Juventus vs Ajax Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Juventus:
Szczesny; Cancelo, Bonnuci, Rugani, Sandro; Pjanic, Bentancur, Matuidi; Bernardeschi, Ronaldo, Mandzukic

Ajax:
Onana; Veltman, De Ligt, Blind, Sinkgraven; De Jong, Schone, Van de Beek, Ziyech, Neres; Tadic

Juventus host Ajax in the second-leg match of their Champions League quarter-final clash. The first match played at the Johan Cruijff ArenA finished 1:1. Cristiano Ronaldo scored for the Italians, while David Neres for the Dutch team. The Old Lady seems to be favorites ahead of this match, mostly thanks to the home advantage and Ronaldo. The Portuguese player was bought £100m with one purpose - to win the Champions League trophy. Juventus started furious in the group and had three victories after the first three rounds, but later showed some weaknesses. The Bianconeri were beaten 2:0 from Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano in the first knock-out stage, but Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in the reverse fixture securing progress for his team. All eyes are now turned to Ronaldo again. Juventus are entirely focused on this match and the weekend defeat at SPAL isn't surprise. They have a massive 17-point advantage in the domestic Serie A and the title is almost guaranteed. The atmosphere in the squad is good despite the defeat, while the players confidence is high. Coach Massimiliano Alegri has lot of injury worries ahead of this match as Giorgio Chiellini, Martin Caceres, Emre Can, and Douglas Costa are all struggling with injuries. Blaise Matuidi left the field early during the first leg match and he is rated as doubtful.

Ajax are the most pleasant surprise in the Champions League this season. The Dutch side were unbeaten in the group phase and then eliminated the defending champions Real Madrid, even lost 2:1 at the Johan Cruijff ArenA in Amsterdam. The squad, a mixture of young and experienced players, showed their class at Santiago Bernabeu. Ajax won 4:1 thanks to the goals scored by Dusan Tadic, Hakim Ziyech, David Neres and Lasse Schone. It was fantastic performance at Santiago Bernabeu. The French newspaper L'Equipe gave Tadic perfect 10/10 score after his Masterclass performance against Real. The Serbian player will try to impress once again. Tadic has been directly involved in 53 percent of Ajax's 17 Champions League goals this season, scoring six goals and assisting three. Coach Erik ten Hag has some good and bad news ahead of this match. Noussair Mazraoui is available after serving an one-match suspension, but left-back Nicolás Tagliafico is now banned for accumulated yellow cards. Hassane Bande and Carel Eiting are out injured, while Frenkie de Jong is rated as doubtful after pulling up with a hamstring injury in the first half of Ajax match against Excelsior this weekend.

Juventus vs Ajax Prediction:

Juventus are unbeaten in their previous nine matches against Ajax. The Bianconeri have good result from the first match and they are big favorites. However, the players that scored four goals at Bernabeu should not be underestimated. I expect an interesting match with goals on both sides.

As long as he had to play at Old Trafford, Barcelona and with one goal in the first quarter of the match, Manchester United won 1-0. The English have already made a major reversal to the institution by excluding Paris Saint-Germain, so the blaugrano should not be relaxed in any way today. In the championship with Huesca, almost all of the basic ones were resting, with the aim of being all prepared for qualification today. Solskieer's team did not have that luxury in the 2-1 on West Ham on Saturday, as they chase the four in the Premier League, a factor that also has the importance of

Good football again by Ajax in the event, although he could not beat Juventus in Amsterdam (1-1). Now the headquarters are with the Italian team, but everyone in the club knows they will have a very difficult night today. The Dutch run a lot, they have quality and certainly do not have the home-grown stress. Clearly all of Alegre is more experienced at this stage, but traditions are about to break. The two teams have the opportunity to score at least once again in the match

Porto vs Liverpool Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Porto:
Casillas; Militao, Felipe, Pepe, Telles; Otavio, Pereira, Herrera, Corona; Soares, Marega

Liverpool:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Milner, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Porto host Liverpool in the second-leg match of their Champions League quarter-final clash. The first game played at Anfield finished with 2:0 win for the English side. Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino scored the goals on that match. Porto will try to win with three goals, though it will be difficult. But the Portuguese champions were excellent so far in the Champions League, particularly at home. The Dragons have four victories on the four played home matches. Some of those victories were high. They managed to beat Galatasaray with 1:0, Lokomotiv Moscow with 4:1 and Schalke with 3:1 during the group phase. In the first knock-out stage Porto have eliminated Roma thanks to a 3:1 home win (after extra-time). Porto are the only remaining club in the Champions League to have won all of their home games in the competition this season. The actual domestic form is good, they are in series of five victories in Primeira. Sergio Conceicao's men managed to beat Feirense, Maritimo, Braga, Boavista and Portimonense. The atmosphere in the squad is good, while the players confidence is high. Conceicao has some good news ahead of this match. Two important players - Pepe and Hector Herrera - are back from suspension. However, this match comes too soon for Vincent Aboubakar who is close to a return after six months on the sidelines.

Liverpool have two-goal advantage from the first match and they are close to secure the second consecutive semi-finals in the Champions League. The home form is excellent, they extended their unbeaten home run across all European competitions to 21 games, winning 15 of them. Even more, the Reds have kept 12 clean sheets in this run, conceding just 15 goals. But away from home is a different story. Liverpool have lost all three group matches on road, suffering defeats from Napoli, Red Star Belgrade and Paris Saint-Germain. The Reds have scored just one goal on the mentioned three fixtures. It is true Liverpool won 3:1 against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, but it remains the fact they have problem playing away from home. Nevertheless, the overall form is good. The Merseysiders are in series of seven victories across all competitions. Last weekend they claimed an important 2:0 win over Chelsea. It was their first win over the Blues at Anfield in any competition since 2012. For this match Klopp has some injury issues. Jordan Henderson, who sustained an ankle injury in the second half of the Chelsea match, is rated as doubtful. Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are still recovering from their injuries. Full-back Andy Robertson is available for selection after sat out the first leg through suspension.

Porto vs Liverpool Prediction:

Porto are seeking a place in the semi-finals for the first time since the season 2003/04 when they lifted the trophy under Jose Mourinho. They will strongly attack from the very first minute to put the guests under pressure. But Klopp's players will have lot of free space for their fast counterattacks. Considering these facts, I expect an open and efficient match with goals on both sides.
