Liverpool wasted absolutely no time in this match getting on the scoreboard. Mo Salah took advantage of an uncertain defense to corral a loose pass and charge into the penalty area where he just tapped the ball past the advancing keeper to give Liverpool the early 1-0 lead. It took some time, but Midtjylland did find the eqaulizer in the second half. Scholz took the perfect penalty, and despite the Liverpool keeper guessing correctly, Scholz’s shot was placed in an area the keeper could not get to it.
Despite jumping out to the early lead, Liverpool was held scoreless for the remaining 89 minutes of the match and Midtjylland did enough to claw back into it forcing the 1-1 draw. Despite the draw, Liverpool finished at the top of Group D and advanced to the Round of 16, and Midtjylland was eliminated finishing at the bottom of the group.
