Juventus 1 – Ajax 2

Juventus are out, Ajax are through.

On a remarkable night in the Champions League, Ajax booked their spot in the semifinals for the first time in 22 years.

Ajax progressed through to the final four the hard way.

Cristiano Ronaldo put Juve 2-1 up in the tie with a header in the first half.

However Ajax were soon level when Donny van de Beek found the target in the 34th.

Dutch centre-half Matthijs de Ligt won the match for Ajax with a header midway through the second period.

Marc Overmars & Edwin van der Sar

Premier League legends Marc Overmars and Edwin van der Sar are now senior officials at Ajax.

Overmars, the former Arsenal winger, is the technical director at the Dutch giants.

Van der Sar, who played for Fulham and Manchester United, is the chief executive in Amsterdam.

Long after the full-time whistle blew in Turin, Overmars and Van der Sar came out onto the pitch to celebrate with the away fans.

Overmars, wearing a smart white shirt, pulled off a ‘Klinsmann dive’ as he flopped on his belly on the pitch.

Van der Sar was more reserved with his celebrations as he simply applauded the travelling support.
