LIVERPOOL will be eager to put the Nottingham Forest nightmare to bed by securing Champions League last-16 qualification against Ajax.
The Reds were stunned by Forest at the City Ground on Saturday courtesy of Taiwo Awoniyi's 55th minute strike.
And it meant that Jurgen Klopp's men have already lost one more match than they did in their ENTIRE 2021/22 Premier League campaign.
However, Liverpool have a huge opportunity to bounce back as three points against the Dutch giants would seal their spot in the knock-out rounds.
But Ajax go into this match with confidence having thrashed their Eredivisie opponents RKC Waalwijk 4-1 on the weekend.
