Ajax and Liverpool kick off their UEFA Champions League Group D campaign when they clash at the Johan Cruyff Arena on Wednesday. Liverpool are without a win in their last three games, but will the return to UCL action see the Reds end that run?

Ajax Form


Ajax have won four of their opening five games of the Dutch Eredivisie season, including a 5-1 hammering of Heerenveen on Sunday. A first-half double from Dusan Tadic set Ajax on their way to a comfortable victory.

Erik Ten Hag's side had started with three straight wins over Sparta Rotterdam (1-0) away from home, and at home against Waalwijk (3-0) and Vitesse (2-1).

They suffered a surprising 1-0 defeat against Groningen before the international break, but bounced back in style at the weekend against Heerenveen.

Ajax Team News


Ajax have a fully fit squad to choose from. Tadic and young Brazilian forward Anthony have three goals each this season and will be the chief threat. 

Anthony could come back into the starting line-up after scoring from the bench against Heerenveen.

Liverpool Form


After starting the defence of their Premier League title with three straight wins over Leeds United in a 4-3 thriller, Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge and Arsenal 3-1 at home, Liverpool have some questions to answer.

Jurgen Klopp's men exited the Carabao Cup on penalities after a 0-0 draw with Arsenal. They then suffered an embarrassing 7-2 Premier League defeat to Aston Villa prior to the international break.

The Reds will feel aggreived not to have taken all three points from the Merseyside derby against Everton which ended 2-2. Jordan Henderson thought he had scored the winner in injury time, only for a marginal VAR call resulting in the goal being ruled out.

Liverpool Team News


Liverpool could be boosted by the early return of goalkeeper Alisson. Deputy Adrian has conceded nine goals in the last two games. 

Virgil Van Dijk is out after suffering an ACL injury against Everton, and joins Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlin and Naby Keita in missing the game. Thiago Alcantara is a doubt after picking up a knock.

Ajax vs Liverpool Head to Head


Ajax and Liverpool last met in the European Cup back in 1966. Ajax won 5-1 in Amsterdam before a 2-2 draw at Anfield in the second leg.

Ajax vs Liverpool Odds


Liverpool are odds-on favourites at 1.70 with Ajax 4.75 outsiders to win at home. A draw is priced at 4.00.

Verdict

Liverpool have leaked goals without goalkeeper Alisson and the Reds have lost defensive rock Virgil Van Dijk. As a result, focusing on goals is the best bet in a game that Ajax could take something from.
