Ajax vs Tottenham
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 8th May 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam).
Well, it’s time that we stop calling Ajax the dark horses of the competition, and give them the proper respect they deserve.
Do it once, it might be a fluke. Do it twice, it might be luck. Three in a row, pull the bandwagon over.
Spurs tried their very best to take advantage of their new home stadium in the first leg, but the Dutch side walked away with the win, and an away goal.
Now, Tottenham has a mountain to climb, against the young Ajax squad, who just won their domestic cup in style, with a 0-4 win. The team has really set their sights on the treble, and are just four wins away from it.
While the English team can find solace in the fact that they really did go beyond their dreams with a semifinal appearance in this prestigious competition, that too by putting a halt to the quadruple dream of Manchester City – they need to accept the fact that the journey might end here.

Ajax vs Tottenham Prediction
While it may be hard to believe, Spurs have lost their last five away ties in a row, and nine of their last ten. They have also conceded two or more goals in seven of these ten matches.
Ajax, on the other hand, won their last six fixtures on the trot, and is unbeaten in their last ten. They also managed to win 15 of their last 17 ties, while losing just a single attempt during this stretch, and drawing a game against Juventus.
The team has also scored in their last 22 home ties, and did so twice or more in 19 of them. Impressively, they scored three or more goals in 16 of them as well.
Going on, Spurs have no option but to attack. They trail by one goal in aggregate, and one away goal nonetheless.
Ajax is already proficient in breaking down defenses, and give them this extra advantage, and the team would have a field day. Also do consider that they are taking on a Tottenham, who lost five of their last six match-ups.
Erik ten Hag realizes this huge opportunity, and he will line up for the tie with that seriousness.
The helplessness of the visitors in having no choice but to attack will lead to the first goal by Ajax, and once that is done, Spurs will switch to all-out-attack mode, which will lead to more goals by the hosts.
