It’s gameweek 5 in the UEFA Champions League, and top European teams would face each and battle it out to win the prestigious trophy. This time it’s an important match for Ajax as they’ll host the Premier League giants Liverpool at Johann Cruyff Arena in a match which is a must-win game for the Dutch side.
Both teams are in the greatest of form as in their last match Klopp’s side lost to 20th-place side Nottingham Forest and Ajax were demolished by Napoli 4-2 in Naples. Hence, this is a game which is very unpredictable and it can certainly go either way.
Now, Liverpool do know that they’ll only need a point to qualify for the knockout stages which means a draw would be fine for them but they’ll be aiming to finish at the top of the group and so they’ll be looking to win both of their remaining matches.
However, the sensational crowd support that Ajax will be getting and with Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz out due to injuries might make this match difficult for Klopp.

Predictions Ajax vs Liverpool: 1-4
Despite scoring in each of their past four Champions League games, Ajax has also dropped their last three. Liverpool has, however, also had defensive weaknesses.
Goals won’t likely be in high demand as a result. Even if the visitors are missing some important personnel, they still have the quality to compete. Therefore, the strongest offensive team will prevail in this match, and Liverpool will do so by a narrow margin.
