Frenkie de Jong put in yet another impressive performance for Ajax on Wednesday night in their Champions League quarter-final draw against Juventus.

The midfielder, who will join Barcelona in the summer, played a key role as the Dutch side held the Italian champions in Amsterdam.

His performance has already led to comparisons with Sergio Busquets:

Cristiano Ronaldo put Juventus in front in the tie, before David Neres levelled for Ajax to leave the quarter-final finely balanced ahead of the second leg.

De Jong certainly seems to have enjoyed himself in the Champions League this season and has looked completely at home in Europe’s top competition.

Ajax have already pulled off a huge shock by knocking holders Real Madrid out of the tournament, meaning Juventus will be wary ahead of the second leg.
