UEFA Champions League Preview: Liverpool vs Ajax

Diego Jota-Liverpool-Arsenal Match-Premier League

Liverpool and Ajax set to battle it out for the top spot in Group D later this week in the UEFA Champions League

Stadium: Anfield

Key Statistics

Liverpool have failed to win 3 of their last 4 matches in all competitions. 

Ajax have scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 matches in the Champions League.

Ajax have won their last 6 matches in all competitions.


Liverpool host Ajax in the Champions League during the midweek and this should prove to be a tough outing for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Liverpool are plagued with injuries at the moment and most of their first-team stars will be missing in a vital group game.

The Reds were comfortably beaten by Atalanta at Anfield last week and Ajax will certainly fancy their chances as well.

Liverpool Possible Lineup

Alisson; Williams, Matip, Phillips, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Henderson; Mane, Jota, Salah

Unavailable players

The home side will be without three of their first choice defenders in Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Naby Keita, Thiago Alcantara, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner are ruled out in the midfield.


The Dutch outfit have picked up seven points from their four group games so far and they are just two points behind the group leaders Liverpool.

A win here could take them to the top of Group D and it will be interesting to see if the away side can step up and get the job done.

Ajax Possible Lineup

Onana; Mazraoui, Schuurs, Martinez, Klaiber; Klaassen, Labyad, Gravenberch; Antony, Traore, Tadic

Unavailable players

Mohammed Kudus is the only player out injured for the Dutch outfit.
