Ajax are without a grain of doubt the biggest and most pleasant surprise of the Champions League so far this season. In the round of 16 they unexpectedly knocked out holders Real Madrid, while last night (Tuesday) they sent Serie A giants Juventus the same way by beating them fair and square in the middle of Turin.
And if anyone has missed their games and considers their run to the semifinal “lucky”, they should really take a look at this video, depicting their usual buildup play. Even though the move ends with a hasty shot, note how they push Juventus lines back with a superb pass-and-move approach.
