Liverpool beat Ajax Amsterdam 1-0 away from home with the
opposite goal that came with the support of luck in their opening
match in the Champions League football, and luck stood beside
the English team at times, but also showed his qualifications to
compete for the title.
Ajax back Nicholas Taliavico put the ball past his team in the
35th minute to give the England champions a winning start in
Group D. Liverpool seemed to be the strongest team on the
field, although Ajax had created many good chances at Johan
Duffy Claassen hit the post and Adrian sent Quincy Promise’s
attempt at close range after Ajax had created several excellent chances.
But Liverpool, who won their sixth European Cup title in 2019,
proved deserving of victory, having possession of the ball for
long periods and launching quick counter-attacks and keeping a
clean sheet despite the absence of prominent defender Virgil van
Dyck, who suffered a serious knee injury on Saturday.
