Looking at Liverpool vs Porto Predictions, Liverpool will host Porto in the first leg of the 2018/19 Champions League quarter-final at Anfield.
Last season, Liverpool met Porto in the round of 16. Liverpool won on aggregate five goals without reply. All five of Jurgen Klopp's team goals were created in the first leg in Portugal. Sadio Mane scored a hat-trick , while Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino each contributed one goal for his team.
Liverpool beat Southampton 3-1 in the Premier League last weekend. One scored his first goal since February 9. That must make him confident.
Firmino contributed three goals and two assists in his last five appearances for Liverpool in all competitions. Meanwhile, Mane scored seven goals in his last seven appearances for Liverpool in all competitions.
Trio Mane, Firmino and Salah are in combat ready condition. They will be the main support for Liverpool on the front lines to try to pave the way to the next round.
From the stronghold of Porto, Moussa Marega is arguably the most dangerous player.
Marega is Porto's leading scorer in the Champions League this season (6 goals). He also always scored in his last six appearances for Porto in this competition.
Porto is ready to provide resistance. But coach Sergio Conceicao must play his brain in concocting the composition of his players. Because the central defender Pepe was suspended and could not be played. Midfielder and captain Hector Herrera too. Meanwhile, striker Vincent Aboubakar is still injured and the condition of wing defender Alex Telles is quite doubtful.
Porto needs all the best players. But Porto must come to Anfield with unequal strength. This can end up being unpleasant for them.
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 20 home matches in European competition. Liverpool also have only lost once in their home games against teams from Portugal. Naturally, if the Reds are favored to win.
