Tottenham welcome giant-killers Ajax to London for the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final tie this evening.
Both sides have ended long waits to make it to this stage. While the most recent of Ajax’s eight European Cup semifinals came in 1997, Spurs have featured in the competition’s last four only once previously – 57 years ago, in their debut season of European competition.
Ajax have ousted holders Real Madrid and Italian champions Juventus in this season’s knockout rounds, while Spurs have made it to the semi-finals by beating Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City.
The teams have met in only one previous European tie, Spurs winning 6-1 on aggregate in the 1981/82 European Cup Winners’ Cup first round.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 7.00pm with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
BT will also air Liverpool’s visit to Barcelona on Wednesday evening on the same channel.
