class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>There is little at stake in this dead rubber Champions League clash and our tipster is backing a slow burner when Klopp's Reds visit Denmark
Liverpool are aiming to close out their Champions League group stage with victory when they travel to Midtjylland on Wednesday night.
A nervy 1-0 win over Ajax last week, coupled with Atalanta failing to win, means the Reds will progress to the knockout stages as Group D winners, regardless of the result in Denmark.
There is little at stake but pride in this clash, with Liverpool looking to maintain momentum ahead of a packed festive period whilst Midtjylland are searching for a first ever win in the Champions League.
Midtjylland vs Liverpool Latest Odds
Midtjylland drew 1-1 in Atalanta last week and are 3/1 (4.0) outsiders with bet365 to follow that up with a famous win over the Premier League champions.
Having already secured top spot, the bookmakers are anticipating a much-changed Liverpool side for this one and offer 5/6 (1.83) that they pick up a fifth win in the group stage.
The Reds are yet to draw any games in this season’s competition and bet365 offer 14/5 (3.80) that their trip to Denmark ends all square.
Midtjylland vs Liverpool Team News
Midtjylland have a clean bill of health for the visit of Liverpool and so Brian Priske may opt for his strongest side in an attempt to make history with a win.
Jurgen Klopp will no doubt make wholesale changes, with Rhys Williams, Kostas Tsimikas, Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi all likely to start whilst Naby Keita and Trent Alexander-Arnold could feature after recently returning from injury.
Midtjylland vs Liverpool Preview
Ahead of a traditionally busy festive period for his injury-ravaged side, Klopp will certainly be pleased that he is able to play fringe and youth players for this dead rubber.
The Liverpool manager actually employed similar tactics in the reverse fixture and against Atalanta two weeks ago, which saw a changed Reds side put in a pair of very flat performances despite important points being on the line.
With nothing to play for, it could be yet another tepid affair in Denmark especially considering Midtjylland have created the third-fewest chances in the Champions League this season and scored only three times.
Midtjylland vs Liverpool Tips and Predictions
There is little to suggest that this fixture will be particularly entertaining and the 13/10 (2.30) price on under 2.5 goals from bet365 looks to be worthy of a wager, with it paying out in four of Liverpool’s five Champions League games so far.
