A wonderful European clash for Ajax on Tuesday evening in the Champions League. On the other side of the Canal, the team from Amsterdam will meet Liverpool. “We are playing against the best opponent in this group.”
“We really want to play our own game,” said Alfred Schreuder at the press conference about the meeting against Liverpool. “We have another team meeting later, but we are not going to change anything.”
Liverpool are not doing well this season. In the league we find Jürgen Klopp’s team in seventh place. And the start in the Champions League was very bad with a 4-1 defeat against Napoli. Yet Schreuder does not want to hear about underestimation. “I expect it to storm tomorrow.” Last week Ajax won very convincingly with 4-0 against Rangers FC.
In that respect Ajax will compete against the The Reds, given that the Amsterdammers themselves are in excellent shape. The Ajax players swept sc Heerenveen off the mat last weekend with a 5-0 victory.

Dusan Tadic sat next to Schreuder at the press conference. And where Ajax is doing excellent, the captain is in a lesser phase. Since the arrival of Steven Bergwijn, Tadic has moved to the right side. And the Serb has to get used to that visibly. “Sometimes you play less, sometimes better. Now after three games I have more feeling for this position.” Last weekend against Heerenveen, Tadic gave three assists
Schreuder did not reveal anything about the line-up. The big question is who is at the forefront of the national champion. In the past two matches, the Ajax coach opted for Mohammed Kudus, but those weeks before Brian Brobbey was on the edge of the attack.
Liverpool – Ajax starts tomorrow evening at 9 p.m.
