- Ajax have scored 32 goals in Europe in 2018-19, a club record in a European season.

- De Ligt (19 years, 247 days) is the second youngest defender to score in a CL KO match, after Joel Matip (19-240) for Schalke 04 against Inter in the quarter-finals on 5 Apr 2011.
- De Ligt’s goal was the 20th for Ajax in the Champions League by a teenager; no other team have more than 14.

- Juventus are looking to reach the Champions League semi-finals for the third time in the last five seasons, also making the last four in 2014-15 and 2016-17.

- The reverse match was just the third time Juventus have drawn the first leg of a Champions League knockout match away from home – they progressed against Rosenborg in the 1996-97 quarter-final, and were eliminated by Man Utd in the 1998-99 semi-final.
- Ajax have been eliminated on two of the three previous occasions they’ve drawn the first leg of a Champions League knockout tie at home, most recently in the 2005-06 last 16 against Inter Milan.
- Juventus have lost two of their last five Champions League home games (W3), as many as they had in their previous 45 in Turin in the competition (W28 D15 L2).
