FC Porto v Liverpool Team News

The Reds comfortably coasted to yet another Champions League play-off success last week after first-half goals from Naby Keïta and Roberto Firmino had put their side 2-0 up in the tie in which Liverpool have widely been tipped to qualify next and meet either of Barcelona or Manchester United from Tuesday's action.

In the 5th minute it was obvious Porto were going to endure a long night at Anfield, and their competence in dealing with this Merseyside side was largely questioned, when Keita stroke from the edge of the box for the ball to deflect off one of the Blue defenders and go in, before Firmino poked home a simple cross 20 minutes later. The minute it was over Jurgen Klopp's men knew they would be up here against a Chelsea team in 5 days' time battling for the long-awaited PL title still up for grabs.

The Reds boss Klopp made just two changes by replacing Milner for Robertson, who was unavailable in the first leg because of suspension, and Matip for Lovren, who is expected to start once again in Portugal. Not only Liverpool kept the title race well going but produced the kind of composed victory against Chelsea's type of opposition as if it was a side from somewhere the bottom half as Reds eased to a 2-0 win beating the Blues in every possible aspect.

Meanwhile, The Dragons were back in Portugal to produce a quality display away at Portimonense, whom they swept aside 0-3 with two changes to the line-up as well as Liverpool, but Sérgio Conceição's team do have much bigger a task ahead of them and it is not Roma, who were 2-1 up from the first leg travelling to Portugal.

Teams' Potential Starting Line-ups:

FC Porto (4-4-2): Casillas; Telles, Felipe, Pepe, Militao; Corona, Herrera, Pereira, Otavio; Marega, Soares.
