Liverpool vs Ajax: Recommended bets
Lassina Traore to score first. The 19-year-old has really burst on to the scene for Ajax this season and is having a strong campaign in front of goal.
Traore has nine goals in all competitions and on Tuesday he will really be looking to make a name for himself by scoring at Anfield.
The forward is 15/2 to score the first goal of the game on Tuesday.
Liverpool vs Ajax: Match preview
Liverpool’s chances of swiftly booking their place in the Champions League knockout stages were quashed by Atalanta last week.
The Reds produced a lacklustre display and were defeated 2-0 by the club from Bergamo.
The defeat means that Jurgen Klopp’s side only lead the group by two points and a defeat on Tuesday could knock them out of the qualifying spots.
However, a win or a draw would still see them reach the last 16 with a game to spare.
Ajax six-game winning streak
Ajax are currently enjoying a strong run of form having won their six games in all competitions.
Erik ten Hag’s side sit top of the Eredivisie and are second in Champions League group D.
They will be hoping that they can take advantage of Liverpool’s unpredictable form and replicate Atalanta’s result from last Wednesday.
Ajax and Atalanta could face off next week in what could effectively be a play-off match for a place in the knockout stages.
With Liverpool due to face bottom side Midtjyylland during the final round of games, even the Reds losing to Ajax would set up a crucial game next week.
