Ajax vs Liverpool prediction and match preview
Eredivisie giants Ajax have made quite a strong start to their domestic campaign and are sitting in 2nd place on the league table with 12 points from four games. The Dutch side suffered their first defeat of the season against Groningen prior to the international break but bounced back with a 5-1 win over Heerenveen at the weekend. Although Ajax have managed only one win in their last six meetings against English teams, the hosts will fancy their chances against a relatively weakened Liverpool side.
On the other hand, Liverpool were involved in a dramatic 2-2 draw against local rivals Everton on Saturday. The Reds are currently in third place on the table with 10 points from five games. Jurgen Klopp's side were crowned champions of Europe in 2018-19 when only an incredible Tottenham Hotspur comeback prevented Ajax from meeting them in the final. Our Ajax vs Liverpool prediction is a 2-2 draw.
Ajax vs Liverpool team news, injuries and suspensions
The hosts have no injury concerns for their clash against Liverpool and will welcome back the likes of Quincy Promes and Brazilian attacker Anthony into the starting line-up after the duo were named on the bench for the weekend game against Heerenveen. Former Southampton star Dusan Tadic is likely to lead the line for Ajax.

Midfielder Thiago Alcantara and goalkeeper Alisson Becker are also sidelined. With Joel Matip also not travelling to Amsterdam with the squad due to an injury, Fabinho is likely to be used at centre-back.
