Liverpool 11/8 to beat Porto in Wednesday’s Champions League battle
Competition: Champions League
Market: Liverpool to beat Porto
Odds: 11/8 @ Bet365
The Champions League is back for yet another round of games that sees Europe’s very best teams locking horns. With the competition now reaching the knock-out stages there can be no room for complacency, meaning each manager must play their best side if they are to advance. With this in mind, Porto host Liverpool on Wednesday.
Porto were in fairly good form in their group as they finished as runners-up. After six games they won three, drew once and lost twice, scoring 15 times and conceding 10 goals. In their last five they won three, lost once and drew once, which saw them onto 10 points. Porto did finish four points short of Besiktas at the top of their group, while they were three points clear of RB Leipzig in third. Group G was one that saw Porto advance relatively comfortably, and they will be desperate to win the first leg to pile the pressure on Liverpool.
Liverpool were very inconsistent in the Champions League group-stages despite the fact they went through top. After six games they won three times and drew three, scoring 23 goals and conceding six times. In their five they have managed to remain unbeaten, winning three times and drawing twice which saw them finish on 12 points, three clear of Sevilla in second-place. Jurgen Klopp will want to bring some kind of advantage back to Anfield for the second-leg, but he will be very aware of being too attacking.
