Ajax v Tottenham: the facts for a historic semi-final

Ajax v Tottenham: the facts for a historic semi-final

However Mauricio Pochettino's team are still set for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification after Sunday's results went their way.

Ajax's latest young generation is one game away from reaching the Champions League final but is not getting carried away ahead of what could be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for them.

He says he could not "repeat the miracle" of winning it with Spurs, who face Ajax on Wednesday trailing 1-0 from the semi-final first leg.

"We are living a dream".

17 - Ajax have played 17 games in the Champions League this season, including six in qualifying.

Ajax are bidding to reach their first Champions League semi-final for 23 years and will be favourites after Donny van de Beek's goal in north London last week.

Jan Vertonghen, who began his professional career in Amsterdam before joining Tottenham in 2012, is in line to return too after coming off with a head knock in the first leg.

And like the generation of two decades ago the current team could soon be falling apart - meaning that this season offers the last chance to achieve something big with the club, two years after they lost the Europa League final against Manchester United.

"You don't expect at the beginning of the season to be in this position".

After falling out of favour with Manchester United, Blind made a decision to rejoin Ajax in the summer. "I am very proud and happy to be here during this special period", said Daley Blind, nearly echoing Pochettino's own remarks.

Ajax are now hoping they don't live to regret not scoring a couple of times in London.

"That's how we will step on the pitch, with a 0-0 score in mind".

But Erik ten Hag's Ajax also came under pressure in England.
