Liverpool 2-1 Ajax

Published on

Liverpool defeated Ajax 2-1 in the Champions League opener at Anfield thanks to Joel Matip’s late header.

After being humiliated by Napoli last week, Jurgen Klopp’s side appeared to be under even more pressure as Mohammed Kudus cancelled out Mohamed Salah’s opener early on. But Matip rose to head home with minutes remaining to give Liverpool the victory.

European nights at Anfield are usually emotional affairs, but following the death of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday, sentiments ran a little deeper than usual. There is no official Champions League theme song. There was instead a moment of quiet, which was observed perfectly save for the yells of a few vocal supporters.

Liverpool are currently in the second position in the group A table, with Napoli on top with a goal difference of 3.
