Ajax will be eager to end their poor record in this season’s Champions League when they welcome Liverpool to the Johan Cruijff ArenA on Wednesday night. In recent years under Erik ten Hag, the Dutch side has made a name for itself across Europe. Not only have they done well domestically, but Ajax have been a force to be reckoned with in Europe too. They defeated some big names in the competition while continuing to play beautiful football. However, it has not been the same since ten Hag left Amsterdam to join Manchester United and was replaced by Alfred Schreuder as their new head coach in the summer.

Even though Ajax are continuing to do well in Eredivisie, they are struggling big time in the Champions League. The Dutch outfit are sitting third in their Champions League group with just three points from four matches. After beating Rangers convincingly in their opening group match, Ajax lost their next three games on the bounce. Infact they conceded a combined total of 10 goals in their last two games against Napoli. On a positive front, they are on a three-match winning streak in Eredivisie and will look to carry that form into the Champions League.

Ajax, however, can take some comfort from Liverpool’s form this season. Jurgen Klopp’s side were expected to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title, however, it has not gone according to the plan for them so far in the league. The Reds are placed eight in the table, with 16 points from 11 games. They are heading into this contest after losing to bottom-placed Nottingham Forest at the weekend. However, in the reverse fixture, Liverpool defeated Ajax 2-1 earlier in the group.
