    If anything, this shows how UEFA is on the wrong path and bringing down the game of football. It's just dreadful to have 4 or 5 teams from Spain and England in the group stages of the Champions League each year, and a team like Ajax having to start their season in July and fight through 3 qualifying matches when they do not even have a squad together yet. UEFA are destroying the game in the long term trying to get as much money as they can in the short term. And then those rich teams only get richer and can buy every single player from this Ajax team to make sure they will not be a threat next year. It's a fucking disaster.

    I see a lot of comments about Ajax beating Real Madrid and also Juventus, but don't forget they also played 2 ties against Bayern Munich which they should have won (even the Bayern coach admitted they were lucky) and two matches against Benfica (quarter finalist Europa league) one win and one draw away. In al those 4 matches Ajax was the better team.

    False stats all over the place, did you actaully see the match.....the first match ajax dominated juv, ronaldo scored a cheeky goal nd wasnt seen the whole match. Neres scored the 1-1 first match second match juventus craweld out of hes shell but still ajax had possesion of 58% first half, second half it was above 63% , if anyone would have watched the match will tell me that im right...

    juventus / Italia hasn't had a solid defender since 2006! all these younger Italian defenders absolutely suck ! they lack speed, range , and are very poor at man marking. chiellini, barzaglia, and bounucci all stink !!!

    Ajax played really well and the win was deserved. And as for Juventus, they can’t expect that Ronaldo does all the work...i mean, to get to the semifinals he scored the goal and now he scored too. He’s one of the best in the world, but he can’t carry the team all by him self. No matter how good he is, he doesn’t replace a team

    And... and... and CR7 cannot make miracles all the time. He did his big bit in this match in addition to the many goals he scored already including his usual hat-tricks. So Ajax didnot kick CR7 out of the Champs league. JUVENTUS kicked him out.

    The Dutch league isn't that bad. At least we have a real competition. Ajax lost at PSV away 3-0 and lost away to my club Feyenoord 6-2 this season. In Holland we are used to a titlerace going down to the very last competitiongame.

    The Pillars of Ajax are : Blind, Lasse, Ziyech, Tadich, Onana and Tagliafigo not Frenkie, deligt and van debeek !!! they are good players but not what the media made them....

    no chance for JV next year coz C7king may leave JV this summer.......maybe go to MU that Ferguson really wants C7king to return...or Paris playing wid Mbappé or Barcelona wid Messi.. I think this is the consistency problem with C7king n JV players......in the match all JV players were lazy except for C7king who was desired to win. Defense n Midfield performed really really bad...Really disappointed... also Coach strategy of JV was so old n prudent n players could not cooperate with C7king well....without C7king JV 99% stopped elimination round ..............

  • Arunachal Entertainment

    Everything is wrong with juventus player ..midfielder and defence should be change completely and good forward to support cr7 only then juventus will win champion league title next yrr

    dybala has suffered the most I guess
    he is a great young talent but is not being given enough chances whenever mandzukic is playing
    dybala should be playing every match alongside ronaldo
    he would get to learn a great deal from him
    nd the problem of not enough pace in the team would be solved atleast for the final third with bernardeschi on the right wing

  • Raymon Plug

    all the credits to ajax,
    but all these kind of interviews ends with " yeah, but Real isnt the Real it was last year" "Yeah but Bayern isnt the Bayern from last year" "yeah but Juventus isnt the Juventus from last year".
    they are doing an absolutely wonderfull job against each and everyone of them.

    they will slaughter (no offence) Tottenham hotspurs aswell.
    the way they play, the way the youngsters growing up alongside the veterans, its a match made in heaven.
    no doubt about going through to the finals,,, Barcelona will be another level, but well see. ive got faith in them.

      @LFC 77 They played the long ball in the second half and engaged in the Spurs' physical game while they should have played their own passing game like they did the first half. Ajax has nobody to blame but themselves for this loss, they have enough quality to beat Spurs and they proved that during the first leg. Shit happens.

    I think that only De Ligt (80, Barca) , De Jong (80 Barca) Ziyech (5, Munich?) will leave and maybe only when they do make an offer Ajax cannot refuse (Neres, but only for 70+) The rest I think they will stay.. max 4 will leave (Instead of Neres, who signed also a new contract, also Tagliafico could move to Atletico madrid for 40 + ...... we wil manage that.. dont forget for a team as Ajax with a total budget of 90 m, this year they will receive prox 450 - 500 M ... we have also a good scouting system... trust us

    Finally someone on the panel said it... Experience is overrated! I have been of that belief for some time that when it comes to winning titles or knockout games, everyone seems to believe that experience is what wins it simply because it's what usually happens. But, fail to realize, until now, that experience played a less significant role in said team's triumph than their actual performance, tactics, determination and effort. Now Gab has shed the light on this and I'm glad for it.

    No Chiellini, no Douglas Costa, No Mandzukic. Playing 11 were not best. Rugani, Szczęsny, Cr7, Emre Can, Bonucci, Alex Sandro were fine. Berna, Dybala, Pjanic, Matuidi, Di Sciglio and Kean were waste.

    Its a team game , when you have a team thats hungry and working as a team things like this happen.
    My sons Team playing in 1st grade u12 (first time in that top flight) played a team SC (ill call them) that beat them by 10 goals earlier in the year , this team was undefeated in the league with 6 games to go, we play them this Day , SC are at home , game kicks off and you can see our team has turned up to play (even though we hadn't won a game yet) My Son scores in the first 10 min 1-0 , then our other striker scores at the 15 min mark 2 -0 to us .... SC not happy , they start fouling , getting dirty , we go to half time 2-0 up , they - SC come out firing, and score a cheap goal so 2-1 , but our team defends that lead like thier life depends on it , my son (number 9 striker) makes a defensive run chasing down a CDM all the way from the oposition goal box to our corner flag!!!!! tackled and then stayed to mark for the shy in, and stays back as a defender for a good 5 min until we get the ball and then he sprints full pace forward so they had some one to pass to, he gets it , gets taken out , we soak up some more presure, and then the final whistle.
    My Sons team (bottom of the ladder with 0 wins 2 draws) beats the undefeated SC thier team almost all giant kids some almost 6ft , and our team a mismatch team from all different disolved teams that are mostly u11 with 7 under 12 kids , most smaller kids, and only played together for half a season, worked as a team to roll the Division Giants SC , everyone was shocked.

    Now, some cr7 fans say it's about teamwork, can not do it on their own, but criticizes Messi when Argentina or Barcelona can not win
