Brazil worldwide David Neres scored on the other side of the break with a superb curling effort.

The huge gap just goes to show Ronaldo's milestone in the continental competition having scored 25 more goals than Messi's impressive tally. "His timing and movement is different to everyone else's, there's nothing you can do about it", said coach Massimiliano Allegri.

"We are not anxious, we have great respect for Ajax but you have to be ready".

After Lionel Messi fell to the ground bleeding following a challenge from Chris Smalling on Wednesday night in the UEFA Champions League, the defender has revealed what he and the Argentine discussed when the game was over.

Ronaldo had not played for his club since scoring a hat-trick to dump out Atletico Madrid in the last 16, and his goal here saved the visitors in the face of another fine Ajax performance.

Year after year the 34-year-old has produced when his team need him most.

'Grease' Is Getting a Prequel Film About Summer Nights
After all, the original film did include an entire song devoted to explaining the very backstory Summer Nights purports to tackle. A third said: "Can we not have a Grease prequel about Rizzo where she shows the world how she came to be such a badass b***h".

The Dutchman said: "The last time we lost 2-1 at home to Real Madrid, so everything is still alive for us".

The goal - initially flagged for offside before being awarded via a video review - came in the 12th minute during an exhilarating spell when Barcelona's possession exceeded 80 per cent at Old Trafford. After a quick combination, Hakim Ziyech almost curled the ball into the far corner, but Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny blocked his shot.

Juventus only displayed their attacking threat in patches, with Federico Bernardeschi lively and Ronaldo hooking one chance wide. Portugal right-back João Cancelo clipped a superb ball into the box to meet the run of Ronaldo, who powered his header past Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana.

The match pits rising star Frenkie De Jong (soon to be a Barcelona player) and the rest of a generational Ajax side taking on the giants of Italy, Juventus, and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Erik ten Hag's thrilling side earned a draw in this repeat of the 1973 and 1996 finals thanks to a brilliant David Neres goal just after the restart at a boisterous Johan Cruyff Arena.

However, Juventus' parade was ruined moments after the commencement of the second half, whenDavid Neres netted the equaliserwith a left-footed shot into the corner.
