Midtjylland vs Liverpool: Recommended bets

Both teams to score. Liverpool have conceded goals in six of their nine away matches in all competitions this season, and the Reds are set to field an inexperienced back line on Wednesday.

Diogo Jota to score. Jota did not start at the weekend, suggesting he’ll be in the starting eleven this time around. Jota has eight goals in his last 10 Liverpool appearances, including one in the reverse fixture in October.

Midtjylland vs Liverpool: Champions League match preview

Midtjylland welcome Liverpool to the MCH Arena on Wednesday night for the final match of Group D.

Liverpool’s win over Ajax last week – coupled with Atalanta dropping points against Midtjylland – ensured that Jurgen Klopp’s side will finish as winners of the group. Curtis Jones scored the only goal of the game in last week’s 1-0 win over Ajax at Anfield. Midtjylland held Atalanta to a 1-1 draw in Italy, with Alexander Scholz opening the scoring for the Norwegian side.

That was Midtjylland’s first point of the campaign and they remain six points behind Ajax in third. Liverpool sit on 12 points, having won four and lost one of their five group games. Ajax host Atalanta in the group’s other fixture to determine who will finish 2nd.

Liverpool were comfortable 2-0 winners when they hosted Midtjylland in October. Diogo Jota gave Liverpool a second-half. Mo Salah sealed the win with a stoppage-time penalty.

Liverpool beat Wolves 4-0 at Anfield on Sunday evening, with goals from Mohamed Salah, Gini Wijnaldum, and Joel Matip. The Reds are tied on 24 points with league leaders Tottenham, but have a worse goal difference.

Midtjylland beat Vejle 2-0 in the Norwegian Superliga on Saturday, with goals from defenders Erik Sviatchenko and Alexander Scholz. The result leaves Midtjylland with a two-point lead at the top of the league table. Brian Priske’s side have only lost one of their last seven matches in all competitions.

Liverpool have never lost a competitive match against Norwegian opposition, winning three and drawing one of their four previous matches – averaging 4 goals per game.

The last time Midtjylland welcomed English opposition to the MCH Arena was in 2016, when they beat Manchester United 2-1.

Midtjylland team news vs Liverpool

Erik Sviatchenko should return to the starting eleven after missing last week’s game against Atalanta through suspension.

Jean Cajuste is likely to miss out once again after testing positive for Covid-19 last month.

Defenders Kristian Dirks Riis and Oliver Olsen are both injured with long-term injuries.

Midfielder Anders Dreyer has scored 3 goals in Europe this season, more than any other Midtjylland player. Pione Sisto is the side’s leading goal scorer domestically, although he had to settle for a place on the bench against Atalanta.

Liverpool team news vs Midtjylland

As he did last week, Jurgen Klopp is set to rest most of his big hitters and the squad’s fringe players and youngsters another start in Europe.

First-choice goalkeeper Alisson is out with a hamstring injury. With Adrian unlikely to be risked, Caoimhin Kelleher could be handed another start in goal.

Trent Alexander was given 20 odd minutes against Wolves and could start on Wednesday as he regains full fitness.

Youngsters Rhys Williams, Jake Cain, Vitezslav Jaros, and Leighton Clarkson were in Liverpool’s matchday squad against Ajax and will be hoping to be involved again.

Thiago Alcantara is a doubt for the game, while Joe Gomez, James Milner, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are ruled out through injury.

Virgil van Dijk is also sidelined with a long-term knee injury.

Nathaniel Phillips, who has made two Premier League appearances in recent months, is not in the Reds’ Champions League squad.
