Watch: Liverpool 2-1 Ajax Full Match Highlights | Matip late Header Wins it for the Reds
Joel Matip scored an last minute winner to give Liverpool an important Champions League victory over Ajax Amsterdam at Anfield.
Liverpool defeated Ajax 2-1 on Tuesday night at Anfield to earn a significant victory in Group A of the Champions League.
After losing 4-1 to Napoli in Italy the previous week, Jurgen Klopp’s team entered the game under pressure and in need of a victory.
The hosts had the better of the opening stages and rightfully took the lead in the 17th minute when Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota successfully outmuscled the Ajax defence to set up Mohamed Salah, who finished with elegance.
But in the 27th minute, the Eredivisie champions stunned Anfield when they cut through the right side of the Liverpool defence to find Mohammed Kudus in the box, who unleashed an unstoppable shot past Alisson Becker with his left foot.
Joel Matip’s goal off of a corner kick from Kostas Tsimikas in the 89th minute gave Liverpool the victory. Liverpool had a spate of set pieces in the second half that they looked dangerous from.
It was a far better performance from Klopp’s team as they bounced back from last week’s defeat against Napoli in the best possible fashion.
