Porto v Liverpool: Entertaining clash awaits Klopp, Salah and co

| 13.02.2018

It’s been almost ten years, but tonight Liverpool make their return to the Champions League knockout stages.

The five-time European champions head to Portugal to face Porto, and Jurgen Klopp’s men are 13/10 favourites to win the first leg.

Porto are 2/1 shots, with the draw chalked up at 23/10.

Liverpool have picked a good time to find form after defeats to Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion.

They were at their clinical best to sweep aside both Huddersfield Town and Southampton, and put two past Tottenham Hotspur 10 days ago.

Porto are hoping 26-goal striker Vincent Aboubakar can be fit tonight, but either way, their renowned home form means they’ll give Liverpool a real game this evening.

They’ve lost just one of their last 44 matches at the Estadio Do Dragao.

That’s not just domestic games either. Porto fired five past last season’s heroes Monaco and three beyond RB Leipzig in the group stage. Both Teams to Score tonight is a confident-looking 7/10.

Over 2.5 goals – as has occurred in 10 of Liverpool’s last 12 games – offers more value at 10/11.

With Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in such fine form, Liverpool will be confident of edging this one, and it’s 7/2 they win with both teams to score.

The scintillating Salah has netted 20 goals in his last 19 club appearances, and heads the betting to score first at 4/1.

It’s 7/5 the Egyptian scores anytime. Firmino is 5/1 first and 7/4 anytime.

For the hosts, Moussa Marega could be the main man should Aboubakar miss out.

The Mali international has scored 17 times this season and is 9/2 to open the scoring and 13/8 to score at any point.
