One place in this seasons Champion's League final has now been determined following one of the most dramatic European nights in years at Anfield last night. But who will be facing Liverpool in the Wanda Metropolitano?

We do have a chance of an all English final, but if Tottenham are to make it through they will need to win in Ajax having lost the home leg 1-0 last week. As witnessed last night though, comebacks are certainly possible in this competition.

Ajax arrive in the better form of the two sides having made it six wins on the spin in all competitions with a win in the Dutch Cup at the weekend. Tottenham in contrast lost their fifth game in six with defeat away to Bournemouth.

Carel Eiting looks like being the sole absentee for the home side. Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Serge Aurier and Davinson Sánchez all miss out for Spurs.

Ajax were most impressive defensively in that first leg in restricting Spurs to just the one shot on target over the course of the ninety minutes in what was just about a textbook away performance.

Tottenham will benefit from the return of Son Heung-Min, but the fact that they will have to go on the front foot here may just suit an Ajax side who have proven deadly on the counter. We fancy the home side to progress.

Prediction: Ajax 2 - 1 Tottenham
