FC PORTO VS LIVERPOOL PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
FC Porto is a familiar name in the Champions League but looking back at the other 3 names in Group B, their chances are not much. Remember last season, the Portuguese representative reached the quarter-finals before receiving a 1-2 defeat against Chelsea. Starting this season with 7 unbeaten matches in the domestic league, FC Porto got 16 goals and received 4 goals. Their strong point is their solid defense and stubborn play, which is clearly shown in the first match that drew Atletico 0-0 at the Metropolitano.
In the last 11 matches in the Champions League, FC Porto only received 8 goals against Chelsea, Juventus or Manchester City. With what has been shown, FC Porto will not easily succumb even if the opponent this time is Liverpool.
Liverpool is quiet in the transfer market and only focuses on renewing contracts with the pillars. They are completely confident in the quality of the squad they have at the moment. 8 unbeaten matches, including 6 victories in the new season, Liverpool have scored 21 goals and only received 6 goals. This shows the strength of this team when full of talented guys. Van Dijk was back and immediately promoted his leadership role. The solid defense helps The Kop deploy a controlled playstyle smoothly. However, it must be admitted that their ability to score has decreased in the last 2 seasons when Firmino and Mane are no longer in top form. Jurgen Klopp is also more cautious, especially in the matter of accepting lessons after the injury storm last season. With what has been shown, it is not surprising that the upcoming matches are tight and few goals are scored.
Falling into the group that is said to be death with the presence of Atletico Madrid and AC Milan, both teams will have to be very cautious. The trend of safe play is also reflected in the last ⅔ times of the 2 teams’ last confrontation when there were no more than 2 goals scored.
