Ajax have been off the radar somewhat in Europe in the last few years despite their history as one of the most successful teams in this competition. With more money heading into the bigger leagues than the Eredivisie, the Amsterdammers have struggled to compete financially since their Champions League win in the mid-1990s but this year they have stunned everyone to beat Real Madrid and Juventus in reaching the semi-final stage.

Ajax earned a 1-0 victory in the first leg of this tie thanks to Donny van de Beek’s 15th minute effort. They head into Wednesday’s clash with a 4-0 victory over Willem II in the Dutch Cup final as they continue their quest for hat-trick of trophies.
Erik Ten Hag’s men have been the surprise team in this year’s Champions League, coming through European heavyweights Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Juventus on their way to the semi-finals. They are currently on a six-match winning run and are priced at 2.05 for another victory on Wednesday.
Ajax have no major injuries or suspensions and are likely to stick with much of the same team that started the first leg. Top scorer Dusan Tadic should continue in attack with David Neres and Hakim Ziyech providing support.
Tottenham Hotspur Team News
Tottenham were disappointing in the first leg as they mustered just one shot on target in a 1-0 defeat at home. They followed up that result with a similar defeat to Bournemouth in the English Premier League on Saturday.
Spurs’ season have suffered five defeats in their last six matches across all competitions. Mauricio Pochettino’s men are priced at 3.30 to win on Wednesday while a draw is set at odds of 3.60.
