Follow for all live updates from the UEFA Champions League fixture between Ajax and Liverpool.
Ajax wins a freekick in Liverpool half. But chooses to keep possession instead of pinging it in. Liverpool tries to counter from it, but again is left wanting by lack of coordination.
Liverpool clueless on the face of a hyper-intense Ajax. Even when it gets a chance to counter, its forwards are not able to get in sync. Meanwhile, Ajax looks comfortable on the ball and is finding it easy to progress play.
Ajax wins the first corner of the game, but it is a comfortable grab for Alisson. Ajax continues the onslaught and Liverpool yet to make Pasveer make work in the Ajax goal, except for a long ball.
Ajax is not letting up on the intensity and Liverpool is facing the heat. The Dutch side will be fancying its chance to convert this dominance into a tangible lead through a goal.
Liverpool is porous at back and Ajax is making the most out of it. Another shot from Berghuis and it was closer to the goal than Alisson would have liked. Tadic shimmies past two and sets Sanchez up, whose shot is a little too easy for Alisson.
Brobbey has been using his physicality to good effect up front for Ajax. Liverpool patient with the ball, passes it around in the backline for a long period.
Ajax needs to win and win big, if it needs to make something out of this group and it shows in the way it has approached this game so far.
Ajax dominating the early stages. The fans are vociferous, the football is electric and Liverpool is under the crunch.
Kickoff and here we go. Liverpool is in its away kit while Ajax is in its trademark white and red home kit. Ajax controls the early proceedings. A beautiful passage of the game and it almost scores!!! Berghuis strikes the post. UFFF!!!
Ajax: Pasveer; Timber, Sanchez, Bassey, Blind; Klaassen, Berghuis, Alvarez; Tadic, Brobbey, Bergwijn
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson; Nunez, Elliott, Firmino; Salah
Ajax needs a win against Liverpool to stay in the Champions League, when the two teams face off at the Johann Cruyff Arena on Wednesday.
With one game remaining, a point would be enough for the Reds to advance to the knockout rounds. However, Jurgen Klopp’s team would be out for a win to boost its chance of unseating Napoli atop Group A.
Ajax appeared to have a good chance of making it to the knockout rounds this season after defeating Rangers 4-0 in their competitive debut, but faced three straight losses then.
Alfred Schreuder’s team, now, must defeat the 2018-19 champions and hope Napoli does the same on the final matchday in order to advance to the next round.
Ajax: Pasveer; Timber, Sanchez Bassey, Blind; Klaassen, Berghuis, Alvarez; Tadic, Kudus, Bergwijn
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Thiago, Henderson; Nunez, Elliott, Firmino; Salah
