Liverpool could be forced to forfeit FC Midtjylland tie

2020 is a real ball isn’t it. It is just so fun. I’m having the best time. Are you having the best time? It’s just such a good year. What a year for the books. I am just so over the moon I can’t contain my exci– oh I can’t keep it up. The latest twist to the hellfire tale of 2020 is that Liverpool could be forced to forfeit their game against FC Midtjylland.

Liverpool dominate UCL group

The Reds have had a strong start to their Champions League campaign.

Jürgen Klopp journeyed to Ajax on the opening day and scraped a win against the Dutch champions.

Matchday two saw a drab win over Danish champions FC Midtjylland, Mo Salah and Diogo Jota with the goals.

The third game was a marvel, Liverpool thrashed Atalanta in their own backyard. Jota bagged a hattrick whilst Sadio Mane and Mo Salah grabbed one each.

The Reds are just one win away from qualifying for the next round.

Liverpool could forfeit FC Midtjylland tie

New travel restrictions between the UK and Denmark have cast doubt on the Liverpool trip to FC Midtjylland.

This is due to a new strain of Coronavirus in the country, the UK government have provided no exemption for elite athletes.

Should the government remain firm with their policy and not provide any exemption then the Reds’ trip to Denmark on the 9th of December is in doubt.

The fixture could be postponed or even forfeited by the Reds. England face a similar dilemma with regards to their tie with Iceland.

What RTK has to say

This wouldn’t be a disaster given that we will have likely qualified by the time we play FC Midtjylland.

However, there is a chance that forfeiting the fixture would impact us winning the group.

There is the obvious benefit of the lack of a game providing the Reds with a much needed rest, though Jürgen Klopp’s winning attitude may not see the situation that way.
