Pre-buzz around the game
Liverpool and Midtjylland have never faced each other before. As far as injury news goes for both sides, Virgil van Dijk, Kostas Tsimikas, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remain on the injured list while Alcantara and Joel Matip's fitness will be assessed ahead of the game. For Midtjylland, Defenders Kristian Dirks Riis and right-back Oliver Olsen will sit out.
Now, the Danish club might be the weakest in the group that has the Reds, Ajax, and Atalanta, but Jurgen Klopp's men have seen some upset losses and know they cannot take the side for granted. That they're performing well in the absence of Van Dijk shows the class of the side and the team will be eager to continue their winning streak.
Who will win?
While Liverpool are definitely the favorites with 3-0 predictions milling about, Midtjylland will have a tough time trying to stay alive in the competition. Expect a good result for the Reds on Tuesday.
