Things are really heating up in the Champion's League now, with just the four teams remaining in the completion. First up in this week's semi-finals, Ajax travel to London to take on Tottenham Hotspur.

Both of these clubs have been around for some time now, but this will surprisingly be the first ever meeting between the sides.

Both sides overcame the odds in the previous round, with Spurs scraping through a quarter final for the ages against Manchester City, and Ajax beating Juventus in Turin to make it through.

Harry Kane, Harry Winks and Serge Aurier are all out injured for Tottenham, whilst Son Heung-Min is suspended. Carel Eiting looks like being the sole absentee for Ajax.

Spurs didn't warm up for this game in the best of manners with a disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to West Ham.

Ajax in contrast arrive here seeking a fifth win on the spin having comfortably beaten Vitesse at home last week.

Spurs started slowly at home in this competition with defeat to Barcelona, but have since beaten PSV, Inter Milan, Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City here.

Ajax are unbeaten in their last nine away games in the completion, scoring two or more in each of their last three.

No Kane, no Son, poor at the weekend against West Ham…Spurs have home advantage in their favour, but not much else. Having already won at Real Madrid and Juventus, we fancy Ajax can do so again here.




Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 1 - 2 Ajax
