Ajax vs Tottenham 101 Great Goals prediction: Ajax 2-3 Tottenham

Donny van de Beek’s strike is the goal that separates AFC Ajax and Tottenham Hotspur heading into the second-leg.

The Dutch league leaders continued their incredible free-flowing football in the first-leg and will be hoping to do the same on Wednesday.

Tottenham head to Amsterdam in poor form and without Harry Kane, meaning they will be looking to Heung-min Son for inspiration.

Champions League preview: Ajax vs Tottenham

Ajax took their first step towards claiming a famous treble on Saturday by winning the KNVB Cup final.

The Dutch league leaders defeated Willem II 4-0 with Daley Blind, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Rasmus Nissen the goal scorers.

Last week at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was also another big step towards their dream as they beat Spurs 1-0.

Van de Beek, who has now scored four Champions League goals, proved to score the winner in the first-leg in north London.

Both Ajax’s two wins in the knockout stages of the competition this term have come away from home.

They defeated Real Madrid 4-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu but lost 2-1 in Amsterdam.

Against Juventus, they held them to a 1-1 draw at home before winning 2-1 in Turin.

Ajax must now prove they can do the business at the Johan Cruyff ArenA and under the pressure of leading the tie.

Can Tottenham overturn Ajax’s lead in Amsterdam?

Tottenham Hotspur have it all to do in Amsterdam on Wednesday following their first-leg defeat.

Last week, their injury-plagued squad told as the line-up fielded by Mauricio Pochettino struggled to get a foothold in the game.

Although this time, whilst they may be without Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Moussa Sissoko are back and ready to start.

Son’s European suspension is over whilst Sissoko has fully recovered from a groin injury.

Given their poor form, injuries and they are trailing in the tie, Spurs enter as underdogs something with Pochettino will hope to make use of.

Tottenham proved at the Etihad they have plenty of goals in their side but also defensively they demonstrated that there is still much room for improvement.
