Liverpool's first leg advantage over Porto should be enough for them to advance to the semifinals but we're not expecting an easy night for them in Porto.

Match preview 🔵 🔴
Without an away goal, Porto faces a massive task now if they want to overturn a 2-0 first leg deficit.
Encouragingly for them, however, Liverpool has actually failed to score on six occasions this season - three of them in the Champions League. They should have a go tonight and the fact that they did create a few chances for striker Moussa Marega will give them hope. He had scored in six consecutive Champions League games before last week's trip to Anfield where he carried the visitors' biggest goal threat by a distance.
Liverpool brings the confidence of a 16-match unbeaten run, a period which has seen them win 3-1 at Bayern Munich to put to bed a poor away run in this competition. They've won their last seven. The most recent, at home to Chelsea on Sunday, was a significant step towards the Premier League title. They also won away to Porto 5-0 just 14 months ago.
Team news 🌟
The hosts will be delighted that they can welcome back experienced defender Pepe, once of Real Madrid, and captain Hector Herrera is available again after missing the first leg through suspension.
Sadio Mane, who bagged a hat-trick when Liverpool thrashed Porto on their last visit, has eight goals in his last nine games, Mo Salah is scoring again and will be confident after a screamer against Chelsea. Excellent young right back Andy Robertson is also back from suspension.
