4 Players Who Can Silence Ajax and Resurrect Liverpool Champions League, Liverpool host Ajax Amsterdam in the second match of Group A of the 2022/2023 Champions League at Anfield,
Wednesday (14/9/2022) early morning WIB. The Reds are challenged to be able to rise from adversity against a Dutch club who started their career in the Champions League well.
Ajax are believed to come to Anfield with high confidence after a 4-0 win over Rangers on the first matchday of Champions League Group A.
Meanwhile, Liverpool actually lost 1-4 in their visit to Napoli headquarters.
The Reds are certainly targeting three points to open up the opportunity to qualify for the group phase. Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp, wants his team to get up after getting bad results in Naples.
“We have to show a reaction, we know that,” said Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool is still not strengthened by several important players, such as Andy Robertson, Jordan Henderson, Ibrahima Konate, to Naby Keita.
However, the Reds are predicted to depend on several other key players.
Here are some key players for Liverpool ahead of facing Ajax on the second matchday of the 2022/2023 Champions League:
Liverpool’s forward Mohamed Salah takes part in a training session ahead of the Champions League match against Ajax Amsterdam, at the AXA Training Center, north of Liverpool on September 12, 2022.

Overall, Mohamed Salah has not found his best performance. Salah will be motivated to ‘explode’ and end his longest drought of seven goals in the Champions League.
However, the Egyptian player remains a mainstay for Jurgen Klopp’s squad. Considering he is Liverpool ‘s all-time top scorer in the Champions League with 34 goals.
With his motivation to end his goal drought, Daley Blind must be aware of the sharpness and movement of the player who has played for Chelsea.Darwin Nunez
Liverpool ‘s second key player came from the figure of Darwin Nunez. Last season, the Uruguayan striker had a sweet memory when he met Ajax.
While defending Benfica, Nunez successfully kicked The Amsterdammers through his goal in the second leg of the Champions League last 16. Of course, Jurgen Klopp hopes Nunez’s luck will be contagious in this match.
Nunez is predicted to be under tight control from tough defender Jurrien Timber. If he manages to improve his performance and sharpness, it is not impossible for Nunez to easily pass this obstacle from the Dutch national team defender.
Roberto Firmino seems to be prepared by Jurgen Klopp to appear from the bench. However, make no mistake, Firmino’s role can be key.
When Darwin Nunez was absent, the Brazilian made a huge impact on Liverpool . Firmino has made seven games, scoring three goals and providing three assists in all competitions.
The advantage of Firmino’s attribute is his mobility. He can be in the most forward position and between the opposing centre-backs. However, the 30-year-old can also help defence.
Jurgen Klopp will still rely on Luis Diaz to fill the winger post . Diaz became the only Reds player to score against Napoli on the first matchday last week.
Diaz is a winger who has speed, capable dribbling, and above average agility. The type of player Liverpool need to be able to change the course of the game.
This season, the Colombian has made eight appearances in all competitions with a collection of four goals.
Munich – Bayern Munich and Barcelona will clash in the second match of Group C of the Champions League at the Allianz Arena, Wednesday (14/9/2022) early morning WIB. A number of players are predicted to score in this duel.
Both teams started the Champions League this season with positive results. Die Bayern stole full points at Inter Milan’s headquarters with a score of 2-0.
Meanwhile , Barcelona succeeded in shaving the representatives of the Czech Republic, Viktoria Plzen 5-1 at the Camp Nou. It is clear that the battle between the two teams this time is predicted to be exciting.
Of course, the Bavarians also want to maintain hegemony over the Catalunya team. Previously, Bayern Munich was so superior by recording four consecutive wins when they met Barcelona.
The meeting of the two teams this time is predicted to be tough because each team is in the best condition. Here are some players who are predicted to score in the Bayern Munich versus Barcelona match .
Sadio Mane was bought to occupy the position of Robert Lewandowski on the front lines of Bayern Munich . Mane was brought in for his versatility in the final third, plus his goalscoring ability.
The Senegal national team winger has scored three goals in the Bundesliga in six matches. Although he has not recorded his name on the scoreboard in the Champions League last week, he took part in the process of goals scored by his colleague Leroy Sane.
With the experience and skills he has, of course, the striker post will be his and Mane is ready to terrorize the Barcelona defense through his movements.
Leroy Sane is predicted to be a differentiating actor in the duel against Barcelona. Leroy Sane is on fire and ready to destroy Barcelona’s defense through his agile actions.
Sane has scored two goals and provided one assist for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga in the last six games. Meanwhile, in the Champions League last week, the German winger became man of the match when Bayern defeated Inter Milan 2-0.
Of course, Jules Kunde, who is predicted to fill the Barcelona right-back post, gets a very troublesome opponent in the match this morning.
The spotlight in this match will be on Robert Lewandowski. After a period of one windu defending the banner of Bayern Munich, now Lewandowski has to face his former colleagues in a jersey with Barcelona.
The Polish striker immediately spread his quality with a score of six goals from six appearances in all competitions this season. With a performance like that, Lewandowski is still a real threat to every opponent. Bayern Munich is no exception.
However, currently Lewandowski must carry out his duties as a scorer for Barcelona. Facing a former club should not be an obstacle in fulfilling the responsibility of tearing the opponent’s net.
Ousmane Dembele has been reborn this season. The Frenchman has made six appearances and has scored two goals and provided four assists in all competitions.
After a long time struggling with the treatment table due to injury, Dembele seems to prove that his talents and skills have not run out. Xavi Hernandez, who gave him a core position, was very satisfied with Dembele’s performance.
“There are very few people like him (Dembele) in the world. He is very difficult to fight. I am very satisfied with him for his performance so far,” said the Spanish coach.
In the match against Bayern, his speed to mess up the opponent’s defense will make right-back Benjamin Pavard extra vigilant.
