Liverpool vs Porto: Portuguese can spring Anfield surprise

Kick-off: 2000, 24/11/2021

Stadium: Anfield

TV: BT Sport

Liverpool have already qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League as group winners so Jurgen Klopp can afford to rest some players on Wednesday.

Porto, on the other hand, are a point clear of third-placed Atletico Madrid so they have everything to play for at Anfield.

The Portuguese side are in an ideal position thanks to the Reds’ perfect start so the visitors to win, draw no bet, at 2.75 is our first Liverpool vs Porto prediction.

A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds

Liverpool completed a superb double over Spanish champions Atletico to seal their place in the last 16 with two games to spare, so Klopp can give opportunities to some of his fringe players in the next couple of weeks.

The Reds have a superb record against Porto in the last two and a half years, winning all three Champions League games by an aggregate of 11-2.

Mo Salah and substitute Roberto Firmino both scored twice in a 5-1 win at the Estadio do Dragao almost two months ago, but that was with Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota leading the line.

Otavio hit the post and VAR ruled out a late goal from Mehdi Taremi in Porto’s goalless draw with Atletico Madrid and they led AC Milan at the break in a 1-1 draw at the San Siro last month, so they are unbeaten away from home during the group stage.

We’re expecting the Reds coach to make wholesale changes for their penultimate game and a third successive draw on the road for the visitors at Liverpool vs Porto odds catches the eye.

A Look at Porto’s Betting Odds

Porto were the favourites to finish bottom of the group before a ball had been kicked but they took four points off AC Milan and were unlucky not to win at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Atletico keeper Jan Oblak said: “Porto were very good. We lacked a bit of creativity and we had few chances. When you play against a team who play on the counter-attack it’s always difficult.”

Porto are flying in the Portuguese top flight in what looks like a three-way battle with Sporting and Benfica, and they have the benefit of an easy cup tie this weekend in the build-up to Wednesday’s game.

That means Sergio Conceicao’s key men should be relatively fresh and raring to go for the trip to Merseyside and they look an interesting prospect at 1.90 to win with a goal start as one of our LIverpool vs Porto betting tips.
