As we get set for kick off, let's have a quick look at the teams.

Juventus make three changes from the first leg with Mattia De Sciglio, Emre Can and Paulo Dybala all starting.

Noussair Mazraoui replaces the suspended Nicolas Tagliafico for Ajax while the inspirational Frenkie De Jong has been passed fit despite coming off with a hamstring problem in Saturday's 6-2 win over Excelsior.

TERRIFIC TADIC: Dusan Tadic has had a big hand in 53 per cent of Ajax's 17 Champions League goals this term. That's six goals and three assists to be exact.

Hello and welcome to LIVE updates of the Champions League quarter final, second leg between Juventus and Ajax in Turin.

The tie is finely poised following the 1-1 draw in the first leg in Amsterdam. The Dutch side dominated for long spells but fell behind to a superb Cristiano Ronaldo header on the stroke of half time. However, Ajax deservedly levelled straight after the restart through David Neres.

Who will claim that much-coveted semi final berth and a clash with Manchester City or Tottenham? We’ll soon find out - kick off 20:00 BST.
