There is little time to think about what happened in the first leg as the Champions League semi-finals have a one week turnaround time. Following their first leg on Tuesday 30th April, Tottenham Hotspur travel to Amsterdam to take on Ajax in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final. The game will be played on Wednesday 8th May at the Johan Cruyff Arena.
This match presents an opportunity for both teams which may not come around again for many years and that opportunity is to play in the Champions League final. Neither team were expected to go this far in the tournament but the final is within touching distance. Whichever team does progress, they will be the outsiders to lift the trophy but that would be nothing new, as both Ajax and Tottenham were not expected to come through their quarter-finals against Juventus and Manchester City respectively. So, who will come out on top in Amsterdam? Read on for our Ajax vs Tottenham predictions and Ajax vs Tottenham betting odds .
1. Ajax vs Spurs Predictions
Ajax have been playing some of the best football we have seen in the Champions League this season and that continued in the first leg of this tie. They started the game strongly at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and put their hosts under plenty of pressure. It was during the early spell of dominance that Ajax scored and Tottenham could not find a way back into the game, despite doing better in the second half. To win away from home in the first leg will give Ajax huge confidence they can repeat the result and get the job done in-front of their own fans. Ajax are on a run of seven games unbeaten at home in all competitions and will hope to extend that run come the final whistle of this match.
The Ajax vs Tottenham betting odds have the Dutch club as favourites to win, priced at 21/20 with Bet365. However, Ajax have failed to win their last three home Champions League games, drawing with Bayern Munich and Juventus plus losing at home to Real Madrid. Any draw would be enough to see them go through to the final and many Ajax vs Tottenham picks suggest we could see a very close game. The draw is on offer at 5/2 with Bet365.
Tottenham know a draw will not be enough for them and they need to win the game. The good news is they will have Son Heung-Min back in their ranks and that should provide them with a much stronger attacking threat than the first leg. Tottenham fans know they are not out of this tie but they have won only one of their last six away Champions League games and that came at Borussia Dortmund in the Round of 16. Spurs are the outsiders for this match, priced at 12/5 with Bet365 to win the match.

2. Champions League Ajax vs Tottenham Betting Odds
Ajax have struggled for clean sheets in recent home Champions League games. They conceded 3 in their final home group game against Bayern Munich, 2 against Real Madrid and 1 against Juventus. That suggests they are going to struggle to prevent Tottenham from scoring. Tottenham have scored in each of their last ten away Champions League matches, which is a good record. They scored 3 last time out against Manchester City have netted at Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona, PSV Eindhoven, Inter Milan, Juventus and Real Madrid over the past two years.
Considering Ajax have scored in each of their last thirteen home Champions League games, it would be a huge surprise not to see both teams get on the scoresheet. Both teams to score is available at 8/13 with Bet365.
Neither team have been particularly convincing home or away respectively in recent Champions League outings. Wins have not been easy to come by and therefore, this game could easily end level, which would send Ajax through. The draw and both team to score is 10/3 with Bet365.
With that in mind, we can begin to look at the correct score market and given we could see a few goals in this game, that makes the 2-2 correct score at 11/1 with Bet365 tempting.You can enjoy all the build up to this game with free Ajax vs Tottenham predictions and up to date Ajax vs Tottenham betting odds at BonusCodes
