Ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s match against Ajax in the UEFA Champions League, Ex Manchester United forward, Dimitar Berbatov, has predicted the outcome of the match.
English Premier League side, Tottenham qualified for the semi-final after defeating Manchester City in the quarter-final of the competition.
Ajax defeated Italian giant, Juventus to qualify for the semi-final of the Champions League.
Berbatov in his reaction stated that the game between Tottenham and Ajax is a 50/50 chance.
“Ajax is a great opportunity [for Spurs] but this is what Real Madrid and Juventus thought. I think the game is pretty even, it’s 50/50.”
“They play very similar football. Spurs from Ajax have Vertonghen, Eriksen, Alderweireld, Sanchez….I see the connection. I think it shows.”
“Ajax have great players again now in De Ligt, De Jong and Tadic, who was at Southampton and now he’s destroying Real Madrid it’s crazy.”
“They play with no pressure up until this point but maybe now they will start thinking about the final.”
“I was in the same position with Bayer Leverkusen in 2002 against Manchester United. We were in the semi-finals, we knew if we beat them we’re in the final of Champions League. Then you start thinking….wow we’re near the final of the Champions League… what are we doing here?”
The kick-off time for the match is 8 pm.
