Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, has lauded Ajax as a proper team ahead of their clash on match-day one. 
 
“I didn’t really think about travelling to be honest, but yeah, Italy, Holland and Denmark are maybe not the furthest [away]," Klopp said. 
 
“That’s OK but we don’t think about the miles we make in the Champions League, we think about the games we play and I think it’s a really strong group. 
 
“Everybody knows how good Ajax was two years ago and they will always build a proper new squad and a proper team. Midtjylland is for different reasons since years one of the most interesting teams because they have quite a specific way.
 
The last meeting between Ajax and Liverpool in a competitive match was on 14 December 1966.
 
The encounter ended in a 2-2 draw in a Champions League match which was played in England.
