Liverpool vs Ajax Prediction: Odds

Liverpool vs Ajax Prediction: Predicted Lineup

Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson;  Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson;  Fabinho, Elliott, Arthur; Diaz, Firmino, Salah

Ajax (4-3-3): Pasveer; Rensch, Timber, Bassey, Blind; Berghuis, Alvarez, Taylor; Tadic, Kudus, Bergwijn

Liverpool vs Ajax Prediction: Tactical Analysis

  • When Liverpool FC attack, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson play slightly higher up the field in the 4-3-3 formation. It’s because they are now playing like a traditional winger, which is an inverted full-back.
  • Trent’s role as an inverted right back assists Mo Salah in most attacks. To move the ball into an attack, inverted full-backs play in a triangle with the midfielder and winger. In the inverted left back role, Robertson plays closely with Luis Diaz to attack from the left flank.
  • Throughout the season, Schreuder has varied his tactics and formations, mostly operating in either a 3-5-2 or 4-3-3 formation. It’s clear Schreuder prefers a midfield three, which is ideal for him at Ajax FC. As well as switching formations according to the game, the Dutch manager rotates personnel and uses players in various positions in order to demonstrate his flexibility.  
  • Typically, wingbacks go as wide as the touchline, which makes it easier to play through the center of the field. Adding to the effectiveness of this approach, the two outside center-halves spread wide to stretch the field even further, and the defensive midfielder drops in at the top of the build-up diamond.  

Liverpool vs Ajax Prediction: Final Analysis and Prediction

This game is expected to be a thriller with two quality teams going against each other. Liverpool has been hot and cold this season and Klopp’s side would be under pressure, especially after a drubbing against Napoli and a threat of potential exit in group’s stage.

Conversely, Ajax has played some outstanding football up to this point. Schreuder’s side has only conceded 3 goals this season and has scored 20 goals. they must be confident about their chances against Under-fired Liverpool side.

Prediction:

Both teams have the potential to beat each other. Liverpool is missing some key players and the form of Mohammad Salah has been a worry for them after the departure of Sadio Mane. Defensively too they have looked out of sorts. Conversely, Netherland’s champion has decimated every opponent so far and can be a threat to low-on confidence Liverpool attack. We are going for Underdogs- Ajax to win.
