Ajax take a one goal lead back from London to the Johan Cruijff Arena for this Champions League semi-final second leg.

Predictions

Ajax currently sit on top of the Eredivisie on 80 points with just goal difference separating them from rivals PSV. They have won their last six games in the League going into this weekend’s match at home to Utrecht and won their last tie 4-2 at home to Vitesse Arnhem.

Tottenham are third in the Premier League table on 70 points at time of writing, four ahead of hated rivals Arsenal who are in fifth place. They face a trip to Bournemouth on Saturday morning before turning their attention to this huge European tie. Their last league game was a 1-0 loss at home to West Ham United.

Ajax came second in their Champions League group behind Bayern Munich, before knocking out holders Real Madrid in the first knock out round, then Juventus in the quarter-final before winning 1-0 in the first leg of the semi-final in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last week.

Spurs finished runners up to Barcelona in their Champions League group, ahead of Inter and PSV, before putting Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City to the sword to set up this tie with Ajax. A 2-1 win for Ajax is well worth a shout.

Betting Tips

An Ajax win is available at 23/20                                                             

Ajax have been irresistible this season and were dominant against Spurs in the first leg in London. Unibet have an Ajax win at 23/20.                                                    

Total goals over 2.5 at 8/11

Spurs must score and will have to be more attacking then they were at home, with Son Heung-Min returning from suspension they will have some extra firepower. Meanwhile, Ajax have scored in every one of their homes this season and that could be why the bookies are offering odds of 8/11 for the over 2.5 goals scored market, including at 888Sport.

Statistics

Head to Head

Before the first leg these sides had only ever met twice before and that was in the 1982 Cup Winners Cup competition. Spurs won the first leg in Amsterdam 3-1 and then won their home game 3-0 to set up a tie with Irish side Dundalk in the second round before eventually going out to Barcelona in the semis.  

Stats

  • Ajax have lost just once at home in all competitions this season and that was a 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the first knock out round – they also drew 3-3 with Bayern and 1-1 with Juventus.
  • Spurs have lost their last four away games in all competitions and have won just once in their last nine. In Europe this year they have only won once on the road and that was a 1-0 win away to Dortmund. They lost twice and drew the other two of their five road games in this season’s Champions League.
  • Ajax are hoping to win their fifth European Cup and lift their first Champions League trophy since 1995 when a Patrick Kluivert goal sealed a 1-0 win over Milan.
  • Tottenham will be hoping to overcome their first leg defeat and reach their first European Final since beating Belgian club Anderlecht over two legs in the 1984 UEFA Cup Final.
