That’s as strong as either team could field. Both teams are obviously going with the best they have in what’s the biggest game in years for Ajax and the biggest game in Tottenham’s history. The second leg will be next Wednesday in Amsterdam.
All eyes will be on Tottenham’s attack and how well Llorente and Lucas work together. Llorente is a veteran striker who lacks speed, but he uses his body well to shield and play off to teammates, while Lucas is a speedy, technical player who had a hat trick a couple weeks ago in Premier League play.
