Tottenham Hotspur Ajax Tips, Predictions and Odds
Tottenham Hotspur host Ajax in European Champions League on Tuesday 30th April, 8:00pm at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Visitors always struggle
Given that they have moved around so much, Spurs' home stats don't always hold up to scrutiny, but the fact that Barcelona are the only visitors to have beaten them in European competition since 2016 must be seen as a positive omen.
Match result top tip: Spurs or draw @ 1.44
Action at both ends
Spurs have scored in every one of their Champions League outings this season, and Ajax have also scored in all but one of theirs. Dynamo Kyiv managed to shut the Dutchmen out in the group stages, but they've been devastating in attack ever since.
Both teams to score top tip: Yes @ 1.67
A value bet
With goals to be expected at both ends, over 1.5 goals is the obvious bet. This is not always the most lucrative market, but on this occasion the bookies are offering very generous odds, making it well worth a punt.
Over/under top tip: Over 1.5 goals @ 1.30
Despite a marvellous run in the competition, Ajax have actually struggled early on in Champions League matches this season. They've conceded the first goal in 4 of their last 5, and Spurs must back themselves to extend that run.
Team to score first top tip: Spurs @ 1.95
A familiar face returns
With injuries and suspensions wreaking havoc on their squad, Spurs need those who are still available to deliver. Christian Eriksen has repeatedly stepped up this season when his side has needed him, and a goal against his former employers would be particularly sweet.
Player to score first top tip: Christian Eriksen @ 11.00
