'Benatia thinks Ajax can win'

Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech has revealed that Medhi Benatia thinks the Dutch club can beat Juventus on Wednesday.

Ajax moved top of the Eredivisie at the weekend after PSV dropped points, but Ziyech made it clear the Champions League was his side’s priority.

“Right now we’re only focused on tomorrow’s game,” he said at a Press conference.

“We’ll see how it goes against Excelsior on Sunday, but right now we must concentrate on Juve.

“I hope Ronaldo plays. We want to challenge the best.”

The 26-year-old plays with Medhi Benatia for Morocco, the defender having only left Juve in January after two-and-a-half seasons with the Bianconeri… 

“Yes because he played for Juventus,” he continued.

“He says we play good football and we’re very strong as a team. Anything is possible. According to him we can beat the Bianconeri.”
