WHITE FLASH 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (Italian), JUVENTUS COACH, MASSIMILIANO ALLEGRI, SAYING (ACCORDING TO OFFICIAL TRANSLATION): "Ajax is a strong team.

They eliminated Madrid.They won against Bayern Munich.

They are really technical.

We will play against Ajax twice in the quarter-final, and so tomorrow will be two big matches.

Both sides will show a lot of technique tomorrow and [it will be] also a big, open match.

Maybe it does not end 0-0." STORY: Cristiano Ronaldo has been passed fit to play for Juventus in their Champions League quarter-final first leg at Ajax Amsterdam on Wednesday (April 10), coach Massimiliano Allegri has said.

Ronaldo was rested by the Turin club after his sensational hat-trick against Atletico Madrid in the last round of the Champions League on March 12, but picked up a thigh strain while on international duty with Portugal last month.

Although Juve will be without defender Giorgio Chiellini and midfielder Emre Can, the return of Ronaldo will be a massive boost as they seek to end their 23-year wait to lift the Champions League trophy.

The 34-year-old is the all-time top scorer in Europe's elite club competition and almost single-handedly dragged Juve into the last eight with his treble against Atletico in the last 16 after the Italians trailed 2-0 from the first leg.

After having been given a scare by Atletico in the last round, Allegri said his side will be more offensive in Amsterdam to ensure they get an away goal.

Ajax thrashed Real 4-1 away to reach the quaerter-finals 5-3 on aggregate having finished second in Group E behind Bayern who they held 1-1 in Munich before a 3-3 draw in Amsterdam.

Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag wants his side to use those positive experiences and prove once again they can play at 'an unbelievably high level'.
