Liverpool vs Ajax is underway now. Here's how to watch it, including on a live stream from anywhere – even the small town of Ajax. 

Liverpool will be looking to bounce back from a humiliating defeat in Italy last week when they welcome Ajax to Anfield on Tuesday night. We've got all the details on how to watch a Liverpool vs Ajax live stream right here in this Champions League fixture.

Jurgen Klopp's side were beaten 4-1 by Napoli but it could easily have been more, with Alisson saving a Victor Osimhen penalty and Virgil van Dijk clearing off the line in the first half. They still couldn't prevent the home side from going in 3-0 up at half time, though, and conceded again just minutes after the break. The Reds have never lost their opening two games of a Champions League campaign before and they won't want to make history tonight.

Ajax had the opposite experience in Scotland last week, thrashing Rangers 4-0. The Glaswegian side were playing their first Champions League game in 12 years, but goals from Edson Álvarez, Steven Berghuis, Mohammed Kudus and Steven Bergwijn ensured it was an unhappy return to the big stage. Ajax have a 100% winning record in all competitions so far this season, scoring 13 goals in their last three games. Can they keep it up on Merseyside?

Team news is in for both teams and Liverpool have made four changes, with Thiago returning to the starting line-up alongside Joel Matip, Kostas Tsimikas and Diogo Jota.  Ajax have made just one change from their 5-0 win over Heerenveen on Saturday, with Steven Berghuis replacing Davy Klaassen.

We've got all the info on how to live stream Liverpool vs Ajax online from anywhere. And if you're out of the country and can't access your preferred domestic broadcaster, you can always use a VPN to bypass any geo-restrictions (opens in new tab).

How to live stream Liverpool vs Ajax if you're abroad

With most domestic broadcasters locking streaming services to their country, you may hit a wall when it comes to accessing the likes of Paramount Plus or Stan Sport when you're overseas. However, by getting yourself a handy streaming VPN, you can hop on a server within the US or Australia (or anywhere else for that matter depending on where your online content is geo-restricted to), and this will switch your IP address to make it appear as if you're browsing right from the comfort of your own home.

How to use a VPN to unblock any restrictions

If you're outside of your preferred broadcaster's boundaries, you can use a VPN to unblock any geo-restrictions and watch a Liverpool vs Ajax live stream as if you were right at home. Here's our step-by-step guide on how to do just that.

  • VPN - standing for virtual private network - offers security and anonymity as you browse online, using set protocols to encrypt your data and make it unreadable to outsiders.
  • As a part of that, you can also switch your IP address, which identifies your location.
  • Most VPNs offer a list of locations where its servers are based to join. Connecting to them switches your IP to appear as if you're browsing from that country/city. In turn, you can then access content locked to that country.
  • When it comes to finding a VPN, you should make sure you find the best one that's suitable for your chosen device, with VPN providers offering compatibility for a ton of devices, as well as nifty free VPNs.
  • Once you've made the decision for the most suitable VPN for your device and your means for using a VPN, sign-up and install it
  • To live stream Liverpool vs Ajax, all you need to do is select the right server from its list of available servers and connect. You'll then be able to hop over those geo-restrictions, with your broadcaster of choice opening its online gates to you.
  • We also want to ensure your money is well spent, so we would recommend going for a VPN that offers a risk free trial. ExpressVPN is one of many providers that has a 30-day money back guarantee (opens in new tab).
