Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong: No fear facing Juventus

Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong insists they face Juventus in the Champions League without fear.

They meet Juve in the quarterfinals on the back of knocking out Real Madrid.

De Jong said: “[Juve are] one of the stronger opponents we could have drawn.

“I saw their 3-0 win over Atletico and they played very well. When I was around 10 or 12 years old, Ronaldo already was one of the best players in the world. So it is nice that I will now face him for real.

Juventus will be favourites, but that was the case against Real Madrid too. I reckon we have a chance."
