Liverpool get us underway, anyway.
SUB! Promes does come on for the young forward, and Ajax are back to their full complement.
Adrian takes his time over a clearance and it bounces out for a throw-in and shortly after a corner…
Gravenberch is given too much space to shoot from the edge of the box when found by Tagliafico and fires a low effort just past the near post.
Tadic waits for Promes’ run ahead of him as Ajax bring the ball forward, but Fabinho positions cuts off the ball into him the moment it reaches him.
GOAL! AJAX 0-1 LIVERPOOL (Tagliafico OG 35)
Lisandro Martínez tries a through ball, but Quincy Promes is caught offside.
