Ajax's captain and Tottenham's talismanic forward are out to secure their sides a spot in the final and themselves a nomination for Player of the Week

The last UEFA Champions League semi-final is looming large, with Tottenham and Ajax ready to duke it out for the chance to face Liverpool in the final in Madrid.

But who will be crowned the UCL Player of the Week, sponsored by Banco Santander?

Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt has been instrumental for the Dutch side as they bid to add another European cup to their vast trophy cabinet; the talented teen has been imperious in the air, winning on average 3.5 aerial duels per game in this season's UCL.

De Ligt will have to be at his peak to ensure Tottenham's Heung-min Son is kept quiet. The South Korean star has netted four times in his last four UCL matches and has been involved in five goals in total - a personal best.
