Liverpool face Porto at the Estádio do Dragão stadium on Wednesday evening but the stats suggest that the Reds won’t concede in Portugal.

The second leg of the quarterfinals beckons for the eight teams remaining in the Champions League. Liverpool have placed themselves in the best position to progress after winning the first leg 2-0.

Goals from Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino saw Porto return home empty-handed and facing an uphill battle in the second leg.

Porto are the only side remaining in this year’s tournament that has won all of its home games. This would be a worry for Jurgen Klopp but there is an encouraging stat that should render that omen null and void.

The last time Porto failed to score at home in all competitions was against Liverpool last season. The Blue and Whites were thumped 5-0, with Sadio Mane running riot and scoring a hattrick.

 

This will give the Anfield outfit confidence heading to Portugal.

After beating Chelsea 2-0 in what may well turn out to be a historic Premier League result, Salah and co. will be in frightening form.

Klopp will be hoping for a risk-free performance tomorrow night. An aggregate win will see Liverpool book their place in the semifinals for the second successive season.

Porto will be in defiant mood after missing a few chances in the first leg but the Reds should get the job done.
