Kick-off: 2000, 28/09/2021
Stadium: Estadio Do Dragao
TV: BT Sport
Liverpool will have fond memories of visiting Estadio Do Dragao and can prove too strong for Porto in the Champions League again.
The Reds won 5-0 here in 2018 on route to reaching the final and prevailed 4-1 at this venue the following year before going on to lift the trophy.
We’re happy to take 8/11 for Jurgen Klopp’s side to oblige in Portugal once more for our first Porto vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Porto’s Betting Odds
Admittedly, Porto have been in fine form so far this season, despite losing midfielder Danilo Pereira to PSG on loan and seeing striker Moussa Marega depart.
The Dragons are unbeaten in seven Liga Portugal Bwin matches, posting five wins and away draws at Maritimo and Sporting.
Sergio Conceicao’s side also held Atletico Madrid to a goalless stalemate in Spain on Matchday 1 in this pool.
Porto actually hit the woodwork and had a Mehdi Taremi goal ruled out for handball at Wanda Metropolitano.
They are now without the suspended Chancel Mbemba following the defender’s late red card, though, and could be vulnerable at the back.
Examining the Porto vs Liverpool odds, we feel 11/5 for an away victory and both teams to score takes the eye.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool enjoyed the latest in a long line of exciting European nights on Merseyside when coming from behind to beat AC Milan 3-2 a fortnight ago.
Klopp felt his side “got carried away by our own football” at times, but added: “It is the football I want to see in most moments.”
The Reds showed some defensive frailties in that game and when drawing 3-3 at Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday.
They are currently playing with great confidence and self-belief going forward, though, seemingly creating chances at will.
Sunday’s crunch clash with Manchester City is far enough away for Klopp not to worry too much about freshening up his team.
We’re adding 10/3 for the visitors to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 to our Porto vs Liverpool betting tips.
Gil Vicente 1-2 PORTO – Mehdi Taremi, Sergio Oliveira
Brentford 3-3 LIVERPOOL – Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah, Curtis Jones
Head-to-head: Porto 1-4 Liverpool, Liverpool 2-0 Porto, Liverpool 0-0 Porto, Porto 0-5 Liverpool, Liverpool 4-1 Porto, Porto 1-1 Liverpool
