Liverpool vs Porto LIVE: Champions League latest score, goals and updates from fixture tonight



Thiago on Liverpool challenge and self improvement under Klopp

The pressure is off for Liverpool tonight as they host FC Porto in the Champions League, but it’s still all to play for as far as the visitors are concerned. The Reds won each of their first four group stage games to seal top spot and qualification to the last 16, while the Portuguese side sit in second with two games to play – just one point ahead of Atletico Madrid.

While some supporters would perhaps like to see the Reds rotate to an extent and preserve the first-choice stars who will have an inevitably busy run over the December fixtures, Jurgen Klopp’s chances of doing that are hampered by ongoing injuries, especially in midfield. They come into this match full of confidence and looking sharp after a thumping win over Arsenal at the weekend, with the Reds having lost just one game in all competitions this term.

Porto are not much worse than that, in fact, with just two defeats for themselves in 2021/22 – but one of those came against the Reds two months ago, when the the trident of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane each found the net in a 5-1 thrashing. Follow all the team news and match action as Liverpool host Porto below:

Liverpool 0-0 Porto

19 mins: Nice from Liverpool. Tsimikas plays a lovely ball around the side of the Porto defence and finds Minamino, who timed his run. Minamino had Salah and Mane waiting in the middle but Mbemba steps across to cut out the cross. Konate wins the header from the resulting corner but it’s straight at Costa.

14 mins: Liverpool have their first effort on target as Matip meets Williams’ cross – but it’s straight at Costa. The goalkeeper then pinged a wonderful first-time pass towards Dias, but Oxlade-Chamberlain read it and had got back to shut down the counter attack.

Liverpool 0-0 Porto

12 mins: HUGE chance! Liverpool were on the attack but Konate is disposed on the halfway line after the ball gets stuck under his feet. Suddenly Porto were clear. Dias squared to Otavio, but he steers wide from eight yards! Tsimikas did very well to get back and make the tackle as Otavio looked to strike. There is a brief penalty check but Tsimikas won the ball. A let off for the hosts.

Liverpool 0-0 Porto

6 mins: A couple of ‘nearly’ moments for Liverpool – first Pepe looked to have made a mess of his clearance as Mane is played in behind, with goalkeeper Costa not helping matters by rushing out, but the defender did just enough to steer the ball away.

Liverpool again look to hit Salah quickly but Pepe stepped across to intercept.
