This is a clash between two teams with a combined 11 UEFA Champions League title, as Ajax will be welcoming 2018 winners Liverpool to the Johan Cruyff Arena on Wednesday night.
There have been only 2 meetings between these two teams in the Champions League, with Ajax winning one and the other game ending in a draw. Liverpool have not defeated the Dutch.
Ajax club-record signing Antony has been ruled out of this game in a major blow for the home side. Liverpool, on the other hand, will be without Virgil van Dijk, who is set to miss the remainder of the season Thiago and Joel Matip are major doubt for this clash. Goalkeeper Alisson is also sidelined for this clash.
Ajax have almost all their key players at their disposal, while Liverpool have a major injury crisis, but the Reds have their front 3, and that is always important for the Anfield landlords. This will be a close encounter.
