Tottenham Hotspur are in a precarious position heading to Ajax for the return leg of the Champions League semifinal. The English team lost the home leg in a disappointing fashion where Van De Beek placed it past Lloris to give Ajax 1-0 lead in the tie. The away goal puts Ajax in the driving seat and Spurs have a momentous task at hand in the away leg.

Tottenham are labouring

The current form of Tottenham is a great concern for their fans and the manager. The London based team has been poor in recent times dropping points everywhere. Their away form is nothing but atrocious and they could really be up against it on the road again. One could argue that the injury to a big name player like Harry Kane has impacted Spurs, but they have other problems which are evident.

.The English side will really need something special to overturn the deficit in the Netherlands. They will look to the likes of Eriksen, Moura and Son to lead them.

Ajax must be oozing

Ajax are in a great place right now. They recently won a domestic cup and the Champions League final is just a step away. The young vibrant side has taken the European competition by a storm, slaying one giant after another and now they are very close to what was unthinkable at the start of the season. The Dutch side will aim to have a repeat of first leg where they were brilliant and played Tottenham off the park.

Match Details:

Competition – UEFA Champions League, Semifinal 2nd Leg

Venue –  Johan Cruijff ArenA, Amsterdam

Ajax

  • Carel Eiting is the only absentee for Ajax with an injury. They have a clean bill of health except for the young midfielder.

Tottenham

  • Tottenham have a lot of injuries. Harry Kane, Serge Aurier, Winks and Davinson Sanchez are all out injured.
  • Jan Vertonghen suffered an injury in the first leg, but he should be available.

Ajax vs Tottenham Hotspur Playerzpot Fantasy Team

Fantasy picks from Ajax

David Neres | Van De Beek | De Ligt

  • David Neres struck the post in the first leg and he has every chance to put in the back of the net at home. The Brazilian winger scored a brilliant solo goal against Juventus in the quarterfinals.
  • Van De Beek is known for those late runs from midfield and the midfielder is thriving in the absence of an out and out striker.
  • De Ligt is a teenager who plays beyond his tender age. The tall defender is a calming presence at the back for his team

Fantasy picks from Tottenham

Son | Lucas Moura | Eriksen

  • Son is the main man for Tottenham in the absence of Kane. He was the player who got Tottenham through to the semifinals with his goals against Manchester City.
  • Lucas Moura, much like his countryman Neres, is a live wire who can create or score at any time.
  • Eriksen will want to make his return to Ajax special after spending his developing years there.

David Neres is an early doubt, but it is not a major injury and he is expected to be fit.
