While Juventus will be buoyed by the returning Ronaldo, one player who has shone in his absence may find himself left on the bench.
Despite Italian forward Moise Kean scoring seven goals in his last eight games for club and country, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has hinted he could be an option off the bench.
"We need to leave him space to grow," Allegri said. "The substitutes are important, as we've already seen."
Meanwhile, Ajax have no new injury concerns with Hassan Bande and Carel Eiting long term absentees.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Onana; Veltman, De Ligt, Blind, Tagliafico; Schone, Van de Beek, De Jong; Ziyech, Tadic, David Neres

Opta stats
Ajax and Juventus will be facing for the ninth time in the European Cup/Champions League and for the first time since November 2004. The Dutch side have not beaten the Italians in the competition since winning the 1973 European Cup final in Belgrade (1-0).
Juventus are unbeaten in each of their last nine European matches against Ajax (W5 D4), including a draw in the 1996 Champions League final before going on to lift the trophy thanks to a penalty shoot-out victory.
Ajax are the first Dutch side to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League since PSV did so back in 2006/07. Indeed, Ajax find themselves at this stage for the first time since 2002/03, when they were eliminated by AC Milan.
Ajax (24y 202d) have had a younger starting XI on average in the Champions League this season than any other side left in the competition.
Only Lionel Messi (11) has had a direct hand in more goals in this season's Champions League than Ajax's Dusan Tadic (nine - six goals, three assists).
