Ajax v Napoli live stream and match preview

Looking for an Ajax vs Napoli live stream? We've got you covered. 

Ajax will look to respond to a narrow loss to Liverpool on matchday two when they welcome group leaders Napoli to the Amsterdam ArenA on Tuesday night. 

The Dutch side comfortably dispatched Rangers 4-0 in the opening round of Champions League fixtures, but succumbed to a 2-1 loss at Anfield to leave them sitting third in the group on head-to-head.

Ajax are also second in the Eredivisie, a point behind AZ Alkmaar who beat them before the international break. Ajax then failed to respond in the league when they returned to action last weekend with a draw against Go Ahead Eagles. 

They will be hoping for a better twist of fate against Napoli, though, who are currently looking imperious in both Europe and in Serie A. 

Napoli are currently unbeaten at the top of Serie A with six wins and two draws, beating champions AC Milan before the international break to truly announce their credentials as title challengers. They have also won both of their opening Champions League fixtures, running riot against Liverpool on matchday one, beating the English team 4-1 in Naples. 

They then followed that result up with a comfortable 3-0 victory against Rangers, and will expect to take all three points home with them from the Netherlands.

Napoli are expected to be without Victor Osimhen and forward player Gianluca Gaetano for the clash against Ajax, while the hosts won't have Ahmetcan Kaplan, Jorge Sanchez or Mohamed Ihattaren at their disposal.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Champions League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Champions League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
