Champions League Match Preview: Tottenham vs Ajax

Tottenham lost their first ever game at their new stadium in a 1-0 loss to West Ham on Saturday and they’ll be looking to bounce back against a buoyant Ajax side. Spurs haven’t been wholly convincing of late having lost three of their last four competitive matches, with their sole success in that run coming against Brighton.

Ajax come into this tie on the back of an eight-match unbeaten run, with the only blip on the record in that time coming in a 1-1 draw with Juventus. The Dutch powerhouse have lost only one of their last 15 matches and come into this clash in London on a four-match away winning run.

Given Spurs’ midfield issues, and the absence of key forwards Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane, Ajax could secure a first leg advantage with a narrow win in England.

Team News

Tottenham- Son Heung-Min is suspended for Tottenham after his yellow card in the second leg 4-3 loss at Manchester City ruled him out of this match. Place bet on NaijaBet 24/7 on NaijaBet

With Harry Kane out, Lucas Moura is set to start alongside Christian Eriksen behind Fernando Llorente in attack.

Serge Aurier misses out, while central midfield pair Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks will be assessed, though their availability is in question.

Ajax- Carel Eiting is Ajax’s only injury concern for Ajax ahead of their trip to Tottenham.

The Eredivisie side won’t have played for a week by the time this match comes around after the Dutch FA postponed the weekend’s games in order for Ajax to prepare accordingly.

As such, they should be well rested for their trip to London.
