Tottenham Prediction

Overall recent form for Tottenham has been questionable to say the least as Spurs have gained just three wins from their last 10 matches in the Premier League with wins against Crystal Palace, Huddersfield Town and Brighton which were all recorded on home turf but six defeats within this 10-match sequence has prevented Tottenham from already nailing down a Champions League spot.

Form at home though has seen Tottenham suffer just one defeat from their last 10 matches overall which includes eight wins, so the hosts will be confident that they can get a result at home in this 1st leg.

However, as dominant as Tottenham have been at home in recent times, they’ll be without star strikers Harry Kane (17 goals) through injury and forward Son (12 goals) who is suspended for this important 1st leg. Son’s absence could be pivotal for Tottenham as he had taken up the reigns after Kane was injured.

Tottenham have won their last four matches at home on the trot in the Champions League which includes wins against PSV, Inter Milan, Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City, but they’ll now have to do without both of their leading goalscorers for this 1st leg.

 

Key-Facts – Tottenham v Ajax

  • Tottenham have won just 3 of their last 10 matches overall in the Premier League
  • Tottenham have lost just 1 of their last 10 matches overall at home
  • Ajax have won their last 3 away matches in the Champions League matches

 

Ajax Prediction

Ajax have benefitted from not being involved in domestic league action in the Dutch Eredivisie on the weekend, so tonight’s visitors will have had a full week to prepare for their trip to London for this crucial 1st leg tie at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Ajax will be brimming with confidence having won their last four matches overall on the trot with wins against Excelsior, Groningen and Vitesse in the Eredivisie along with a stand-out 2-1 win away from home against Italian Serie A league leaders, Juventus, in the previous round of the Champions League.

That result in Turin certainly made the rest of the Champions League competition sit up and take notice of this impressive Ajax outfit who are packed with youngsters full of quality, along with goalscoring midfielder Ziyech (16 goals) and forwards Tadic (24 goals), Huntelaar (15 goals) and Dolberg (11 goals).

The visitors have also won their last three away matches on the trot which includes notable and impressive wins at AEK Athens 2-0, Real Madrid 4-1 and the aforementioned 2-1 win at Juventus.

Betting Tips Verdict

Tottenham have looked off the boil in recent weeks and have edged their wins rather than being completely dominant while Ajax will really fancy their chances of taking a lead back to Holland with them. Ajax have shown they fear no-one and could well cause yet another upset, but back them with the well priced handicap in this one.
