The UEFA Champions League match preview - Liverpool vs. Porto - 2nd leg.  Odds to win. Bet on it! Liverpool FC were amazing to watch in the first leg at Porto, handing the hosts their biggest European defeat in history. The scoreline at the end of the game was 0-5. The two teams meet again this Tuesday at Anfield, where Jurgen Klopp's side look to continue their momentum, while the visitors hope to restore their pride.

Liverpool have been playing beautiful, attacking football and are unbeaten in Europe this season. Mohamed Salah has been on fire, scoring in each of the last 7 games and has a total of 24 goals in 28 English Premier League appearances this season. The Reds are set for their first Champions League quarter-final since 2009.

Porto bounced nicely following their first leg loss. They are at the top of the table in the Portuguese league and have won four consecutive games since playing Liverpool, including a Classico win vs. Sporting CP.

The odds for the upcoming game are:

Source: Bet365
Time Stamp: March 5, 2018 7:14am EST
Odds Subject to Change

Liverpool: 11/20
Draw: 16/5
Porto: 6/1

To qualify for quarter finals:

Liverpool: 1/2000
Porto: 100/1


According to the odds, Liverpool are the favourites to win the upcoming 'dead rubber' match against Porto. They do have a visit to Old Trafford coming up four days later, so it is questionable if they will feature their best side.

It should be an interesting second leg match between the two former European champions. How do you think it will play out?
