  • Nine-man Tottenham lose again as Travers makes his mark

Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde warned his side to learn from their experience in losing to Roma but does not expect a repeat when his side face Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals.

Ajax won the KNVB Beker on Sunday with a 4-0 victory over Willem II and the Eredivisie leaders will be in the hunt for the treble, while Tottenham are looking to end a bad run of form, especially on the road, having lost their last six away from home in the Premier League.

Nathan Ake nodded in a corner in the first minute of stoppage time as Bournemouth finally broke through Tottenham's resistance at Vitality Stadium.

"It's unlucky for us - first of all with Sonny, then with Juan".

If Unai Emery's side miss out on the top four, they'll need to try and win the Europa League. "With nine players, we defended well and played a very good game, but not enough because in the last minute we conceded". "We are a team".

They are going into Wednesday night's second leg at the Johan Cruyff Arena as firm favourites to reach their first Champions League final in over two decades.

The Premier League's second-to-last matchday of the season kicked off on Friday with Everton's win over Burnley, but it was Saturday's slate that has people buzzing.

Arsenal sit on 69 points in fifth place while Tottenham occupy fourth on 70 points.

It won't be a season fondly remembered by Cardiff, with their relegation coming after the tragic death of striker Emiliano Sala, who died in a plane crash en route to Wales before he had even played a game for the club.

Dutch side Ajax have probably one of the best football academies in the world, regularly producing quality players who go on to become world-class superstars.

Dier has been a mainstay of the Tottenham team during Pochettino's five-year reign, but injuries and illness have restricted him to 17 Premier League and just two Champions League starts this season.
