Liverpool - Midtjylland
Liverpool are huge favorites in this match, however I think Midtjylland could upset the Reds. The key reason for my pick is connect with Liverpool. They are without the best defender Virgil Van Dijk. As You probably know, he suffered a severe knee injury and will be out for at least six months. His absence is a huge handicap as Klopp doesn t have an adequate replacement. Joe Gomez is the only recognized centre-back at the moment. Joel Matip is struggling with injury, while Dejan Lovren left the club during the summer. Klopp will probably put Fabinho on that position, but the Brazilian played poor against Sheffield United on Saturday.
Few words about Midtjylland. They are debutantes in the Champions League and that s the reason why they lost 4:0 to Atalanta in the first round. Now they are free from the pressure and I am sure they will play better and better in the next period. The Danes have nothing to lose in this match. I think they could upset the English champions.
