Ajax Amsterdam vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Ajax Amsterdam vs Tottenham

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Amsterdam ArenA

Date: 8th May 2019

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Tottenham will be looking to break down and beat a resilient Ajax side when they visit the Amsterdam Arena for this return leg with a 1-0 deficit to overturn.

Tottenham have hit a rough patch after their 1-0 win over Manchester City, losing 5 of their next seven games in all competitions.

Their 1-0 loss to Bournemouth in their last league game was their 3rd consecutive loss and obviously not the best run of form they should be in as they approach this second leg.

The good thing is that their losses during this period of time have been by just a single goal and with Son coming back into this side, they should carry more of a threat and look to score more than Ajax’s one away goal in this game.

Ajax are gunning for the treble this season and it has been so close on both the Eredivisie and Champions League front that they could get dumped out of both races by losing just one game in each.

They currently top the league table on goal difference as they have the same 80 points total alongside PSV.

They beat Willem II this weekend to win the Dutch Cup and they should be extra motivated to finish the job they started last week in London in this game.

Ajax have won their last 5 matches including Champions League wins against Juventus and Tottenham.

Oddsmakers have priced Ajax up as steady favourites to get the job done at home and progress to the final of the UEFA Champions League.

Goal markets point to a lively game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Hueng-Min Son and Lassina Traore head the first goalscorer market.
