Juventus were added to Ajax’s list of UCL scalps.


Matthijs de Ligt says Ajax are far from finished after booking their place in the Champions League semi-finals.


The Dutch club shocked the football world again after they knocked Juventus out of the Champions League on Tuesday night.


Ajax, who dumped Real Madrid out of Europe’s elite competition in the round of 16, sealed a second-leg comeback at the Turin as goals from Donny Van De Beek and De Ligt cancelled out Cristiano Ronaldo’s opener - that was confirmed by VAR after suspicions of a foul in the build-up.



However, Ajax held on to book their spot in the last four at the expense of the Italian giants.


"There's still something to play for - we're not satisfied. The next games are also going to be important," captain De Ligt told BT Sport.



"I can't describe what kind of emotion we have. It's unbelievable that a squad from the Netherlands is showing the world what we can do.


"We did it against Bayern Munich, against Real Madrid and now against Juventus.


"We have so much potential, we're all still quite young, and I think everyone saw what we can do.



"We could have scored more, it could have been 4-1, and that's a really big compliment for us."
