Reason For Ajax vs Liverpool Predictions

  • Ajax lost just four games in their last two Champions League campaigns
  • Liverpool are winless in three matches ahead of their trip to Amsterdam.
  • Liverpool conceded 15 goals in seven competitive games so far this term.
  • The Reds scored at least twice in six of their last seven matches.

Reds reeling after double blow

Liverpool make the short hop to Amsterdam for a Champions League Group D opener against Ajax on Wednesday, though Jurgen Klopp’s Reds will arrive in the Netherlands under a dark cloud following their Merseyside meeting with Everton on Saturday.

The Premier League champs were held by the Toffees in a pulsating 2-2 draw with their neighbours at Goodison Park, though an injury to key defender Virgil van Dijk should prove far more damaging to their prospects to the season than two lost points.

The imposing Dutch centre-half looks set to miss a huge chunk of the campaign, and his absence makes Liverpool’s chances of ending their recent three game winless run considerably slimmer this week.

Ajax tough to beat

Dutch giants Ajax warmed up for their showpiece fixture against Liverpool with a fine performance and 5-1 victory over Heerenveen on Sunday – a triumph that should solidify their confidence ahead of their latest bash at continental success.

Ajax penned one of the Champions League’s most compelling plotlines two seasons ago, when they reached the semi-finals of a competition that Liverpool eventually won, though they were eliminated at the Group Stage last year after they lost several key stars to richer clubs.

Having seen Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong depart in 2019, Ajax also waved goodbye to Hakim Zieych and Donny van de Beek this summer, though a fresh generation of talented young players is already emerging to fill the gaps.

Ajax to take advantage of Liverpool’s uncertainty?

While Ajax’s elimination from the Group Stage of last season’s Champions League was hugely disappointing, it’s worth noting that de Godenzonen were beaten just twice in a six-game sequence that also included wins against Valencia, Lille and a draw versus Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

In total, Ajax were beaten a total of just four times combined in their last two Champions League campaigns, and Erik ten Hag’s side will feel that a favourable set of circumstances could allow them to avoided defeat again on Wednesday.

Having conceded 15 times in seven competitive matches this term, Liverpool’s defending had already looked well below standard before Virgil van Dijk’s injury, and with the Dutch international’s absence leaving a massive hole at the heart of their rearguard, the Reds look even more vulnerable.

With that considered, Ajax look excellent value in the double chance market for Wednesday’s Group D encounter, while our correct score prediction anticipates goals in a potentially exciting 2-2 draw.

Jurgen Klopp’s team scored at least twice in six of their first seven gamest this season, and with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah looking particularly sharp, Liverpool’s final third potency has been helping to paper over the cracks developing at the opposite end.

The Merseysiders notched exactly two goals in each of their last two away assignments, and another brace should allow them to start their 2020/21 Champions League campaign with a useful point in Amsterdam.
