How to watch Ajax vs Liverpool - TV channel, live stream, early team news

Liverpool are busy preparing to face Ajax in their next Champions League group match.

The Reds are currently in second place in Group A, and need just to avoid defeat in Amsterdam on Wednesday night to qualify for the knockout stages. Jurgen Klopp’s side have nine points from their opening four fixtures, and claimed a 2-1 win over Ajax in the reverse fixture last month.

Despite being in a strong position in the group, Liverpool go into the game against Ajax on the back of a disappointing defeat to Nottingham Forest in the Premier League at the weekend. It was the fourth defeat in all competitions for the Reds so far this term.
