Match Preview: Porto vs Liverpool

Date & time: Wednesday April 17th, 20:00 BST

Where: Estadio do Dragao

What channel: BT Sport Football

Referee: Danny Makkelie (NED)


With the match against Chelsea now successfully bypassed, we move back to European football and travel - again - to Porto.


The Portuguese champions put up much more of a fight at Anfield last week than they did in either of the 2 legs last season but the Reds still came away with a 2-goal lead from the game.


So to Portgual tomorrow and a much more dangerous Porto side will believe they have a great chance, if they can match the levels of last week.


For LFC, the decision rests with Klopp as to whether he 'rests' any of his key men with a trip to Cardiff coming on Sunday but it may well be the best time to give the likes of James Milner, Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi some serious game time.


Injuries & Suspension

No a lot to report really, other than the news that Joe Gomez has returned and could play some part tomorrow night.


Dejan Lovern misses out with illness, whilst Andy Robertson returns. Adam Lallana will also travel, but the game - once again - comes a little bit too soon for Oxlade-Chamberlain.


For Porto there are no injury concerns but the home team will welcome back their captain Hector Herrera and also defender Pepe.


Form

Porto: W-D-W-L-W (all comps)

Liverpool: W-W-W-W-W (all comps)


Predicted line-up

With 4 Premier League games remaining, all 4 that have Liverpool as massive favourites, it's likely we'll see at least a little rotation tomorrow night.


Not least of all because there are now serious competitions in certain positions and players that will be looking to play their part in some key games.


Starting line-up: Alisson, Milner, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Origi, Salah and Firmino.
