The battle of the underdogs expected to be very entertaining 

<p> </p><p></p><h2>Ajax vs Tottenham</h2><p></p><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-champions-league/ajax-amsterdam-vs-tottenham-hotspur-3778467/?mtid=1"><strong>Wednesday, May 8, Johan Cruijff Arena</strong></a></p><p>Ajax won the 1st leg 1-0 on the road and are in the driving set ahead of the 2nd leg. They outplayed Tottenham imposing their rhythm and missing many chances to make it 2-0 and to solve the qualification issue from the 1st leg. They extended their brilliant run of form winning the Dutch Cup by beating Willem II 4-0 last weekend in the finals. They enter this match on the back of 10 unbeaten matches winning 9 in the process.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Problems with your connection?&lt;br /&gt;Call David &amp;amp; Donny... 🛰&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/wilaja?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#wilaja&lt;/a&gt; 🏆 &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/EyvYreKjoN\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/EyvYreKjoN&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— AFC Ajax (@AFCAjax) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/AFCAjax/status/1125368904560386049?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;May 6, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><p>On the other side, Tottenham are not in the best run of form right now losing 5 of their previous 6 matches across all competitions including a 1-0 away defeat to Bournemouth in which Son and Foyth were red carded before conceding the losing goals. Despite that shocking defeat, Tottenham will finish the Premier League season in top four taking advantage of Arsenal and Man United recent results. Tottenham must overcome the 1 goal deficit from the 1st leg but they are struggling to find the back of the net scoring just 1 goal in their last 5 matches. Harry Kane and Jan Vertonghen are ruled out of this Champions League clash but luckily for Mauricio Pochettino and Co. Son Heung-min will be available for the second leg coming back from suspension.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;\"It's a massive week and that's why we need to move on, try to recover as soon as possible and be ready again.\" &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/COYS?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#COYS&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/SpursOfficial/status/1125005055189499904?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;May 5, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><p>Tottenham will definitely have an attacking approach and try to press high from the start of the match to overturn the 1 goal deficit. Ajax have a brilliant squad, creative, fast, they move the ball very well and can easily find the back of the net against Tottenham who will offer many spaces in their defense. Spurs lacked precision and pace in the 1st leg but with Son back in the starting XI they will be more aggressive and create more chances. We expect another Ajax win as the hosts are deadly on the break and they will have many opportunities to recover their ball in their territory and with strike on the break. We also expect a high-scoring affair with at least 3 goals on the scoreboard. Ajax are priced at 2.15 with Bet365 and we will back them with half-unit, but our main bet is coming from the “goals market”.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Over 2.5 goals in the game at 1.72 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p>
