Betting Preview: Juventus vs Ajax: Italians Are Favourites



Italian champions Juventus are favourites to secure a last four berth at the expense of Champions League quarterfinal opponents Ajax Amsterdam.

Their last eight tie is delicately poised after both sides played out a 1-1 draw in their first leg meeting at the Johann Cryuff Arena in Amsterdam last week.

An opening goal from Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo just before the halftime whistle was cancelled out by David Neres for a youthful Ajax team that was very impressive against an experienced Juventus side.

Juventus were made to wait for an eighth successive league title at the weekend after lowly SPAL came from behind to beat the Old Lady 2-1 at home in their Italian Serie A meeting at the weekend.

Ronaldo was rested for the SPAL game but he’s expected to return to the Juventus starting XI for the home clash with Ajax on Tuesday night.

Juventus have the winning odds of 1.71 according to Surebet247 while Ajax Amsterdam are unlikely to secure a win with odds of 5.25.

Italian champions Juventus could still qualify for the semifinals with a goalless draw against the Dutch Eredivisie leaders and the possibility of this result between the two sides is at the odds of 3.80 as confirmed by Surebet247.
