With another trophy in his gallery and the Dutch Cup champion belt in his chest, Ajax host Tottenham on Wednesday, May 8, closing the round of the Champions League semifinals 2018/2019. The meeting will be held at the Johan Cruijff Arena, in Amsterdam, starting at 16h (Brasília time).
In London, the Dutch made it 1-0. So they can come to the decision if they win again or even draw. The English remain a simple victory, but since two or more tries. If they return the marker, they will cause a 30-minute extension. In extra time, the regulation also establishes greater value for the goal scored away from home. In this way, there will only be definition by penalties if the period has no ball in the net.
On Sunday, May 5, in Rotterdam, Ajax confirmed their favoritism in the decision of KNVB Beker, the Dutch Cup in its 2018/2019 version. He beat Willem II 4-0 and got the first of three trophies he could get.It only had a bit of difficulty until he opened the scoring, which happened in the 38 minutes of the initial stage with Blind. However, the next minute he expanded with Huntelaard. Then he just managed the front. They completed the rout with Huntelaar in the 27th minute of the final and Kristensen in the 31st minute. All within what could be expected to maintain the dream of reaching the second achievement of the “triple crown”, something that the team achieved in the 1971/72 season.Coach Erik Tem Hag even managed to promote the cast relay. The Brazilian David Neres, for example, started at the bench entering only the final stage. Midfielder Tadic left the field in the 18th minute of the second half, avoiding further damage.Of breaking, he had no problem of bruising. Thus, the only low for Wednesday’s match should even be midfielder Carel Eiting, who since February is in the care of the medical department dealing with a serious knee injury.
The result of Tottenham at the weekend was not one of the happiest. By the penultimate round of the English Premier League season 2018/2019, against Bournemouth, at home to the rival, lost by 1 to 0. It was the fifth defeat, including the Champions League, in the last six matches.It is clear that the team did not support the large number of games they had over the period and lost their breath in the final stretch. It was the only team in the top leagues in Europe not to sign on the last two transfer windows. This is because he used all available resources to complete the works of his new stadium.In practice, the defeat on Saturday had few consequences. The London side have lost to Chelsea third place in the standings, however, depending only on their result on the final day, when they will receive Everton, to secure a place in the G4 and, thus, vacant in the 2019/2020 edition of the Champions League. It only needs the tie. Maybe even losing if he qualifies once that wide advantage in the balance of goals in comparison with Arsenal, fifth place and only rival in this dispute.The biggest concern was the lack of control shown by his athletes. Tottenham ended the match with two less athletes. South Korean striker Heung-Min Son was sent off in the first half and Argentine defender Jon Foyth took the red lead in the 28th minute of the second half. The exclusions, of course, were decisive for defeat.They have no effect on Wednesday’s meeting, but Tottenham will be injured. The defendants are Serge Aurier and Jan Vertonghen; midfielders Erik Lamela and Harry Winks; and striker Harry Kane.
Football Prediction of the Day Ajax vs Tottenham
Tottenham’s defeat for Bournemouth is not as important for the UEFA Champions League clash. The English have clearly held their ground for Wednesday’s game and will most likely show greater dedication and superior football. The point is that Ajax has an extremely fast counterattack and able to exploit spaces that the Londoners will have to leave to seek victory. In this scenario, the prognosis in the equality ends up being a good option of guess for the duel by the return round of the semifinals of the Champions League version 2018/2019.
