Liverpool vs FC Porto – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On the 1st leg at Estádio do Dragão, we have seen Liverpool battering FC Porto 5-0, what leaves the Dragons already halfway out of the competition.
In that sense, I believe that we might have a match where both teams play without many cautions.
It is rare to see a match without goals scored by Liverpool. They have great offensive arguments, but sometimes their vertiginous playing style leaves the team somewhat exposed at the back.
Not even the home advantage smoothens that aspect, with the Reds conceding goals in 6 of their last 7 matches played in Anfield.
With that said, and considering FC Porto’s quality on the attack, I believe we will have goals being scored by both sides.
