You have to fancy Liverpool heading into this one as they have a great record against Porto. Porto have started well in the Champions League and drew at Atletico Madrid.

It’s going to be tough but the way Liverpool have started, you have to get behind Jurgen Klopp’s side. I fancy Liverpool to Win to Nil.

I like Diogo Jota to Score Anytime. He’ll be up for it playing back in Portugal. He should start and he’s always dangerous.

I fancy Liverpool to dominate in Porto on Tuesday so I’m on Liverpool -1 on the Handicap betting. Since drawing against Chelsea, Liverpool have scored three goals in each of their five games. They could do that again here.

Porto haven’t shown enough in their big games this season and they haven’t created enough chances to trouble a team like Liverpool.

I also like Mohamed Salah to Score Anytime. He’s scored in the last five for Liverpool. When he’s in form, you expect him to score at least once in every game.
