Liverpool vs Porto – Betting Tips and Predictions

Liverpool have one foot in the last-eight of Champions League as they prepare to host Porto in the second leg of their last-16 tie at Anfield on Tuesday.

The Reds registered a 5-0 win in the first leg in Portugal last month, and the Portuguese side must not be looking forward to playing in the cold temperatures of Merseyside.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he is not taking the tie for granted and will make only two-three changes to his starting eleven for the game.

Liverpool come into this game following a 2-0 home win over Newcastle United. They are placed third in the league table, and it appears that Klopp has secured Champions League football for yet another season.

They have scored goals for fun in Champions League, and we expect them to add a few more on Tuesday.

Porto come into this game on the back of a crucial 2-1 win over Sporting Lisbon in the domestic league. Porto currently have a five-point lead at the top of their league table, and they look on course to claim their first league title since 2013.

Since this tie is as well as dead for the Portuguese giants, head coach Sérgio Conceição could rest some of his key players for this game.
