Liverpool vs Midtjylland Predictions and Betting Tips
Liverpool vs Midtjylland Predictions and betting : Recent form
Liverpool have a settled side for a while that led them to a dominant title win in 2019 season in the premier league. But their Europe campaign wasn’t as great as it was in 2018 season with a round of 16 defeat against Atletico Madrid that ended their UEFA Champions league campaign.
Coming into the season, they had a good run in the premier league with three wins but have lost their way with a huge defeat against Aston Villa and a draw against Everton. It is important for them to start well and take the momentum for the upcoming games in Europe as well. They have scored 16 goals in the last 6 matches accounting to 2.67 goals per game.
Midtjylland are coming off a great season in Denmark after winning the Superliga which is the highest tier football league of the country.
They were ruthless in the UEFA Champions league qualifying rounds and made it to the main draw after a convincing win against Slavia Praha. On the other hand, they are currently sitting at 5th position with 3 wins, 1 loss and a draw in 5 games.
They have scored 11 goals in 6 games at the rate of 1.83 per game which they will have to improve when they play Liverpool.

Liverpool vs Midtjylland Predictions and betting : Offensive and defensive stats
The Liverpool will stick to their 4-3-3 combination to exert pressure on their rivals whereas the visitors will probably field an unconventional 4-2-3-1 formation for them to stop Liverpool from running away with the game.
Liverpool’s attack is one of the best currently but has misfired in the last couple of games. Sadio Mane has been sharp and the game changer for the team in the recent games but will most likely come back after he contracted Corona virus. He has 4 goals in 4 matches along with 81.9% pass success and 4.3 shots per game.
He will be joined by one of the best strikers Mo Salah who single-handedly saved some grace against Everton with a goal. He has 5.7 shots per game along with 83% accuracy and 6 goals in 5 games. He also creates 3 key passes and 2.6 dribbles per game that will definitely rattle the defense.
Firmino has been amazing in the previous games with 2 assists so far but will be looking to find some form in the champions league.
Looking at Midtjylland’s attack, Kaba leads the way as a striker who will be supported by the likes of Dreyer, Mabil and Sisto.
Sory Kaba has so far scored 6 goals in 16 appearances that has helped his team win so many games. Anders Dreyer has been of great help with 8 goals whereas Awer Mabil has netted on 5 occasions so far.
Virgil Van Dijk will be absent for at least 2 months after a tackle from Everton goal keeper last week. Joel Matip will have to shoulder the responsibility in Van Dijk’s absence who has 79.6% pass accuracy and is exceptional with the aerial duels with 1.5 duels won per game. Joseph Gomez has made the most of his opportunities and is most likely to make the eleven. He is incredibly good in aerial duels along with sharp passing skills. He has 88.6% success in passes, 2.7 aerials won per game and 3.3 clears per game which is often under appreciated.
Andrew Robertson will most probably play as the left back defender for the team who holds on to the ball pretty well and frustrates the opponent’s attack. He has 84.5% pass completion rate along with a goal, an assist and 2 clears in the last 13 appearances.
The Midtjylland backlines has the services of Andersson, Sviatchenko, Scholz and Paulinho. Joel Andersson is a prime defender for the team whose strength is to hold on to the ball but has to improve his tackling.
Alexander Scholz is a versatile candidate who not only defends but has also scored in the qualifying rounds. He counter-attacks well and is a set-piece threat for the opponents.
