Liverpool vs Ajax
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 1 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Group D is still in an indecisive state, and three of the four teams have a good shot at qualifying for the knockouts. However, over the course of the next two match-days, two of these three squads will make it to the Round of 16, while the other will have to make do with the Europa League.
The Reds are pitted against the Lancers at the Anfield in this upcoming game, and as mentioned, either are smack in the middle of the race for the top-most spot. As such, a win is a must for both these teams.
Should the Reds secure the three points, they could practically lock in the first place, since they are pitted against the dead-last placed Midtjylland in the final game week – and note that the Danish club have a 100% losing record in the competition.
Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag’s men share the same number of points as that of Atalanta, and should the former lose at Anfield, they will in all probability be downgraded to the third spot – since the Italians are locking horns with Midtjylland this game week.
Suffice it to say that a fierce encounter is on the cards, and judging from the phenomenal offense on both sides – expect a goal-fest.

Liverpool vs Ajax: Prediction
Klopp’s men lost 0-2 at home against Atalanta the last game week in the CL. In the meantime, the Lancers recorded a 3-1 at home against Midtjylland.
Going on, Hag’s men are on a six-game winning run, and had scored a total of 38 goals from their preceding eight fixtures. Do also note that they have scored a total of 25 goals from their past five road match-ups.
Going on, the Reds have lost just once at home all through 2020, and have scored two or more goals in 14 of their former 16 appearances here.
Moreover, they were also the champions of this competition a season before, and are the reigning champions of PL. They are getting on the scoresheet somehow.
As such, expect a high-scoring thriller at the Anfield.
