See Teams Lists: Son Returns For Spurs’ Search For Another Unlikely UCL Night

Son Heung-min starts for Tottenham Hotspur in Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Ajax in one of two changes made by coach Mauricio Pochettino to the team beaten 1-0 in last week’s first meeting in London.

The South Korean was suspended for the first leg and marked his return to the line-up in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Bournemouth in the Premier League by being sent off.

Moussa Sissoko is the other change from the first leg, with Davinson Sanchez and Fernando Llorente the two players making way as Spurs look to reach the final of the competition for the first time.

The AFP report that Ajax made just one change from the first leg, with coach Erik ten Hag preferring Noussair Mazraoui at right-back to Joel Veltman.

The winners will face Liverpool in the final in Madrid on June 1.
