Former Southampton midfielder Dusan Tadic led Ajaxs post-match celebrations after they stunned Juventus 2-1 in Turin to progress to the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in 22 years.

Juventus were the favourites to reach the last four following their 1-1 draw against Ajax in the Johan Cruyff Arena in the first leg and they took the lead in front of their own fans through Cristiano Ronaldos header after 28 minutes.

Just six minutes later, though, Donny Van De Beek equalised for Ajax with a precise finish before Matthijs De Ligts thumping header midway through the second half sealed another famous victory for the Dutch side during this seasons competition.

Ajax will now face one of Manchester City or Tottenham Hotspur for a place in the final at Atletico Madrids Wanda Metropolitano stadium and after overcoming a heavily-fancied Juventus, their players celebrated in epic fashion inside the dressing room.

Tadic, who joined from Southampton in a deal worth £11m last summer, has been one of the stars of their Champions League campaign with six goals and three assists in ten games and he got the celebrations going by exuberantly shaking an ice bucket up and down.

Andre Onana, the highly-rated Cameroonian goalkeeper also played a big part in the celebrations with his dance moves, while veteran striker Klass-Jan Huntelaar got in on the act by lifting his training top over his head.
