AJA vs LIV Dream11 Prediction: Liverpool will be looking to put the disappointment of losing Virgil van Dijk to a long-term injury behind them when they face Ajax on Wednesday night. Liverpool come off a bruising Merseyside derby which saw them lose Virgil van Dijk to a long-term knee injury but they will be desperate to bounce back here. They make the trip to Amsterdam to face Ajax who have started the season in typical fashion although they did suffer a shock loss to Groningen prior to the international break. They have several new faces this season with the likes of Antony the latest young starlet to emerge from Brazil and they will relish facing this Liverpool defence without Van Dijk and Alisson. Liverpool will of course be confident themselves of scoring and with the team news and the styles of both teams being offensive-minded, goals at both ends is the way forward here. Let’s take a look at AJA vs LIV Dream11 Team prediction now.

Who will win AJA vs LIV Today Match Prediction Football
Liverpool may not be in the best form in terms of results, but there was little wrong with their performance against Everton and if they produce a similar display in Amsterdam then they should win. The big question mark surrounds how they will cope without Van Dijk, particularly against an Ajax attack with plenty of goals in them, but the impact of Liverpool’s other stars certainly should not be ignored amid the loss of their centre-back. We predict a 2-0 win for the Reds in AJA vs LIV today match prediction.
