Porto vs Liverpool – UEFA Champions League: Estádio do Dragão will be the ground for a very interesting match between FC Porto and Liverpool
Two teams that, when it comes to style, are much closer than the level of their players and the competitions they take part on, domestically, suggest.
I believe that Sérgio Conceição was very pleased with the result of this Round of 16’s draw because, on a context of huge difficulty,
where every opponent brought a lot of problems for the Dragons to solve, this will be the side that will balance things out more in the way of how complicated it is to predict the outcome of this tie.
FC Porto and Liverpool play their matches always very focused on the risks they might take to gain the advantage.
Both Sérgio Conceição and Jurgen Klopp aren’t afraid to take risks offensively,
although the Portuguese manager seems to be more assertive in the way he reads the matches, knowing when it is better to fall back, than the German, that is always looking for a better result.
On a knockout tie, that leaves the decision well in the open, which, in the last resort, increases the chances of the Portuguese club.
The doubt, as this match approaches, will be understanding if FC Porto will present itself with 2 or 3 elements on the central corridor of the midfield.
Without being able to utilize Danilo Pereira, the duo formed by Herrera and Sérgio Oliveira has been an excellent approach on the past few matches.
Having an element with defensive ability on the right wing (Ricardo Pereira) or adding someone to the central corridor (Óliver Torres or André André) will make the difference on the approach of this match, where Liverpool should prioritize the quick attacks.
Porto vs Liverpool – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Making sure that they keep a clean sheet, FC Porto will maintain itself on the fight for this tie.
