Sissoko on the bench for Spurs v Ajax as Llorente starts

Tottenham West Ham

Tottenham tried to force the pace after the break with plenty of possession, but it was Ajax who came close to adding a second when David Neres struck the inside of the post with Lloris beaten.

Hakim Ziyech played Van de Beek through on goal and from just five yards out, the 22-year-old took his time to pick out the corner of the net and give his side a deserved opener and become the third youngest Ajax scorer in a Champions League semi-final.

"He is going to be a major miss for Spurs in that first leg against Ajax".

Christian Eriksen, yet another former Ajax player in Tottenham's ranks, then played in the overlapping Danny Rose but the left back's shot was charged down. We help you discover publicly available material and act as a search engine.

That was the last best chance for either side, with Ajax taking its lead and away goal back to Amsterdam for the second leg.

The other semi-final between Barcelona and Liverpool will be played on Wednesday, with the return happening a week later.

If Pochettino can call upon one of Tottenham's players of the season, it would be a big boost ahead of arguably Spurs' biggest game since 1962.

"There are always different circumstances, we play in the Eredivisie, we get 10million (euros) (£8.6m) from TV and Tottenham, I don't know how much they get".

Although Spurs lost that match, they progress dramatically on the away goals rule, with the platform for their victory laid by the 26-year-old former Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen man, who scored two first-half goals at the Etihad Stadium, having netted the victor in London a week previous.

It all happened in the 33rd minute of the critical first leg of the team's UEFA Champions League match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. Tottenham lost their first game in their new stadium on the weekend as they suffered a 1-0 loss against West Ham in the Premier League.

For Ajax fans, they will remember an upstart attacking midfielder who graduated from their academy and scored 63 goals in 156 appearances for the club, helping them win two Eredivise titles before departing for Hamburg SV in 2008. "Ajax showed more energy".

Ajax were able to find space in midfield and got their deserved goal when Donny van de Beek netted a priceless away goal.

Vertonghen challenged for a header in the Ajax area but slammed his face into the back of teammate Toby Alderweireld's head, leaving him with blood pouring from a cut on his nose in the 32nd minute. "We need to believe we can go there and win the game".

Ajax are in London aiming to continue a remarkable run in this year's Champions League, one which began way back in July when they had to qualify.
