UCL: Liverpool vs FCM


It is difficult to see a fall from Liverpool in this match, and Midtjylland is a bad opponent in every way and coach Jurgen Klopp can take the opportunity to give one or two of his star names to rest. But the home team must still have enough to win 2 wins from 2 matches in Group D.

Liverpool are hoping to have Thiago Alcantara once again after he was just barely knocked out of Saturday's match against Sheffield United - a legacy of Richarlison's red card in the Merseyside derby. Joel Matip was also absent for the weekend but could return for this match, although Fabinho's form at center-back has been very encouraging since Virgil van Dijk was eliminated for what could possibly be the part. rest of the season. Van Dijk's absence was also partly relieved thanks to Alisson Becker's early return against Sheffield United. Naby Keita is also pushing for a comeback in this match, but Kostas Tsimikas and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are still sidelined. Mohamed Salah will have his 50th Champions League match if selected, and he has scored 9 directly from 9 group stage matches at Anfield, The brace in this match will help him level up Steven Gerrard's record 21 goals in the Champions League. Jota scored in his first Premier League game for the club over the weekend and thus may have done enough to keep his place, that could see Klopp once again use the 4-2 chart. -3-1. However, he could also see this match as a good chance to give one or more of his big name stars a break, with Sadio Mane probably topping that line up with Jota's form.

Midtjylland is expected to welcome Danish international Pione Sisto back to the starting lineup after he scored on the bench in a comeback win over Brondby at the weekend. Sisto has scored 3 goals since returning to the club from Celta Vigo this summer, but he has yet to make a mark in the Champions League. Anders Dreyer is also on the scoresheet at the weekend and has past experience in English football since his time at Brighton & Hove Albion, although he has never played in the first team for the Seagulls. Goalkeeper Jesper Hansen is hoping to improve his undesirable Champions League record, conceding 26 times in seven appearances in this tournament so far - four times against Atalanta in the opening match and 22 with Nordsjaelland in the 2012-13 season. Coach Brian Priske really has some experience in England facing Liverpool three times in a season against Portsmouth in 2005-06, despite losing all three. Midtjylland has also won three out of six previous encounters with rival England, including a famous victory over Manchester United in the Europa League 2015-16.
