Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur - UEFA Champions League Quarter Final: Second Leg

The semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League kickstart with the battle of the giant-killers as Tottenham Hotspur host Ajax in their new stadium tomorrow.

The hosts were handed a tough group, being drawn alongside Inter Milan and Barcelona, but they progressed to the round of 16 as the runners-up. The knockout stages then saw Spurs beating Borussia Dortmund comfortably before they made a huge statement by defeating Manchester City in what was one of the greatest Champions League knockout matches of all time.

Meanwhile, the dark horses of the competition, Ajax, have shown promise right from the beginning of the competition, finishing unbeaten - albeit in second place - in a group containing Bayern Munich.

The R16 witnessed the young side eliminate the defending champions Real Madrid. They then got the better of the man who had taken Real Madrid to their last 3 Champions League victories, Cristiano Ronaldo.
