90' + 3' GOAL! Salah wraps it up from the spot, 2-0 to Liverpool. He hammers the penalty into the bottom-right corner, and the goalkeeper goes the other way.

55' Assist Trent Alexander-Arnold
Diogo Jota
55' Goal Diogo José Teixeira da Silva


45' + 1' Two minutes of stoppage time.
45' We're nearly at half-time, which is good news.
43' Origi is flagged offside after latching onto a long ball over the top from Alexander-Arnold.
J. Milner
Yellow Card
41' Milner is booked for cynically hauling down Sisto as the visitors looked to launch a counter-attack. They had a two-on-two on the halfway line.
40' Shaqiri slips Milner in at the right sode of the area, and Sviatchenko does well to get a boot in the way of his shot. Corner.
38' Jota meets the corner with his right boot but the ball seems to catch him by surprise, and he can only side-foot it tamely behind.
37' Robertson gets into space at the left side of the area and looks to fizz a low cross along the line of the six-yard box, but Andersson gets in the way.
36' With 35 minutes played, there has been one shot in the game - Dreyer's early effort after getting in behind. Yawn.
34' It has all been a bit low-key so far. Apart from that early chance which Dreyer should have scored, Liverpool are doing enough to keep Midtjylland at arm's length without ever really putting any moves of their own together.
J. Cajuste
Yellow Card
32' Cajuste gets Midtjylland's third yellow card of the half for a late challenge on Henderson, just outside the Liverpool area. The visitors are pressing hard and snapping into tackles but it could easily cost them if they end up a man down.
R. Williams
30' The 19-year-old Williams comes on for Fabinho, who can't continue. Looks like it might be a hamstring issue, though he was able to walk off without assistance.
28' Uh-oh. Fabinho has gone down off the ball, and the physios are on. Liverpool do not need this.
27' Minamino almost steals in behind as he takes a nice first touch from Henderson's pass, but Sviatchenko gets between him and the ball as it runs behind to the goalkeeper.
F. Onyeka
Yellow Card
25' Onyeka is booked for a clumsy tackle from behind on Origi.
23' Alexander-Arnold does really well as he dribbles into the area from the right, getting between five defenders. He looks to pick out Minamino with a deft outside-of-the-foot pass, but Sviatchenko cuts it out and clears.
22' Both teams have been guilty of some pretty sloppy passing so far tonight. Cajuste side-foots the ball straight out of play inside his own half, but Liverpool don't take the opportunity to spring an attack.
20' Alexander-Arnold chips the ball in behind from the resulting free kick, which is in a central position. He tries to pick out the run of Henderson towards the left post, but he overhits the set-piece.
A. Scholz
Yellow Card
19' Scholz is shown the first yellow card of the match for fouling Jota as he looked to get in behind.
16' Kaba is working really hard to press the Liverpool back line when they have possession. They're having to hurry their build-up play, and aren't looking all that comfortable on the ball after some recent wobbles.
14' Alexander-Arnold puts in a good low cross from the right, but it bounces awkwardly and Minamino can't get a touch as he twists to turn it goalward. Andersson puts it behind to deny Shaqiri, who was lurking at the back post for a tap-in, but the corner is cleared.
13' Alexander-Arnold delivers another free-kick from the right. It's a flatter delivery this time, aimed towards the right corner of the six-yard box, but Scholz dives to head clear.
12' Liverpool are looking to record back-to-back wins in their first two games for only the second time in the Champions League group stage. They last managed it in 2008-09, beating Marseille and PSV.
11' Alexander-Arnold whips in a free-kick from by the right touchline. He shapes it nicely onto the penalty spot, but it's headed clear.
10' It hasn't been a fluent start from Liverpool. Gomez looks to pick out Jota with a crossfield ball from left to right, but he gets it wrong and the ball flies into the stand.
9' Paulinho cuts onto his right foot from the left and crosses towards Kaba, but Gomez gets ahead of him and makes a firm headed clearance.
7' The visitors win a free-kick on the right, just beyond the corner of the penalty area. Sisto looks to pick out Scholz with a disguised low pass around the wall, but he overhits it and it fizzes through to Alisson at his near post.
6' Midtjylland have started well enough here. They aren't looking to be negative depsite taking a battering last time out.
4' The corner from the Midtjylland left is cleared away.
3' Midtjylland should be ahead! Liverpool's high line is picked off by a long ball forward from the centre-back Scholz. It's nicely weighted and Dreyer carries it into the area after breaking in behind, but Alisson gets out to smother his finish.
2' Liverpool start positively, working space for Alexander-Arnold to cross from the right. He lifts the ball in with the outside of his right boot, but it's a simple catch for goalkeeper Andersen.
1' We're off!
