Liverpool blitz beats Ajax 2-1
Ajax are on a high and Liverpool have the ball at their feet, but they have failed to create any real chances in the first half. Liverpool are defending well and Ajax have little to do in the final third. They have one chance to score, but fail to do so, with Steven Bergwijn's header going over the bar. The Dutch side are looking for a quick goal but Liverpool's defence is proving too strong. Liverpool are lining up in a diamond formation with Firmino at the point and Salah and Nunez up front. It is a good formation but the Dutch side are not renowned for playing from set pieces. That means that the Reds will have a little more time to work on their routines and improve their effectiveness. Info : بث مباشر للمباريات

Kolo Toure is sent off for a foul on Ryan Babel

However, they were a different proposition when the hosts were playing Liverpool. In the first half, the visitors dominated the game, with Liverpool looking the more likely to win. Everton were the better team, however, and Luis Suarez's strike was their best. Despite being 2-0 up at the half, Liverpool still had a chance to take the lead. Cesc Fabregas played a great pass to the lanky striker, who was ruled offside on several occasions. A quick counter-attack followed, with Cesc Fabregas finding the lanky striker in space.

Jurgen Klopp says he wants to join Napoli in knockout stages
Jurgen Klopp is looking to make Liverpool's European run more successful than last season. The Liverpool manager has been able to bring back the magic of European nights to Anfield with a series of victories against Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund. He also managed to get the Reds to defeat Roma and Manchester City in April. Klopp has said that Liverpool can achieve something special if they have more players and new impetus. But before that can happen, the Reds must defeat Napoli. Liverpool have already played Napoli twice this season. In their previous meetings, the Reds have won both games. While this does not guarantee them top spot in their group, a win could serve as a reminder to their opponents. A victory would also be vital for their progress in the knockout stages. Liverpool have progressed from groups in five of their previous six campaigns, and Klopp is keen to make that happen again this year. Source : bein live
