Tottenham Lineup Vs Ajax: Here is how Spurs could lineup against Ajax in the Champions League Semifinals.
Tottenham Hotspur will face off Ajax in the second leg of the Champions League Semifinals at Johan Cruyff Arena. Ajax scored an early goal through their attacking midfielder, Donny Van de Beek last week and it proves to be the all-important away goal.
It was a very tough contest and Spurs were not able to break down the resilient defence albeit having the majority of the possession in the second half. Mauricio Pochettino’s side did not create any clear cut chances and struggled to find their mojo against the fearless Ajax side. It was a very tough game and the English outfit will be hoping to change the complexion of the tie as quickly as possible.
On the other hand, Ajax have punched above their weight in this competition, but they have been thoroughly dominant in their victories over Real Madrid and Juventus, and Spurs in the first leg. Irrespective of the result, they will be proud of their side and will continue to thrive without pressure on Wednesday. The likes of Frenkie De Jong, Matthijs De Ligt, Hakim Ziyech, Dusan Tadic, Donny Van de Beek, David Neres, and Nicolas Tagliafico have been scintillating and they will hope to continue the same in the second leg.
The winner of this tie will face Liverpool at Madrid on June 1.
Here is how Spurs could lineup against Ajax in the second leg of the Champions League Semifinals.
Harry Kane will continue to sit on the sidelines after Mauricio Pochettino declared that the English striker will be out for the season unless they qualify for the Champions League finals. Jan Vertonghen had a face injury against Ajax in the reverse fixture and he is expected to feature in the starting lineup with a protected mask.
Juan Foyth came on as a substitute against Bournemouth before getting marching orders after just two minutes. He might be preferred over Keiran Trippier. Moussa Sissoko was used as an impact substitute last week and the French International will start in the midfield department.
Heung Min Son will be reinstated in the starting lineup after serving a one-match suspension.
Tottenham Hotspur: Hugo Lloris, Juan Foyth, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Danny Rose, Victor Wanyama, Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Lucas Moura, Heung Min Son.
