Liverpool FC were pitted against Porto in the last-16 draw after Klopp’s men finished ahead of Sevilla, Spartak Moscow and Maribor in what was a relatively straightforward Champions League group.
In fact, the Reds were 7-0 winners against Maribor and Spartak to score an incredible 23 goals in the group stage – more than any other Premier League club in the competition’s history.
Klopp and his players can take encouragement from Porto’s poor record against the Reds given the Portuguese giants have failed to beat Liverpool FC in four meetings in Uefa competitions.
Gerard Houllier’s Liverpool FC side beat Porto over two legs in the Uefa Cup quarter-finals after Danny Murphy and Michael Owen scored in a 2-0 win at Anfield to secure an aggregate victory.
Dutch forward Dirk Kuyt scored in Portugal to help Rafael Benitez’s Liverpool FC side secure a 1-1 draw in Portugal in the 2007-08 Champions League group stage.
The Reds were 4-1 winners in the return game thanks to Fernando Torres’ brace as well as goals from Steven Gerrard and Peter Crouch at Anfield.
Traditionally, Estadio do Dragao has been a tough ground in the Champions League.
Indeed, Leicester City lost 5-0 to Porto in the 2016-17 competition. However, Porto have struggled in recent seasons and have only managed to win four of their last 10 home games in the Champions League.
Liverpool FC, on the other hand, collected five points from their three games on the road in the Champions League group stage after stalemates with Sevilla and Spartak Moscow before a 7-0 win at Maribor.
The Reds lost 1-0 to Braga in their last trip to Portugal to leave Liverpool FC with a record of two wins, three draws and four defeats at Portuguese opponents.
New Betfair customers can get 30/1 enhanced odds on Liverpool FC to beat Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Porto v Liverpool FC prediction
Liverpool FC have been in prolific form in the Premier League this term. The Reds have scored 61 goals in 27 games in the English top flight. Only Paris Saint-Germain scored more goals than Liverpool FC in the Champions League group stage. Porto have lost seven of their 10 two-legged ties against Premier League opponents. Liverpool FC manager Klopp has refused to adopt a conservative approach to crucial games throughout his Anfield tenure. It’s difficult to see the German coach going defensive on Wednesday night. Liverpool FC should edge out Porto in the first leg to take a lead back to Anfield.
Prediction: Porto 1 Liverpool FC 3
