Ajax Better Away – Liverpool Legend Expects Tottenham vs Reds In Final


Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson believes that Tottenham Hotspur will provide the opposition for the Reds in the Champions League final, with their semi-final opponents Ajax better away from home.

Tottenham shift their focus back to the Champions League this evening, when they lock horns with Ajax in the second leg of the semi-finals at the Johan Cruyff Arena to decide who will meet Liverpool in the final.


Mauricio Pochettino’s men conceded an away goal during the first leg at home last week as they lost 1-0 and will have to shake off the disappointment of their defeat to Bournemouth on Saturday, if they want to progress to the final.

And ahead of what promises to be a riveting clash, Lawrenson feels Tottenham can still get the better of Ajax and ensure their place in the final against Liverpool.


He believes that Ajax are better away from home than at home, meaning Tottenham can do enough to set up an all-Premier League final.

“I quite fancy Tottenham [to play Liverpool in the final], even with all their travails at the moment”, Lawrenson said on LFC TV after Liverpool beat Barcelona 4-0.

“I think Ajax are much better away from home, I really do, and they had a big cup final on Sunday.


Something about me tells me that Tottenham are going to get through. 

"No great logic [behind the prediction], I’m going for gut [feeling].”

Spurs will be boosted by the return of Heung-Min Son, who is back from the suspension served during the first leg of the tie, for the trip to face Ajax in Amsterdam.

Liverpool will now keenly watch the clash in Holland to find out their opponents.
