Ajax will face Juventus in the Champions League quarterfinals.

Ajax booked their place in the last eight with a stunning 4-1 win over Real Madrid in the Bernabeu. Their reward is a quarterfinal meeting with Italian giants Juventus.

Ajax will host Juventus, who saw off Atletico Madrid in the last round, on the 10th of April with the return leg six days later in Turin.

The tie is a repeat of both the 1973 European Cup final that Ajax won and the 1995 Champions League final that Juventus triumphed in. In twelve games against the Italians, Ajax have won twice, drawn four and lost six.

Should Ajax get past Juventus they would face the winner of Manchester City v Tottenham in the semi-finals.
