Ajax Prediction

Ajax secured what could be a vital 1-0 lead away at Tottenham in last week’s 1st leg at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and just as important could be the fact that the hosts hold an away goal up their sleeve as they head into this deciding leg in Amsterdam.

Ajax come into this encounter brimming with confidence following a six-match winning streak which includes Eredivisie wins against Excelsior, Groningen and Vitesse along with Champions League victories over Juventus and Tottenham, which were both away from home.

The hosts also added the Dutch KNVB Cup to their trophy cabinet with a recent 4-0 demolition of Willem II on Sunday, so confidence will be high prior to this crucial date with Tottenham.

Ajax have also lost just 1 of their last 11 Champions League ties at home which was a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid, and while the hosts have grabbed the headlines with their astounding results away from home with wins collected at Real Madrid 4-1, Juventus 2-1 and Tottenham 1-0, they still remain a tough unit to break down on home soil.

Tottenham Prediction

While confidence is riding high in the Dutch camp, Tottenham’s must be fragile at best following another disastrous defeat on the weekend, this time being a 1-0 defeat away at Bournemouth which saw Spurs reduced to 9 men after forward Son and defender Foyth were shown red cards.

That loss became Tottenham’s fifth defeat in six matches overall in all competitions, and the wider picture tells us that the Premier League visitors have now lost 7 of their last 11 matches, with the North London side perhaps running out of steam and now feeling the pinch without the services of striker Kane.

After a solid run of results in the Champions League which saw Tottenham put together an unbeaten run of seven matches without defeat, Spurs have suffered back-to-back defeats in the competition with losses to Manchester City and Ajax, while away from home, the visitors have managed just 1 away win from their 5 Champions League matches this season – a 1-0 win at Borussia Dortmund.

Tottenham will be boosted, however, by the news that Son is clear to play on Wednesday night despite his red card at Bournemouth.
