Tottenham vs Ajax: Ruthless Spurs will end Dutch side’s fairytale, says Liverpool Champions League hero Didi Hamann

Liverpool’s 2005 Champions League hero Didi Hamann says Tottenham will beat Ajax in the first leg of their semi-final clash to put one foot in their first ever European Cup final.

Spurs host the Dutch outfit at their recently opened new stadium this evening (Tuesday), knowing they come up against one of the surprise packages of the tournament.

Tottenham overcame remarkable odds to reach the Champions League semi-finals

Ajax have shocked everyone to reach the last-four having started their European campaign all the way back in July in the second qualifying round. They made it out of a group which featured Bayern Munich and Benfica, going unbeaten across their six matches, before beating Real Madrid and Juventus in the round of 16 and quarter-finals respectively.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are themselves a surprise package considering they had just one point after their opening three group stage matches, but the quarter-final defeat of Manchester City earlier this month proved Spurs deserve to be in the semi-finals.
