Soccer predictions for today for Ajax vs. Tottenham Hotspur
Ajax hosts Tottenham Hotspur in a match rematch of the UEFA Champions League 1/2 finals. The duel will be played on Wednesday, May 8, at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam.
Ajax‘s team won a 1-0 victory over Tottenham last Tuesday, making an important step towards the Champions League final. Donny van de Beek scored the only goal in the match and drew his team to the final on which Ajax could qualify for the first time in 23 years. The hosts won the Dutch Cup during the weekend when they defeated Willem II’s 4-0 draw at De Kuip Stadium. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar made two hits for the success of Amsterdam, and one goal scored Daley Blind and Rasmus Nissen. Erik ten Hag’s pupils have no win in their last three home games in the Champions League. The team failed to beat Juventus on the 1/4-finals after a 1:1 draw, and on the start of the direct elimination lost 1:2 from Real Madrid. However, Ajax is very close to finishing the race – a great success for the young team Erik ten Hag. Ajax has already played 17 games this season, starting with the qualifiers, and only one defeat in this match – Real Madrid‘s 1:2 loss at the home of the 1/8-finals.
Only one of the last 17 teams who lost their first match at the 1/2-finals in the Champions League qualify for the final in the tournament. That was Ajax’s team in 1996 – is the Tottenham team able to make such a turn against the Amsterdam? Mauricio Pochettino’s guys’ task is very complicated, given the self-confidence that their rival plays. Tottenham also lost five of his last six matches in all tournaments. Spurs are in a weak form and seem unlikely to win in Amsterdam. However, I think Londoners have the strength to score a shot and I will bet the BTTS option in this match.
