It’s the tie that really is capturing the imagination of every football fans across the globe.
Tottenham are hosting Ajax at the new White Hart Lane in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final match-up. Spurs overcame Manchester City in incredible fashion to advance to this round qualifying with away goals in a 4-4 aggregate score line. Meanwhile, Ajax have been blitzing everyone in their path, with Juventus their most recent victims with a 3-2 aggregate score.
Tottenham are slight favourites for this first-leg match and are priced at 7/5 to win by SkyBet. Spurs have defied the odds to reach this stage, with the squad and Mauricio Pochettino making this feat without Harry Kane. To make matters even harder, they will also be without Heung-Min Son who is suspended. It was in fact Fernando Llorente who grabbed the controversial winner against City so he and Lucas Moura will have to replace those rather large shoes.
The Brazilian is priced at 13/8 to score anytime whilst the towering Spaniard is priced at 11/1 to score a header.
Ajax are priced at 15/8 to win the match. The Dutch outfit have been undeniably fantastic this campaign. They have seen off Real; Madrid and Juventus to reach this stage and their attack is one of the scariest in Europe. Attacker Dusan Tadic has been sublime with his quick feet and whip of a left foot. The ex-Southampton man is price boosted at 5/1 to score first.
The visitors are priced at 4/1 to win and for both teams to score.
The referee for this match will be Spaniard Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz. The official is known for his no nonsense style of officiating however neither side has illustrated an aggressive style of play.
The match will be televised on BT Sport 2 HD and kicks off at 20:00.
