The Entire Eredivisie Match day postponed for Ajax Champion League semi final

Ajax will have a weekend to prepare for their Champions League semi-final first leg against Tottenham after the Dutch Football Association (KNVB) decided to postpone the Eredivisie fixtures.

The Ajax side are through to the last four champion league for the first time since 1996 after their dramatic 2-1 quarter-final second leg victory against Juventus on Tuesday.

Ajax were due to take on De Graafschap in the league 48 hours before their trip to Tottenham on Sunday, April 28.

That provides a problem for the KNVB, who say Eredivisie sides have to have at least two full days rest between games.

As a result, the authorities have now taken the decision to move the entire round of fixtures to Wednesday, May 15 – making them the final round of matches in the regular season.

The benefit of the fixture change means Ajax will have six days’ rest before the Tottenham game. Mauricio Pochettino’s side meanwhile will have just two days rest as they take on West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday
