Ajax vs Tottenham Predictions
Can Tottenham win the Champions League this season? Will Ajax hold on to the lead? Take a look at our prediction in the section below.
Will it be a Home Win?
Ajax is in its best form this campaign as they have managed to reach the semi-final round of the 2018/19 Champions League. They met the strongest clubs of the sport lately before they qualified for the semi-final round. The most popular teams Real Madrid and Juventus were in the row and Ajax confidently sealed a win over the two teams.
Real Madrid was defeated on an aggregate score of 5-3, whereas Juventus was knocked out of the League with an aggregate winning score of 3-2. Taking a look at the Eredivisie league, Ajax is on the top of the table tallying with Eindhoven after winning 26 of the 32 games played so far.
Will Tottenham Qualify for the Finals?
Tottenham has two important Leagues to focus on, as they have just one more match in the EPL which will decide their standing in the league and the Champions League semi-final match that will either qualify them for the finals or might get them knocked out of the League.
The Spurs were on the third spot in the Premier League but have now moved down the table to the 4th position because of their previous 0-1 loss match against Bournemouth. Tottenham’s star-performer Son Heung-Min was handed over a red card at the 43rd-minute which was followed by Juan Foyth’s 48th-minute red card.
Check out the shocking back-to-back red cards handed over to Tottenham players in the match against Bournemouth.
Ajax or the Spurs? – Our Prediction
Ajax is expected to win the second leg again as they have already reached the top spot in the Eredivisie league and are now completely focusing on the Champions League. They have been delivering unexpected goals against top clubs and might win this match also.
Tottenham advanced to the semi-final on an away goal advantage and will be traveling to the Amsterdam Stadium with high hopes to win the match. The Spurs follows an amazing defending strategy but need to work on the attacking skills. It might not be an easy win for Ajax as the Spurs will not go down without a fight.
