Porto has not been accustomed to losing as of late - after all, you have to go back to last season to find the last time that they lost a game in Primeira Liga. Over the course of their first 21 league games, Porto has managed to post a record of 17-4-0, while allowing just 10 goals.

Liverpool, on the other hand, is putting together a very strong English Premier League campaign, as they are 15-9-3 through their first 27 games of the season. This puts them in third place in the league, which gives them a very strong chance of qualifying for another Champions League position next year.

Liverpool has the talent advantage in this match-up, though Porto will be carrying an excessive amount of confidence into this battle.
