The Dutchman has established a unique achievement.

The Jews tied with Juventus (1:1) in the first match of the Champions League quarter-finals at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam.

Ajax’s Matthijs de Ligt went to the field with the captain’s armband in yesterday’s duel with the Old Lady.

Thus, 19-year-old De Ligt became the youngest captain of the Amsterdam side, who led a team to the Champions League quarter-final match.

It’s interesting that Ronaldo shares the first line with Ibrahimovic according to the number of goals scored at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

Recall, Matthijs de Ligt said that he was open to a move to Liverpool, where his idol and partner in the Netherlands national team, Virgil Van Dijk, plays.
