Ajax host Tottenham in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semifinal
Time: 12:30 am IST
First leg: Tottenham 0-1 Ajax
Going into the second leg of the semi finals, Spurs and Ajax have had contrasting weekends while the former succumbed to a 1-0 loss at Bournemouth with two players being sent off the latter won the KNVB Cup defeating Willem II by four goals to nil. Ajax have a 1-0 advantage going into the second leg of the semi final where they will welcome Spurs to the Johan Cruyff Arena. Spurs have an uphill task, the return of Son will be a good boost for the side as they aim to come back from a 1-0 first leg defeat at home.
Manager Erik Ten Hag has no injury concerns and will most likely field the same starting 11 that got the job done at the Spurs new staidum.
Heung Min Son will return to the side to play in the second leg after serving his suspension which will be a major boost for the team. Jan Vertonghen is likely to feature in the second leg after withdrawing early from the first leg due to a concussion. He was rested for the weekend fixture against Bournemouth.
Onana; Veltman, De Ligt, Blind, Tagliafico; Van De Beek, Schone, De Jong; Ziyech, Tadic, Neres
Lloris; Trippier, Vertonghen, Alderweireld,Rose; Sissoko, Wanyama, Alli, Eriksen, Son, Lucas
SCORE PREDICTION: Ajax 2 -1 Tottenham
Ajax’s incredible run of form has seen them overcome the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus. However, they failed to win the home leg in both these fixtures which will give Spurs a psychological boost going into the game. However, given their recent run of form, Ajax will be a bit too much for the Premier league side given the advantage of the away goal. I predict a 2-1 win for Ajax and favour them to go through on aggregate.
