Liverpool vs FC Porto Preview

Liverpool vs FC Porto (5:0)

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Anfield

Date: 6th March 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

When Liverpool were drawn with FC Porto many people expected this to be a tough and interesting game for the Reds, but they have made a meal of the Portuguese league leaders and head into this game with the match effectively over after their 0-5 win in the first leg.

With that many away goals, Liverpool could rest some key players for their trip to Old Trafford on Saturday but we suspect Jurgen Klopp will not want to risk halting his team’s momentum.

After their 2-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday, they have now won 5 and drawn 1 of their last 6 games, scoring 18 goals which means they can inflict more misery on FC Porto.

FC Porto have won their last 4 matches since they lost to Liverpool in the first leg, scoring 15 goals in that period of time which shows they are a quality side.

They don’t have the best away record in the Champions League as they have won only one of their last 5 away games in Europe and they conceded 3 goals when they visited Leipzig earlier in the season.

Porto have lost 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5 meetings with Liverpool.
