Tottenham v Ajax:Champions League semi-final match preview

Donny van de Beek scored a brilliant Ajax goal to put the visitors in front at Tottenham in their Champions League semi-final first leg.

The forward ghosted into space in the Spurs box before receiving a pass with his back to goal, spinning around and calmly finishing past a stranded Hugo Lloris.

The goal had to be checked by VAR for a tight offside call, but it was confirmed.

Tottenham started sluggishly and it was not against the run of play, as the hosts struggled to get to grips with the game in the first half.

Take a look at the video above.
