In Ajax, they will be facing a difficult opponent, who rose against the odds to beat Real Madrid in the previous round of the competition. The Dutch outfit went into the second leg with a first leg deficit, but thrashed the Merengues at the Santiago Bernabeu and will be aiming for a similar outcome in Turin on Tuesday night. Pjanic will slot in as the deepest of the three central midfielders and look to pull strings for his side. The Dutchman, who will be joining Barcelona in the summer, has travelled with the squad though, and Erik ten Hag could decide to risk him in a game of this magnitude. Having been rested for the weekend league game, he will come in well-rested and will be a handful for Ajax to deal with.
