The pressure is on Liverpool to bounce back in the Champions League when they host Ajax in a Group A clash on Tuesday night.

The reds have not began their season as well as expected and they were humiliated 4-1 by Napoli in their opener last week.

Ajax on the other hand were impressive with a convincing 4-0 victory against Scottish side Rangers to top the Group.

Liverpool’s unbeaten run at Anfield now stands at 10 matches in all tournaments since Inter Milan’s inconsequential 1-0 win last term.

Ajax have only lost twice in their last 25 away matches in Europe, although their most recent such loss did come at Anfield courtesy of a 1-0 scoreline in 2020.

Can Liverpool find that missing link and register their first win of the 2022/23 Champions League season?
