This is a familiar trip for Jurgen
The Champions League has a habit of recycling games, and this match between Porto and Liverpool is no exception. In this competition, these two teams have played six times, including four times under Jurgen Klopp's leadership.
So far, these battles have favored Liverpool, who have won three of the last four encounters between the two clubs. In the Champions League, no team has scored more goals against Klopp's Liverpool than Porto (11).
This week, we're betting on the goals to reign supreme.
On matchday one, Liverpool had to come from behind to defeat AC Milan, but the Reds now have a tremendous chance to seize control of a very difficult group. Porto drew with Atletico Madrid in their first match, so a win in Portugal would put Klopp's side in possession.
Liverpool has a history of performing well at this level of the competition, thus we don't think they'll be eliminated. They've gone undefeated in their previous five Champions League group stage away games (W4 D1), so back them to advance to the last 16 on Tuesday night.
It helps that Liverpool is in good form going into this match, as they travel to Portugal as favorites. The Reds have won four of their previous five games, with three goals scored in each of them.
Under Klopp, Liverpool has a tremendous record at Anfield, having won 5-0 and 4-1 in their two visits. Goals should flow at the Dragao as a result. We're betting for Liverpool to win, and our correct score also sees both teams finding the back of the net.
One of those goals should go to Mo Salah, who has a record of 11 away goals for Liverpool in this competition. The Egyptian has scored in each of his previous five Liverpool games and in five of his past six Champions League matches. Salah has scored in each of his previous outings to Porto, so expect him to do so again.
