Liverpool – Midtjylland
Liverpool hosts Danish side Midtjylland at the Anfield in a match from Group D of the Champions League. The Merseyside giants will try to get their second win in this group. Let’s take a look.
Liverpool started their Champions League season with three points. The Reds visited Ajax in their first game in the group and went home with a difficult, but important 1-0 win. The only goal in the game was scored in the 35th minute when Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico scored himself an own goal.
For Liverpool this is going to be a difficult season without their star defender Virgil van Dijk. The Dutch centre-back will be missing until the end of the season with a very serious knee injury. Right now the manager Jurgen Klopp is using Joe Gomez and Fabinho as his centre-back duo. Most likely they will start against Midtjylland as well.
For Midtjylland this is their first season in the Champions League group stage. We can the Danish team didn’t have the best possible start as they suffered a serious 0-4 defeat against Atalanta in their first game. Nothing really worked for Midtjylland in this game and now they have an even bigger opponent against them.
We can say Midtjylland are probably not really ready for the Champions League. They are the current champions of Denmark, but the levels in this competition are very different. Midtjylland saw it in their first game against Atalanta. Every point they manage to win in this group would be a huge success for them.
That’s our preview for the Champions League fixture between Liverpool and Midtjylland at the Anfield on Tuesday. Second win for the Reds or maybe the Danish team will cause an upset here? We believe we won’t see a surprise here. Liverpool are a team of completely different level and they will show it on the pitch.
