Team News:
Juventus
Juventus are preparing to face the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals against Ajax, and many players were rested during this weekend's clash with SPAL to be ready for Tuesday's encounter.
Cristiano Ronaldo returned to action after a brief injury layoff to play a pivotal role in the first leg draw and, after being rested during ​Juventus' Serie A defeat against SPAL on Saturday, he should be fit to start again on Tuesday.
Whilst the news surrounding Ronaldo is positive, Massimilano Allegri does have a number of other issues to contend with. Giorgio Chiellini, Martin Caceres, Emre Can, and Douglas Costa are all set to miss out through injury, while Blaise Matuidi is a doubt after leaving the field early during the first leg.
Predicted line-up: Szczesny; Cancelo, Bonnuci, Rugani, Sandro; Pjanic, Bentancur, Matuidi; Bernardeschi, Ronaldo, Mandzukic.​

Ajax

No such concerns for Ajax, as Hassane Bande and Carel Eiting are the only two players currently missing through injury. After the Dutch side's impressive first leg performance, they are unlikely to tinker too much with their starting XI.
Predicted line-up: Onana; Veltman, De Ligt, Blind, Tagliafico; De Jong, Schone, Van de Beek, Ziyech, Neres; Tadic.
Head To Head
Juventus certainly have the upper hand when it comes to the history of this fixture, as I Bianconeri are unbeaten in their previous nine matches against Ajax.
In fact, the last time the Dutch side got the better of their Italian opposition was back in 1973, when they lifted the European Cup in Belgrade.
Prior to the first leg tie, the last time the two teams met in the Champions League was back in 2004, but they did face off against one another in the Europa League in 2010, where Juventus prevailed 2-1 over two legs.
