Ajax Starting XI Prediction vs Tottenham Hotspur: UCL Semifinal Leg 2/2



In the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final tie last week at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last week, Ajax made club history by recording their first ever victory over the north London side in three attempts. They take a 1-0 lead on aggregate into the second leg in Amsterdam on Wednesday night.

As for the other two meeting, they were beaten pretty soundly on aggregate, 6-1, in the two-legged UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup tie in 1981. The Dutch side is moving closer towards what looks like an all but inevitable at this point date with FC Barcelona in the UCL Final.
