Tottenham Hotspur Vs Ajax Dream11 team
Hugo Lloris: Hugo Lloris has not looked assured, but the Spurs defenders always have been this season. The French International has a good defence and he has a greater chance of keeping a clean sheet in this game.
Toby Alderweireld: Toby Alderweireld has been the heartbeat of Spurs defence this season, making 45 appearances in all competitions this campaign. The Belgian International has the capability to shut down Ajax’s attack and nicks goals from the set pieces.
Matthijs De Ligt: Ajax Skipper Matthijs De Ligt scored the all-important goal against Juventus to progress to the last four of the competition. His composure and maturity to handle Cristiano Ronaldo throughout the game spoke volumes about his great display. He is a great asset from the set pieces as well.
Jan Vertonghen: There were many concerns after Jan Vertonghen was left out of the squad which faced West Ham on Saturday, but the Belgian International has trained on Tuesday. The centre-back likes to drive forward with his long bursting runs and scores goals from set pieces too.
Nicolas Tagliafico: Nicolas Tagliafico provides a different dimension to Ajax’s side. The Argentine International was serving the suspension in the second leg against Juventus, but he will be reinstated in the eleven. He drives forward, launching pile drivers and interlinking with the attackers.
Lasse Schone: Lasse Schone likes to sit back with the defence and dictate the play from the back. The Danish International wins plenty of duels in the middle of the park and takes set pieces for the visitors as well.
Christian Eriksen (VC): Christian Eriksen is the main man for Tottenham Hotspur due to the absence of Harry Kane and Heung Min Son. The Danish International’s contributions will be crucial as he is an expert in picking out passes to split the opponent’s defence. He can score goals and takes free kicks and corners.
Dele Alli: In the absence of Kane and Son, Dele Alli will be provided with the freedom to roam forward and score goals. The English International has missed the majority of the campaign due to injuries, but he has the capability to cause havoc when he finds his feet. He could operate behind the striker Lucas Moura.
Hakim Ziyech: Hakim Ziyech is a creative outlet who can create chances and take goals as well. The Moroccan International has scored 16 goals and has 16 assists this campaign. He scored twice against Real Madrid in the Round of 16.
David Neres: David Neres scored the equalizer in the first leg against Juventus. The Brazilian does not have nimble feet, but has raw pace to beat defenders and do well in the final third. He has scored 11 goals and set up his teammates on 8 occasions this campaign.
Dusan Tadic (C): Dusan Tadic has been a revelation with Ajax this season. The Serbian International has scored nine goals in the Champions League alone, thereby making him the Ajax top scorer this term. He will lead the forward line and he is always in the mix when the Dutch outfit receive the ball in the final third.
