The British and the Portuguese giants are ready to meet ¼ of the Champions League. Their first match will take place at Anfield. Can Liverpool deal with the Port in front of your fans? Official bookmakers are in little doubt. But is it too soon to bury the Portuguese? Let's think about this.
For the first time in a long time, "Reds" are close to win the title in the EPL. But that does not stop them a second time in a row to speak confidently and in the Champions League. In the last draw of the main European Cup tournament, the team Jurgen Klopp got to the final, where it lost to real Madrid. Can Liverpool repeat their achievement? Indeed, as can be seen from the results in the domestic championship, the "Scousers" have become stronger.
The current champion of Portugal, too, has a real chance at the title in their country. The port only on additional indicators inferior to Benfica (when an equal number of points) after twenty six rounds. Maybe for the next championship "Dragons" abandon the Champions League? Although it is unlikely. Otherwise they would have done it much earlier.
In last season's Champions League Porto was stopped just Liverpool in the first round of the playoffs. And the Dragons were simply destroyed in its own den – at the dragão stadium. Guests carried them with the score 0:5. And the house quietly issued a goalless draw. Whether the Port to take revenge this season?
Unlikely. Too good for Liverpool this year. Although Klopp's wards and there have been disastrous moments, overall the team looks impressive. Our forecast – P1. That's just to defeat the deal may not be reached. Though the chances for over 2.5.
