Amauri’s double handed Juventus a 2-1 win over Ajax in their Europa League last 32 first leg tie at the Amsterdam Arena.
Miralem Sulejmani struck on the counter-attack after 16 minutes as Ajax broke the deadlock before Amauri headed Juventus level in the 31st minute.
And Amauri’s aerial assault continued after the break as the Brazilian gave the Italian side the advantage ahead of the return fixture.
Juventus, languishing in sixth in Serie A, are enduring a season to forget after being knocked out of the Champions League.
But the bianconeri are unbeaten in the three games since Alberto Zaccheroni took over as boss, registering a win and two draws ahead of the trip to Holland.
