We have some fantastic games to watch to in the first round of Champions League fixtures this season and we are looking forward to bringing you best Ajax vs Liverpool betting odds. There are several Champions League games taking place on Wednesday the 21st of October but arguably the biggest match of the evening takes place at the Johan Cruyff Arena, Amsterdam between Ajax and Liverpool.
The two clubs combined have tasted success in this competition 10 times, with Liverpool lifting the trophy on 6 occasions while Ajax have won the Champions League 4 times. However, you must go back to 1995 to find the last time Ajax won it and they will be keen to add a 5th Champions League trophy to their cabinet.
Liverpool picked up the trophy in 2018/19 and finished as runners-up in 2017/18, so the current group of players know what it takes to reach the final of the tournament. With Atalanta and Midtjylland completing Group D, there is everything to play for as the teams aim to reach the knockout stages.
Continue below where you will find our Ajax vs Liverpool betting tips and the latest Ajax Amsterdam vs FC Liverpool betting odds.
1. Ajax vs Liverpool Preview
Liverpool were extremely disappointed to exit the 2019/20 Champions League at the Round of 16 stage. Having drawn Atletico Madrid, the defending champions were the favourites to progress to the quarter-final but a goalkeeping error in the second leg at Anfield paved the way for the Spanish club to win the tie and progress at the expense of Liverpool.
Liverpool's recent away record in the competition is inconsistent and they have won 3 and lost 3 of their last 6 Champions League matches on the road. Last season they suffered defeats at both Napoli and Atletico Madrid yet the Ajax - Liverpool betting odds with Bet365 have The Reds as the clear favourites to win this game, priced at 1.66.
The outcome of the game could rest on the fitness of first choice goalkeeper, Alisson. The Brazilian has been suffering with an injury and it seems unlikely he is going to be available for this game. That means Adrian will take his place in goal for Liverpool and he has not always been reliable, especially in this competition.
However, with the attacking trio of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, anything is possible with this Liverpool and that is why they lead the way in most Ajax - Liverpool predictions. Liverpool made some signings during the transfer window. One of the signings is Diogo Jota, who left Wolverhampton to join his new team-mates at Anfield. Jota might be a key player for Liverpool during the Champions League 2020/21 campaign.
2. Ajax vs Liverpool Betting Tips
Last season was a disappointment in Europe for Ajax and they exited the Champions League at the group stage. They finished a point behind Valencia and Chelsea and as a result, Ajax were transferred to the Europa League Round of 32 stage. Things did not improve for them in that competition and the Dutch champions were eliminated by Spanish club Getafe.
Ajax will be hoping for another run in this tournament as they had in 2018/19 when they reached the semi-final. It seemed as though they were going to go all the way to the final but a late goal in the second leg at home against Tottenham Hotspur saw them losing in agonising fashion.
Ajax picked up 3 victories in the group stage of the Champions League last season but only one of them came at home. The majority of Ajax’s points came away from home and they will be hoping to deliver stronger home performances this season, beginning with this game. However, the Ajax Amsterdam vs FC Liverpool predictions have the hosts as the outsiders, priced at 4.5 with Bet365. The draw is also on offer at 4.0.
