Former Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Rafael Van Der Vaart has predicted the final teams in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) this season.

The ex-Dutch international made his final prediction while he was on BBC Sports as he predicted a Barcelona-Ajax Champions League final.

He was speaking after both Ajax Amsterdam and Barcelona moved a step closer to landing the big price with respective aggregate victories over Juventus and Manchester United.

Rafael Van Der Vaart is delighted that two teams from the school of Dutch football legend Johann Cryuff are through to the last four of the competition.

Johann Cryuff attained legendary status at both Ajax Amsterdam and Barcelona before his death.

Ajax Amsterdam have been the surprising team of the season in the Champions League following their stunning victories over Real Madrid and Juventus.

Real Madrid fell to Ajax in the last 16 via a 5-3 aggregate defeat before the Dutch Eredivisie giants beat Italian champions Juventus 2-1 away from home on Wednesday night to secure a 3-2 aggregate victory over the Italians.

Barcelona are also in the final four after their dominant win over Manchester United.

The Spanish champions defeated Manchester United 3-0 in the second leg to secure a 4-0 aggregate win over the former English champions.
