Ajax won against Tottenham in London and it’s now up to the Spurs to try and win at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam on Wednesday evening. It won’t be easy because the English side has some serious problems with injuries, but they definitely won’t lack any motivation. After all, it’s the Champions League final that’s at stake here.
We’ll start this Ajax vs Tottenham prediction by saying that the Dutch won a big win last week in England. The score was 1:0 but considering that it’s the away goal we’re talking about here, they now have a pretty decent advantage. Of course, this doesn’t mean they will defend with all they got. On the contrary; if you’ve watched any Ajax game this season, you know that defending is not their style.
This team has scored in every single Champions League match this season, even though they’ve played against some really tough opponents. Ajax has already knocked out a number of heavyweights including Real Madrid and Juventus. And they’re now a step away from doing the same against Tottenham.
They’re in a really good form, having won their previous 6 matches in all competitions. And the last time they lost was in March against AZ Alkmaar in an away game in Eredivisie. Ajax has lost only one game this entire season at the Johan Cruijff Arena. It was against Real Madrid, but the defeat didn’t cost them their Champions League spot.
The main reason why Ajax fans should feel optimistic ahead of this game is that all of their players are fit and ready for the big clash. Not to mention that they’re extremely motivated to get to the final. Of course, it’s not only up to them. The Spurs will also have their saying.
Before we go to the Ajax vs Tottenham betting tips, we need to talk about the form of the away side. The Spurs are in a dreadful form. They’ve lost 5 out of previous 6 matches, counting all competitions. And the worst thing is that in the previous five matches, they’ve scored only one goal.
The main reason why they’re very poor at scoring is that their best player Harry Kane is out due to an injury. Unfortunately for them, Kane isn’t the only one who will probably miss the Ajax game. The same goes for Winks, Aurier, Sanchez, and Vertonghen. On the bright side, Son is back after missing out in the previous clash with Ajax.
Still, the question is will he be able to help them in the Netherlands. The Spurs have been terrible on the road this season. This team has lost all but one away game since January.

Ajax vs Tottenham Prediction
Considering that Ajax always play attacking football and that Tottenham need to score at least once, it’s almost certain that we’re going to see many goals here. But, who’s going to win? I think Ajax will get to the final, but whether they’ll win the game or go through by playing a draw, I’m not 100% sure.
