Turpin ref for Juventus-Ajax

French referee Clement Turpin will officiate the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final between Juventus and Ajax.

It kicks off on Tuesday at the Juventus Stadium at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT) after a 1-1 draw in Amsterdam.

Turpin will be assisted by Nicolas Danos and Cyril Gringore, with Nicolas Rainville and Francois Letexier in the VAR booth.

Benoit Bastien is the fourth official.

He already officiated the contentious 3-3 draw between Ajax and Bayern Munich in the group stage, showing straight red cards to Maximilian Wober and Thomas Muller.

The Frenchman was also in charge when Ajax beat Dynamo Kiev 3-1 in the Champions League preliminary round in August.

This season, Turpin also oversaw Inter’s 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur and Roma’s 2-0 home defeat to Real Madrid.

His only previous game with Juventus was a 1-1 draw away to Sporting CP in October 2017.
