Champions League

Lucas Moura to receive a start? – Predicted 4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur XI to face Ajax



Tottenham vs Ajax Predictions: Tottenham Hotspur Line-up

Tottenham travel to the Netherlands to face Ajax in the second leg of Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday, as Mauricio Pochettino aims to take his team to the finals of the competition.

Spurs have tasted defeat three times in the space of the past seven days in a disastrous run of form. Back-to-back 1-0 defeats against West Ham and Bournemouth in the Premier League were accompanied by the same result in the first leg against Ajax.

Only a win in the Netherlands will be sufficient to turn the tide and take Tottenham to their first-ever Champions League final.

Team News

Son Heung-min will be available for selection after serving his one-game suspension in the first leg.

Jan Vertonghen missed the defeat at Bournemouth due to a nose injury he suffered in the first leg against Ajax but, he will be available for the trip to Amsterdam.

Probable Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris has been Pochettino’s first choice this season and he is set to continue in goal on Wednesday.

Kieran Trippier (RB)

Trippier has been very poor as per his standards this season and will have to be at his best to stop David Neres.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

A rock at the back, Alderweireld has to dish out a strong performance if Spurs are to go through to the finals.

Jan Vertonghen (CB)

Formerly of Ajax, Vertonghen will be raring to help Spurs win at Amsterdam on Wednesday.

Danny Rose (LB)

Despite playing the full game against Bournemouth, Rose could be preferred ahead of Davies at left-back.

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

Sissoko adds a lot of bite, tenacity and energy to the Spurs midfield. The Frenchman’s presence will be crucial against Ajax.

Victor Wanyama (CM)

Wanyama had a really poor outing in the first leg but, he’ll be raring to put in a strong performance on Wednesday.

Christian Eriksen (CAM)

The Dane will again be Tottenham’s most important player. He’ll need to have a stellar game if Spurs are win at Ajax.

Son Heung-min (LW)

Son’s absence in the first leg was a huge miss for Spurs and his availability will give them a massive boost against Ajax on Wednesday.

Lucas Moura (RW)

The Brazilian has blown hot and cold this season. Yet, he could be a threat down the right-wing.

Fernando Llorente (ST)

Llorente has done a pretty good job in Kane’s absence and Pochettino is likely to go with the big Spaniard up front.
