Ajax and Liverpool kick off the new Champions League season with a face-to-face showdown in Amsterdam on 21 October 2020. Should I wait for goals scored in this fight? – our forecast will give the answer.
Ajax made it to the group round of the Champions League as the Dutch champion. The last Major League draw was interrupted ahead of schedule, and the team from Amsterdam was ahead of Alkmaar in the fight for the championship only by additional indicators.
Erik ten Haga’s charges started a new rally of the domestic championship relatively successfully. They have included victories over Sparta (1: 0), “Waalwijk” (3: 0), “Vitesse” (2: 1) and “Heerenveen” (5: 1) in the last round. The only misfire was in the away match against Groningen (0: 1).
Liverpool stepped down as Champions League winner last season, when Jurgen Klopp’s side lost to Atlético in the round of 16 on aggregate.
In return, the Reds have pleased their fans with the long-awaited Premier League title, which Anfield has been waiting for for over thirty years. In the new season of the English championship, Liverpool are not playing consistently. That only is a crushing defeat to Aston Villa (2: 7) and a missed victory over Everton in the derby (2: 2).
Liverpool have scored at least four goals in their last three away games
Ajax have scored eight goals in their last three home games
Bet on TB3.5 played in four of Liverpool’s last five games
Ajax are showing productive attacking play in the new season. In five matches of the Netherlands championship, the hosts have hammered eleven goals.
Liverpool have lost their main defender van Dyck , and the overall play of the Reds in defense now raises a lot of questions. But with the attack, Jurgen Klopp’s team is still in full order. In our opinion, the match in Amsterdam will be productive.
Our prediction is the total over 3.5 goals for 1.90 at the Winline bookmaker .
