Ajax vs Tottenham ratings: Tottenham player ratings
Spurs came into the tie without Harry Kane and Harry Winks while Ajax carried a 1-0 advantage after the first leg.
The game did not start well as Matthijs de Ligt opened the scoring after running free from Kieran Trippier in the fifth minute.
Spurs tried to come back with Son Heung-min having a couple of quality chances, but it was the home side that got the second goal.
Hakim Ziyech scored in the 35th minute to make things close to impossible for us. However, this Tottenham side would not lie down.
Lucas Moura scored a quick-fire brace in four minutes after the break and the game was resting on fine margins.
Spurs had their chances, Ajax hit the post and it seemed like we would miss out on the final after an epic try.
There still was some magic left as Moura’s shot somehow went into the net. This was the final kick of the game as Spurs won 3-2 at the Johan Cruyff Arena and fixed a date with Liverpool in Madrid.
There were several heroes on the pitch for Spurs, and we have a real chance of winning the Champions League now.
Tottenham player ratings
Hugo Lloris – 7.5/10
The captain could not do much to stop either goal we conceded, however, he kept us in the game by making some important saves in the second half.
Kieran Trippier – 5/10
Trippier had a first half to forget as he was at fault for both goals we conceded. The Englishman had a better time after the break and was subbed later.
Jan Vertonghen – 7.5/10
Vertonghen’s return to the XI was important and the Belgian played with a mask on. The centre-back had a chance to score, but it came off the crossbar.
Toby Alderweireld – 8/10
The Belgian had to cover space for the second goal we conceded as Trippier lost his bearings, but apart from that, Alderweireld did a great job at the back.
Danny Rose – 7.5/10
The English defender was at his best leading the Spurs comeback. It was his ball that set up the opener for Lucas and was replaced in the final minutes of the game.
Moussa Sissoko – 7.5/10
A typical Sissoko performance. The Frenchman had some driving runs in the game which the Ajax defence could not deal with easily.
Victor Wanyama – 4.5/10
The Kenyan was just not in the game in the first half and was replaced at half-time.
Christian Eriksen – 7/10
This wasn’t Eriksen’s greatest game but the Dane linked with Dele Alli several times. However, neither of them could score on the night.
Dele Alli – 8/10
The Englishman might not have scored in the game but he was busy as a bee for Spurs. Alli had some great moments in the game and should have found the back of the net, but did have a telling role to play in the winner.
Son Heung-min – 7/10
Son’s return was a huge boost for us and he hit the post early on. The South Korean should have scored in the first half and was a threat throughout the evening.
Lucas Moura – 9/10
The Brazilian displayed his speed and finishing for the first goal as he came alive in the second half. Moura pounced on a saved shot from Fernando Llorente to score his second but his third was a neat finish into the corner, while under tremendous pressure.
Fernando Llorente – 6/10
Llorente came off the bench to give us a more of an attacking threat in the second half.
Erik Lamela – NA
Came on late to give us more bite in the attack.
