Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag is pretty confident his team can still progress to the semi finals of the UEFA Champions League after drawing their home game 1-1 against Juventus.
After the game he said: “[1-1] is not the result you hope for, but it is a result. Last time we also lost 2-1 to Madrid at home – we are still good at it. We spent a lot of time in possession and were patient. And we had some very good opportunities in the game. At half-time I told them to keep doing what they were doing, you see that Juventus make mistakes.”
Allegri also praised the Ajax team saying, “Ajax are a great team, very good technically dribbling very well in the flanks. We had to make better use of some occasions, even if they are good at pressing second balls. When they scored at the start of the second half this gave him confidence, then some of our mistakes helped them, and we had to become more compact. I added so many technical players to let us breathe.”
David Neres’ equaliser cancelled Cristiano Ronaldo’s first half header to set up a relishing second leg next week.
