Spurs Lost 1-0: Can Liverpool take the Upper Hand?

Last night in the Champions League, Spurs were the first English team to get their semi-final campaign underway.

The North-London side played their first big European game last night inside the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Spurs took on a tricky Ajax side who previously put out Real Madrid and Juventus.

Ajax took an early lead with just fifteen minutes gone in the contest gone, scoring through midfielder Donny Van De Beek. The Dutch-side completely dominated the contest in the first half, with Spurs unable to get a foothold in the game.

Spurs struggled to overcome the absence of forwards Harry Kane and Heung Min Son, and their job was made harder after defender Jan Vertonghen suffered a facial injury. Moussa Sissoko provided some hope to his team, who are lucky to only be beaten by the one goal.

Tonight the second English club continues their road to the European final. Liverpool is faced with a tough away trip to Spanish-giants Barcelona, in what is the tie of the round. Every football fan will have their eye on tonight’s huge game!

Liverpool have had an injury scare with striker Roberto Firmino facing a late fitness test. The Brazilian will be a game-time decision after picking up a groin injury prior to their league game at the weekend against Huddersfield.

Barcelona and former Liverpool winger Phillip Coutinho is expected to be preferred to Osmane Dembele, who is still finding his way back to form and fitness.

Who’s attack will be more clinical in the Nou Camp? Can Liverpool take the upper hand in the tie? Check out our prices tonight via Toalsbet.com
