Porto host Liverpool in the 2nd leg of their quarter final in the Champions League, kicking off at 8:00pm local time on Wednesday. The first leg saw Liverpool take control of the tie, as they travel to Portugal with a 2-goal advantage – and the added bonus of a clean sheet.

Home Team: Porto

Porto were down and out after their first leg loss to Liverpool last season in the Champions League, after being embarrassed 5-0. Following the first 30 minutes at Anfield, they would have been worried history was going to repeat itself. However, Porto managed to stay in the tie, and could have even nicked a goal on another night. Admittedly, they are huge underdogs here, but scoring the first goal of this game will be crucial, and if they were to get it with a lot of time on the clock, the visitors may become naturally cautious which could play into the hosts hands.

Porto won at the weekend against Portimonense, in a comfortable 3-0 victory to keep them level at the top of the Portuguese league. However, before their attention shifts back to that, they have a colossal match against Liverpool, where the likes of Hector Herrera and Pepe will return for some added experience, to try and pull-off one of the greatest comebacks.

Away Team: Liverpool

Liverpool are flying at the moment, and arguably hitting their strongest bit of form all season – and at just the right time! They have seen of the likes of Tottenham, Southampton and Chelsea in recent weeks in the Premier League, which has sent them top with just four games remaining. The bookies still have Manchester City as slight favorites for that, but there is a strong feeling within the camp, and from the passionate fans, that this might actually be their year.

Despite the mammoth title race, they have been incredible in Europe recently too, by winning at Bayern Munich, and then comfortably beating Porto in the first leg this past week. They should have enough firepower to see this game out, and reach the semi-finals of the Champions League. And, who knows… they could be in line for an infamous double?

Head to Head

Liverpool’s win last week takes their amount of victories to 4 against Porto in their history, out of the 7 meetings – with Porto yet to win one yet. Not only will Porto have to achieve something they have never done in their history, but they have to also win by at least a 2-goal margin. Porto did lose at home 5-0 in last season’s Champions League, but they were able to draw their two previous home matches against Liverpool back in 2001 and again in 2007. Can they finally beat Liverpool, in their 8th time of asking?

Prediction and Tips Porto vs Liverpool

bet now betting on football Porto are at 5/2 to get that historic victory for them, with Liverpool slight favourites to win on the night at 21/20. For the sides to draw, which would suit the visitors, that is priced at 12/5. To qualify, Porto are at 10/1, with Liverpool almost dead-certs to go through at 1/33. Personally, I can only see Liverpool advancing, but I am foreseeing a somewhat positive result for the home team. I will go for a 1-1 draw in this match, at 11/2.

I see Porto getting the first goal in the game (5/4), but for Liverpool to grab an equaliser, probably from Sadio Mane (13/5 to score at any time), in the 2nd half. You can also back Sadio Mane to score in a draw, at 10/1. Backing Porto to win or draw, is priced at a reasonable 8/11. Finally, to increase winnings on the away side, you can back them to keep a 4th consecutive clean sheet against Porto at 7/4, or back them to take control once again – so a HT/FT of Liverpool/Liverpool is at 21/10.
