'Lionel Messi Is The Best Ever!'

Juventus almost won it when Douglas Costa hit the post in the 85th.

Here's 90min's breakdown of the game.

However, Brazilian winger David Neres conjured a stunning equaliser nearly immediately after half-time to give Ajax a draw that was the very least they deserved.

"I don't know if they did or if it was Messi who chose to be quiet".

The Eredivisie leaders gave a terrific account of themselves in the game, and certainly won't be overwhelmed by having to score at the Allianz Stadium. Ajax are still very much in the tie, although left-back Nicolas Tagliafico will be suspended for the return after being booked here.

Frenkie de Jong was at the centre of most people's attention on Wednesday night as Juventus took on Ajax at the Johan Cruyff Arena and the Dutchman didn't disappoint.

However, he insists there is no problem between the players and revealed they discussed it after the game.

In the opening minute of the second half, David Neres capitalized on an error by Juventus winger Jose Cancelo - who provided the cross for Ronaldo's goal - and curled a shot into the far top corner.

The second leg is scheduled for Tuesday in Turin, with the victor to face Manchester City or Tottenham in the semi-finals. Massimiliano Allegri's side, though, will be well aware of what can happen should they underestimate what Ajax are capable of on the road - just ask Real Madrid.

Starting XI: Szczesny (6); Cancelo (6), Rugani (6), Bonucci (7), Alex Sandro (7); Bentancur (7), Pjanic (6), Matuidi (6); Bernarderschi (7*), Mandzukic (6), Ronaldo (7).

Ajax immediately went in search of a second and Nicolas Tagliafico fired into the side netting while Neres had the ball in the net again but was clearly offside.

Cristiano Ronaldo returned from injury and headed Juve into the lead just before half-time but Ajax fully deserved the equaliser scored by David Neres straight from the restart and pushed hard for a victor.

Most of those arrested were Italian, police said.
