Allegri also praised Ronaldo, who had missed the previous four games with a thigh problem picked up on global duty.

Cristiano Ronaldo's diving header was his 125th Champions League goal during his illustrious career.

Ajax reached the competition last eight after beating Real Madrid 4-1 in the Champions League round of 16 second-leg encounter, while Juventus defeated Atletico Madrid 3-0. Indeed, Ajax find themselves at this stage for the first time since 2002/03, when they were eliminated by AC Milan. De Jong is already slated to join Barcelona next season, while 19-year-old captain Matthijs de Ligt is considered one of the top young defenders in Europe.

Ajax certainly should have scored in the 25th minute when Dusan Tadic set up Donny van de Beek inside the box, but his shot went agonisingly wide.

Juventus are unbeaten in each of their last nine European matches against Ajax winning five and drawing four of these games.

Ajax levelled inside the opening minute of the second half as David Neres curled a wonderful effort past Szczęsny after dispossessing João Cancelo.

Juve's advantage would not last long, however, and Ajax struck back just one minute after the break through Neres - the recently capped Brazil worldwide leaving Juve goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny no chance with his curled shot from the edge of the box after cutting in from the left. They were the driving force thereafter but were very almost caught out late on when Douglas Costa's strike cannoned back off the post.

Ronaldo scored a hat trick against Atletico Madrid in the last 16, nearly single-handedly overturning a first-leg deficit.
