Ajax vs Tottenham Dream11 Prediction
Tottenham Hotspur will look to put their bad form behind and start afresh when they lock horns with Ajax in the second leg semi-finals of the Champions League. With Spurs trailing 0-1 after they lost at home, they would look to draw level as quickly as possible. On the other hand, Ajax would like to win it and set up a finals date with Liverpool. After missing the first leg due to suspension, Son Heung-min will look to make amends when he makes a comeback to the XI. In all probability, he would be playing as a striker. Davinson Sanchez, who picked up an injury in his thigh during the loss at Bournemouth could be replaced by Jan Vertonghen. For the Spurs, Erik Lamela and full-back Serge Aurier are both available post hamstring injuries which will be a massive boost. On the other hand, Ajax has David Neres available following a foot injury.
UEFA Champions League Semi Final 2nd Leg:
“The negative result in the first leg obviously makes it more difficult, but the tie is still open. We know we need to win and perform to our best. It’s an exciting moment for us,” said Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
“We need to win this match, that will be our mindset. We have to stick to our own strengths,” said Ten Hag.
Spurs had merely one shot on target in the first leg against Ajax at Bournemouth. That was their joint-lowest total in a Champions League game and they would look to improve on that.
Among all the four semi-finalists, Ajax is the only side to have scored in all their matches and they would like that to continue. It is also a testament to the striking form they have been in.
