Liverpool vs Porto: Champions League Round of 16 2nd leg preview

Liverpool host Portuguese side FC Porto at Anfield on Tuesday night for the 2nd leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie.

The Reds ended the weekend in 2nd place, following their 2-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring with his 24th Premier League goal of the season, and his 32nd in all competitions. Sadio Mane doubled the lead in the second half.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have won all of their last four, scoring 13 and conceding 1 in that time.

Liverpool vs Porto: A formality

Tuesday’s match is likely to be little more than a formality for both sides, as the Reds won the first leg 5-0 in Portugal.

Mane and Salah both netted braces and Roberto Firmino also got his name on the scoresheet in a convincing display.

Porto have since won all four of their subsequent matches, scoring five goals in two of them.

Ivan Mercano and Yacine Brahimi scored in Porto’s 2-1 win over Sporting on Friday night.

Sergio Conceicao’s side are five points clear at the summit of the Primeira Liga table, but Tuesday night’s game will almost certainly be their last European fixture of the season.

Liverpool team news vs Porto

Emre Can is available after serving one-game suspension in the first leg.

Alberto Moreno is a booking away from a ban in the competition.

Gini Wijnaldum is a doubt through illness.

Nathaniel Clyne is lacking match practice and has not played for the first team this season due to a back injury, although he is included in Liverpool’s Champions League squad.

Given the result in the first leg, Jurgen Klopp may have one eye on the upcoming fixture against Manchester United.
