Liverpool - Midtjylland
Champions League, Round 2
Liverpool have not been playing their best lately. Admittedly, they lost only one game, that of Aston Villa with 7: 2, but they are not playing as they know how.
A draw with Everton, a 1-0 away win against Ajax and a 2-1 win against Sheffield at home a few days ago. Ok, Van Dijk is injured and won t be around for long, but the problem is that the ideas in the attack are gone.
But they haven’t forgotten to play, and today is an ideal opponent to show why they won the championship last season. Danish champions Midtjylland lost to Atalanta 4-0 in the first round of the Champions League at home. Liverpool is certainly a better team than Atalanta and I expect them to play as they know how today and achieve a victory of a few goals difference.
