Ajax vs Tottenham (By: Hardcore)
In the first game against Juventus that finished as a 1-1 draw, four players of Ajax were booked (Tagliafico, de Jong, Schone and Ekkelenkamp). Second game in Italy had no cards for Ajax but this was mainly because Ajax outplayed Juventus and controlled that game completely. Now Ajax will face Tottenham in the second return leg and in the first one they played really well beating Spurs with 0-1, two players of Ajax were booked (Tagliafico again and Veltman).
In this second game Tottenham Spurs will see the return of their best offensive player Son. Son has scored two goals against Manchester City and he was vital offensive piece in almost every recent Tottenham game, without him they are lost. This was clear in the first game where they failed to score at home against Ajax that are not such a strong defensive team at all.
With the return of Son probability for Tottenham's qualification is greatly increased and Ajax will have to work hard to stop him. Liverpool yesterday showed that anything is possible so both teams will do everything they can to get to that final. Both teams arguably have what it takes ot beat Liverpool, a team that is known for choking in finals.
Tottenham will still miss Harry Kane but with Son back and their backs against the wall, offensive football is their only choice here. Ajax will not hold back at their home ground and this young squad only knows how to play in offensive way. Both teams should have a lot of problems defensively and a lot of cards is what I'm predicting here, no one will dare to let their targets outrun them and risk conceding, every goal matters. I can see a lot of bookings in this second game with a red card included.
