Ajax vs Tottenham
Who’d have thought that Ajax would be playing Tottenham in the Champions League semifinal?
Spurs sealed a historic final four spot after a bonkers seven-goal thriller at Man City Wednesday.
VAR ruled out an injury time goal from Raheem Sterling as Spurs advanced on away goals.
Man City’s quadruple dreams are now dead.
Of course, Ajax reached the semis after an incredible win at Juventus on Tuesday.

Tottenham have four former Ajax players in their present squad and first team.
They include Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen, plus defenders Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertoghen and Davinson Sanchez.
Eriksen was asked to preview the Ajax game in an interview with BT Sport. He said:
We saw the game yesterday and they went through so it would have been a fairy tale to play them and now it is a fairy tale.
The first 10 minutes of this game and the last five was fairy tale stuff. So it’ll be fun to go back to play in the Arena.
Toby Alderweireld reacted to facing his old employers Ajax on social media.
The Belgian wrote “Ajax, your boys are coming home” in his post game Twitter update.
