The match is over. Score: 2-0. Liverpool 1.33| Draw 5.00| Porto 8.50 Bet Now With Sportingbet Predictions | Betting Tips | Odds | Statistics For the second season straight, Liverpool welcome Porto to Anfield in the knockout stages of the Champions League with a big first-leg lead the only thing on Jurgen Klopp’s mind. Predictions Liverpool may be embroiled in a gargantuan tussle in the Premier League title race Manchester City, but for the time being, that can be put to the back of the queue as the small matter of the Champions League quarter-final first leg takes precedence. Their opponents Porto are in the same situation, embroiled as they are in a title fight with Portuguese giants Benfica, but Liverpool will care little for that, only that their record against their visitors remains far superior. That is because in six meetings between the two, Liverpool have never tasted defeat and have only conceded twice. It will be of little surprise to learn then, that the Reds are favourites with popular sportsbooks to take a healthy lead back to Porto’s Estádio do Dragão in the middle of the month. There is little to suggest the bookmakers are wrong either, especially after Liverpool’s dismantling of Bayern Munich in the round of 16 proved that Klopp’s men are once again a force to be reckoned with, eager to go one step further than last season. In three previous visits to Anfield, Porto have managed to score just once and concede six whilst the Reds have also averaged nearly two more attempts at goal this season than Porto in the Champions League. That makes backing a Liverpool clean sheet the way to go with the best betting sites and make it a third game in a row in all competitions where they have netted exactly two goals in a steady 2-0 home win. 1×2 Predictions Bet Now With Sportingbet Score Predictions Bet Now With Sportingbet Betting Tips Liverpool to win to nil The Reds has never lost to Porto and only conceded once in three home games against the Portuguese giants.
