Liverpool vs Ajax: Prediction
Liverpool suffered an embarrassing loss at Naples on matchday 1. However, it is unlikely they will lose again against Ajax, considering they are at home. With that being said, Liverpool dominating the fixture, looks even more unlikely. Hence, I have backed the visitors with an asian handicap.
The Reds have registered just three clean sheets across all competitive fixtures since May. Their opponents on the other hand have scored an average of 3.5 goals in their last seven games. Hence, expect both sides to get on the scoresheet.
Liverpool vs Ajax: Betting odds
- Asian handicap: +1.50 Ajax @ 1.66 odds
- Both Teams to Score & Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.67 odds.
Predicted starting lineup
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Elliott, Fabinho, Thiago; Jota, Nunez, Diaz
Pasveer; Rensch, Timber, Bassey, Blind; Berghuis, Alvarez, Taylor; Tadic, Kudus, Bergwijn
Alfred Schreuder, Ajax coach: “You have to be good with the ball against these kinds of teams. You need to have guts and courage. Courage is key. If you have that, then you have a chance.”
Jürgen Klopp, Liverpool manager: “I didn’t have to say a lot [about Napoli]. The players know. We brought ourselves to this situation. Everyone wanted to sort it by themselves. No structure. We had four or five days now of absolute truth. Not to knock the players down, just to make sure where we are now; this is the starting point for us to sort the problems together on the pitch.“
