Juventus coach Allegri: Don't write off Ajax threat

Juventus coach Max Allegri has welcomed their Champions League draw with Ajax.

The Bianconeri will face Ajax in the Champions League quarter-finals, with Manchester City or Tottenham Hotspur in the final four.

Allegri said, “I like this new system of the double draw, as at least you get it over quick. There's no point people saying Ajax are no match for Juventus, because they knocked out Real Madrid, have a lot of talent and are particularly tough to play against on home turf.

“It'll be different to the Atletico games and it would be a huge mistake to already start thinking about the semi-final."
