Ajax odds even worse due to Liverpool

Liverpool did Ajax no favors on Wednesday evening. The team of coach Jürgen Klopp won 1-7 against Rangers FC, requiring Ajax to win against the English team. Tottenham Hotspur was able to take over the leading position in Group D from Sporting Portugal with a victory.
Rangers FC – Liverpool: 1-7Liverpool started the difficult away game at Ibrox with a changed line-up. Virgil van Dijk started with Ibrahim Konaté in the back center. There was also room for Fabio Carvalho, Roberto Firmino and Joe Gomez. Giovanni van Bronckhorst did not change the line-up of the home team. In the seventeenth minute, it was the Scots who got the lead. Scott Arfield got the ball on the edge of sixteen meters and fired the ball behind goalkeeper Alisson Becker. After seven minutes, the Scots‘ lead was over again due to a goal by Firmino. The Brazilian headed into a corner in Kostas Tsimikas.
After the break, Liverpool showed that only one team was entitled to victory on Wednesday evening. In the 55th minute, it was once again the star Firmino who, out of a cross by Gomez, entered the 2-1. Eleven minutes later, it was the other striker Darwin Núñez who ended the game. Firmino was not selfish and gave the Uruguayan the goal. Substitute Mohamed Salah was also allowed to leave his mark on the competition in the final phase. The Egyptian achieved a very good performance by scoring a goal in the 75th, eightieth and 81st minutes, allowing the attacker to write a flawless hat trick within six minutes. Salah made the fastest hat trick ever in the Champions League with this three-hitter. Harvey Elliot accounted for the final hit and set the final score at 1-7.

There was no more scoring in Scotland, making Liverpool more firmly in Group A of the Champions League. Due to the victory of the English team, Ajax must win against Liverpool in-house to be able to spend the winter in the billion-dollar ball. Should this succeed, the round after that may not win Liverpool or draw against Napoli. On the other hand, Ajax must win against Rangers FC.
Tottenham Hotspur – Eintracht Frankfurt: 3-2With the home team, Antonio Conte had the super duo Harry Kane and Heung Min Son. The two were flanked in the attack by Richarlison. Despite the strong formation, the home team quickly fell behind. Daichi Kamada benefited from an error by Eric Dier and through Sebastian Rode, it was the Japanese who got the ball back and was able to make the opening goal.
After that, it was Tottenham that started to give gas. Six minutes after the opening goal, Son and the equaliser arrived at the direction of his colleague Kane. Eight minutes later, the Englishman was allowed to sign for the lead via a penalty. And 36 minutes later, it was Son again who set the rest position to 3-1. After the break, Brazilian defender Tuta got another yellow card in the 57th minute and 3 minutes later, the man got his second yellow card and was able to take a shower. Faride Alidou did something back for Frankfurt, but Tottenham Hotspur’
s lead held. This allows them to take over the leading position in Group D of the Champions League from Sporting Portugal.
