Liverpool will continue their struggle in the European Champions League against Ajax Amsterdam. So, what is the preparation of the Marseyside Team ahead of the match?
The match, titled the 5th Matchdays of the European Champions League Group phase, will take place on Wednesday morning WIB tomorrow (02/12) at Anfield.
This is the second meeting between the two teams after they previously faced each other at the Amsterdam Arena on the 2nd matchdays. At that time, Liverpool managed to win by a thin score of 1-0.
However, it can be said that Liverpool’s victory in the match was quite lucky, because the only goal was created due to the suicide of the opposing player. Meanwhile, the host of Ajax, several times threatened the goal of Alisson Becker.
For this reason, Jurgen Klopp also believes that the second meeting at Anfield will also not be easy for the two teams.
“Yes, why don’t I expect a tough match? Ajax Amsterdam are a very good team and since the game against us we have been very successful in the league,”
“Big results, obviously at the top of the table, very talented, some players coming back – this kind of thing. Yes, I was expecting a tough match,” Klopp exclaimed on Liverpool’s official website.
Actually, Liverpool’s current situation is quite sad, some of their players have to step aside due to injuries and because they are infected with the Corona virus. For example, Virgil Van Dijk, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and others. No wonder the club’s performance is still not optimal.
The public then thinks that Liverpool in such conditions should focus on just one competition, but Klopp said that his team cannot rule out one of the competitions they play.
“I’ve never made decisions like this – the Premier League and Champions League or whatever – because all competitions for us are very, very, very important,” said Klopp.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are still at the top in the European Champions League Group D standings, while in the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp’s troops are in 2nd place with only a goal difference behind the top, Tottenham Hotspur.
