Ajax Lineup Vs Tottenham: Here is how Ajax could lineup against Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League Semifinals.
Ajax will invite Tottenham Hotspur to Johan Cruyff Arena on Wednesday for the second leg of the Champions League Semifinals. The hosts are a goal ahead, thanks to an early strike from the attacking midfielder Donny Van de Beek at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last week.

Spurs will look to get into the front foot with an early goal and draw level parity, but Ajax have the habit of starting games on a high. The Dutch outfit were the better side amongst the two sides in the early stages of the game and made full use of it with a goal. On the other hand, Mauricio Pochettino’s side will slowly grow into the game, but they will be proactive to hand themselves a chance in this tie.
Mauricio Pochettino will recall Heung Min Son, who missed the first leg due to suspension. The Korean International could lead the line with Lucas Moura upfront. On the other hand, Ajax have the likes of Donny Van de Beek, David Neres, Matthijs De Ligt, Frenkie De Jong, Hakim Ziyech, and Dusan Tadic to cause havoc and win the game.
It will be an interesting game and the winner of this two-legged tie will play Liverpool at Wanda Metropolitano on June 1. Jurgen Klopp’s side pulled off a remarkable comeback against Barcelona by totally defying the odds.
We shall look at the Ajax team news, injury news, and predicted lineup.

Erik Ten Hag will not have any injury headache ahead of the clash on Wednesday. The Dutch outfit will have their whole side fit and firing for this tremendous clash.
Learning the trade of tiki-taka from Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich, ten Haag said he won the lottery by working under them.
“I still remember very well that when I quit the Eredivisie to go and coach in the German Regionalliga, lots of people in the Netherlands were sceptical,” he told German daily Bild.
“I never regretted that decision. To work at a club as big as Bayern, with strong characters like Pep Guardiola or (sporting director) Matthias Sammer was like winning the lottery.”
