LIVERPOOL have won two out of two without Virgil van Dijk and should make it three on Saturday.
The big Dutchman will be a big loss but Jurgen Klopp's side are finding a way to win games.
Luckily for him the Champions League tie is at home to Danish debutants Midtjylland who were hammered 4-0 by Atalanta last week.
This should be a straightforward win for the Premier League champs but they are no bigger than 1-8 at McBookie so the search for value is on.
Klopp will be chasing goals and I can see the Reds covering the -2 handicap at 10-11 with McBookie.
Mo Salah continues to be the Reds' biggest goal threat and is just 9-5 to score first while Sadio Mane is 3-1.
Atalanta are Liverpool's biggest rivals in the group and I like them at 3-4 with McBookie at home to Ajax although they returned from Denmark to lose 3-1 at home to Sampdoria.
The Italians and over 2.5 goals could be the call at 23-20 with McBookie – their last five have gone over 3.5.
Man City started well with a 3-1 win against Benfica but could be without a centre-forward in Marseille.
Andre Villas-Boas' side lost 1-0 at Olympiakos and are struggling in Ligue 1 but City look short at 4-11 with McBookie.
I'd rather back Raheem Sterling, likely to play as a false nine, at 17-20 to score or 3-1 to hit the opener.
Another side looking for a big win are Bayern Munich at Lokomotiv Moscow in an early game.
Bayern beat Atletico Madrid 4-0 last week and thrashed Eintracht Frankfurt 5-0 at the weekend and Robert Lewandowski can't stop scoring.
The Pole became the first player to score 10 Bundesliga goals in the opening five games with his latest hat-trick and is just 6-4 to score first.
Atletico Madrid should bounce back from their Bayern lesson by beating Salzburg at 8-13 with McBookie.
- Liverpool -1
- Atletico Madrid
- (22-5, McBookie)
