Liverpool’s European dream continues on Tuesday as Portuguese side Porto visits Anfield in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will be looking to advance and reach the semi-finals after defeating Bayern Munich in the last round.

Porto, on their side, upset Roma ahead in the round of 16 and will be giving the Reds a run for their money on Merseyside tonight.

Liverpool will be heading into the game with confidence following Mohamed Salah’s goal against Southampton on Friday – his first in nine games.

And with the advantage of being at home in the first round, the Reds will be looking to make the most of the clash.

The Merseyside team will be challenging the visiting side with key players such as Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk, both proven valuable in the round of 16.

But while Liverpool are favourites ahead of the quarter-finals tonight, Porto will be a tough challenge for the Merseyside team and should not be underestimated.

Porto overturned a 2-1 first leg deficit to beat Roma 4-3 on aggregate thanks to a dramatic extra time penalty from Alex Telles in the round of 16.

The Portuguese team also have plenty of football veterans, with Iker Casillas’ leadership to be the key to a successful game for Porto.

In the last Champions League round at Anfield, Liverpool saw a goalless draw against Bayern Munich, before beating the German side 3-1 away in the second leg.

Jurgen Klopp will be keen for his men to get off to a fast start in the tie, avoiding a similar situation to the thriller away in the second leg of the last round.
