Tottenham vs Ajax (By: TFB)
The first Champions League semi final takes place in London as Tottenham welcome Ajax to their excellent new stadium for the first leg.
Tottenham are probably quite rightly favourites to win the match as they are a good side, especially at home. However, as everyone knows, they face a slight injury crisis with their best player Harry Kane still injured. Their next go-to player for goals in Heung Min Son but he will be suspended for the first leg. Spurs will also be missing a few other squad players which isn't ideal and could mean some tactical changes.
Ajax have been the surprise of the season and have excelled on the road in the competition. In the knockout stages they have been to Madrid and Turin and won relatively comfortably, especially in Madrid. They were unlucky to lose to Madrid at home after dominating while against Juventus they earned a solid 1-1 draw. A depleted Tottenham are arguably the easier of the 3 sides, however, they did knock out Man City in the last round.
Ajax have a full squad to pick from and have had longer to prepare for the match with Tottenham playing only 3 days prior. Ajax can certainly cause Spurs problems and could at least get the draw with an away goal.
