While Spurs will back themselves to score an away goal, Al Hain-Cole thinks ten Hag's exciting side will ensure the goalmouth action is at both ends

Tottenham will be looking to pull off a famous comeback when they travel to Amsterdam to take on Ajax in Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have it all to do after going down 1-0 in front of their own fans last week, with only one of the last 17 teams to lose the semi-final first leg at home having progressed to the final.

Latest odds

Having won just one of their five away matches in this season’s competition, they are 12/5 (3.40) outsiders with bet365 to turn the tie around by coming out on top at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

The Godenzonen have actually failed to win any of their last three home games in this competition, but are 23/20 (2.15) favourites to book their place in the final with a victory here.

Two of those last three home games have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 14/5 (3.80) on them progressing by settling for another stalemate in this one.

Team news

Carel Eiting is the only injury absentee for the hosts, who rotated the squad for Sunday’s 4-0 KNVB Beker final victory of Willem II.

In contrast, Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela could all be missing for away side, although Son Heung-Min will return to the lineup after missing the first leg due to suspension.

Preview

Son’s return is a huge boost for Spurs, with the South Korea international having scored three of their four goals in the thrilling quarter-final victory over Manchester City.

Considering Erik ten Hag’s team has conceded six goals in the last three Champions League home matches, Tottenham will certainly back themselves to get on target for the 11th successive away game in this competition.

Tips and Predictions

As the only team to score in every match en route to the semi-finals, Ajax are bound to take advantage of any gaps left at the back, making odds of 20/21 (1.95) look appealing on them also finding the net in an exciting game that produces at least three goals.
