Liverpool made it two wins from two in the Champions League this week. The Reds were in scintillating form as they took apart their hosts and not for the first time. Mo Salah joked about the Porto stadium after the Reds made it 14-2 over the last three games there.
Porto 1-5 Liverpool
The Reds headed to Portugal with a couple of key players missing in Thiago and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Despite the absences the Reds dominated the game throughout, the hosts didn’t have a sniff; their goal came very much against the run of play.
Curtis Jones ran the show in the middle of the park, the Scouser was too much for the opposition with his strength, determination and direct running.
Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino bagged a brace each with Sadio Mane registering a tap in.
Mo Salah on Porto stadium
The Estadio do Dragao has become a happy hunting ground for Liverpool in recent seasons.
We faced Porto in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 editions of the Champions League; every time we head to their ground we dominate.
The past three meetings between the sides in Portugal have ended 14-2 to Liverpool on aggregate.
Speaking after the game Mo Salah joked we should play all of our home games at Porto.
What RTK has to say
Mo doesn’t often do the interviews but we’d like to see him do more if he’s going to keep wisecracking.
The Porto crowd must be having nightmares of him and his attacking teammates by now.
We just batter them every time we show up there, why do they keep having us back?
