    RECENT RESULTS

    Liverpool's last game was a thriller at the Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday.

    The Reds drew 3-3 against Thomas Frank's Brentford in what is one of the games of the season so far.

    Porto meanwhile picked up an away win against Gil Vicente on Friday night.

    The game seemed to be destined for a draw before an 89th Sergio Oliveira winner earned all three points for the Portuguese giants.

      LAST TIME OUT

      The two sides last met in the quarter-finals of the 2018/19 Champions League.

      The Reds won the first leg at Anfield 2-0, before a comfortable 4-1 win in the second leg in Portugal.

      Sadio Mane, Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk scored for Jurgen Klopp's side that day.

      Liverpool in fact went on to lift the trophy that season, beating Tottenham 2-0 in the final.

      FAMILIAR FOES

      And Porto have faced Liverpool on eight previous occasions in European competition, with six of those being in the Champions League.

      And despite the two sides clashing on numerous occasions, the team from Portugal are still looking for their first victory against the Reds.

      They have drawn three and lost five of the eight meetings between the teams in Europe.

      TOP OF THE KLOPPS

      This will be the fifth time Liverpool have faced FC Porto in the Champions League since Jurgen Klopp became the club’s manager in 2015.

      And the Reds have won more games (3), scored more goals (11) and kept more clean sheets (3) against them than any other opponent in the competition under Klopp.

      Can the Premier League leaders keep that run going tonight?

      GOOD EVENING

      Welcome to our live blog of Liverpool’s Group B Champions League clash against Porto.

      Jurgen Klopp and Co travel to Portugal looking to make it two wins from two to start their Champions League campaign.

      It took a stunning Jordan Henderson volley to secure a thrilling 3-2 win over AC Milan at Anfield on Matchday One, while Porto and Atletico Madrid played out a 0-0 draw in the Spanish capital.

      In what is a tricky group on paper, three points away from home tonight would put the Reds well on course to qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament.

      Ten points is the traditional magic number needed to guarantee a passage through the group stages.

      And Klopp’s side are firm favourites to come out on top this evening.

      Liverpool are yet to lose this season in all competitions and currently top the Premier League table.

      Porto meanwhile are also unbeaten this season but are already four points off rivals Benfica in the Primeira Liga after five wins and two draws from seven games.

      Thiago is Liverpool’s only notable absentee tonight, with Klopp able to choose from a near enough full-strength squad.

      Harvey Elliott also remains sidelined full term.

      Kick off tonight is at 8pm, with full team news coming up in half an hour!
