Ajax star David Neres believes the club’s low key status could be pivotal in their chase for Champions League glory.

The four-time Champions of Europe have emerged as one of the dark horses in the competition after seeing off Madrid at the Bernabeu.

That result was further backed up with a hard-fought 1-1 draw at the Crujiff Arena on Wednesday night with the return leg at the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday.

However, David Neres the Brazilian prodigy that cancelled Ronaldo’s opener recently gave his verdict about the upcoming Champions League clash against Juventus.

“I think Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester City are the strongest team and the favourites to win the competition”, said the talented winger via Calcio.

Frenkie de Jong – The future of FC Barcelona

Ajax have qualified for their first Champions League semi-finals since 1997, so let's talk about one of the players who played a vital role in their success - the 21-year old Frenkie de Jong.

“The fact that we don’t have as much pressure as the other big teams have is helpful for us. We are not obliged to win, like Real Madrid against us”.

Neres has been in superb form for the Dutch giants having notched in double figures in the club’s chase for success in both Europe and Eredivisie.

The 22-year-old Brazilian winger is one of the most sought-after wingers and has been recently linked to Liverpool.

Ajax are favourites to win the Dutch League and an upset at the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday will rekindle memories of the club’s glory days.
