It’s the gameweek 2 o the new Champions League season and two of the giants team in Europe are facing each other as it’s Liverpool FC vs AFC Ajax. Last season both of these teams were the favourites to win the competitor but this season the English team has had an absolute shock start to the campaign. In the last match of the UCL, Napoli destroyed Klopp’s side 4 goals to 1 and that will surely be a memorable game in their history. So definitely the Premier League side has had a lot of problems and mainly that is due to injuries and a poor summer transfer window as Jurgen considers his squad wasn’t improved. However now that, they did not play on the weekend due to the games postponed so they have perfect opportunity to their season around and win against a big team like Ajax at Anfield.
It gos without saying that facing Ajax would be a tough game cause in their last UCL match, they smashed 4-0 against Celtic who also are a British opposition and in the Dutch League they won their recent game 5-0. So they are absolutely in sensational form as they have scored 9 goals in their last 2 games and have conceded 0 goals. Even though they have lost key players like Antony and Lisandro Martinez, new manager Alfred Schreduer has done a fantastic job. All in all it would be interesting match as both the teams would battle it out for a win.
