- Venue: Amsterdam Arena
- Wednesday 8th of May 21:00
- Referee: Felix Brych
Ajax is doing wonders this season, and the club from Amsterdam is just one step away from the ultimate game of the season. They are looking good at the moment, and the last victory in the KNVB Bekker against Willem II only proves that. The Lancers won 4-0 on the road, posting their 9th win in the previous 10 matches. That one who didn’t end with them triumphing was against Juventus, and it ended 1-1. When Ajax plays goals are frequent, and their style of play know nothing else but to attack. It is their philosophy which this team follows since the Johan Cruyff era. Prior to this game, five home contests all saw both sides to score, and three went above 3.5 goals. That can clearly tell you what kind of football we might expect this Wednesday in Amsterdam. Don’t think that hosts might defend the advantage from the first leg. That is not in their nature.
Tottenham is pretty bad right now. Against Bournemouth, the players were so intense and frustrated which is why referee showed them two red cards. They have three losses in a row and have been defeated five times in the past 6 contests, which is not a good thing before such an important match, historical one we might say. Though, the terrifying matter for every Spurs’ fan is the fact that they have nine defeats in previous 10 events outside their stadium, and they are now facing one of the most offensive and lethal sides in entire Europe. Also, Pochettino has enormous problems with injured players, as several vital guys can’t play or aren’t fully fit. Harry Kane is out, for example, and that is a huge blow for this company.

Ajax doesn’t have any issues at the moment, and all of their players are feeling ready for this clash.
Tottenham, on the other hand, has numerous troubles. Kane is out as we said. Serge Aurier also, Harry Winks too, Jan Vertonghen. Eric Lamela is questionable. Also, Dele Alli’s condition might not be 100% fit, even though he played against Bournemouth.
The efficiency of this game should be high, because of all the mentioned things about Ajax’s style of play. Also, Tottenham needs to be more aggressive and have an offensive-minded approach if they want to advance to the finals. It is not an odd thing to see Ajax conceding a goal at home, which is why we suggest betting on both teams to score and over 2.5 goals, 888sport offers great odds for that bet. Meanwhile, Tottenham allowed at least one goal in 10 of the latest 11 road contests. As soon as the first goal breaks the ice, there will be fireworks all over the place, because one of the teams would need to chase the result. For all the braver punters, we would suggest with over 1.5 HT. Risk is high, but the odds are excellent.
Regarding the final outcome, Ajax has an edge there. The swing this team has is unstoppable at the moment, and their high morale will decide the winner in this case. At the start of the season, Tottenham was looking good away from home. But now this team looks like a defeated army each time they step in front of the rival’s fans. We truly don’t know the reason for that, but what we do know, is that Ajax deals with these types of opponents very confidently.
