Liverpool will be looking to strengthen their position in Champions League Group D when they welcome Midtjylland to Anfield on Tuesday.
The Reds got off to a good start to this season’s competition, running out narrow 1-0 winners over Ajax in Amsterdam last week, but it was not such a happy outing for Midtjylland as they lost 4-0 at home to Atalanta.

Liverpool vs Midtjylland Team News
Thiago Alcantara, Joel Matip and Naby Keita call all be back in contention following injury, although Virgil van Dijk, Kostas Tsimikas and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are ruled out.

Liverpool vs Midtjylland Preview
Having scraped to a rather edgy win over Ajax, it seems unlikely that Jurgen Klopp’s team will produce so little against a team that conceded four goals on home turf last time out.
In fact, the Danish minnows are without a clean sheet in five fixtures coming into this clash, having conceded twice in each of their last two domestic away matches – albeit scoring five times themselves.
The Wolves may even fancy their chances of getting on the scoresheet at Anfield considering the hosts failed to keep a clean sheet in three home group games last campaign and have managed just one clean sheet in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool vs Midtjylland Tips and Predictions
With Van Dijk’s absence causing vulnerability at the back, even money (2.00) seems generous on both teams getting on target for Liverpool’s sixth game in eight and a fifth in six for Midtjylland.
