Ajax v Liverpool betting preview  

Ajax come into the clash in decent form after winning four of their five games so far in the Dutch Eredivisie and currently sit second in the table. They come into this clash off the back of a 5-1 thrashing over Heerenveen. Erik Ten Hag's men impressed in the elite competition two seasons ago, with the team making it to the semis, but they suffered elimination in the group stages last time out. Betfred are pricing them 19/5 to start this campaign with a win (or 33/1 with 888sport)

The hosts wlecome Quincy Promes and Antony back into the side, after the duo was rested last time out. 20-year-old Mohammed Kudus has made a stunning start to life at Ajax and will start as number ten. Dusan Tadic and David Neres should complete the front-line, with Zakaria Labyad providing a further option. Daley Blind and Perr Schuurs will start as cneter backs, with Nicolas Tagliafico and Noussair Mazraoui as full backs.

Liverpool started the season in stayle, recording victories over Leeds, Chelsea and Arsenal, but a 7-2 thrashing at Aston Villa brought them back down to earth. They were held 2-2 by Everton in last Saturday's Merseyside derby and currently trail the Toffees in the domestic standings by 3 points. Jurgen Klopp's men have already conceded 16 goals in eight games across all competitions and could struggle at the Johan Cruyff Arena. The away victory is backable 8/11 with VBet (or 8/1 with 888sport).

Virgil Van Dijk could miss the remainder of the season with an ACL injury. Goalkeeper Alisson is also out of contention while Thiago Alcantara will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. Fabinho may be forced into a makeshift centre-back role if Matip does not recover while Naby Keita is expected to feature from the off in a three man midfield alongside Jordan Henderson and Georgino Wijnaldum.

Probable Line-Ups

Ajax (4-3-3): Onana; Mazraoui, Schuurs, Blind, Tagliafico; Klaassen, Kudus, Promes; Neres, Tadic, Antony

Liverpool (4-3-3): Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Gomez, Robertson; Keita, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
