This match is Liverpool’s first in the knockout stages of the Champions League for nine years. With Manchester City over the hill and far away in the Premier League, this is the Reds’ only chance of silverware in 2017-18.
Porto, by contrast, have made it this far five times since Liverpool last did. They will provide a stern test for Jürgen Klopp’s team. Sérgio Conceição’s side are top of Liga NOS in Portugal, and have not lost any of their 21 league matches this season.
