There were four clubs in the championships in the league championships. Before the start of this season, few people could predict that Tottenham and Ajax would be in the semifinals. But despite the fact that English and Dutch clubs were not considered to be favorites before the competition, they are more than deserved among the four European teams. In Ajax, they had been preparing for a full week for a week, with a completely different story taking place in Tottenham and Mauritius Pochettin, worried about their historical account.
Tottenham and Ajax will hit after more than 38 years tonight. Londoners eventually won both official matches against the Dutch in the Champions Cup in the 1981/82 season. Ajax, who removed the giant Real Madrid and Madrid Juventus, scored the last six games with English rivals only once, most recently in 2012 when he lost Manchester City.
Which club are you joining more opportunities to advance to the Champions League Final?
Tottenham, who has already made the club's biggest success in the qualifying semi-finals of the league, would be the 40th club with such success and the eighth team in the final of Europe's most successful competition. And Londoners, who will perform at their new stadium where they suffered the first defeat on Sunday, will certainly not be easy. The Dutch team, which has an average of 24 years and 257 days and is the second youngest of all 32 teams in the Champions League, is considered a favorite, even though the Dutch team's value is half that of London.
Protectors Mauricia Pochettina they have won the last eight league games in the home team, have succeeded in the last four races, the last three have left a blank network. Tottenham will certainly be in great danger for Tottenham Dušan Tadič, which is exceptional this season. He was involved in nine Ajax goals, scored six times, and gave three runs. It was only successful many times Lionel Messiwho played in Barcelona in 13 matches.
Pochettino: We beat the semifinals because we play as a team
Tottenham is only fighting for the Champions League crown this season, while Ajax is attacking the Dutch champion title in both the championship and the national championship. Ajax has 32 matches at 80 points and the second PSV has the same performance. Tottenham plays a completely different position in the English Championship, 70 points in 36 laps, 21 points in the lead of Manchester City. By the end of the season, London are still a bitter fight for the cities that lead to the Champions League in the upcoming season as well.
"We beat the semifinals because we play as a team. We have problems with the whole season, we've always been hurt, but we still succeed. We believe we can achieve what we want, everything is possible." "We will play for the first time in the Champions League semifinals, we know we are facing a tough game and a tough opponent. We have great respect for the Champions League and Ajax," assures Pochettino.

Pochettino was dissatisfied with the plan of the matches, ten Hag remained
Argentine Chief Tottenham will be able to count on four former Ajax players. Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Davinson Sanchez in Toby Alderweireld they played for the Dutch club, so the game is probably still unique to them. The club from Amsterdam has been preparing for the weekly Champions League draw for the whole week, because the Dutch Eredivisie gave Ajax to the Champions League semi-finals in the 33rd round of the Dutch Championship. The Londoners are wounded in the duel because they had their upper hand on Sunday to accept West Ham (0: 1). In another match schedule, Tottenham's coach, who described the event as unfair, threw away.
"Pochettino feels it's not fair to have more rest. We play in the first Dutch league, where we get ten million euros from TV rights, receive 200 million in the Premier League. What is fair here?" coach Ajax asked the press conference Erik Ten Haag. "It's crazy to be in the semifinals. Nobody predicted that every Dutch team would play in the semifinals at the start of the season. All the footballers are fresh and well prepared and hungry for football." , "Ajax strategist promises." I like it when we play a lot of games, even if we have a rest for us now. We'll see what will be tomorrow, "Ten Hague said.
If Ajax fans give up their hopes for Tadic, the bravest supporters have not yet given up returning Tottenham fans Harry Khanwho has made some easier training in the last few days. "Harry's recovery is fine, he started running, but we can't overtake events. His situation is good now, let's see what's next," says Pochettino, who says Kane won't play in the semifinals.
And if Ajax Ten Hague's strategist has no injury, Tottenham's situation is completely different. Gray Hair Pochettin is primarily caused by invaders. He is punished with a quarterfinal hero Heung Min Son, who three times shook Manchester City in three games. Except for Khan, there are problems with injury Erik Lamela, Serge Aurier and Harry Winks.
The calculation will also be on the stands of the new London stadium and the fans of both teams are still connected. Although it is a club from Amsterdam and London, fans of both teams have much in common. Fans have taken over Jewish identity. Tottenham was founded in 1882 in London, and Ajax 18 years later in Amsterdam, and both teams developed in the immediate vicinity of the Jewish Quarters, so they still have the identity of Jewish fans today. Teams with Judaism over history had no stronger ties, but many customs remained. Fans have repeatedly warned us with Israeli flags, Jewish cries and songs, and today repeatedly warn of the problem of anti-Semitism.
