Ajax Preview – Can Ajax contain rampant Reds?

Ajax registered a comprehensive 5-1 home win against Heerenveen in the Dutch Eredivisie on the weekend which became Ajax’s fourth league win in five matches and the hosts will be hoping they can continue this sort of form when they play host to Premier League title-holders, Liverpool, in this opening round of matches in the Champions League.

Victories in the Dutch top flight have seen Ajax off to a good start on the domestic front as they’ve collected maximum points against Sparta Rotterdam, Waalwijk and Vitesse along with the aforementioned win against Heerenveen, but they face a tough opening fixture in this season’s Champions League campaign.

Indeed, a tough Group D also consists of Liverpool, Midtjylland and Atalanta so Ajax know that gaining results at home could prove pivotal if they’re to challenge for a place in the knockout rounds; however, with just three wins out of their last nine ties at home, Ajax may well have their work cut out here.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Liverpool Preview – Can Liverpool shake off recent disappointments?

Uncharacteristically, Liverpool head into this Champions League tie in Amsterdam having failed to win any of their last three matches overall as The Reds have been handed defeats by Arsenal (League Cup) and Aston Villa (Premier League), along with being held by Everton in the merseyside derby on the weekend in a 2-2 draw.

Previously, Liverpool had seemingly been cruising as they’d strung together four wins on the trot with victories over Leeds United, Chelsea and Arsenal in the league along with a 7-2 battering of Lincoln City in the League Cup.

However, we can expect Jurgen Klopp’s men to buckle down to the business at hand here as they look to get their Champions League campaign off and running, and having won five of their last eight ties on the road which includes wins over Bayern Munich, Porto and Tottenham, the visitors shouldn’t be ruled out here.
