Soccer predictions 1X2 for Liverpool vs. Porto
Liverpool welcomes Porto in the first match between the two teams from the 1/4 finals of the Champions League. The duel will be played this Tuesday, April 9, at Anfield stadium as the hosts are favorites for the victory.
For the second consecutive year, the Liverpool and Porto teams are facing direct elimination in the Champions League. Last season, the English club eliminated its 1/8-finals after a 5-0 win in the first match of Estadio Do Dragao and retired Anfield’s 0:0 rebound. This time, the first match is on the English field, but will Liverpool again make a convincing advance before the rematch?
Jurgen Klopp’s team beat Southampton 3-1 on Friday, making a complete turnaround in the match. With this success, the hosts returned to the Premier League first place, but Man City has a lesser match. Liverpool’s focus is now on the Champions League, where they reached the final last season. The English should be happy with the draw after scrambling with teams such as Barcelona, Juventus and Man City. The hosts will be without an important player in the upcoming match – Andy Robertson after the defender received a defeat card against Bayern at the 1/8-finals when Liverpool won 3:1 on the Allianz Arena and secured his place on the 1/4 finals .
Porto’s turn this season managed to pass the 1/8-finals in the tournament, after having played very strongly against Roma on the back of their own field and won 3:1 after extra time. The Dragons now have a very tough task and they know this well after confronting Liverpool 13 months ago. Host coach Sergio Conceicao should have made his conclusions and not allowing the opponent to easily create a goal position as was the first match last season. Porto will be without a direct attack on Vincent Aboubaka, but Moussa Marega is in good shape and in the lead. Porto has good players in the offensive and I think he can score a shot at this match because Liverpool has not kept a dry net in its last five games.
