Date: on the 30th of April, 2019 (Tuesday)
Match start: 20:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Champions League. ½ final.
In the first semifinal of the Champions League Tottenham London will play against, perhaps, the main sensation of this tournament – Ajax Amsterdam.
Last round the Spurs have knocked out one of the main challengers for the victory Manchester City, having won on home ground with the score 1:0 and lost away match with the score 3:4. But the team of Mauricio Pochettino didn’t demonstrate any super football. The Londoners were just good in conversion of moments especially the South Korean forward was making efforts – Son Heung-min.
In absence of the main goalscorers of the team Harry Kane Son Heung-min was performing his function. But City was better in attack and this fact has been proved by the victory both in that match and some days later in frames of the championship (the win over Tottenham).
That is why Ajax has all chances for the first time in 23 years to get into the final of the Champions League. The team of Erik ten Hag demonstrates crazy football and it doesn’t matter what is the rival.
Having come to Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in a status of a chasing team the football players haven’t realised they are fighting against the defending winner of three last rounds.
The same picture is seen in a match against Juventus but in that match Ajax has showed that it is able to win due to reliable game in defense.
So, we believe that in this match Ajax can gain quite acceptable outcome for a return match. Tottenham may simply lack forces.
They have a number of injured key players, the battle on two fronts and that is why they won’t be able to cope with rapid game of the football team from Amsterdam.
