Liverpool are never far away from a victory and despite a lot of scepticism over their capabilities this season, they sit second in the Premier League and have lost just one of their last 12 matches across all competitions as they consistently seem to pick up points.
However, while form is usually a good indicator for how a side will perform here, we’d be surprised to see the likes of Mohamad Salah and Sadio Mane start this match, to name a couple, and it’s unsurprising that the Reds don’t tend to be as domineering without their star men.
The best indicator of this would be to look at how Liverpool have performed in the domestic cups where Klopp tends to offer his fringe players an opportunity to perform, though they rarely live up to expectation and have gone W6-D4-L9 in those games since the beginning of 2017.
While it’s not the most accurate of representations, it still indicates how much they rely on their star players, and if they weren’t to feature here there could be some serious value in getting the hosts onside.
Midtjylland are one of just six sides who are yet to register a win in this year’s Champions League, though they do currently sit top of the Danish Superligaen with seven wins from their 11 matches so far.
They’ve also been impressive at home this year going W6-D1-L2 in all competitions at MCH Arena with their two defeats coming against full strength Ajax and Atalanta sides in this group.
There’s little doubt that Liverpool would have far too much for the Danish outfit with their full side out, though with players missing and likely rested there could be a window of opportunity here.
Under 2.5 Goals
What is noticeable is there’s little in the way of prolific goalscorers for either side here, with only Diogo Jota proving he can find the net with any sort of regularity from Liverpool’s second string front line, which may also include Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi.
The visitors don’t have much scope for rotation at the back though, and it’s very possible that Trent Alexander-Arnold gets a good run out here alongside Joel Matip.
While there’s been a lot of speculation that the Merseyside club would miss Virgil van Dijk, they’ve only conceded six in 11 games since his injury, keeping clean sheets in over half those games.
While we feel Midtjylland could get something from this, the market has reacted to the probable line ups and the double chance doesn’t seem to hold as much value as an ‘Unders’ bet, and that’s what we’ll go for here considering we’re struggling to see where goals are going to come from.
