Liverpool is undoubtedly one of the best clubs in the world right now, as they are battling Man City tooth-and-nail at the top of the EPL and are coming off of a finals appearance in last year's Champions League tournament.

Liverpool pushed past Bayern Munich in a surprisingly easy fashion in the Round of 16, beating the German powerhouse 3-1 in aggregate.

FC Porto, on the other hand, got past AS Roma 4-3 to advance to their meeting against Liverpool. While FC Porto is surely happen to be in the quarter-finals, they will be looking to extend their season against Liverpool.

Liverpool and FC Porto are both two stingy defensive clubs, with both teams giving up roughly 0.60 goals per game so far this season.

Liverpool certainly has the talent advantage, plus they are enjoying a tremendous amount of momentum right now. FC Porto will need to pull out some magic in order to advance against the hard-charging Liverpool side.
