30/1 Liverpool to beat Porto
FC Porto v Liverpool betting preview
Porto have only lost one of their last 22 competitive matches at homeGoals from Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino handed Porto a 2-0 defeat at Anfield. They will now need to score at least three unreplied goals if they desire to overturn the two-goal deficit from the reverse fixture. Their loss in Liverpool was not really a surprise, given they have never won a European tie in England, with that run now stretching to 19 games. The Dragoes did follow that defeat at Anfield with an assured 3-0 win over Portimonense which kept them only below Benfica on goal difference in Portugal’s top flight.They have only lost one of their last eight competitive games and have kept clean sheets in five of their last seven home games.
Pepe and Hector Herrera return from suspension for the hosts and are expected to feature from the off. As a result, Vincent Aboubakar is the only absentee. The versatile Eder Militao - off to Real Madrid in the summer - will shuffle across to right-back with Felipe and Alex Telles completing the four man backline. Tiquinho Soares and Moussa Marega are likely to lead the line with Otavio and Jesus Corona out wide. Danilo Pereira will partner Herrera in the middle of the park.
Liverpool have won seven matches in a row in all competitionsLiverpool hold a commanding 2-0 advantage ahead of Wednesday's return leg in Portugal after they produced a dominant display in the first-leg fixture at Anfield. The Reds backed up that triumph with another 2-0 win over Chelsea to remain on top of the Premier League table. That result extended their winning run to seven matches. Furthermore, last week's victory for the Reds at Anfield leaves them with a record of four wins and three draws from their previous seven meetings with the Portuguese side. The Reds won 5-0 at the Estadio do Dragao in the first knockout round last term.
Jurgen Klopp may be without skipper Jordan Henderson, as he sustained an ankle injury in the second half of the Chelsea match. The visitors will also be without Dejan Lovren due to illness, but fellow defender Joe Gomez did travel and could be an option off the bench after making his comeback from a leg fracture. The front trio - Sadio Manè, Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino - remain unchanged, with Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge backup options. Adam Lallana has returned to the squad, but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains absent.
