made an excellent save, tipping the awkward cross. Six minutes later, he drove a van de Beek trick on the crossbar. The winning goal of Ajax resulted from a combination of will and rebound. Matthijs de Ligt prevailed after a corner in the header duel against Daniele Rugani and Alex Sandro and netzt (67).

bad omen: Mattia de Sciglio could be a good left-back. But whoever detains him with Juve and tends to superstition, he may claim that he does not bring more of Sciglio into the premier class. Four times, the 26-year-old has stayed in the Champions League this season, four times lost to Turin.

Youth research: Juve today lacked some experienced accessories like Mario Mandzukic and Giorgio Chiellini. With an average of 28.3 years, he sent coach Massimiliano Allegri Juves to the Champions League team for three and a half years on the pitch. For the conditions of Turin, almost a junior team.
