Tottenham vs Ajax
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 30 April 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK / 21.00 CET
Venue: Hotspur Stadium (London).
Eredivisie did a huge favor to Ajax by postponing an entire round of league fixtures to May, for the team to concentrate better in the Champions League game against Tottenham.
The Dutch side really has been a revelation in Europe this season. No one expected the side to come this far, after carving a spot in the competition, only due to three qualifying rounds.
Spurs shocked the footballing world by taking out the quadruple-chasing Manchester City in the quarterfinals.
Pep Guardiola, widely considered as the best coach in the world right now, was given a reality check by Mauricio Pochettino, who are still aiming for his first title.
Spurs-Ajax game should definitely be a nail-biter, as both have overcome odds to reach this stage of the tournament, and will certainly be gunning for the title.

Tottenham vs Ajax Prediction
Oh! What a story it’d be if Ajax could all the way. After taking out three-time defending champions Real Madrid and Mr. Champions League – Cristiano Ronaldo himself, the team surely does have the capacity to upset Spurs.
While Ajax has had some extra days of rest due to Eredivisie postponing a whole round of league fixtures, Spurs just lost an exhausting game against West Ham.
Also, Tottenham lost three of their last four games, whereas Ajax won their last four in a row, and was unbeaten in 14 of their last 15. On the road, the Dutch team won seven of their last eight.
Going on, Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min will not be playing for the hosts, the former due to injury, and the other one due to suspension.
As things stand, Ajax has the upper hand, and they have been exemplary in away ties in the Champions League. Trust them to deliver.
But Spurs won’t just roll over though. They showed their fighting spirit against the all-conquering Manchester City.
And, they do have the home advantage, where the team has scored in 17 of their last 19 appearances. Expect both teams to find the back of the net.
