Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris acknowledged on Tuesday that his team is not the favorite to overcome the semifinals of the Champions League and that “Ajax has a slight advantage” thanks to the 0-1 obtained by the Amsterdam team in the Going match .
“The only way to overcome the draw is to win the game on Wednesday and we have prepared for that, as we always do,” said the goalkeeper at the press conference before the game.
“We need to find the right energy and learn from the mistakes we made in the first game,” added the Frenchman, who tried to encourage English fans.
“We are excited to be part of the semifinals of the Champions League, but we do not want to stop here, it’s a great opportunity for the club, we to play with a lot of energy and a lot of desire.”
Lloris said that his people “are still alive” and that “they only think about tomorrow’s game and give the best of themselves”.
Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen, who retired in the first leg after a heavy blow to the head, is expected to play against Ajax, although he should wear a mask to protect his nose.
“I think he has recovered well, he’s back with the team, full of energy and ready to help the team,” said Lloris.
