Having taken a two-nil advantage in the first leg of the quarterfinals, Liverpool will visit Porto for the second-leg of the fixture at the Estadio do Draga in a late Wednesday night fixture. In the reverse tie, which took place at Liverpool’s iconic Anfield Stadium, Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino scored in the first half but that still leaves ‘The Reds’ with some task for the final leg.
Should they progress to the semis, Liverpool will face Barcelona, where they will be up against te likes of Luis Suarez and Phillipe Coutinho, two former cult heroes of the club.
Porto cannot be underestimated and after Ajax’s display against one of the favourites Juventus, the Jurgen Klopp-led Liverpool side would have taken the right message. Ahead of the fixture, the manager has warned his team to put on a fight for the last four.
“It is so far a very positive season, that is why we are here, but we are not here to celebrate our situation,” he said.
“We are here to go to the next round because the season is not finished. We have to fight really hard.
“Porto won all their home games so far. The atmosphere in the stadium will be more Porto-dominated, that’s clear — they will try to have a kickstart in the game, so that is what I am thinking about and not about how good our season was until now.”
It will be an interesting fixture as Liverpool will aim to take another major step towards what could be their dream season.
