Liverpool vs FC Porto Prediction & Betting tips
On Tuesday, part 2 of the epic duel of the giants between Paris St. Germain and Real Madrid will finally be on. While a thrilling and dramatic game is expected in the Prince Park, the encounter at Anfield is clearly in the shade. There, Liverpool FC receives the FC Porto. This is not because the two clubs would not bring a European top class. The reason why the game receives little attention on the island is the result of the first leg. The Reds were able to prevail with a 5-0 on the Algarve coast and are thus not only with one, but rather with 1.99 legs in the round of the last eight. In principle, the return leg is almost without any sporting value and has more the character of a friendly match. We therefore expect that both coaches will spare some stars in this exhausting phase of the season and also that the players on the pitch will not exhaust themselves to the last. A footballing treat is not to be expected and that’s why we think betting on just a few goals is the best option. The kick-off is as usual in the premier class at 19:45 on Tuesday evening.
Liverpool rushes for weeks, almost months, from victory to victory and must now be included in the Mitfavoritenkreis for the Champions League. Jürgen Klopp has managed to give the Reds stability and consistency, and so it runs both nationally and internationally around. In the Premier League, the LFC is on track Champions League and in the premier class itself is the entry into the round of the top eight teams only pure formality. Especially offensive trio Roberto Firmino, Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane harmonize well and is the reason that Liverpool after leaders Man City by far the second-best offensive in the league.
Above all, these days we have to call Sadio Mane, who has flourished since Philippe Coutinho’s departure and scored five times in the last three games. Whether all three attackers on Tuesday will be on the pitch, must be doubted. Jürgen Klopp controls the load of his stars in this phase of the season very consciously. Really many changes are not planned according to own statements, in order not to endanger the progress.
At FC Porto, similar to Liverpool, it is running well in the national league. After six wins in a row, the lead in the Primeira Liga was extended to five points ahead of Benfica. The second pursuer Sporting was defeated at home at the weekend with 2: 1 and thus has eight points behind. Also in the cup is the entry into the final after a 1-0 in the first leg of the semi-finals (again against Sporting) close. In this very good season, the appearance in the Champions League against Liverpool FC came at exactly the right time.
All the greater was the disappointment, as they were relentlessly showed the limits in front of home crowd at 0: 5. The adventure Europa is over and the squad around coach Sergio Conceicao can fully concentrate on the double win. The motivation to exhaust themselves on Tuesday will be limited by the FC Porto players. Certainly, the team wants to say goodbye with decency.
