Liverpool beat Arsenal 4-0 to prepare for their Champions League match against FC Porto at Anfield. The Reds have dominated Group B, and they've already been certified as the group's top finishers as they head into this encounter.
With two games remaining, they have 12 points, seven more than second-placed Porto. Liverpool is undefeated in this group, and with 13 goals scored, they are among the Champions League's top scorers this season.
Liverpool have only lost one match this season, and in each of their last 15 outings, they have scored two or more goals. They have one loss in the last ten Champions League matches, but four clean sheets and four wins in five in the same competition at home.
In this match, Porto will be looking for their first ever win over Liverpool. They've played the Reds nine times and have lost six of those encounters. Liverpool triumphed 5-1 in their previous meeting in this group, continuing a trend of high-scoring contests against Porto.
The Portuguese giants have failed to score in three of their past five encounters with Liverpool, but they will be hoping to upset Liverpool at Anfield after a strong domestic run.
Porto have only kept one clean sheet in their previous five matches, despite scoring more than two goals in four of them. They haven't had much luck in the Champions League thus far, but they have three clean sheets in their previous five games and have only failed to score once. They've drawn both of their away matches in this group so far this season.
Porto will be aware that Wednesday's encounter is their greatest chance to beat Liverpool for the first time, but an injury-plagued and much-changed Reds side still poses a big threat.
Expect a much closer match than the one between the two clubs in September at the Estadio do Dragao, but Klopp still has the attacking prowess and skill to lead his side to a minor victory. This match will be won by Liverpool.
KICKOFF TIME: The match between Liverpool and Porto will go down tomorrow at 9PM Nigerian time.
