LIVE: FC Porto vs Liverpool | Champions League
Liverpool players prepare to face their Champions League quarter-final tie against Porto tonight.
Last season, Porto had suffered their heaviest ever home defeat – 5-0 – in European competition against Liverpool in Champions League. They now look to avenge the damage done.
Flashback Liverpool 5-0 FC Porto
However, Liverpool head to Portugal with a 2-0 advantage after Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino scored goals.
The FC Porto vs Liverpool UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg will take place at Estadio do Dragao in Porto.
Klopp welcomes Andrew Robertson back to his team selection after the Scotland captain was suspended for the first leg at Anfield last week. With the Reds scoring plenty recently, keeping it tight at the back and finally finding the right balance in midfield, all their stars seem to be aligning at the perfect time.
Last week’s defeat at Anfield was Porto’s first since the beginning of March and, while their European campaign is hanging by a thread, their assault at reclaiming the Primeira Liga title remains firmly on course after a comfortable weekend win away to Portimonense. They also have a Portuguese Cup final for which to prepare at the end of May, with a recent draw at Braga confirming their passage with a 4-1 aggregate scoreline.
Liverpool have won their last seven games in all competitions, maintaining their grip on top spot in the Premier League and moving to within touching distance of the Champions League semi-finals for the second successive season.
