Champions League: Our Top Liverpool v FC Midtjylland Odds Picks


Danish Champions FC Midtjylland have emerged as unlikely trailblazers when it comes to football analytics.

And when they clash with an equally tech-savvy Liverpool in the “Data Derby”, the stats men may outnumber the coaches at Anfield!

Our Top Odds Pick – Liverpool to Win by More Than Two Goals – 5/6 at bet365

Presumably, the analysis of FC Midtjylland’s first Champions League group game focussed on how easily Atalanta tore through them, on their way to a 4-0 victory.

You don’t need a computer to calculate the step up in class from the Danish top flight to the Champions League, and it doesn’t get any easier with a trip to Anfield next up.

Liverpool put a difficult week behind them with victories over Ajax and Sheffield United, and look set to inflict more Dane pain.

Our Extra Pick – The Second Half to be the Highest Scoring Half – 10/11 at Betfair

After conceding three first-half goals against Atalanta, Midtjylland will be instructed to keep things tight for as long as possible at Anfield.

However, that could well take its toll against a formidable Liverpool side, who could fill their boots against a tiring opposition after the break.

Our Long Shot – Anders Dreyer to Score – 6/1 at Paddy Power

Liverpool should win comfortably, but keeping a clean sheet is by no means a formality for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

The shock goal they conceded against Sheffield United will not have gone unnoticed by the Midtjylland computer boffins.

And striker Anders Dreyer is best-placed to take advantage of any Liverpool lapses, after netting five times this season, including two in their Champions League qualifying games.
