Match Preview

After winning a 19th KNVB Cup over the weekend, Ajax will look to keep their treble dream alive as they welcome Tottenham. The Amsterdam outfit earned a hard-fought 1-0 advantage, although they have failed to win in their last three Champions League (CL) home matches (D2, L1).
Ajax are only the third ever side to win each of their away games from the R16 to the semi-final – the only other two went on to lift the trophy. However in the knockout phase alone, Ajax are winless in seven at home (D4, L3), although they have progressed from each of their three prior CL ties in which they played the second-leg here.
Tottenham will aim to become only the second side to win on aggregate after losing at home in the first-leg of a CL semi-final – the only team before them to do so was Ajax (1995/96). Notably though, Tottenham must better any result they have achieved thus far away from home in the competition this term (W1, D2, L2), with their one win a 1-0 victory at Dortmund.
In fact the visitors’ first-leg 1-0 defeat to Ajax is part of an active run of five consecutive 1-0 scorelines involving Tottenham (in all competitions), four of which they lost.
Players to watch: Ajax man Donny van de Beek has been involved in goals in three of his last four CL appearances (two goals, one assist), scoring before half-time in his last two.
Son Heung-min returns for Spurs, providing a huge attacking boost. He scored a brace in the opening ten minutes in their last CL away match.
Stat attack: Five of Ajax’s last seven competitive home games have produced over 3.5 total goals.
Tottenham’s last two away matches in Holland featured a combined ten goals (3-3, 2-2).
Tottenham’s all-time record against Dutch opposition stands at: W9, D5, L4.
