Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico has warned Juventus that his side will face them ‘with the same enthusiasm we had against Real Madrid.’
Juve are considered favourites for their Champions League quarter-final with Ajax, but Tagliafico’s team thrashed holders Real Madrid 4-1 in the second leg of their last-16 tie.
“We’re going to have the same enthusiasm we had against Real Madrid when we play Juventus,” he told Mundo Deportivo.
“Ronaldo has to be stopped as a team. We have to face players of their quality with our weapons, winning the ball back, having possession, trying to take control of the game.
“It’s not going to be at all easy, but the tie is 180 minutes long. We have to arm ourselves strategically very well for these two games.”
