Liverpool take on Ajax this week

The UEFA Champions League is back in action with another round of matches this week as Liverpool take on Ajax on Tuesday, 13 September. Both teams have endured contrasting starts to the campaign and will want to win this game.

Ajax are currently at the top of the Eredivisie standings and have a flawless record so far this season. The Dutch outfit thrashed Heerenveen by a 5-0 scoreline over the weekend and will be confident ahead of this fixture.

Liverpool, on the other hand, are in seventh place in the league table at the moment and have failed to meet expectations so far this season. The Merseyside giants suffered a shock 4-1 defeat at the hands of Napoli on matchday one and will need to bounce back this week.

Liverpool vs Ajax Head-to-Head

The previous meeting between the two teams took place in 2020 and ended in a 1-0 victory for Liverpool. Ajax gave a good account of themselves on the day and will look to prove their mettle this week.

Liverpool have been shockingly poor this season and were defensively exposed against Napoli last week. Jurgen Klopp has his work cut out for him this season and faces a formidable opponent on Tuesday.

Ajax can pack a punch on their day and are in excellent form going into this game. Both teams are evenly matched at the moment and could play out a draw in this fixture.
