FC Porto to win and BTTS @ 21/5 with Coral

The close nature of this tie is reflected by the similarity of all our betting tips. Liverpool have such great attacking quality, which they have shown in the Champions League before this season. Porto, though, are traditionally excellent at home and after a shaky start to this campaign, found their composure to qualify from their group alongside Besiktas.

GRAB THIS BETFRED OFFER!!


The key men in this tie are obvious for the Reds, with Mohamed Salah performing well above expectations this season. Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are also good enough to win any game, too, but Jurgen Klopp’s men will have to be on alert to stop the likes of Yacine Brahimi and Vincent Aboubakar going forward for Porto. Either way, this tie is going to go the distance and from Klopp’s point of view, staying in it heading into the home leg will not be the worst thing in the world.

Form

In the Champions League, Liverpool were far from convincing earlier in the season, with a 3-3 draw from 3-0 up at Sevilla showcasing their glaring defensive frailties. They have not travelled well in the Premier League recently, either, losing at then bottom club Swansea a matter of weeks ago. The Reds will hope Virgil van Dijk makes a positive impact on his European debut for the club.
