Porto – Liverpool, Champions League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR PORTO - LIVERPOOL
Porto failed to cope with Liverpool’s pressure on Anfield and lost just 0-2. The good thing about the dragons is that the reds decided to save their strength and the result did not swell to more goals in the Portuguese net. They are now expecting Herrera and Pepe in the squad, who are key players. Actually their task is extremely complicated. They should try to score goals at Liverpool and at the same time save their net against counter attacks on the English to avoid a goal.
Liverpool will try to score first and decide the game. Surely Klopp will instruct his players to push in at the beginning and try to score goals as soon as possible. If they do, they will most likely close the second and save forces, which is logical. If they do not, they can make it to the end of the game as it will be extremely complicated to allow two goals, but this is a much more unreasonable outcome. In any case, the reds are on the brink of inspiration, and Porto has almost no chances.
We expect Porto to score a goal with certainty, because, despite all, they had chances at Anfield, and at home they will come out without having much to lose. Liverpool will not have any problems with this, but we are convinced that they will also score, and then the result will not matter. 2-1, 1-1, 1-2 or something similar will be ok for the guests. Porto is going to have a Portuguese title and a Cup, so even getting eliminated from Liverpool is not going to be a big tragedy. Prediction BTTS at 1.77.
- Liverpool is in a series of seven consecutive wins in all tournaments
- Porto scored a goal at home in 24 consecutive games
