Tip Porto - Liverpool
Porto are six points clear at the top of the Portuguese league and have only conceded ten goals in 21 games. They don't quite keep that great defensive record when it comes to the Champions League. They conceded ten goals in six group games coming second behind Besiktas. Six of those ten goals were conceded at home. They are undefeated in their last 15 home games in all competitions since a 3-1 home loss to Besiktas in the Champions League group stages.. Six Liverpool group games produced 29 goals and 15 of those came in three away games. They are third in the Premier League and their 27 league goals have seen 92 goals scored. Liverpool have conceded 31 Premier League goals and that's not quite the defence of a side that is going to become Champions of Europe. Go for over 2.5 goals to be scored in this match.

Conclusion Porto - Liverpool
Liverpool continue to score plenty of goals but still have plenty of problems at the back. That will sooner or later find them out in this competition but Porto isn't a bad draw for them. The Portuguese side aren't unbeatable at home and this looks like being a game with over 2.5 goals being scored in it. The trouble with Liverpool is you can never be sure whether that's because of how many they score or concede.
