Liverpool travel to face Ajax in the Champions League live on TV this week

Liverpool Champions League

This week’s Champions League fixtures boast a glamour tie steeped in European pedigree as Ajax welcome Liverpool to the Netherlands.


The Dutch side are in fine fettle at the moment and will welcome a battered and bruised Liverpool to Amsterdam following a 5-1 drubbing of Heerenveen at the weekend.

Liverpool will still be smarting from a brutal Merseyside derby that ultimately ended all square following some rather controversial officiating.

The crushing absence of Virgil van Dijk will certainly take some getting used to for the Reds and Ajax will smell an opportunity in his absence.

Liverpool can still call on their terrifying trio at the front though, and will be confident of getting a result at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

Ajax v Liverpool team news

Ajax: Erik ten Hag has a fully fit squad to call upon for Wednesday night’s clash with no known injury worries to report.

Young stars Ryan Gravenberch and Mohammed Kudus have made promising starts to their Ajax careers and will be hoping to replicate their domestic form on the biggest stage.

Liverpool: The news that star defender Van Dijk requires knee surgery on a nasty ligament injury will come as a devastating blow to Jurgen Klopp.

Thiago Alcantara will undergo further assessments after he was on the receiving end of an awful challenge while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alisson remain unavailable. Naby Keita, however, has returned to training after self-isolating with coronavirus.

Our prediction: Ajax v Liverpool

Liverpool, bereft of their titanic defensive general, may not look quite the beast they usually would.

Ajax will certainly smell blood in the water but, even without Van Dijk marshalling the opposing defence, will have to be at their absolute best to get the better of a side that still possesses a host of world class talent.

It promises to be a tight affair but the English side should have just about enough to take all three points.

Our prediction: Ajax 1-2 Liverpool
