Reds fans will need to enjoy the match from their couches in what could be a frustrating night for their side.

Our Top Odds Pick – Ajax to Win – 16/5 at bet365
Ajax boast an impressive Champions League record, losing just four matches in their last two campaigns and they’ll fancy their chances against this Liverpool side.
Klopp’s side are winless in their last three and are conceding an average of over 2 goals a match this season – and that’s been with van Dijk in the side.
Yes, Ajax have lost many of their young stars but that production line of talent they have in Amsterdam is creaking back to life and starting to fill the gaps.
Ajax come into this on the back of a 5-1 spanking of Heerenveen and they’ll be straining at the leash to get at a Reds side that is looking out of sorts.
Our Extra Pick – Over 3.5 match goals – 11/10 at Betfair
This one has goals written all over it with both sides likely to field attacking line-ups.
The loss of van Dijk is a huge blow for this Liverpool defence and against an Ajax front line that’s in scoring form, there should be plenty of chances.
Likewise, Liverpool aren’t short of attacking options themselves and it would be no surprise to see Salah or Mane getting on the scoresheet.
Our Long Shot – Dusan Tadic to score the first goal – 8/1 at bet365
The Serbian seems to be loving life in Amsterdam (who could blame him!) – he’s bagged 57 goals in 64 matches since his move from Southampton.
He’s also in cracking form – he’s helped himself to 3 goals in his last 4 appearances and, at odds of 8/1, he looks overpriced to nab the first goal against Liverpool.
