Porto vs Liverpool | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Porto has a colossal motive before this match. That is a humiliation they suffered last time Liverpool came to town. As some of you might remember, the Reds won 0:5 at Dragao during the previous edition of the Champions League, and inflicted Porto one of the most painful losses at home in their great history, we have to tell. After winning against Chelsea, the morale is high in Liverpool’s locker room, and they want to continue playing in the same rhythm as they have in the past few weeks.
Match Preview Porto vs Liverpool
Porto didn’t have any problems in the domestic championship before this matchup. They were routine against Portimorense on the road, routing the opponent with 0:3. Probably most of you know that Liverpool beat Chelsea this Sunday with 2:0, and that the Reds continued their race with Manchester City.
The Portuguese team didn’t show their true face at Anfield. Or that is at least our view on their performance from seven days ago. But this is a totally different club when playing at home. Over the previous 20 clashes at Dragao, Porto lost only twice, against two big rivals from Lisboa, Sporting, and Benfica. In five of the lastest seven home games, this team kept clean sheets, while on the other hand managed to score two or more times in 11 of 13 matches here. So, their performances in front of their fans and away, are two totally different worlds. P.S. 9 of 10 events saw a moderate efficiency, 2 or 3 scores.
A triumph versus Chelsea was the seventh in a row for Jurgen Klopp and his army. And this was a massive one, because games against Blues brought nothing but disappointment for Liverpool’s fans over the past six or seven seasons. Also, that victory was the 15th straight game in which this club didn’t lose. Following three consecutive goalless draws on the road, Mane and the boys posted three wins, which all saw both teams to score and over 2.5 goals. But to be honest, their efficiency was never questionable, even in that period when we saw them failing to deliver on a couple of occasions.

Expert Betting Tip
After a long drought, we believe that Porto is finally going to score against this rival. But on the other side, they will concede a couple of goals. We give the edge to the guests, whose counter-attack works perfectly, and since Porto has to attack, for Liverpool’s pacey strikers that means a lot of opportunities to score. Klopp has one of the best offenses in the world at his disposal, and a not so demanding game in the domestic championship next weekend. That suggests that he isn’t going to make any calculations. Plus, the upfront trio is in great shape. That is why we propose to bet also on Liverpool’s efficiency in this event. The Reds to score over 1.5 goals, or to net in both halves. In the end, Porto – Liverpool, 1:2.
