Liverpool began their 2020-21 Champions League campaign with a 1-0 victory over AFC Ajax in Amsterdam.

The Reds took the lead in the 35th minute at the Johan Cruyff Arena when Nicolas Tagliafico inadvertently diverted a Sadio Mane strike into his own net.

Fabinho was required to produce a stunning goalline clearance to deny Dusan Tadic and keep the advantage intact heading into the break, and Davy Klaassen struck the post just after the restart for the home team.

However, Liverpool crafted several opportunities of their own to further their advantage and got their European season up and running with three points against the 2019 semi-finalists nevertheless.
