class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With Van Dijk having joined Alisson on the injury list, Al Hain-Cole thinks the Reds will be in for another high-scoring game against ten Hag's men
Liverpool will be desperate for a morale-boosting win when they travel to Amsterdam to take on Ajax in Wednesday’s Champions League clash.
The Reds are at somewhat of a low ebb after following up their disastrous 7-2 defeat against Aston Villa with an unfortunate 2-2 derby draw with Everton that saw Virgil Van Dijk probably ruled out for the season with a knee injury.
Ajax vs Liverpool Latest Odds
Nevertheless, they are still 4/6 (1.67) favourites with bet365 to bounce back by coming out on top at the Johan Cruyff Arena.
Erik ten Hag’s men have lost their last two Champions League matches on home soil but are available at 7/2 (4.50) to pull off a big win against the 2019 champions.
None of the guests’ last 15 away matches in this competition have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 10/3 (4.33) on them claiming a single point here.
Ajax vs Liverpool Team News
Club record signing Antony has been ruled out of contention in a major blow for the hosts, with no reason given for his absence.
Joel Matip and Thiago Alcantara are likely to join Van Dijk on the sidelines after picking up minor injuries against Everton, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kostas Tsimikas and Alisson also unavailable.
Ajax vs Liverpool Preview
While a Champions League opener is always significant, there is extra pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s team as they begin life without their influential centre back.
With Alisson and Matip also ruled out, it is hard to see them holding out at the back against a free-scoring Ajax team that has hit 10 goals in three home games so far this campaign.
Nevertheless, they can at least partly compensate for any defensive frailties with a prolific frontline that has scored 20 times in seven fixtures so far this campaign.
Ajax vs Liverpool Tips and Predictions
All in all, odds of 10/11 (1.91) surely offer solid value on Liverpool ensuring over 3.5 goals for their sixth game in eight this season with an exciting performance against Ajax.
