Paul Connor’s preview ahead of Liverpool v FC Porto in the fifth game of the Champions League group stage at Anfield… AFTER yet another international break and a 4-0 thumping of Arsenal on Saturday night, recent regular visitors and 2004 Champions League winners Porto return to Anfield in the fifth game of the competition’s group stages.

What would normally be a raw and exciting European contest under the Anfield lights may lack that same cutting edge tonight.

Liverpool have swept aside their so-called ‘Group of Death’, advancing to the knockout stages with two games to spare after a well-earned 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid on matchday four.

As for Porto, they return to Merseyside on the wrong end of a 15-2 aggregate score against Liverpool, dating back to February of 2018.

That emphatic 4-0 win comes after an imbalanced run of form, with forwards Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Takumi Minamino all getting on the scoresheet.

While there are no high stakes in terms of qualification for Liverpool, they’ll know that confidence and cash will both take further boosts with a win against Porto.

They know the task that lies ahead better than most, and their muscle memory of wins against the Portuguese Champions will serve them well.
