''Looking to the history of the Champions League, Ajax are better away than at home and it is really hard to call.

"They've had three victories in England, Spain and Italy, they played against the top countries, even against Benfica, nothing was easy for them and they were magnificent.

"To play without Harry Kane is difficult, to play without Kane and Son Heung-min at the same time is even more difficult and next time at least Son is there.

"He is an aggressive player, he's fast, he has transitions and he can hurt people so the game is open,'' Mourinho said on belN Sports.
