Group D Liverpool had a tougher job than expected in the match against the Danish Midtjylland (2:0). Liverpool did not send a single shot to the opponent’s goal after the first 45 minutes. It was the first time that Jurgen Klopp’s team finished the first half with such an impact after 51 games in all competitions.
Liverpool, meanwhile, was left without Fabinho, who was hospitalized, so Klopp had a lot to think about. The poor attacking performance in the first half was possibly affected by the fact that Salah, Firmino, and Mane played only in the second half, while Jota, Minamino, Shaqiri, and Origi began the game at the top of the attack.
Liverpool goals were scored by Jota (55′) and Salah (90 + 3′). The target of Jota was also 10,000. A goal in the history of Liverpool in all competitions.
Atalanta drew home against Ajax in the second game of this division (2:2). The guests had a major advantage over Tadić (30′, penalty) and Traore (38′), but Zapata (54′, 60′) took the point to the host.
Liverpool now has six points, Atalanta four, Ajax one, while the Danish club has no points.
