Liverpool hosts Ajax in round 5 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, December 1st at Anfield (Liverpool)
As predicted, Liverpool is leading its Champions League group after four rounds. However, the job has not been done yet, and the Reds may even lose their place in the playoffs because Ajax and Atalanta are only two points behind. Therefore, it is too early to relax. Liverpool could have knocked out one of the rivals if it had beaten Atalanta at Anfield in the last game. Nevertheless, the Reds (after hammering the Goddess with a 0:5 score on the road) managed to lose to the Italians at home (0:2), and the intrigue in this group is still alive.

As you understood from the information above, Ajax has good chances to progress from the group (perhaps even from first place). If there are dreams of the first position, then Liverpool must be beaten in the upcoming match. If not, Amsterdam needs at least a draw, but this is not a suitable option. After all, the main competitor for the second position will play at home with Midtjylland, so it has a good chance of breaking away. In any case, Ajax will have chances to reach the 1/8 finals of the Champions League. In the last round, the Dutch will have a head-to-head match with Atalanta and, accordingly, a chance to get ahead of the Italians.
Yes, these teams have a huge attacking potential, but the bookmakers somehow overestimated the coefficients on an abundance of goals scored. In this UEFA Champions League, Liverpool has mostly shown a cautious game and has not allowed its opponents to do much in the attack. This game has an important tournament value for the Reds, so it is unlikely that they will take a lot of risks. Let us also remind you that the first match between these teams was not rich in goals and ended with Ajax's minimal defeat (0:1).
Prediction for the match: Under 3.5 goals scored
