Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has picked his side which will face Ajax in the Champions League semi final second leg this evening.
As expected, Heung-min Son comes straight back into the starting line up after missing the reverse leg in North London due to a one match European suspension.
Tottenham’s two previous Champions League away games against Dutch opposition ended in draws with a grand total of 10 goals, an average of 5 goals per game. Also, since the start of 2018, Spurs have won only one of their six Champions League away games, a 1-0 victory at Dortmund in this season’s round of 16 (D3 L2).
Going into the match, here are the form guides of both sides:
Last game: Willem II 0-4 Ajax (Sunday, Dutch Cup final)
Last game: Bournemouth 1-0 Tottenham (Saturday)
This is who starts this evening:
Ajax: Onana, Mazraoui, De Ligt, Blind, Tagliafico, Schöne, De Jong, Ziyech, Van de Beek, Neres, Tadic
Subs: Varela, Veltman, Sinkgraven, Huntelaar, Magallan, Dolberg, De Wit
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Wanyama, Sissoko, Eriksen, Dele, Lucas, Son
Subs: Gazzaniga, Foyth, Davies, Dier, Skipp, Lamela, Llorente
